Greater Talent Network, Inc. is the leader in speakers bureaus, bringing the most dynamic speakers from business, politics, technology, entertainment, literature and sports to audiences across the world. Each of the renowned faces on our roster has chosen GTN to help them share their remarkable stories.

At the heart of GTN is CEO and founder Don R. Epstein. 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 kept GTN at the cutting edge of the lecture industry. Clients like Mark Burnett and Michael Lewis were both just starting along their now immensely successful career paths when they joined GTN.

GTN was a phenomenal agency to work with and I hope our organization continues to use them in the future. I wanted you to know what amazing employees and speakers you have and how much Indiana University appreciates the assistance in making this event possible.
