Keynote Speaking

Generally, when people say they want a Keynote Speaker what they mean is we need to hire someone who can talk to our audience for about 45 minutes and they will probably cost a lot of money.
The term Keynote Speaker is one of the most misunderstood in the meetings industry. Many people confuse the term Keynote Speaker with motivational speaker, inspirational speaker, plenary speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, closing speaker, business speaker, juggler, ventriloquist, illusionist, and any former Miss North Dakota or Miss Rhode Island.
Any of the above speakers could actually be a keynote speaker, but most professional speakers are not actual Keynote Speakers and most Keynote Speakers can’t or don’t do all the rest..
