On Tuesday , April 21st we sent out an email to our customers (speakers, speakers bureaus, and event organizers) called “Top Ten Motivational Speakers”. It was the beginning of a regular series intended to further eSpeakers’ goal of connecting speakers and audiences.
Over the last few days we’ve received both positive and negative feedback about our Top Ten Motivational speakers list. We’re always open to feedback from our customers, and we appreciate the thoughts on eSpeakers producing a “Top Ten” list. Several speakers presented insightful reasons (that had not occurred to us) why a list like this has some negative consequences. We agreed with the reasoning and have decided to discontinue this Top Ten campaign.
We’re disappointed to cancel a campaign that we had hoped would benefit many of our customers. We know it’s the right decision, even though it means taking a step backwards for a moment in regards to our goal of connecting speakers and audiences.”
But don’t worry — we’ll continue to look for other ways to help speakers organize, promote and grow their business.
