When attendees think back on an event and the aspects which left a strong impression on them, the first things which will come to mind are:

  • the speaker
  • the venue
  • the entertainment.

A speaker is the focal point of an event, so you need to select it carefully. The best speakers will make the attendees think about your event days after it’s over, so it’s an opportunity for you to stand out among other events.

Some might say choosing a speaker is more art than science. Regardless of how it’s defined, here are some handy tips you can use next time you’re scouting for an event speaker.

Tips Which Help You Choose the Best Speakers for Events

1. Watch videos of their performance

Seeing a speaker perform is one of the best ways to assess their relevancy and fitness for your audience. A description can say one thing, and the performance can tell a different story than the one the speaker presents.

Watching a video will also help you avoid any surprises regarding their performance, as it will show you whether they can engage the public and keep their interest.

2. Ask if they have experience in your industry

The profile of your audience is significant when hiring a speaker. Why? Because it’s going to help you find one who can truly connect to the attendees.

For example, a speaker who has plenty of experience doing nonprofit events and none doing corporate ones might have a hard time establishing rapport with the participants. At the same time, it can be harder for them to adapt their presentation for an industry and an audience they don’t know that much about.

3. Look for those who can tailor their content 

The best speakers know that to connect with an audience, they need to be on the same level as them. That is why you will notice there are speakers out there who are willing to personalize their presentation for your specific event.

This is not only going to make them stand out, but it’s also going to contribute to the success of your event.

Now that you know what to look for in a speaker let’s see a couple of options you can hire.
