The Spotlight Agency connects high-calibre talent with opportunities worldwide. We represent celebrities from entertainment, sports, food, décor, and more, and unite them with brands, digital content, film, and television.
In 1995, Speakers Spotlight, the acclaimed speakers’ bureau, was started with the belief that the needs of conference organizers, meeting planners, and speakers could be served in new and better ways, and that a speech can be the catalyst for positive change in the world. Speakers Spotlight has since booked more than 25,000 speaking engagements in over 30 countries.
In 2011, Speakers Spotlight launched a division specifically devoted to help match celebrity talent with clients who wished to work closely with them. The division quickly grew and, in 2017, Speakers Spotlight launched The Spotlight Agency as a way to better shine a light on the services we provide.
As a company, we are committed to supporting a variety of charities and community organizations whose important work reflects our values. Below are the organizations we are actively working with now or have supported in the past.
Red Cross Ukraine Emergency Appeal
Given the devastating situation in Ukraine, we are currently making donations in support of the Red Cross Ukraine Emergency Appeal to help provide vital aid to the people of Ukraine during this difficult time.
National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation
The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation is helping Canada move forward on the path to true reconciliation. We are committed to supporting survivors and honouring the many children who never made it home.

Ronald McDonald House Charities
RMHC takes care of families, so families can be there for their sick child. They provide families with a place to stay, where they can sleep, enjoy home cooked meals, do laundry, be supported by other families, and receive the care that can help make their journey a little easier.
Starlight Children’s Foundation’s WARD + ROBES
Many hospitalized teens feel a loss of control when their lives start to revolve around treatment, therapies, and appointments. The simple act of choosing their own hospital gown helps them feel more relaxed and comfortable. Through WARD + ROBES, Starlight Children’s Foundation works with top designers to create unique hospital gowns that teens actually want to wear.
We are honoured and excited that as a result of our valued partnership with you, we are all making a difference!
