Top Motivational Speaker related questions

You should consider the theme of your event and the type of audience you will have. Doing this can make sure that the content of the speaker’s speech, their field of expertise and their style of public speaking are relevant. Also, take a look at their experience in their previous speaking gigs. They should be able to engage with the audience throughout their speech and leave a powerful message.

You can book a motivational speaker a month or two before your event. It’s highly recommended that you put up a task closer to your preferred schedule because booking too far into the future can make it difficult for Tasker to commit. But it’s also equally important to make sure that there’s enough time for your Tasker to learn your company, your event’s theme, and prepare their speech for you.

It depends on your event and your audience. Sometimes, a motivational speaker can talk for 30 to 60 minutes, if the time permits. Other times, a speech can last 10 to 20 minutes, especially if the event is a short affair or if there’s a long line-up of activities to follow. It’s essential to know your audience and the nature of your event before deciding the length of the speech.

There are two ways to pay your motivational speaker. You can do it via cash or Airtasker Pay if you prefer cashless transactions. If you decide that you’re getting your Tasker for more than one event, decide if you will pay them after every speaking engagement or on a contractual basis.

What do motivational speaker services include?

Inspirational or motivational speakers deliver speeches that contain messages of hope and inspiration. This kind of event speaker constantly reflects on their own life to see what information would be helpful and relatable to their audience. Visual and audio cues can also aid their speeches, so be sure to get an audiovisual assistant to help create the perfect atmosphere for your event.

Personal development speakers

If the audience members are composed of people looking to improve their lives, letting a personal development speaker talk to them is a good idea. They can cover various topics, such as communication and speaking skills, relationships, work-life balance, increasing motivation and more. Because these people often have a specific message and purpose to their talks, they are best for people who want to learn and develop skills for dealing with a particular area in their lives.

Leadership speakers

Organising a live or virtual event for future thought leaders and high performing executives? Getting a motivational leadership speaker can inspire, encourage and equip your audience! Covering topics like overcoming adversity, personal responsibility, teamwork, and innovation, your motivational leadership speaker can help the audience develop customer-centric solutions that are tailor-fit to your organisation’s needs. To further hone them into becoming world-class leaders, you can also get someone to teach them public speaking, strategic thinking, and other essential leadership skills.

Youth speakers

If you work at a school, church or other groups catering to young people, hiring a youth motivational speaker can inspire and educate them to build their self-esteem and follow their goals. They usually have experience working with young people, and they know how to lead and guide them towards adulthood. Youth motivational speakers are often invited to graduation ceremonies, so fresh graduates can be motivated to stay on the right track.

Graduation is an important milestone in a young person’s life, so it’s crucial to get someone inspiring and engaging. Graduates also want to keep a tangible memory of this significant life event, so be sure to hire a professional photographer for the ceremony!

Community speakers

For those leading a community and who want to bring the individual members together for a common cause, getting a community motivational speaker is one way to achieve your goal. They can help create awareness about a specific issue within your community and guide your members to put their plans into effect. A top motivational speaker can also educate your members about the pressing issues in your community and help them build the confidence they need to make specific changes through positive actions. 

Besides booking a keynote speaker, you can also foster camaraderie among members by hosting a team-building activity while a cocktail caterer serves delicious food and drinks to complete the event.
