What We Do

by definition

Speaker Management

spē-kər ma-nij-mənt

Also known as swiss army knife, juggler, shoulder to cry on and life guard.

Speaker managers help shape their speakers’ careers and guide them toward new opportunities while avoiding pitfalls.
They are responsible for the speakers’ public appearances, maintaining close relationships with speaker bureaus and manage their contracts and negotiations. Successful speaker managers are the ones that act as managers, agents and marketing & communication experts and lead a team of creative professionals such as stylists, video producers, web developers, ghostwriters and publicists to help speakers with their overall positioning and prepare them to meet and set future trends.

Personal Branding

pər-sə-nəl bran-diŋ

Also known as the crossroads of reality and perception.

Personal branding is not about self-promotion. It is about putting forward the qualities that define you as an individual and enhancing your overall professional image. Personal branding is a journey of defining yourself and committing to the values and behaviors you support. Managing your personal brand requires you to be a great role model and a voice that others can depend on. A personal branding expert will help you create and view your personal brand as an asset that must be managed with the intention of helping others benefit from having a relationship with you and/or by being associated with your work.

Presence & Inspired Leadership Coaching

pre-zᵊn(t)s & lē-dər-ˌship kōch-iŋ

Gravitas, communication skills & appearance.

Presence and influence are leadership requirements.
A presence & inspired leadership coach enables you to discover and develop your unique personal presence and authentic leadership style, by helping you define who you want to be and identify the values that shape your everyday decisions. Coaching is personalized and conducted one-on-one for a defined period of time. By the end of the coaching period you will not only renew your way of thinking and understand the way other people see you, but you will have all the tools, knowledge and experience to perform as a visionary leader in your area of work – by inspiring others.

Online Presence

ȯn-ˈlīn pre-zᵊn(t)s äp-tə-mə-ˈzā-shən

Stand out from the crowd & share your ideas with the world.

Online presence is your brand’s online reputation. Primarily, your online reputation is affected by how easy it is to find your brand or company online and by the type of content you promote and the followers engagement your brand receives. Digital branding is your online unique identity. By optimizing your online presence you make sure that your brand values are communicated properly on the Internet, you make your brand easily accessible and targeted to the right audience and you help your brand rise in search engine rankings above your competitors.

If there was a “Genie” for speakers and consultants, its bottle would say MSC Bureau. These guys are ridiculously good at what they do and at the same time, the most kind and generous people you will ever meet. If you are a speaker, a consultant or anyone who wants to build a brand out of yourself, you can’t afford not to work with them.
