About Us

Anastasia Violet Lipske (fka Schuster) ~ Owner/Founder

Having booked more than 1,200 speaking engagements on behalf of her speakers it would be safe to say that Anastasia knows what it takes to get booked!

Before creating her high-touch speakers’ agency, she had more than thirty years of experience in the tourism industry. She gained vast event management experience and has been involved in more conferences than she can count. Her sales, marketing, and PR know-how helped her build credibility with international suppliers whom she helped grow their businesses.

Through creating women’s retreats and organizing social media conferences, Anastasia has first-hand knowledge of the other side of booking speakers. She speaks the language of speaker chairs and event planners who are tasked with finding great speakers for their meetings/events. It pleases Anastasia to know that she is helping people grow their business, brand themselves as speakers and spread their message.

Sandra Isaac ~ CGW, Chief Gig Wrangler

Having worked in an administrative position at a university for more than 15 years, Sandra had more than enough experience to start her successful virtual assistant business. She quickly discovered her passion for working with speakers and began focusing on them as her ideal clients. This passion inspired her to begin her own business of booking speakers.

Sandra has booked her speakers on countless paid and unpaid stages. She loves hearing her clients say, “It was a great event, I really enjoyed speaking and making new connections.” Additionally, her relationship with event organizers has made it easy for her to propose new speakers for their events.

With this experience, it only made sense to have her join the Access Speakers team! As the Chief Gig Wrangler, Sandra works with clients who are seeking to make a difference in the world through their message as well as build their businesses. Like a gifted matchmaker, she books our speakers with audiences that they want to speak to and are a good fit for.

Lorena Gies ~ CGO - Chief Gig Officer

Lorena has oodles of experience in administrative work that makes her the perfect person to offer support services to Access Speakers.

She spent 12 years working for the City of San Francisco assisting the top dogs in the Controller's Office and the Mayor's Office. She then slowed her pace down when her kids were young by working in their elementary school's office. A good way to keep tabs on them too! Brilliant!

From there Anastasia lured her into supporting her new business and Lorena's been keeping this company running smoothly ever since. From the moment a speaking engagement is booked she handles all the communications between the speakers and the speaker chairs so both sides have all the details they need. This allows them to focus on what they do best and leave the rest to us.
