to Pick the Right Presenter
| You've surfed, you've
read, you've consulted with colleagues. So how do you
pick the right keynote public speaker for your event?
How do you decide which presenter is the perfect expression
of your key theme and message? And will he/she exceed
your audience’s expectations? Evaluate the following
four critical elements to a successful event: Audience,
Message, Delivery, and Outcomes.
| The audience
is the most important element of any event. They
are not only the recipients of the message, but
are your judge and jury. They are looking to you
to “raise the bar” every year while keeping your
budget in line. What are you doing differently
that will greatly impact your audience at this
In our experience, most audiences will respond
Remember, the key question to ask is, “How will
this presenter be a hit with my audience?”
- Fresh, meaningful content
- High-energy talent
- Creative delivery
- An experience that moves them "outside
| Will the speaker’s
message appeal to your audience? To create the greatest
likelihood of a smash hit, make sure the presenter’s
message is versatile enough to not only reinforce your
own unique objectives or themes, but that it appeals
to every individual, no matter their stage of life,
both professionally and personally.
Ask the presenter to demonstrate how his/her message
integrates with your unique objectives or themes.
This is an important element that cannot be overlooked.
| A strong message
with poor or even average delivery can spell disaster.
Look for qualities like charisma, originality, audience
participation, professionalism, and passion. If your
goal is to simply keep your audience awake, there are
hundreds of humorous keynote speakers. But if you want
to make a major impact and create a “WOW!” response,
you need to ask some hard questions. To get a true sense
of the presenter’s style ask for a video sample. You
can also ask the following questions:
- What does [presenter] do to keep our audience
engaged during the presentation?
- Why would I want to sit and listen to [presenter]
for 60 minutes?
- How is [presenter]’s presentation style
different from other presenters out there?
- How many times does [presenter] get hired
back by past clients? May I have some references?
| Results are
often difficult to measure with a keynote presentation.
When your audience leaves the room, what do you
want them to say, feel or do? What results are
important to you? Use this list as a guideline:
Rate each audience outcome below (from 1 to 10
