Booking a Professional Speaker has never been easier…
At More Profit Less Time, we’ve got what it takes to not only address your target audience, but to deliver the information you want them to have. We give you the results you want from your speaker. It’s something we excel at. So, before you choose the speaker who’s right for you, we’ve provided some tips you may want to think about.
Make your professional speaker work for your business – on stage and off.
Before you choose the professional speaker that is best for your business, here are a couple of questions you may want to consider first.
- How will this speech benefit my business?
- What do I want people to do as a result of listening to the speech?
Without direct results from the speech your costly investment may simply turn into a non-productive happy hour. Liaising with us about your intended results is just the beginning when you’re planning on a great response and return on your investment.
Here is just a small list of the types of speaker you may wish to consider – we are expert professionals in each of these arenas:
When selecting your speaker, think on these guidelines.
Do they know your audience?
What are the problems your audience wants solved? What makes them tick? Who do they go to for answers? Can you provide solutions that no-one else can? What will make them come back for more? Can you make them feel valued and important?
These are just some of the questions and feelings your keynote speaker will need to address directly and indirectly – it’s no longer profitable, logical or acceptable to gather a group of like-minded (or aligned business) people and expect them to be content with whiling away their time for no result. They must benefit from the experience and so must your business.
If you’re having difficulty isolating the results you want from your sessions, then speak with our experienced and professional team. Tangible results are our specialty.
How will you get the most out of your budget?
Our experts can help your planning so that it’s your business that benefits from the expenses outlaid for an event. And while it’s tempting to give your delegates a lavish spread for refreshments, studies have found this to be a flawed embellishment. Long after the event, you want it to be remembered for the meaningful and beneficial insights and information it delivered rather than just a good feed. After all it’s the inspiration delegates receive that will drive them back to your business.
What’s the best way to run an event?
There is nothing worse than having a whole bunch of people running around disoriented and confused, simply because they failed to take a little time at the beginning of the event to get themselves organised. It only takes a few moments and the difference is enormous. So before you begin your event tick these pointers:
- Brief your speaker thoroughly – they should know what to expect and what is expected of them.
- Provide clear, concise and direct travel instructions.
- Have an equally clear layout of the room ready for the speaker (ideally email it to them before they arrive).
- Introduce the speaker to the MC and have them discuss introductions.
- The MC should read verbatim the introduction written for him by the speaker.
- Supply notes on the layout of break-out rooms, conveniences, parking and so on.
Following these few simple guidelines will help your event run smoothly and easily, adding to the notion of your professionalism and dedication to service.
What are the most productive ways of follow-up?
You’ve had a wonderful day. The delegates are enthusiastic about your business. The sales that have resulted are marvelous. The speaker was funny, relevant and inspiring. The refreshments were great. The feedback has been amazing and then…
It’s so often the way – you have hosted an exceptional and successful event and then it all fades. The enthusiasm palls, the sales slacken off and the contacts disappear. Why? Lack of follow up will do that. A few simple emails, feed-back forms, evaluation sheets, contacts and you can keep the momentum going forever. It’s a simple tip that so many businesses ignore. Why miss out on lucrative returns because of a small oversight such as this?
