How to Hire the Right Motivational Speaker

Hiring the right motivational speaker for your event is easily done, with our help of course! Here’s what we need from you to get the ball rolling: 

Stakeholder and audience information

One of the most important things you need to do when looking to hire a motivational speaker for your conference is to decide what you want your delegates to take away from the presentation.

  • Spend time talking to your key stakeholders to understand the important messages they want delivered. Push them to make time for this - after all, it’s their vision you need to deliver. It’s also worth finding out from the delegates what kind of speaker would appeal to them - an advanced conference survey is a useful tool to assist with this process.

    The more you can tell us about your audience and what motivates them, the better.
  • If you have engaged motivational speakers in thepast it’s always handy to have a list of names for us along with the feedback you received. This information will help us consider all aspects when searching for the perfect presenter or motivational speaker for your event.

Event logistics   

Let’s establish as much information as possible in relation to the logistics of the event.

- Date: It’s ideal to have this at the time of enquiry so we don’t send you options that may not be available, but we can work without it if you’re still in the planning stages.

- Start Time: Morning or afternoon is fine to get the ball rolling if you don’t have specifics.

- Presentation Length: Most common presentations run to 50 min plus 10 min Q & A for a keynote or 4 hours for master of ceremonies.

- Presentation type: Keynote, Workshop, Sales Training, Comedy Spot, Master of Ceremonies.

- Location: The territory is fine if you don’t have the exact venue confirmed yet.

- Audience: The audience size, as well as type of people in the room - i.e. All Staff, C-Suite, Management, clients etc.

Use your Keynote Entertainment consultant as much as possible. No question is too big or too small. The more information you can give us the better, and don’t be afraid to lean on us as much as possible so you can get on with the million other things you have to do for your event… after all, that’s what we’re here for!
