“Anastasia has helped me transform my speaking business by booking me throughout California on a regular basis. She’s been such a pleasure to work with; always on top of everything even when I’m not and so kind throughout the entire process. I’ve also done consulting with her several times and she’s been instrumental in helping me create branding and messaging. I highly recommend Anastasia! She is well worth it.”

Chester Santos-1

“In more than eight years now, Anastasia has helped to secure quality speaking engagements for me that have helped me to grow my business.  Many agencies that I've worked with in the past haven't even come close to delivering on what they promised, and they've also been at times pretty difficult to work with.  This hasn't been the case at all with Anastasia.  She's always delivered on what she's promised and is a pleasure to work with.  Deciding to sign on with Access Speakers was one of the smartest things that I've done since starting my speaking business.  I highly recommend Anastasia and her services.”

Steven Campbell-1

"I met Anastasia more than seven years ago when I had retired as a University professor and began my new career as a speaker. Anastasia has been a godsend, not only as an agent but as an experienced business person who helped me...and still helps me...understand how business works and how I can make money doing what I am now doing, which is speaking to thousands of people in hundreds of audiences. Anastasia arranged, and is still arranging, many of those “gigs.” "

Aimée Lyndon-Adams-1

“I recently participated in Anastasia's Get Booked to Speak 4-week tele-program and received so much value. I just love it when others share the fruits of their own hard work and research, providing shortcuts, tips and proven techniques and Anastasia did this and more! It's clear that Anastasia is a pro and I benefited hugely from investing my time and money with her.”

Amy Gray-Cunningham-1

"I hired Anastasia to help me develop my speaking platform. By day I'm a marketing manager and my primary focus is on branding and digital marketing. After talking with Anastasia, I was pleasantly surprised that I hadn't thought of all that she had suggested. It was as if a light bulb went off and I felt like "oh, yeah! why didn't I think of that!" But it just goes to show you when it comes to marketing and branding yourself, it always helps to have a new perspective. I highly recommend Anastasia!"

In addition, Anastasia is a delight to work with. She provides great ideas and possibilities for speakers for us and is very prompt, reliable and precise in her communications with us.

"I am a part of the Pleasanton Young Professionals and we host quarterly professional development meetings. We've been a group for about 5 years and have recently struggled finding worthy speakers for our organization. Anastasia was recommended, and I wish that we would have had access to her organization years ago. We've been working with her since last year and what a blessing she is to our organization and team. I couldn't recommend her enough. Thank you for all that you do!"

 

~ Danielle Fratellone - Speaker Chair, Pleasanton Young Professionals/Chamber of Commerce

“Anastasia has been a gift to Marin Professionals. From her Speaker's Bureau, she provides highly talented, extremely engaging speakers who, wow the room with their presence. Every speaker has made such a heartwarming connection with the group that their return is eagerly anticipated. I am always amazed as Anastasia consistently stays in touch and offers new speakers with powerful content.”

 

~ Diane Greer, MS - Former Speaker Chair, Marin Professionals

“I truly enjoyed and valued my relationship with Anastasia and Access Speakers during my 2+ year tenure as the breakfast facilitator for the Oakland breakfast for NAWBO-SFBay.  As a breakfast facilitator, I had to find engaging speakers, with topics that would draw new attendees and members alike, and could speak succinctly for 30 minutes and where people wouldn’t complain the talk was too sales-y. This is a tall order month after month and Anastasia was a huge part of my success. People loved the speakers; their energy and warmth and I could always count on Anastasia to correctly steer me in the right direction for the best fits for our audience.  Plus, her speakers are reliable and professional. You won’t regret working with Anastasia. She’s a gem!”
