Total Management Company is a curated speaker management firm for an elite group of the world’s most exciting speakers. We have partnered with countless corporations, associations, bureaus, agencies and speakers across the nation and earned a well-deserved reputation for superior service, integrity, and professionalism.


As a management company, we focus exclusively on the individual speakers we manage. We respond to all speaking inquiries, handle negotiations, manage their calendars, issue agreements, coordinate logistics, collect and track payments, as well as other administrative, sales, and marketing tasks. Most of our speakers have approached us because they’ve reached a point where the demand for their programs is high enough, they can’t keep up with everything on their own. Or they want to streamline/outsource the booking process to a knowledgeable team who knows the ins and outs of the speaking world, so they can focus on running their business, writing, consulting, or to have more free time.

Liaise with speakers bureaus, production companies, event professionals and meeting planners
