International Speakers Bureau is a Dallas, Texas-based speakers bureau specializing in motivational speakers, corporate entertainment and corporate training.

History[edit]

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.[citation needed] 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.

In 2000, the company won the Sprint #1 Small Business in America award[1] and was recognized by Bank One as one of the top female-owned businesses in the United States.[citation needed]

International Speakers Bureau filed for bankruptcy in 2013 in the state of Texas.[citation needed]
