What Should You Cover in a Keynote Speaker Invitation Email?

How should you invite a Keynote Speaker?

You’re planning an event or meeting and need to hire a keynote speaker. You could potentially arrange that with just a few clicks but if you haven’t worked with a professional keynote speaker before, communication skills training is key if you’re going to email them. Here’s what you need to include in your keynote speaker invitation email.

The most important information you need to mention upfront is what type of event you are planning. A national conference is going to have a different focus and resources than a Fortune 500 company’s annual sales meeting, among other types of events, and the keynote speaker has to prepare accordingly. Next, you need to get down to brass tacks with respect to the address and location, date and time for your event, and when the keynote speaker is expected to give their presentation. It’s crucial to include the amount of time allotted for the keynote speech or presentation. The topic or theme for the keynote speech also needs to be specified. Professional keynote motivational speakers have keynote and breakout topics that they specialize in which are often customized to the organizer’s needs, the theme of the event, and other criteria.

Financial arrangements should also be covered in your keynote speaker invitation. Every speaker has different policies when it comes to their honorarium and any additional compensation for other duties they may perform, as well as travel and accommodations. You can ask how much the speaker’s fee is and state your budget if you do not have a set amount in mind. You also need to state how travel expenses will be covered and if they need to submit receipts for reimbursement or use your organization’s travel booking services.

Lastly, the tone of the email needs to be enthusiastic while remaining formal and respectful. Show that you are familiar with the speaker’s work, and include a date they should respond by.

Do You Need a Millennial Speaker or a Communication Skills Speaker?

When looking for a Millennial Keynote speaker, especially if you have a Millennial audience in mind, you need to ask yourself what you’re really looking to get out of hiring a speaker. Is the problem you’re currently facing with your employees about a lack of willingness to understand each other’s generation, or is the problem about being unable to effectively communicate?

Many experts agree that Millennials are genuinely lacking in soft skills training, particularly communication skills training. While Millennials are facing a systemic issue with their rigorous education focusing more on technical skills than soft skills, being a poor communicator is something that honestly knows no generational limits. If the difficulties that arise from managing your team stem from older employees picking on the younger employees or vice versa, chances are that you need a speaker who specializes in Millennial and generational issues and helping the two generations bridge gaps (and informing them that  definitely exists.)

But you need a communication skills speaker if the workforce problems aren’t stemming from inability to understand the values, behaviors, and typical experience of co-workers and superiors in other demographics. Once again, ineffective communications aren’t limited to just one age group. Some people are just poor communicators and need some extra training to get better at talking and listening to people. Then the internet has made the world more interconnected as a whole and now you no longer need to rely on one location to find talent. You can do anything from finding a date to getting a pizza at your door in minutes! But one downside of our Internet-driven modern world is that missing out on those little interactions we used to have on a daily basis for the most mundane things have more or less caused everyone’s communication skills to slowly deteriorate.

A Millennial speaker can help your employees better understand each other while a communication skills speaker helps hone everyone’s communication skills regardless of when they were born.

Safety Speaker Talks About Communication Skills

Workplace safety is of utmost importance when you’re dealing with dangerous chemicals in labs or raw materials likely to hurt people on construction sites. There’s federal and state regulations to comply with along with additional safety protocols set by management. But safety isn’t just about adhering to laws and making sure that your employees are paying attention when operating heavy machinery. It’s about creating a culture of workplace safety and ensuring that people don’t feel like they’re at risk for harassment and micro aggressions.
It’s also about keeping workplace hazards at a minimum that aren’t as highly visible as machinery and chemicals: for instance, how are you mitigating employee stress?

Poor communication skills training is one of those hazards that frequently gets overlooked just because it doesn’t wear a hard hat. People need to be able to communicate with each other more effectively in and out of the workplace, but especially in the digital age workplace communication skills often need improvement. It’s very easy to misread the tone of an email or memo and while it’s convenient that we can now do everything from buy property and broker mergers via text message, it also means a lot gets lost in the process. Conversations and intents can get misread when people interact in “meatspace”: what someone thinks is gentle ribbing is actually seriously violating someone’s personal boundaries and making them feel unsafe at work.

A safety speaker can get your team on the right track by deep-diving into the communications skills necessary for fostering a safety culture. People need to be able to understand and communicate the safety message no matter what size and type of workplace that they are sharing. What may seem like an antagonistic manager or a problem employee may simply be people who just have trouble communicating. To keep your workplace safe, fixing then preventing the damage caused by miscommunication is a must.

Millennial Speaker – Generational Keynote Speaker

Teaching Your Sales Team How to Sell Without the Feeling of Being Sold To

When it comes to training and motivating your sales team, those darn Millennials are at it again. There’s sales methods that older than dirt which entail the finer nuances of observation and communication, many of which are still widely employed today, but the times are changing. In fact, times are not just changing but changing at a faster pace than ever before.

Because of this, training your sales team requires new techniques and strategies if you want to sell to Millennials.  After all, it’s Millennials who are shaping the way things are done now particularly for products and services in which they’re the chief audience. But it’s not just Millennials who are seeing and feeling the differences in salesmanship today: in a world’s becoming increasingly noisy with this “always-on” mentality, the feeling that you’re being sold to is detected a lot earlier than it once was. So much is out there trying to grab peoples’ attention and with the limited time and capacity comes viewing that distinct feeling of being sold to as something incredibly pernicious.

Think about it: there’s nothing worse than going about your business on social media and suddenly you see this promoted post. Or you’re watching a video and your experience keeps being interrupted by ads. Those ads blatantly exist to sell to you. It just feels even more obnoxious when you’re in the room with someone and you know that all they see is a walking dollar sign. That’s the last thing you want as a salesperson!

Good, effective salesmanship training will teach your sales staff how to communicate with prospects, make keen observations, and drive their points home without the prospect even being aware that they’re being sold to. In our highly scattered world full of noise today, learning how to rise above that static and be m
