Who can Request a Speaker?

A requesting organization (Requestor) is any business, government entity, organization, club, group, church, etc. that is seeking a speaker for their meeting or function. These events may include breakfast, dinner or lunch meetings, chambers of commerce events, professional organization conferences, department meetings, and the like.

What is the Requestor’s role?

When a requestor receives the speakers’ contact information, it is then the responsibility of the requestor to interview, vet, negotiate and coordinate with, and otherwise fulfill obligations that are between the speaker and the requestor. The engagement constitutes a contract between a speaker and a requestor and Central Exchange is not a party to that contract.
