Serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk made a career out of speaking at events — now he wants to shake up the industry and turn it into a new business

And from the looks of it he wants to launch VaynerSpeakers (a speakers bureau of sorts) that will help line up guest speakers for events.
This makes sense as it can be another outlet for his client athletes at VaynerSports to get more money and gigs and leverage their brand equity while being another selling point for VaynerSports to say “hey look we can get you gigs too that pay up to $150k or more just like Gary gets”
And while many “social media” vayner nation die hard followers and people that parrot Gary’s message will love to be on the circuit our guess is they will use Gary’s celebrity and sports connections and clients to fill these events with motivational speeches with an opportunity to earn up to the $150,000 Gary Vaynerchuk makes giving speeches as well.
One thing is for sure Gary is aware that he earns the $150k per speech because he actually executed on creating 100 million dollar business and the “3 to 60 million wine business” for his father Sasha Vaynerchuk before that.
So unless the speakers he represents have shown execution in something or have the brand equity his athletic talent does we doubt he will allow speakers that are just blow hards represent at events for a monetary fee where they add no value to the audience.
Currently, VaynerSpeakers website is just an inquiry form but we will keep you posted if that changes.
Update February 8th, 2019 – Vayner Speakers announces their speaker line up via Twitter, Instagram and there website.
Currently their “browse” section says coming soon
