About Us

The Platform Professionals was formed to provide meeting planners with dependable, seasoned, professional speakers who have the same overriding philosophy—to offer clean original humor with a tailored message for audiences in associations, universities, corporations, and other organizations. This unique group provides meeting planners with the assurance that if you like one of them, you will surely like all of them.

All of the Platform Professionals use humor and original stories to convey their message and each one has a unique approach with distinctive presenting skills. Their goal is always the same—to take the guesswork out of choosing an individual to open your meeting, close your convention, or leave banquet attendees laughing hysterically.

All seven members of the Platform Professionals have earned the designation Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) from the National Speakers Association and six have been inducted into the Council of Peers Award for Excellence Speaker Hall of Fame (CPAE). Three members have served as president of the National Speakers Association and four (including emeritus member Doc Blakely of Texas) have been honored with the Cavett Award, the highest award in their profession.

The Platform Professionals come from diverse backgrounds including small towns, private businesses, large companies, and higher education. Some are best suited for keynote presentations and others do longer programs that train as well as entertain. It is this diversity that makes the Platform Professionals a frequent and valued choice for every setting.

Above all, these speakers are what their name implies: Platform Professionals.
