This is why prominent business leaders and thinkers engage with us: for our expertise and connections that bring you face-to-face with your buyers and those who influence them.

Whether we’re helping shape existing agendas or creating new ones tailored to your big idea, we put our reputation and network to work for you.

Stern also exclusively represents some of the world’s leading gurus in all sectors of business and academia for paid speaking engagements with global companies and organizations.


 Speaking Platform Strategy

TED might be your dream engagement; it also might not be the right audience to make an impact on your brand. We identify the most influential (non-paid) platforms aligned with your objectives – and then we help turn strategy into opportunities.

Speaking Opportunities (Non-Paid)

We put speaking platform strategy into action, leveraging your ideas and our relationships to secure (and in some cases, negotiate or even create) valuable engagements that will help you achieve significance in the eyes of your audiences.

Strategic Introductions & Partnerships

This is our strength – drawing from our agency’s relationships with experts and authorities, and from our proven approach to original research, to connect you with like-minded and subject-matter relevant audiences and organizations that can amplify awareness of your ideas.

Influencer Marketing

We’re not talking big budget campaigns or celebrity endorsements (though those may have their place). We don’t define influencer marketing as a paid initiative. Instead, we focus on identifying and connecting you with individuals and organizations that have the niche, loyal and trusted networks you want to reach.
