Welcome to Alliance for Success

Alliance for Success Speaker Management founder, Kate Holgate, has worked with meeting planners and speakers for more than a decade. She has aligned herself with a team of passionate, skilled, like-minded people all of whom share one goal: to provide meeting planners, speakers, and authors with the tools and services they need to be successful.  

So, from the "mother ship" (Kate's office) in beautiful Sarasota, Florida and from AFS team members in the USA and Canada, we look forward to helping you make things happen!

AUTHORS
We Bring Your Story to Life

We work with speakers who need to write a book (you know you do!), are writing a book, or just finished a book. From ghostwriting to marketing. 

Alliance:

Kate Holgate has been one of the most loyal volunteers we've ever had at Project Transition USA. Her passion for supporting transitioning military veterans is real, and the support she provides speakers and trainers is both invaluable and amazing. Kate recently helped us organize our first event for the Sarasota Veteran Community, and now I am spoiled FOREVER. If you have the opportunity to work with her, jump on it!l

Nancy Laine, Founder, Project Transition USA

Kate understands speakers and the speaking business. She is well connected and knowledgeable. Her thoroughness in helping me put together my (tedious) CSP application was invaluable, as was her great sense of humor - which was needed at times! I have no hesitation recommending Kate to any speaker who needs management services.

Kate's passion and creativity extend to many facets of our industry. Whether you are a speaker seeking your Certified Speaking Professional certification, or representation with a full line of services, those who choose to work with Kate get much more than they could ever pay for. They receive a lifelong journey with a lady whose life that is dedicated to making this world a better place.

After working with Kate Holgate to find a speaker for an event, I can honestly say that for future events, Kate will be the first person I call.    She is an absolute joy to work with and will go out of her way to make sure that the speakers she represents are the exact fit for your event.  She is responsive, positive, and resourceful and will do everything she can to find the right speaker for you.  A real gem!
