Themes for Your Meeting or Conference

We get asked all the time for ideas on conference themes. Whether an event professional is just starting the planning process of a new event, or they’re a 20-year veteran, coming up with a theme that will inspire your audience and motivate attendance is crucial to your event success. Below, we’ve broken down some of our favorite conference themes and taglines, and even offered a few keynote speaker suggestions that can tie it all together and ensure that your next event is a big hit!

Innovation/Future Trends

  • Breakthrough Performance
  • Challenge. Opportunity.
  • Explore the Possibilities
  • Future Vision
  • Discover the Difference
  • Facing the Future
  • Innovate, Integrate, Motivate

Innovation keynote speakers can inspire creativity, as well as discuss how upcoming digital trends can impact the future of work. While many times, they are content-heavy and research-driven, they also inspire audiences to think bigger and embrace the changing technologies of today.Keynote SuggestionsErik WahlJosh LinknerSeth MattisonDaniel SiebergMike WalshMick EbelingLiz WisemanShivvy Jervis


  • Accelerating Growth!
  • Obstacles are Opportunities
  • All In!
  • Elevate

Sales motivational speakers can inspire even the most seasoned sales rep. Offering customized keynotes to your company/audience, sales experts have an objective of delivering a strong message and motivating your team to “close the deal”. Keynote Suggestions: Matt DixonSimon BaileyMolly FletcherAlden MillsSeth GodinNathan JamailDavid Meerman Scott

Customer Service/Experience

Everyone knows that “the customer is always right” but how can you provide the right training that teaches that to your company. Better yet, how can you make your employers understand that THEY are also a customer. Employee engagement is just as important as the customer experience, and many of our customer service keynote speakers are professionals at explaining just that. Keynote SuggestionsLouie GravanceConnie PodestaLior ArussyBlake MorganMicah SolomonMike AbrashoffChip Bell

Be Your Best. Do Your Best. Overcome any Obstacle. Peak performance keynote speakers are storytellers. Many have inspiring tales of true life experiences that led them to discover key lessons to achieving the impossible. They provide high-performance training tools, tips, and advice, encouraging your audience to deliver extraordinary results. Whether they are former athletes, coaches, CEOs or military leaders, each one offers a unique perspective and story that empowers and inspires audiences around the world to be their best. Keynote SuggestionsBen NemtinBen HinesCarey LohrenzColin O’BradyJim DavidsonVernice ArmourJocko WillinkRonan Tynan
