JLA has been described as "the UK's leading speaker bureau" (Financial Times), and provides speakers, presenters, and performers for over 2500 corporate, industry, and public sector events every year. Spanning business keynotes, motivational speeches, awards ceremonies, entertainment acts, and after dinner speakers, JLA is committed to finding the right artist for your audience. 

Whether giving insights into the state of the economy, sharing knowledge of business and leadership, or offering expertise in technology in an age of disruption, conference speakers should excite, inform, and inspire delegates. Motivational speakers share stories and lessons from all corners of the world - from the arctic tundra to the peak of Everest to the Olympic stadium. Presenters hold events together - whether that means bringing professionalism and energy when facilitating a daytime conference, or wit, charm, and glamour to hosting an evening awards ceremony. Entertainment ranges from stand up comedy, to warm and insightful after dinner speakers, to big name music acts.

With a team dedicated to finding the best new talent, JLA has a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and experience, and your JLA agent is committed to working with you to find the best talent for your live event.
