About The Elite Speaker Network

We are NOT your typical speakers bureau

Elite of the Elite

Over the past 15 years, we’ve curated the “Elite of the Elite” – the TOP Speakers that will make the greatest impact in their respective niches.

Extensive Application Process

We have each Elite candidate go through an extensive application process, and only accept those we feel are one of the best in their industry, and provide real solutions to their audiences’ problems.

Niche Exclusivity

Moreover, this program has the benefit of niche exclusivity. This means we make sure to strategically select speakers who are in different niches, so there’s no conflict of interest.

Elite Speakers Network

Once accepted into the Elite Speakers Network, you will be represented as a topic exclusive Elite Speaker on our website. This website will be marketed and promoted to meeting planners nationally.

About Pete Vargas

Pete Vargas teaches people how to grow their businesses and spread their message through stages. In 2003, his life was deeply impacted by one man on a stage–and since then he has dedicated his life to the power of stages.

Since then, he and his team have booked over 25,000 stages worldwide - and generated tens of millions of dollars of revenue through those stages. In 2016, he founded Advance Your Reach - a company with a mission to impact one billion lives through one million stages across seven spheres of influence.

Pete believes your Signature Talk is the most powerful marketing tool you have and that stages are the fastest way to grow your business. Through years of testing, he’s perfected the “Stage to Scale” system - a three-part framework that helps speakers, entrepreneurs, financial advisors, service providers, nonprofits, small business owners and many others land speaking engagements and leverage stages to grow their businesses and organizations

Pete has booked legendary speakers including Ryan Deiss, JJ Virgin, and Shark Tank’s Daymond John. He’s also shared stages with titans such as Michael Phelps, Robert Cialdini, Howie Mandel, Sally Hogshead, and Brendon Burchard.
