CABS is proud to announce its upcoming affiliation with Speakers’ Spotlight, one of Canada’s most highly-acclaimed speakers agency. The details and engagements of this affiliation are to be disclosed. Nonetheless, we are proud to introduce them to the CABS family. Read more about them below.
Speakers’ Spotlight was co-founded by Farah and Martin Perelmuter in 1995 – the same year they got married, moved, quit their jobs and took an entrepreneurial leap of faith. Although they were a young couple with minimal business experience, no staff and no office, they poured their meagre savings into something they could call their own. They identified an opportunity in a crowded marketplace, and despite having no industry experience or contacts, they did their research, created a vision of what they wanted to accomplish. Farah and Martin pursued their dream with intense drive, not allowing themselves to be swayed by the judgments of others, the setbacks they faced, or challenges that lay ahead. They used the spare bedroom in their apartment as their office, initially sharing a telephone and having Martin be the “company courier”. They had gone from two healthy incomes to zero, and had no contingency plan, but they knew what they wanted to do, and what needed to be done. They believed in what was possible. During the next fifteen years, and a veritable rollercoaster of risk, determination and innovation, their business has become Canada’s leading speakers bureau, and one of the world’s largest and most respected.
