GETTING THE BEST OUT OF… CONFERENCE SPEAKERS
by JLA

For the briefing, assemble all the relevant background facts and figures – together with a note of the key issues, vision and mood of the industry or host organisation. Outline the objectives of the event, and the speech itself. Agree the principal themes and duration, including Q&A, as well as technical requirements and wording in event literature. Finally, tell the guest speaker a little about the internal presentations – and

the audience’s reaction to previous speakers.

On the day itself, check the speaker’s onstage introduction and briefly recap on the issues facing the delegates. Agree opening questions where appropriate, and avoid making any changes to running times if at all possible. Where practical after the presentation, invite the speaker to meet high achievers and VIP guests, and hand out signed copies of their book if available. By prior arrangement, it may also be possible to schedule an interview for the in-house magazine.

In a challenging economic climate, organisations have a greater need than ever to motivate their people, tap into expert insight and communicate strategy with clarity. This section contains details, useful links and video clips of inspirational figures, proven leaders and recognised authorities on a host of topics.

We do not list every available speaker in this section. Like the annual Index, this site homes in on those with topical resonance, a record for reliability and positive feedback. If the speaker you have in mind is not included, he or she is very likely to be on our 6000-strong database. Please ask your JLA agent for details.
