Do your research like a real DMC UK
Sourcing the very best motivational speakers in the world starts with properly researching your audience, the type of event you’re hosting, and the options available to you. Think about the type of speaker that will best resonate with your audience and whether you need a more light-hearted or serious speaker. Ultimately, your choice this may depend on the type of event you’re hosting, such as a charity fundraiser conference and which speakers are available at the time.
A corporate event organiser will have exceptional connections
To ensure smooth sailing, work with a renowned DMC UK like Uptown Events. Our extensive contact list for motivational speakers is enviable and this allows our team to cherry pick the best up-and-coming and well-established speakers available from the UK and around the world. But like everything in life, planning your event and considering speakers ahead of time will save you a lot of headaches in the long run. So, feel free to contact us now.
Briefing calls are advised
It’s important to remember that you are hiring a motivational speaker, so don’t hire blindly unless you have the utmost confidence in your choice. For our team, we’ll always get to know newcomers or those with a little less experience to be on the safe side. Obviously, the most well-known speakers won’t require quite as much scrutiny before you both sign on the dotted line.
The layout of the room is crucial to success
So, you’ve invested in a speaker but you’ve not thought about your event’s layout. As corporate event organisers, we know full well how important it is to get this right. For example, you’ll need to make sure you’ve supplied the technology your speaker needs to be heard and seen – think audio visual systems and any additional technology requirements. However, one of the cardinal sins for speaker arrangement is having a number of your guests facing away from the speaker. This can happen with round tables and in other situations, so think about how you can remedy this or speak with your DMC UK.
Don’t cut down on costs through your speaker choice
Our final DMC UK secret is one we see all too often. After all, spending lavishly on exquisite food, drinks, and décor can come at a price for some organisers which is generally the speaker. In our opinion, you should always put as much care and capital into your speaker as you do in other areas of your event. Why? Well, like we said at the start of this article, a speaker can really make or break your event and we want yours to be a huge success.
