TEN Talent, formerly known as Make Waves, manages the careers of a handful of the most inspirational and impactful talent in the world who have stories to tell and lessons to leave. They are world-class experts on a number of the most essential business topics, and their thinking adds huge value to the events and organisations they speak to. We work closely with our clients, speaker bureaux, agencies and meeting planners to ensure that the best speakers, thought leaders and other talent are placed in order to deliver and land those messages – and potentially develop a longer-term relationship with your organisation.

The people we manage are the best in the business and will massively engage and inspire your audiences. We work closely with our talent before any event to make sure they fully understand your business and your desired outcomes, and we support them to deliver your messages effectively.
