Hiring Keynote Speakers: Vetting the Unknown

When tasked with hiring keynote speakers for your next corporate event, leadership summit or business conference, at times the pool of available keynote speakers for hire can seem like a vast black hole that’s impossible to vet. Even after booking a keynote speaker, some event planners are left wondering was there someone else out there who would’ve been able to leave a more meaningful impact on your audience?

Here’s the good news: you don’t have to set out on this journey alone! At Celebrity Speakers Bureau, our team of experienced speaker booking agents do the research work for you. We spend each and every day scouring the wire for new information on top keynote speakers, trends in the industry and the speaking fees associated with these powerful personalities.

Our start-to-finish event booking process was created with you, the organization, in mind. First we’ll take the time to learn everything about your special event or corporate conference. Of course we’ll need to know dates, times, the run of show for the hired keynote speaker and your budget for talent. Most importantly however is finding out what makes your organization tick and what goals you have set for this event.

Our team of experienced celebrity booking agents will then create a list of motivational keynote speakers in your budget range whose message will truly hit home with those in attendance. We will continue to vet speakers on your behalf until your organization has settled on the perfect event speaker. From there, we will execute a contract with the talent and begin working through the logistics of getting your keynote speaker to the event and back.

Once the travel is locked in, a great way to make sure both your team and the keynote speaker are on the same page is to host a conference call to answer any lingering questions that may still be unanswered. This is something that we will facilitate and leaves both parties excited and confident about the event. On event day, our agents make themselves available to you at any time to ensure a successful event and help address any changes that may arise in prior scheduling/planning.

Our ultimate goal is not only hiring keynote speakers that leave a lasting impact on your audience, but also to alleviate stress throughout the booking process. We take care of the keynote speaker needs so you can focus on the other event details that go along with putting on a memorable event.

We’re here to help! If you’re interested in hiring keynote speakers for your upcoming event, contact us today via email with event details at booking@celebrityspeakersbureau.com or call us at (212)410-2853.
