Below are some helpful tips that we hope will add value and assist you in making the right key note speaker choice.
When you begin searching for the best key note speakers, think about what you want on your attendees minds on their way home from the conference. You might want them energized to be better sales people. Perhaps there are teambuilding exercises they should implement. Or, you want them to gain useful knowledge, on things like social media, so attendees see the real value of your organization's membership.
These are the type of statements our team will help you develop. Understanding your organization’s goals allow you to recieve better recommendations — which ultimately makes your event more successful.
Key note speakers undoubtedly play a huge roll in the success of your event. Your attendees will in fact remember the motivational speaker and their inspiring story more than they'll recall the food, hotel, and delayed flight.
Ask yourself: What type of speaker will make a lasting impact?
Humorous Motivational Speakers. A humorous speech will provide a lot of mileage for a successful event. Of all the speakers, you have seen over the years, you probably recall the funnier ones the most. Put simply, they leave you feeling positive.
Content Expert Speakers. Are you trying to improve your knowledge of Social Media? Does your organization need a better grasp on the global marketplace? These kind of expert speakers are just the type of people to provide the nuts and bolts of a subject.
Celebrity Speakers. Frankly, does it get better than this? Your attendees will be talking about the celebrity speaker all the way home, when they return to the office, and at future dinner parties. After all, wouldn’t it be cool to sit in the movie theatre and say, “that actor spoke at my conference.”
Sports Stars. There’s the movies, there’s television … but it doesn't get more dramatic than sports heroes. Think about those amazing fourth-quarter comebacks, the homerun that won the game, the coach who called the winning play. Sports key note speakers can inspire the whole audience to rush back to the office and become winners.
While the key note speech is 'in the moment,' the impact of it should last beyond the conference. Whether the keynote speaker inspires, educates or entertains, you’re looking to create an advantage for your organization. Here's how:
Before the Event: Nothing builds more attendance and excitement for a conference or lecture series than the key note speaker. The right guest speaker will get everyone talking and promoting the event for you!
During the Event: The speaker should have your attendees on the edge of their seat (laughing, learning, creating). This helps put your organization in the moment, building unity and thinking towards tomorrow.
After the Event: For sales reps, the speaker can be the difference of more ROI this year. For your association, they can add membership. For educational institutions, the speaker can provide inspiring teaching moments. Clearly, the professional speaker adds value.
It can be overwhelming to a meeting planner to choose a speaker who will be “even better than last year.” While all the information in the world can be Googled, it’s a large task to sift through all the possibilities and make a decision that will impact your event. This is where a speakers bureau can guide you through the process and help you select the best key note speaker (with your needs and budget in mind).
