Mike Hourigan, Internationally Acclaimed Virtual Keynote Speaker
As an experienced virtual keynote speaker, I often have to explain the difference between a keynote speech and a motivational or inspirational speech.
These days there are all kinds of people who claim to be virtual motivational speakers, and they range from former athletes to disgraced accountants to “B-list” actors. They may be funny or serious, finger pointing or podium thumping, but they are frequently like cotton candy. They put on a feel-good show for a lot of money but soon after, no one remembers what they said.
Mike Hourigan, Virtual Keynote Speaker
It is the job of a virtual keynote speaker to be able to encapsulate, summarize, play-back and get to the heart of your meeting. A good keynote will propel a meeting, not hinder it. To do this, the virtual keynote speaker must spend hours in research and interviews of key industry people, to identify issues and to understand the audience. I want to get to know you.
As a Keynote Speaker my work doesn’t begin when I appear on the virtual stage for the first time, it starts weeks before the actual speech. As an experienced virtual keynote speaker, in the presentation of keynote material I may use humor, music, show video clips, bring in relevant graphs or welcome participation. No matter what tools we bring into the virtual keynote conversation, the tools enhance and drive the message and are chosen with great care.
As a virtual keynote speaker, I focus on the following areas of my expertise:
- Negotiation skills for organizations
- Change and Change Management
- Blended Workforce Issues
- Safety in the Workplace
- Team Building Skills
- Soft Skills
