International Speakers Bureau is a Dallas, Texas-based speakers bureau specializing in motivational speakers, corporate entertainment and corporate training.
International Speakers Bureau was founded in 1992 by Michelle Lemmons-Poscente, who started the business in a spare bedroom in her parent’s[clarification needed] home and eventually landed her first booking of the late Charles Kuralt a few months later.
In 1993, Lemmons-Poscente moved her offices to Dallas and began to expand the business. The company grew quickly in large part due to Lemmons-Poscente's early adoption of the Internet. In 1997, the company was recognized[by whom?] as one of the top female-run businesses in Texas and also partnered with Yahoo! to create Mentorium, an early attempt at interactive online learning.
International Speakers Bureau filed for bankruptcy in 2013 in the state of Texas.
