Why and how to book the services of a speaker?

speakersQuebec, Training, Motivation and Team Building - Formax - Why and how to book the services of a speaker?

Symposia, conferences, meetings, galas, conventions, launches... Corporate events are now part of the annual planning of many companies. Whether it is to gather your members or employees, to celebrate an event, to train them or to motivate them, whatever the occasion, you also want to impress your guests.

What better way to impress the gallery than with a program that is worth its weight in gold! Among your presentations or workshops held by your members, teammates or presidents, calling upon a speaker, hostor professional trainer remains the best option to increase the value of your event and the notoriety of your company.

Yes, but where to start?

The first questions to ask before booking a speakerare the following:

Where? Will the event take place in person or virtually? If in person, in which region? Do you already have a venue in mind? If virtual, via which platform and do you need someone to do the distribution for you?

When? Have you chosen a date (fixed or approximate)? How much time will be given to speaker?

Why? What kind of event is it? A congress, a gala, a launch? What is the purpose of the gathering? What is the context?

Who is your audience? Who is your audience? Who should the guest of honour address? How many participants are you expecting?

What is it about? What is the theme of the event? What is the topic you want to discuss? Do you already have an idea of who you would like to invite?

How much is it? Do you have an idea of your budget? How much would you be willing to pay for a major guest?

Do you have the answers to all these questions? All that's left to do is contact us to discuss them. We will then be able to make our recommendations, confirm the availability of our desired speakersand provide you with the necessary information to plan the whole thing!

    I organise lunchtime lectures lasting approximately 30-35 minutes from 12.30-13.15
    I do my own research but I must admit that 60-70 lectures/year sometimes ideas run out... that's why I joined you. I would like to know the approximate cost of a speakerand I know that it will fluctuate.
    thank you very much
