WSSBE-PRINT-063-1000x666

Having the right speaker for your conference is essential for your program of events – they have the most impact on your delegates so choosing the right speaker who can communicate your message or theme of your conference is crucial. How do you choose one? We’ve put together a list of three key essentials when deciding on a speaker.

Purpose of your event

Without a clear understanding of the purpose of the event, you won’t be able to choose a suitable speaker. The purposes of the event will be the basis of your research of finding the right speaker and their presentation.

Type of speaker

Understanding the type of speaker, you want for your conference or event will help you narrow down your search. To educate your delegates, you would search for an industry expert or professional. Want to leave your delegates feeling inspired, you would choose a motivational speaker. See this infographic from SpeakerHub for more information on different types of speakers.

Research, research, research

Once you’ve outlined your brief and potential speakers… do your research! Watch their show reel and past presentations. Find out what other people are saying about them. Doing your research will avoid any potential disappointment on their delivery at the event.
