Engage. Entertain. Educate. Encourage.
No matter your motive for choosing a keynote speaker, it’s imperative you find the right fit for your particular conference or meeting – though it can prove challenging at times. While Speakers Bureaus represent very prominent keynote speakers such as celebrities, global business leaders and athletes, there are other ways to connect with and book the perfect keynote speaker for your event. Here are some ideas to help jump start your search:
Trade Shows & Conferences – industry networking opportunities give conference planners the ability to hear a keynote speaker in action.
Speakers Associations such as the National Speakers Association – associations such as these act as a search engine to help you get the keynote speaker you want.
LinkedIn – from individual pages to LinkedIn Groups, LinkedIn is crawling with eager professionals.
TED Talks – pop in the ear buds and sit a while. TED Talks have learners all over the world gathering to learn more about the world around them.
Whether the ideal keynote speaker comes from one of these sources or one of your own, remember that a keynote has the ability to set the tone for the entire conference and should be chosen wisely. We look forward to all of the talented keynotes who walk through the WinMock doors.
