Speaker Co-op is THE ORIGINAL Business Speaking Organization. • First to Bring Business Speakers Together – www.Meetup.com/SpeakerCoop - In January, 2006, we held our first meeting in Dallas, reaching out to businesspeople and subject matter experts who speak as a Business Strategy. We’re positioned right in the middle of the Speaking Spectrum between Toastmasters and the National Speakers Association. • First Website to Find Business Speakers – Since March, 2006, SpeakerCoop.com has been a Resource for Event Planners and Organization Volunteers, helping them find great speakers for their meetings, conventions, and events. • First Business Speaker Organization in Multiple Cities – In March, 2010, Speaker Co-op held our first meeting in Houston - www.Meetup.com/Speaker-Co-op-Houston. • First Business Speaker Booking Service – In October, 2012, we started making phone calls and sending emails for a select group of Speakers. Now, we’re putting Speakers in front of audiences all over the world. • First Meetup Speaker Community to reach 1,000 Members.
