How to Book an Insurance Speaker for Your Next Event
You desperately need an insurance speaker for you next sales meeting or event, but where do you even start? After all, there are hundreds, maybe thousands of professional keynote speakers who claim to specialize in insurance, so where does an event planner even begin?
- Get clear about what you want. Why do you need an insurance speaker in the first place? Is it to explain changing healthcare laws to your staff, update your team of adjusters on new policies, or motivate your sales team to surpass this quarter’s goals? Getting crystal clear about your goal for the speech and for the event itself will help you narrow down the number of speakers you approach.
- Do your research. Does the insurance speaker you’re interested in have the kind of professional experience that will ensure an informative, enlightening keynote speech?When you research a potential speaker, you should be able to tell where they’ve worked, which events and conferences they’ve been a part of, and what, if any, experience they have in the insurance industry.
- Take them for a test drive. A good insurance speaker will have videos posted online. If you’re not engaged and interested while watching them on video, your audience won’t be engaged and interested in person. Pass the videos around to colleagues and co-workers to get their take before contacting the speaker directly.
