Message from the President

Welcome! It is my distinct pleasure to introduce you to Leading Authorities.

When I began this company as a lecture bureau more than two decades ago, it was built on one overlying principle: the power of relationships to build connections and to create great speaking engagements for our speakers and customers. As times have changed, Leading Authorities has stayed ahead of the curve to expand into strategic event design and production, but we still value the importance of strong client relationships.

We make it our personal goal to get out and see our events in action to ensure smooth engagements for our clients. We’ve helped many clients achieve business goals, build brand loyalty, overcome obstacles, and produce a return on investment – we’d love to add you to that list! We look forward to working with you.


Mark French

President & CEO Leading Authorities


I believe that is the high-touch nature of our agency that sets us apart from others. I am proud of our veteran staff who work tirelessly to produce events and manage every detail for our talent.
