How we do it!
Chris Reagan presenting at the Seacoast Career Schools Event We signed fresh talent this past year that will help us continue our focus on providing our customers with exceptional keynote speakers, entertainers and trainers. This effort will insure that our customers get a tremendous return on their investment. There are thousands of speakers and "experts" that speak in the market today. Many of them are quite expensive and some do not provide the value they should. We help our customers by providing meeting and event solutions that won't break the budget, that exceed expectations and deliver exceptional results!

Master of Ceremonies: Take your awards event, annual meeting or dinner to a new level with one of our talented entertainers. A fresh voice can add the extra spice to what can be a long night for many in attendance. Sponsors can be highlighted, comic relief can be inserted, and just plain old fashioned fun can be brought back to your event. Contact us now for more information on our talented team.
Keynotes without all the C- notes: Yes we can and do work with all levels of speakers and entertainers. Our speakers fees range from $1,500 all the way to six figures if your budget and audience justifies that kind of investment. We pride ourselves in representing top performers and providing exceptional value to our customers without killing their budget. One of the reasons our customers are so loyal is that we tell it like it is and always work to provide them with a solid ROI. Read on to find out about our fabulous "Keynar" money saving offer
Training programs: Looking to provide memorable breakout sessions and training programs? Look no further that the GAPSB team. One of the ways we can provide unbeatable value is our "Keynar"programs. Our speakers have combined their keynote programs with a supportive breakout session. We package this combination to reduce travel expenses, give you greater impact during and after your event and the best part is it all avaialable at a reduced fee compared to separate purchases.
Comedians : Comic relief without the headaches. Many of you know the challenges of working with comedians. We take the stress out of the equation. Our comedians know corporate audiences and know how to provide just the right amount of humor without hurting anyone. They leave the "night club" act at the night club and keep their programs clean and respectable so you don't have to worry.
Buyer alert : Beware of the low price comedian or part timer. Low price often means little or no experience and investing a bit more can save your whole event from disaster.

New for 2010. Online on demand training : Is your training budget squeezed? Can your organization afford $100 a month to train all of your employees in just the area you need them trained in? We have the system that can keep your employees growing and improving. This is the most cost effective way to bring world class education and training to any business and organization. Please contact us about any of our fantastic programs that will help make you and your team "GET AHEAD!
