Qualifications for Becoming A Speaker


Working with GDA as a Speaker

GDA Speakers has been in business for almost two decades.  We pride ourselves in only working with the best speakers in the business, and have built our reputation as a trusted partner by truly vetting all of our speakers. To be a member of the GDA speaker family we need to see a video of you in action as well as a referral from a client or from another trusted speaker.  

 If you think you would be a good fit with GDA, please send your speaking materials, press kit etc. to our speaker liaison Leigh Gathright at leigh@gdaspeakers.com.

Our Unique Speaker Portal

The speakers we work with have the ability to access their speaker portal through GDA's state-of-the-art portal system.

Speakers are able to log on to review, update and add their speaking materials. The information then feeds to our internal database which is used by our agents for client proposals, agreements, and our website (with your permission). Speakers have access to the portal 24/7.

In addition, our speakers can access their GDA booking history, upcoming events and see all outstanding invoices.  

Taking it to the Next Level

We are often asked for advice on how to take it to the next level, and we are so excited to be able to offer you the ideal solution. Josh Linkner is one of our High Priority speakers.
