MORE THAN JUST AN AMAZING SPEAKER AGENCY.

DEPTH is a group of like-minded partners focused on improving and enhancing the experience of speaking – as a speaker, as a company looking for subject-matter experts, or as a keynote contributor looking to get more exposure and opportunities.
The DEPTH team is passionate about representing YOU – your passion for sharing your message in the right way, connecting the audience and the topic in the way you’d like to engage.
We focus in four areas
Workshop Development and Delivery
Subject-Matter Expertise to Deliver Customized Corporate Solutions
Workshop Speaker Representation
Keynote Branding, Advocacy, and Representation
The idea for DEPTH began with starting our own speaker’s bureau, but treating it differently. Rather than simply pair a speaker with a venue, we would be much more hands on in the process. Not only would we negotiate contracts and advocate for the speaker, but also help train them in any areas they were weak in as well as handling their administrative pieces like creating promotional videos and handouts for them. The process grew organically, until we discovered a whole new way to advocate for speakers. This process would lead us to creating The In-DEPTH Experience.
The In-DEPTH Experience utilizes a sophisticated tool to pinpoint exact processes in businesses that need fine-tuning. The tool requires us to have a bank of subject matter experts to deploy into companies in a similar role to a consultant. This is something we already had access to, so it served as a logical progression for our young company. Utilizing this tool enabled us to follow through with our mission to get speakers in front of more audiences that they would thrive in front of.
As we grew our team of subject matter experts, we began to notice that the realm of public speaking was far outdated. Speaker bureaus are simply a “middle-man” for placing speakers into venues, without much knowledge into what the speaker offers and what the organization is looking for. We knew this needed a complete overhaul. DEPTH’s founders understand that not everyone is born with the ability to speak eloquently in front of large audiences. In fact, most of us fear public speaking even more than we do death! But just like any other skill, becoming great at speaking takes hundreds of hours of preparation with feedback and expert coaching along the way. When we went looking for speaker advocates, the playing field suddenly looked bare. There is a need all across the country for companies providing the services we do, yet very few are providing these resources. DEPTH now found its place to set up camp.
Today, DEPTH is primed to be your one-stop shop for all your speaking needs. No matter if you are just trying to get better at speaking to gain more clients for your business or are ready to undertake keynote presentations in front of thousands, we are ready for you. John Hope Franklin describes it best when he writes, “We must go beyond textbooks, go out into the bypaths and untrodden depths of the wilderness and travel and explore and tell the world the glories of our journey”. It’s time to share your knowledge with the world and let them hear your story – it’s time to join DEPTH.
