Africa Speakers Bureau launches talent management platform

Africa Speakers Bureau has announced its talent management platform, AfricaSpeakersGroup.Com.

The platform is built to connect keynote speakers, top performers, influential thinkers, authors and knowledge carriers, masters of ceremony, and so on, to opportunities in the most efficient and rewarding ways, according to a statement signed by Patience Paul-Ezra, its head, Communications and Experience Team.

The platform, which debuts as the first professional speaker agency in Nigeria and first Africa-focused speaker bureau on the continent, seeks to make finding and hiring the right kind of talents for specific events a lot easier for event organisers, corporate organisations and government agencies.

“Given my over 10 years of experience in organising conferences and planning events, I have a good understanding of how difficult it could be to find and secure the right kind of talents that best fit specific events,” said Odinaka Iloh, chief executive officer, Africa Speakers Bureau.

“And contrary to expectation in some quarters, the rise in the number of virtual events going on across the world at this period, occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic, has not made finding and hiring of the right talents any easier,” Iloh said.

AfricaSpeakersGroup.Com, with a focus on Africa and the world, has the ambition to assemble the best array of talents on the African continent and beyond, while offering a very efficient talent booking experience for clients.

With the platform, event organisers and speakers are able to concentrate their efforts on delivering better experiences for event participants, the statement said.

While the platform opened on Monday (today) for talent registration and public viewing, it will be open for business on Monday, November 2, 2020, it said.
