You or your company planning a serious professional even, and now, you need to somehow increase the prestige of this event. You can prepare the most expensive decorations, meals, gifts, and other things, but you should understand that certain people will raise the prestige of your event much better than anything else. It is wiser to spend a couple of thousands of dollars to hire a professional public speaker knowledgable on the topic of your event than waste dozens of thousands of dollars on decorations and other unrelated stuff. In this blog post, I will tell you about the main qualities that you should look for while searching for an expert public speaker.
An Expert Public Speaker is Always Confident
A lot of event managers make the mistake of hiring amateur public speakers who lack confidence when it comes to public speaking. Dale Carnegie once said that public speaking is one of the scariest things a person can face in -t his life. For a person without any public speaking experience, speaking in public might look very scary. No doubt, this person will fail at the beginning of his speaking career.
A professional public speaker has a lot of self-confidence. He is confident because years of speaking in public taught him to control his emotions. Secondly, and experienced public speaker has a lot of knowledge on the topic of his coming speech, and consequently, this also makes him confident. If I was to make a speech on the topic of biochemistry, I would be worried because I am not competent in this field. Hence, a professional public speaker is confident because he is experienced in public speaking and competent in the topic of his speech.
Event managers and those people, who are responsible for hiring and inviting public speakers, should deal only with confident public speakers. An audience instinctively feels whether a speaker is confident or not. If a person is worried, his emotional state will directly affect the quality of his speech. Hence, the first rule of hiring public speakers – 'Look for confident public speakers!'
Hire Experienced and Knowledgable Public Speakers
After confidence and speaking skills, knowledge and experience are the two most important criteria that make a professional public speaker. There are public speakers with huge erudition who can equally successfully speak on a variety of different topics such as psychology, international politics, online business, marketing, sex, and etc. A great public speaker is not always an expert with narrow expertise and niche.
Before hiring a public speaker for your event, find out what topics your potential speaks can speak about. If a professional public speaker tells you that he is capable of speaking on a variety of various topics, you shouldn't doubt it. There are multipotentialites who are called as polymaths. These people have immense knowledge and insights on various sciences and topics. Such a person is a universal public speaker who can speak on almost any topic.
A Good Public Speaker is Always Engaging
No matter how much information and research data a public speaker is presenting, nobody will listen to his speech if he sounds boring. There are people who are more emotional, and there are those who are less emotional but more logical. A qualified public speaker knows how to engage all types of individuals.
While hiring a public speaker for your event, you should look for a person whose speeches are engaging. These experts know how to intrigue their public. Sometimes, they use controversy in their speeches to ignite the emotions of their public.
These are some of the most important qualities a professional public speaker must possess. If you exclude even one of these criteria, a public speaker won't be a professional speaker anymore. Pay attention to these characteristics to successfully hire great speakers who will transform your event into a big sensation.
