As an international public speaking agency with a combined 65 years of experience, OBSV Group’s mission is to “give agency” to individuals and communities by amplifying voices and ideas all over the world. We do so by brokering event-based relationships that produce powerful Moments of truth, education, and inspiration.
Through OBSV Group’s boutique but elite roster of some of the world’s foremost thought leaders and industry mavens, we have consistently motivated individuals to challenge the assumptions they hold, to augment their inventory of ideas, and to expand our cultural fields of view. Our collective work builds Momentum by generating interest in issues of regional and global importance.
Every Movement begins with a Moment that gains Momentum. In collaboration with our network of speakers, our influential network of clients are producing events that are galvanizing a universal audience around OBSV Group’s foundational areas of interest. We stand on the shoulders of giants who have given us the playbook on creating Movements that endure.

"OBSV has been a wonderful partner in helping us drive diversity, equity and inclusion within my organization of 3k engineers, ux experts, product managers, and project managers. The speakers from OBSV routinely expanded my team's perspective, clearing the path for deeper, more reflective conversations about how to truly build an inclusive environment."
"Working with Observation Group has been a life-changing experience for me. From our initial meeting, I have felt supported and empowered. James and Jeremy have helped me increase my confidence as a speaker and expand my footprint nationally to reach diverse audiences with my story and mission of increasing access to the technology industry. The team at OBSV is first-class and I'd wholeheartedly recommend them to any leader with a message to share with the world."
"I approached Observation Group Speakers looking for a keynote speaker for an event. I had never worked with a talent agency and was intimated at the process. Their team quickly eased my concerns. What stands out from my experience, is how responsive they were and how easy they made every step of the way. The keynote speaker was a highlight from the event and related to our audience on so many levels. I'm looking forward to booking more talent through them."
"The OBSV team are pros and one of my favorite agency teams to deal with. They do right by their talent and they do right by their business partners. Fair, fun to work with, and impeccable with their word!"
