#ESBOutspoken | What Should I Consider When Booking a Keynote Speaker

Karen Viotti
Thursday, Aug 22, 2019

Welcome to #ESBOutspoken’s 15th episode! Today’s question is for #eventprofs.

“My boss just asked me to help search for a keynote speaker for our annual meeting. What information do I need to gather before reaching out to a speakers bureau?”

Some key things you should consider, besides the obvious Date & Time:

  1. Event Objective
  2. Your Budget
  3. Event Location
  4. Meeting Topic

The more specific you can be about your event, the better we can serve you when booking your keynote speaker.

We hope that you join us each week via Facebook Live as Angela and Richard Schelp answer the speaking industry's most intriguing questions.

To submit your own questions and have them answered on an upcoming episode, send us an email at angela@executivespeakers.com 

You can also download our eBook "So You Want a Keynote Speaker...Now What?" located on our homepage.
