“I have not yet met Anastasia in person, but felt it is important not to delay this over-due recommendation any longer. She was strongly recommended to me by one of our speakers and after a short phone conversation, it became obvious that she would be able to help us with our speaker engagements and that, she did!
Anastasia took the time to learn about our organization, the audience, and arranged for the appropriate speakers / topics. She is very organized and has a great habit of following up, before and after the event, to ensure everything is per plan.
I feel very fortunate to have her as part of our speaking engagement team and highly recommend her to all who are in search of quality speakers for their events.”

“As the Rotary Club of San Rafael Speakers chairman I have used Anastasia Schuster’s Access Speakers on three occasions for speakers and I have a fourth speaker scheduled in the future.
Anastasia Schuster and her Access Speakers are excellent. She is a pleasure to work with and the speakers are outstanding. On two occasions I was left stranded by sudden cancellations of my speakers. Anastasia stepped right in and provided far better speakers than originally scheduled.
Being Speakers Chairman requires that I completely and adequately screen speakers for our club. I can rely on Anastasia to provide the very best. Anastasia is in the right place with her service.
I strongly recommend Anastasia Schuster and her Access Speakers operation.”
~ Oak Dowling, Chairman Speakers Committee, Rotary Club of San Rafael
“Anastasia Schuster is a real go-getter and connector! She supplied four dynamic speakers to a recent conference I curated and hosted – Steven Campbell, Julie Anderson, Linda Patten, and Stephanie Staidle: http://wp.me/P3BN7v-sb
During the conference, Anastasia was in constant work mode, helping her speakers and others whenever necessary. After the conference, Anastasia provided me with invaluable feedback. She has also provided me with numerous invaluable introductions.
Anastasia is a pleasure to work with and a pleasure to know!”
~ Johanna Wise, CEO, Connect*Work*Thrive
“As the Program Committee Co-Chair for the Rotary Club of Tiburon-Belvedere, I have been working with Anastasia at Access Speakers for nearly a year. Our challenge is finding an engaging speaker every week for our demanding audience. I had the good fortune of finding Anastasia last year and our members have been impressed with each and every speaker. Whether the speaker was a professional clown or organic farmer, we were enlightened and fully engaged with each speaker. I highly recommend Anastasia at Access Speakers anytime you want your group to be entertained and enlightened.”
~ Paul Wichman, Co-Chair, Program Committee, Rotary Club of Tiburon-Belvedere
“Anastasia Schuster has done a great job getting speakers for our SIR’S # 147 group. The topics covered have been: Elder Law, Elder In-Home Care, Trusts for the Elderly, Maintaining and Expanding Your Mental Abilities, Exercises to Minimize Back Pain, and Living in Berlin During the 1948-1949 Berlin Airlift.
The speakers that Anastasia has provided are well prepped for meeting the requirements of our audience. They have been punctual and have kept the attention of our group.
I heartily recommend her services and speakers.”
~ Richard Zanotti, Little Sir, SIR’s #147
“Re: Anastasia Schuster d/b/a Access Speakers
The undersigned has been arranging speakers for Rotary Clubs for more than 35 years usually as a committee member. This year we decided as a club to no longer have a Speaker’s Committee and rather I am it for our 65-member Rotary Club of Ignacio.
I met Anastasia about 8 months ago. Through her business, she arranged 7 speakers for our club at no cost. We take a survey each week as to the acceptance level of that Speaker of the Week since we are well aware the speaker choice has a lot to do with keeping, as well as securing members for Rotary.
Each speaker was on time, well versed in their role and performed well beyond expectations. Now we have raised the expectation bar when the speaker is supplied by Access Speakers.
We trust Anastasia for not only does she represent real people, with interesting stories, but rehearses them so their performances receive very high marks of appreciation as expressed by the membership.
I can heartily recommend that you consider using of her agency to provide and satisfy your speaker needs.”
~ David Kurland, Program Chair, Rotary Club of Ignacio
“Anastasia provided me with more than 6 outstanding speakers for the Vallejo Rotary Club. The audience, the members of the Vallejo Rotary Club, are a very challenging group. I explained the challenge and gave Anastasia carte blanche to select the speakers. She more than rose to the occasion. I had the members evaluate every speaker and, without exception, every one received more than 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5.
Anastasia has a great inventory of speakers and I strongly recommend that you consider Access Inspiration as a great source of highly qualified and effective speakers.”
~ J.D. Miller, Program Chair, Rotary Club of Vallejo
