DescriptionHosted by the Marketing & Communications Committee
In a world which has become increasingly digital, the analogue world of bringing people physically together still matters, arguably more than ever. Especially in B2B marketing, events are potent tools to engage with business clients, partners and indeed with internal stakeholders. So long as you do it right! Inviting speakers is never easy, and hiring professional speakers raises the stakes further. In this session, Andrew Vine, CEO of a global professional speaker bureau, will present and talk to members about the power of engaging professional speakers (and moderators) across various types of events, show how to avoid the pitfalls and to deliver good results. He will also provide his personal insights and observations into what makes a good speaker, and share with participants a process we can all adopt to minimize the risks inherent in hiring speakers.
