Q: Are keynote speakers willing to perform at a virtual event? A: Yes they are!

This year witnessed a major shift in the event industry with birth of virtual or hybrid events.

So it was only natural that motivational speakers who are one of the major assets of the events industry followed trend and adapted to the new world in events quickly.

It won’t be long until we are back enjoying the experience of meeting in person as there are certain things you just can’t do online, like looking each other in the eye or picking up on nonverbal communication. We have always come together to plan, debate laugh and enjoy each other’s company. But until then remember to take advantage of the virtual technology we all have available to us, and keep your team inspired by booking a motivational speaker.

Stay safe and keep smiling.
