What's New




25th AnniversaryAt Capitol City Speakers Bureau, we've experienced some major changes over the last 25 years. In 1993, email wasn't yet used by the masses. Google hadn't been founded. The Dow teetered around 3,300. In January of 1993, a start-up company named the Capitol City Speakers Bureau began operations. Client contacts were stored in the Rolodex pictured above. Our first website didn't even launch until four years later!

But change hasn't been the only constant for us throughout our 25 years in business. Our superior customer service and our respected relationships with speakers and event planners remain steadfast even as we adjust and grow. Twenty-five years later, we are grateful for both the changes and the constants.

We no longer use that Rolodex, but today we book the most prominent business leaders, sports personalities, motivational speakers and healthcare experts across the industry! As we commemorate 25 years in January 2018, we are celebrating each and every opportunity to help thrill your audience and make your event a tremendous success. We extend our deepest gratitude for your trust and support!

Finish First

Most of us feel we were made for something more, but we're often afraid to allow ourselves to be competitive because we think our finishing first might somehow rob others of their chance to shine. In his newest book, Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, Scott Hamilton encourages the hidden potential, the champion within all of us, to come out.
