What is the difference between a keynote and motivational speaker?
A keynote speaker is the backbone of an event. Responsible for leading the proceedings to providing the expertise to a specific theme, they have the knowledge, confidence and engaging speaking style to draw attention to the topic of the occasion. Often, a recognisable celebrity or an independent expert in a certain field will be the keynote speaker for an event, using their status to increase their authority over a subject. It is common for a keynote speaker to be followed by the events guest speaker, who can explore their experience from within a related industry.
Differing from the keynote speaker, a motivational speaker aims to open the minds of the audience, encouraging them to address the improvements that can be made in their own professional and personal lives. Whilst a keynote speaker is an independent expert in a field or industry, motivational speakers rely on their own stories of trials and tribulations to inspire the audience – attending an event with a motivational speaker is commonly more personal and enlightening.
How do I choose a keynote speaker?
In order to choose the perfect keynote speaker, it is important to address the themes that your occasion revolves around, so you have a strong understanding of the event’s intention. From there, it is easier to choose the perfect keynote speaker dependant on their field of expertise and style of public speaking.
Similarly, by identifying the type of audience you have it is easier to choose a keynote speaker that will consistently engage them. The average keynote speaker talks for around 45 minutes, so it is beneficial for you to hire someone who can capture the audience’s attention for that long.
Reflective of keynote speakers quality and experience, how much they charge can vary drastically. One of the easiest ways to identify which speaker is perfect for you is to address your own personal budget, and disregard the speakers that don’t fall within that bracket. It is relatively simple to narrow down your options and find the perfect keynote speaker for your event, when you take into account the event’s topic, target audience and your personal budget.
