So, welcome!

Keep these four points in mind when considering a motivational speaker for your event:

Define your event’s aim.

Don’t hire a motivational speaker just to fill the slot of the guest speaker. The starting place should always be the aim of your event and the goal of the keynote session. You will get speakers from different walks of life, with immense experience. Ask yourself if their expertise and experience match the aim of your event. If yes, then you have the green light to proceed.

Keep the flow of the event in mind.

The energy of the room will fluctuate at different points of the event. You need to understand this flow and look for speakers whose style matches the same. Most events have three keynote slots, one to kick off the event, the next one post-lunch, and the last one at the end of the day. Choose someone capable of outlining the big picture and setting the event’s tone, is energetic during the after-lunch session and reignites interest, and pulls together the crucial messages from the day at the last session.

Know the expectations of your audience.

Apart from the aim of the event and your budget, your audience should also be a key consideration in finalizing the motivational speaker. Figuring out the expectations and requirements of the audience may seem a tad overwhelming, but once you do that, the chances of your event being a success drastically increases.

Don’t compromise on what you want.

For a successful event, never compromise on what you want. Have clarity about what you are seeking from the motivational speaker, and ensure your requirements are met. Make a point of laying out your intentions upfront.
