We look forward to continuing our great relationship for years to come!”

Director, Corporate Operations and Communication


“We had the absolute best experience with CCSB and Terry Foster! I would hire him again in a heartbeat! Fun, humble, energetic and truly passionate. Thank you, Terry, for your amazing presentation!”

Billings Clinic

“Every step of the way, I felt as though you were my partner, working with me to get the very best results. That’s certainly comforting when the pressure is on. I look forward to our continued association.”

Director, Public Relations

The Carle Foundation

“Thanks, as always, for your assistance in providing CBAI with excellent speakers for our annual convention. It’s a pleasure working with you. I’ve got the popcorn and soda ready for our get together to choose great speakers for next year.”

Director, Education and Special Events

Community Bankers Association of Illinois

“Capitol City Speakers Bureau is our first choice when we need speakers for meetings and conferences, or entertainers for special events. Capitol City listens to our needs, understands our budget and brings us true professionals before, during and after the event. As all event planners know, the speakers and entertainers are what people most frequently recall about an event, and Capitol City has been a wonderful partner to find the speakers who make our events stand out.”

Manager, Marketing Communications


“Year after year, I am thoroughly impressed with your expertise and knowledge in helping us find the right speakers for our conferences. From humorous to motivational to technical to industry-specific, we’ve given you some very tough assignments and you have found quality speakers to perfectly match our needs. From small divisional meetings to large national conferences, you consider all aspects of the event including budget, location, logistics, appeal, and audience. Everyone at Capitol City Speakers Bureau is a pleasure to work with and is extremely professional, helpful, and organized! They take the pressure off of putting a successful event together and help you through each step of the process. One of the main reasons I continue to work with your bureau over others I have worked with in the past is that you really listen to our organizational needs and take the time to thoroughly vet each of the speakers before you recommend any of them. You evaluate each speaker and clearly communicate how they fit our requirements as well as any areas that might not match. Your honesty and integrity continues to win my business year after year. You have become a dear and trusted friend.”

Assistant Vice President, Learning and Development

Horace Mann Companies

“I honestly cannot think of anything you could do to improve on the excellent service you provide. This has been one of the best experiences I have ever had in obtaining a speaker for an event with our organization. You all did an outstanding job. Thanks!”


Health Alliance Medical Plans

“I would like to take this opportunity to tell you what a pleasure it is to work with you and your staff. During the planning of IHCA’s Annual Convention and Trade Show, I need to focus on a multitude of details. Thanks to you, choosing speakers and emcees for our premiere convention events is not one of them. You instinctively know who will appeal to our audience and always keep our budgetary constraints in mind. Questions and/or concerns I may have are always addressed in a timely manner, and I have found everyone at Capitol City Speakers Bureau to be professional in all things. Thank you again for making my job so much easier!”

Vice President

Illinois Health Care Association

“I have worked with the Capitol City Speakers Bureau for every IMAWA convention since at least 1994 and have been among the Bureau’s most loyal clients because of the excellent service we receive year after year. Mike Klemm has assembled a team of highly effective professionals who help meeting planners on any sized budget make smart decisions when hiring speakers, and they take care of EVERY detail on our behalf. If you’re looking for a speaker, breakout speaker, or entertainer, I highly and sincerely recommend Capitol City Speakers Bureau.”

Executive Director

Illinois Movers' & Warehousemen's Association (IMAWA)

“Thank you for all your assistance in providing excellent speakers for my events. You do such a great job in assisting us in the selection process. The staff is always a pleasure to work with. Once again, thanks for all your help in making our conference a success.”


Illinois Farm Bureau

“Once again, your recommendation for the speaker at our Annual CDC Breakfast turned out to be right on target. Terry Bradshaw was the best we’ve ever had for this function. So what do you recommend to top him? I’m not concerned. I know you’ll come through. You always do.”

Director, Corporate Communications

Mueller Company

“Rita is a gem to work with! Our experience working with your bureau was a 10 out of 10..we would use CCSB again!”

Navicent Health

“If you are looking for a keynote for a conference – large or small, I highly recommend Capitol City Speakers Bureau. They have helped us for many years find excellent speakers – all have been highly rated in our post conference evaluations. The staff are fantastic to work with and offer many great speaker options.”

Senior Manager, Conference Services

Premier Inc.

“There is absolutely nothing you could have done better. The level of professionalism was a gold star. The prep that went into our event from Capitol City was excellent which made the execution flawless. We are all very pleased. Well done!”

Sentara Healthcare

“For 20 years you have been an excellent partner in helping me to develop and deliver quality programs. Your team’s work ethic, integrity and personalized service are unparalleled in the industry. You have provided countless speakers that have informed, entertained, provoked and challenged my attendees. CCSB makes my job easier and makes me look good. ‘Thank you’ hardly seems enough for your great efforts and dedication to meeting my needs as a customer.”
