I founded the Robin Wolfson Agency on the premise that the right alchemy of speaker + audience can deepen conversations about our interconnected world, and how to make it better.
I became a speaker agent nearly 30 years ago. The job has given me the amazing opportunity to champion speakers who have dedicated their lives to making a positive impact on individuals, organizations, and society. I’ve had the honor of working with Anita Hill for 25 of those years, supporting her mission to improve the treatment of women and minorities in and out of the workplace. I traveled to China with Paul Krugman as the liaison for his speaking tour there, helping to manage the inevitable changes and keep things running smoothly. And most importantly, I’ve been able to cultivate relationships with the inspiring business executives, non-profit leaders, and university faculty and students who all work for the entertainment and education of their audiences.
I’m a tenacious advocate for my speakers. I’ve built many speakers’ careers from the ground up, and helped others expand their profile, improve their visibility and gain access to new markets. I spend months and even years to get them in front of the right audience. But I’m also deeply invested in delivering value to the organizations that bring them in. I will pay special attention to your organization's strategic goals and program objectives. That way, my speakers’ keynotes will benefit, inform and inspire your audience in exactly the way you intend. I have worked with a wide variety of industries—finance, insurance, healthcare, national associations, academic institutions, town halls, non-profits and others—and experience has taught me the kind of speaker and content that works best for each.
If you can’t find a speaker on my website who fits your objectives, that’s no problem at all. I have strong relationships with many speakers who are not on my official roster. I also frequently collaborate with other speaker bureaus to make arrangements for their clients. The joy of the job is finding a speaker that truly matches the personality of an audience and the expertise they are looking for. When you work with me, you can trust that I’ll go out of my way to make this happen.
