Greater Talent Network, Inc. is a perennial leader in bringing audiences the world’s most dynamic speakers from business, politics, technology, entertainment, literature and sports. Each of the renowned faces on our roster has a remarkable story to tell and has chosen GTN to help them share it. For over 30 years our commitment to making your event a smashing success begins with guiding you every step of the way and ends with a standing ovation.
At the heart of GTN is CEO and founder Don R. Epstein. Epstein’s interest in the lecture industry dates back to his college days booking concerts and speakers for the student body. When he founded GTN in 1982, Epstein promoted avant-garde, cultural icons like Hunter S. Thompson, Abbie Hoffman, and Timothy Leary.
Over the years, Epstein’s ability to recognize talent on the cusp of their careers has catapulted GTN into the country’s most prestigious speakers bureau. Clients like Mark Burnett, who was just starting out as a TV producer when he joined GTN; or Michael Lewis, who had just published Liar’s Poker, have gone on to build stellar careers that have changed industries.
Today GTN is recognized as one of the most prestigious networks of great thinkers and storytellers, always at the forefront of their industries. From The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, to Forbes and CNN, GTN has earned a national reputation as the most innovative speakers bureau in the industry.
