Time to Ditch Your Keynote? 10 Tips to Hire Amazing Speakers [Webinar]

Speakers can define the outcome of your event. Join us in this featured webinar to learn all about hiring amazing speakers that will make your event a success.

I’ve written extensively about the delicate and intricate relationship between event planners and speakers. Some speakers just don’t get how events work, some planners do not empower their speakers.

I’ve asked our friends at Lanyon to support this great topic for our next webinar to finally give a thorough analysis of the matter. Some of the questions you will get answers to are:

  • Is hiring speakers in 2016 the same as it used to be? (hint: no)
  • How do I get speakers to share my event objectives? (hint: easier than you think)
  • What should I expect my speakers to contribute to the event? (hint: more than you think)
  • How can I make sure they are rewarded for their effort? (hint: it doesn’t involve fat checks)
  • How can I tell if my keynote is a wasted investment? (hint: very simple to tell)

It will be a somehow controversial but liberating webinar. I feel privileged to talk about this subject as both a professional keynote and as someone that curates content for events, therefore hires speakers (and writers for this blog – a very similar process). I’ve learned a few tricks from both sides that make it work.

I am not a fan of pleasing others, I am a fan of giving you tips that can make an immediate difference for your event. This is such a crucial part of the event planning process that just a simple mistake can cost you thousands. It is not my interest to defend anyone involved in this special relationship, it is my objective to give you tactics to make it work.

I am very excited for this webinar and I hope you can join me to ask me questions and challenge what I have to say. This is the time to get it right.
