“The Speakers Showcase was an excellent opportunity to hear from many qualified speakers. It will be hard now deciding which ones to hire. The energy of the day was amazing.”
- Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead
“This was an innovative experience that opened my eyes to the value of utilizing Nationally Speaking for selecting the talent for our events. Thank you for your willingness to organize such a well-organized and first-class experience so close to our organization!”

“The ND Nationally Speaking Speakers showcase was refreshing. Where else can you watch professional speakers give you their best in 10 minutes and be inspired, moved or just plain laugh yourself silly. This "speaker speed dating" is a brilliant idea and I will be recommending speakers from this showcase to my organization. What a day!”
- Park Co Realtors, FMAAR Board Member
“I thought the showcase was a great way to see a variety of speakers. Our organization usually books the same type of speaker for every conference, but this event got me thinking about how we could use more motivational or humor based speakers at our events. Great job to Holly and Nationally Speaking!!”
- ND Trade Office
“The Showcase is a great idea. It really helps to see the speakers live and in person and even have the opportunity to speak with them directly.”

- Watertown Convention & Visitors Bureau Watertown, South Dakota
“It was so helpful to hear the speakers give us a taste of what they are about. Beyond that however, the short speeches were truly inspiring and I left feeling very motivated. I even sent a text to my supervisor saying thanks so sending me!”
- Anne Carlsen Center
“This was a fabulous event! I gained so much insight into choosing appropriate speakers for future events related to cancer survivorship. I definitely plan to use Nationally Speaking to help book our next guest speaker-especially because I know of others who have used the organization and have had great success!”

“Very informative event. As an event planner being able to hear in a live setting a 10 minute presentation about the presenter and topics they can cover was great.”

“An emotional day, filled with inspiring and educational messages which made me laugh and cry. It was an unexpected experience which I loved.”

“I enjoyed the day very much. The hospitality was great the speakers kept me engaged throughout the whole day. Even if a specific speaker wasn't necessarily a match for the events I am planning I was able to take something away from each of their messages.”
- NDSU Research and Technology Park
“Loved the Showcase! Left with so many awesome quotes from the speakers, wish I could hire all the speakers for my conference!”
“I really enjoyed the day, everything was perfect from the layout, the food, and the speakers! Can't wait for next year!”

“Attending the Nationally Speaking Showcase was a wonderful opportunity for me to see many wonderful speakers and entertainers.”
“I enjoyed every single speaker; some were more inspirational /motivational while others were more humorous but still got an uplifting message across. I left the workshop so very uplifted.”
“This was my first time attending this type of event. It was a great way to get a "feel" for the various presenters. This allows me the opportunity to take information back to my organization and provide some options to explore in more detail as to how the presenter may be a "fit" for our meeting.”
“I enjoyed the showcase and being able to hear each speaker's message in a short 10 minute segment was excellent! I recommend this to anyone that does event planning. A lot of great messages and an uplifting experience.”
“I appreciated the chance to preview many speakers in one location on one day. It was an effective, efficient way to go speaker shopping.”
