How to Find Speakers for Your Event
Having someone speak at your event can always be an interesting way to break up a day. Maybe you are looking to fill a gap in between a sales presentation and lunch or maybe you really do need someone who knows about quantum physics. The speaker could be there to provide background information on the trends in your sector to explain a complicated subject to your audience.
If You Already Know WhoIt's likely that you already know who you want. Maybe a famous psychologist or a celebrity chef, you'll probably need to contact their agent in order to hire them for an event. If you are struggling to find their agent then scour their website, send some emails and make some calls to the contact info listed.
You should know how long you want them to talk for, what you want them to talk about and the sort of audience they'll be speaking to. All these could factor into the price you will be paying to have them at your event.
If You Already Know WhatIf you have a topic you want speaking about then you should contact a company or body who are know for expertise in that field. So if you want someone to speak on the current trends in tiling contact a well known tile company such as Fired Earth. Contact the company's PR department as you might find that someone from the company will be happy to speak at your event for a short amount of time for free in exchange for the publicity.,
If you contact a board such as the Royal Horticultural Society for a speaker on gardening then they will be more than happy to point you in the direction of a speaker.
