When it comes to organizing a corporate event, finding the right speaker can be a difficult task. After all, you cannot just randomly pick somebody and hope for the best. It has to be a professional who knows how to keep an audience interested and entertained, and how to get a message across.
So how do you go about doing that? What rules do you need to follow to make sure you find the right speaker for your corporate event? Well, one good starting point is keeping these pointers in mind:
1. Look for a speaker who knows the importance of social media
It is no secret that everybody from your average Joe to your large company uses social media nowadays, both for personal and business reasons. A quality corporate speaker knows this and spends a great deal of time building up their social media presence.
So if you are considering whether or not to hire somebody, take the time to look at their social media activity. Look at how often they post and whom they engage with. If everything is in order, it means the speaker in question will know how to promote your corporate event for you.
For instance, Steve Anderson knows how important social media and technology is in this day and age. That is why he builds his speeches around the idea of business development through the use of technology.
2. Be sure to review their previous work
It goes without saying that you cannot possibly expect to hire a great speaker if you do not take the time to see what their track record is. When it comes to organizing a successful corporate event, you need the best, so it is recommended to ask the speakers you have in mind for some samples of previous speeches they’ve done.
There might even be videos which you can watch, so you will have an easier time reviewing their work. Be sure also to ask for some PowerPoint presentations to see how well they are done.
3. See how much they are interested in your corporate event
A quality corporate speaker will always take the time to get to know you and your audience. They will ask questions about what you expect from the event and about the demographic associated with your audience. This, in turn, will give them the opportunity to adjust their skills and presentations so that they can adapt and meet your needs.
In this case, a comedian/speaker like Jeff Caldwell would be a good fit for you. He knows how to be funny to engage the audience. At the same time, he also understands how important it is to tailor each and every speech or joke in such a way that it resonates with every different type of audiences he deals with.
