"67 years. When a company has led in its field for that length of time, there's a tendency to talk about how the world has changed over the years. Or perhaps to boast a bit about our growth and success during this period..."
"Don and Ellen Walker and their extraordinary team at HWA have represented me for my Speaking Engagements for over a decade. HWA is the best. They have always demonstrated unmatched professionalism and unsurpassed excellence. Knowing that HWA is in my corner has given me the freedom to spend most of my time on the work of the Clinton Foundation."
President Bill Clinton
"We have worked with just about every agency in the country, but I have never dealt with a shop as 'customer satisfaction' oriented as yours. You should be very proud of your team. It's the best I've ever seen."

The Harry Walker Agency is the World’s Leading Speakers’ Agency. For 67 years we have proudly represented the most prominent speakers, such as
President Bill Clinton, Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Vice President Dick Cheney, Vice President Al Gore, Secretary-General Kofi Annan, President Felipe Calderon, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dr. Henry Kissinger, Steve Forbes, Her Majesty Queen Noor, Barbara Walters, Larry Summers, Bono and many others. We have long-standing and successful relationships with hundreds of speakers worldwide, including World Leaders, Nobel Laureates, Journalists, Bestselling Authors, Global Business Leaders, Economists and Entertainers.
We still maintain the same enduring values and timeless principles that have been our focus since Harry Walker founded this Agency in 1946: taking care of the speaker, taking care of the meeting planner, and taking care of each other, one successful event at a time. Each morning as we open our office we rededicate ourselves to the mission that has sustained us as the world's foremost speakers' agency for the last 67 years--the pursuit of excellence. We strive for excellence in our relationships with our speakers as well as with meeting planners.
Our HWA Agents are the most experienced in the industry, many of whom have been with us for over 25 years. We know the speakers and their presentations in detail, and put that knowledge to use for you on every event on which we collaborate.
In addition, our Event Management team ensures worry-free engagements. Every step of the way, our team is available to you 24/7, making certain speakers are fully briefed on your group, the audience, where they need to be, and when they need to be there.
Our team is YOUR team. We bring the highest level of professionalism to every event and pride ourselves on creating a true partnership with you – the host organization – from speaker selection until the final applause.
