Corporate speakers are used by business owners and CEOs to speak about current industry trends, market expansion, new product lines, and changes in company management practices to increase sales. A request for speaker from an organization can range from a simple “I need a few ideas on how we can further our growth in the next quarter” to an “I would like to thank you for sharing your thoughts on our company’s future success.” If your corporation is looking for a speaker to provide corporate leadership training, there are many benefits to hiring a speaker from a successful company. Speakers from successful companies have proven to be very effective at inspiring action and producing results. Whether you need a speaker for a special event or a one-time address, corporate speakers can make a lasting positive impact on your employees and the overall productivity of your team.
For this year’s “request for speaker” series, I asked some of the top Ceo executives from throughout our company the question: “How do you personally prepare yourself for a leadership career?” The responses from some of the highest ranked Ceos were interesting and varied. Some said they did not prepare as much as others; some said they did a lot and others said very little. Some corporate speakers from successful companies have motivational qualities that are important to include when speaking to the Ceo; other Ceos said they did not have any pre-conceived thoughts as to what to talk about and were simply unprepared.
After considering the answers to the question of how to prepare for a keynote address, here are some ideas for you to consider when searching for corporate speakers to help you with your next corporate leadership training session: Have a list of bullet points or key phrases to talk about. Explain what they mean in the context of the event. Go over the speakers’ resumes and credentials with a fine-toothed comb. Ask for specific examples of speeches and presentations from corporate speakers who are not on your speaking list but whose services you are interested in using.
