Chris Fisher
Director of The Fisher Agency

The Fisher Agency is a specialized service originally formed in 1988 to help schools, districts, and educational associations find quality speakers for audiences of children, teenagers, educators, school administrators, and parents.

With great care and concern, The Fisher Agency has gathered the finest speakers from across the United States and Canada. Think of us as your one-stop station where knowledgeable and friendly guidance can be found.


  • We have thourougly studied speakers within the education market and can give objective opinions of them.
  • Our bureau representatives will listen to your needs and budget guidelines, then recommend the best possible speakers for you to consider.
  • Further literature, demo videos, pricing and scheduling information will be supplied upon request.
  • Since most speakers are frequently on the road, our service will save you time, phone calls and frustration.
  • All the necessary paperwork, down to the last detail, will be monitored by our agency.

With strategic planning, local networking, and the help of your agency representative, there are ways to afford your favorite speaker. Fees generally range from $600 (on a shared day) to $10,000—with a few exceptions. The most economical approach to bringing a quality speaker into your area is to share the day with another school or build a tour.

Many speakers offer discounted rates for consecutive days. Also, we will let you know when a specific speaker is scheduled in your area, allowing travel expenses to be prorated.

You will not pay one cent more to use our services. Fee integrity is very important to us! We quote speakers’ fees and travel expenses exactly as each speaker would quote. Also, we will negotiate on your behalf when multiple or consecutive days are scheduled, or when you have an unusual circumstance.

  • Jared was a pleasure to work with as always. His artistic/musical talents combine well with intuition into an appropriate blend what students need to hear and want to hear. His messages resonate with students:

    •  Students need inspiration to regain their focus for the future.

    •   We always need to look past obstacles towards living a better life.

    •   Finding our own true passion in life is critical.

    •   Positive schools, families, and communities are filled with individuals that appreciating others.

    •   Bullying those that are different has no place in life.

    •  We all must assist in stopping the poor decisions that are made each day.

    •   Forming life-lasting relationships with friends and family provides a foundation for success in life.

  • Mike’s story and message is inspiring. All of our students and staff comments have been so positive after listening to Mike’s speech. Could we just somehow bottle him up and then sprinkle him around whenever we need a little lift????!!! Thank you from all of us Mike…we love you! – the Alfalfa Crew

  • Our organization coordinates multiple programs each year which utilize many different national level speakers and presenters. To do this we work exclusively with the Fisher Agency. Beyond working with all the top level speakers in the Country, Chris and his team are extremely reliable, easy to work with, and ensure from start to finish that your program will be a success.

    From the time we first partnered with the Fisher Agency over ten years ago, our program has grown each year due to the ever increasing quality and diversity of speakers they have to offer. The Fisher Agency has time and time again delivered and I highly recommend them for your next program.
