A Personal Note from Angela Goble, President, Midwest Speakers Bureau

Everyone has a story. We all deal with something challenging either at work or in our personal lives. It’s when we share these stories with others that we connect and grow.

I’m fortunate—I work with many people who are great at telling their story. By connecting the right speaker with the right story for the right audience, I feel we help make a difference in the world. There’s no greater satisfaction than seeing the speaker on stage, watching an audience react, and knowing that you helped create that experience, one that influences them personally or professionally.

For me, it’s so much more than filling a time slot. Finding the right fit is what gives purpose to my work and meaning to my day. It’s why I love what I do.
