  • To share a personal, impactful, and meaningful story;
  • To elevate their presence at work;
  • To establish credibility in their field;
  • To demonstrate subject matter expertise in hopes of finding a job;
  • To continue contributing after retirement;
  • To share their love of a particular topic;
  • To meet new people;
  • To help other people deal with specific issues; and

Did you realize that public speaking offers so many benefits? In addition, public speaking supports:

  • writing and editing.

Public speaking is a great topic for a podcast about employment, leadership, marketing, and so many other areas of focus. To book us for your podcast, e-mail tricia@ineedaspeaker.com.

Eco-friendly events are trending

Eco-friendly events are trending 2560 1707 I Need A Speaker

As public health restrictions loosen, hybrid and in-person events are seeing a comeback. One thing you can expect – as an event planner or as a speaker – is a nod to the environment.

As you plan your event or talk, ask yourself what can be done to incorporate sustainable measures while still creating a safe environment.

What sustainability measures do you use as a speaker or event planner?

Make sure time is on your side

Make sure time is on your side 2560 1930 I Need A Speaker

Event planners juggle many responsibilities. They want to be sure that everything works well for the events they plan.

One crucial element in planning is time. Speakers are typically booked for a set time frame. In the planning stages, event planners will review the length of time allocated for each speaker.

Speakers who complete their presentations with time to spare may cause a problem, because they will affect the schedule for the remainder of the event. The same is true when they speak too long.

When practicing, speakers need to time themselves. It’s important to respect the time frame they have been given and do their part to help make the event run smoothly.
