The perfect speaker briefing

Gallus Events

There is a direct correlation between how well a speaker is briefed and how good the conference will be. So how do you design the perfect speaker briefing? How are you briefing your speakers. I often talk about the 700 or so events I have organised. Over half of those have been conferences (or smaller content led events like seminars and workshops) but I don’t often talk about my role as a speaker. I’ve spoken at around fifty events.

GEVME

To run an event successfully, you need to prepare a good event program and an event speaker’s agenda—a schedule or protocol for speakers about what they will say and how they will act on the stage, etc. Before every event, it’s important to think over the agenda, determine the list of participants, and read the reports of all the speakers and other relevant materials. About an event schedule/agenda. Limit the number of event participants.

Contracting Conference Speakers

Gallus Events

By my rough estimation I’ve organised over 500 learning events. Those events have ranged from half day seminars to three day conferences. So perhaps, on average, let’s say half a dozen speakers at each event. That makes roughly 3000 speakers. Contracting conference speakers just wasn’t something I did. I know I am not alone I think it’s common that organisers don’t get round to formalising agreements with speakers.
