If you are hosting an event and looking to draw in crowds of people, a celebrity speaker is the right way to go about this. Not only will it get attention leading up to the event, it is also guaranteed to get your name out there. Whether you are looking to entertain or inform, a speaker that is well known in the public eye can suit all kinds of events from corporate dinners to charity balls and everything in between. Let’s find out everything you need to know about hiring a celebrity to speak at your function.
Think about your audience
When getting in touch with a celebrity speaker, it’s important that you choose someone that is right for your audience. You wouldn’t hire a comedian to speak at an event that is very serious and vice versa. We have a number of different celebrity speakers available, all different and perfect for a number of different gatherings. Think about the age range of your audience too and consider if they would actually know the celebrity that you might be interested in choosing.
The RSVP’s for the event you are arranging, are sure to come in thick and fast if you choose a celebrity speaker that peaks interest amongst your guest. Not only will the event itself be a hit, you can ensure it will be talked about for a long time which will get your business even more positive attention.
While there might be some celebrity speakers who are not as well known as others, it’s important to consider all your options because they might just surprise you with all the interesting stories they have to tell! Do your research on the different options out there and also consult the opinion of others.
Things to consider
If you are holding a charity event, choosing a celebrity that is well known for doing a lot for charity work or who can talk extensively about this subject is recommended.
If you need any more help with choosing a celebrity speaker for your event and are unsure what your options are, there are speakers bureaus that can help you decide. With a lot of experience in helping to put successful events together, they can arrange something that you and your guests are satisfied with.
Added benefits to include
A celebrity speaker is great but there are other things you can request from this person to make the event even more memorable and useful to guests. According to Speaker Bureau one thing that always goes down well is arranging meet and greets so that guests actually have the opportunity to speak to the celebrity in question. Many of the celebrity guests we have available have actually written books in the past, so an autograph signing session might also be something that is appealing.
If you have a bigger budget to spend on an event, why not include goodie bags with a copy of the celebrities book already inside? Having a polaroid camera at the event is also a nice touch and it will mean that guests can take photos with the celebrity and have it signed instantly.
The timing of the event
Although they are officially called “after dinner celebrity speakers”, that doesn’t necessarily mean they have to speak after you have eat a meal. The guest will basically speak whenever you want them to. Just ensure that you plan out the function completely before it starts and tell the speaker how things are going to go. A set schedule will increase the likelihood that everything goes as planned.
Perhaps you are arranging an event just for staff members of your company, the celebrity can speak at an event like this too. No dinner even has to be involved. Once you have confirmed a speaker, the rest is basically in your hands so that you can make the event exactly what you want it to be.
Now that you know a little more about celebrity speakers and what is involved, you are good to arrange all the details. With a number of well known guests on our books, we are guaranteed to be able to help you out. A speaker who is well known gives an event something special and can make it much more popular. You can ensure that things go exactly the way you want by choosing somebody who is right for the job.
