<ul><li>Establish the date, location and budget of your event. These
factors will play an important role in determining the pool of keynote
speakers available to you. Your date, for example, will affect which
keynote speakers are available, whereas your budget will limit whom you
can and can’t afford to hire. In order to save on the cost of the keynote
speaker’s travel, you may want to consider the distance between where he
or she resides and where your event will take place.</li><br><br>
<li>Determine the type of presentation you want and the time of day when
it will take place. Some speakers are skilled at delivering workshops,
while others excel at providing keynotes. After-dinner speakers should
incorporate humor into their talks, where morning speakers should be
energizing.</li><br><br>
<li>Clarify why you want to hire a keynote speaker. Some common reasons
include the desire to:
<ul><li>Educate</li>
<li>Motivate</li>
<li>Shift behavior</li>
<li>Initiate a change effort</li>
<li>Raise funds</li>
<li>Promote a cause or organization </li>
<li>Entertain</li></ul><br>
<li>Consider which keynote speakers have been successful in the past with
your group or a group similar to yours.</li><br><br>

great way to narrow down your search. BigSpeak can locate any keynote
speaker for you whether you see them on our roster or not.</li><br><br>
<li>Establish who the core decision makers are regarding a keynote
speaker and tap into their vision.</li><br><br>

speaker who will appeal to a general audience or one who will interest a
specific demographic group (e.g., an all-women’s group)?</li><br><br>
