We decided to add a keynote to our event less than one month out and CMI was a pleasure to work with throughout the process from Sales to Execution.
"We would love to work with them again, nothing comes to mind for what they could have done better."
I so appreciate your attention to every detail.
"I want to thank you both for working with me….you are such professionals and wonderful representatives for Clint and no doubt many others. I so appreciate your attention to every detail….and thank you for putting up with me and all my questions!!!! You have patience!!!!!"
-Teri Schmidt, CEO, Experience Sioux Falls
This was our first time booking a speaker at this level and we appreciate your patience and assistance as we navigated our own internal requirements.
"You provided amazing communication leading up to the event, especially from my team’s perspective – this was our first time booking a speaker at this level and we appreciate your patience and assistance as we navigated our own internal requirements. We loved working with Karen and Samantha and would love to work with you again."
-Mekala Ravichandran, Deloitte
I used cmi speaker management to book Tim Sanders as the Keynote Speaker and I was really impressed - and thankful - for the service they provided me.
Obviously launching a new conference is anxiety-inducing, even in the best of times, but working with Karen and had her team put me at ease, as they helped me predict and plan costs and provided round the clock assistance to make sure Tim knew exactly where to be, at what time, and was prepared to kick off the show. The audience absolutely loved Tim's presentation, which was customized and adapted to our chosen topics, and our first event really made an impact. I'm getting ready to do the next one now and will work with cmi again."
-Jonathan Allen, Entrepreneur Quarterly
cmi was thorough, prompt, professional, and friendly – which made them so easy to work with!
Looking forward to working with them on future bookings."
- Valinda Washington, Asset Marketing
I want to tell you how happy I am to have found cmi.
From the beginning, you developed a relationship with me and worked so hard to help me find the perfect speakers. And you did. They were absolutely perfect and exactly what I was looking for. Once we settled on our speakers, then I was well taken care of by cmi staff.
I have worked with many speakers bureaus in the 25 years I have been putting on conferences. cmi stands out as being exceptional. Your selection of speakers, attention to detail, professionalism and willingness to always go the extra mile are what makes cmi my first choice. Thank you and your staff; you are clearly a fantastic team!"
-Jean Capon, National Rural Electric Cooperative Association

- Jamie Thomas, American Equity
cmi speaker management was very easy to work with.
They helped us negotiate a speaker fee that fit our budget and framed the presentation to our audience. Overall, it was a great experience working with their team."
-Sean Tucker, Children's Mercy Hospital
I sincerely appreciate all that you’ve done for me and our event over the past three years.
It’s really great to work with such a great partner in this planning and know that we can turn to your company for superb recommendations!"
- Lindsay LaNore, ICBA
The service and communication with the cmi organization was simply outstanding!
I look forward to working with the cmi Speakers team again in the future!"
-James Lenz, CUES
In my opinion Karen Harris is one of the best in the business at Speaker Management.
She is highly respected by speaker agents in the US, Canada and Internationally. When Karen calls a speaker’s agency like ours and says she has a great new speaker we sit up and pay full attention. Over the years she has brought us speakers we had never heard of and with Karen’s advice and coaching those speakers have become a major part of our business. cmi under Karen’s leadership has gone from being just a supplier to a great partner in our success. Wonderful person to work with and brilliant at helping a speaker develop their brand.”
