1 Costly Mistake Meeting Planners Should NEVER Make

Posted by on in Written Blog | Comments Off on 1 Costly Mistake Meeting Planners Should NEVER Make

Some mistakes are small.

Others have a much greater impact.

But there’s ONE costly mistake that you should always avoid.

Here’s the deal:

If you’re a meeting planner, you probably have some pressure from several directions: Attendees are expecting a great time, but your higher-ups are demanding that you stick to a tight budget.

Skimping on a speaker to save money is a bad move with dire consequences for your whole event.

Here are four negative outcomes of not hiring a speaker to open and close your event.

1. You won’t have an impactful session that people remember

Without the right speaker – or any speaker at all – you’re not giving the audience a guide.

An engaging speaker will captivate the audience right off the bat, ensuring that the event and the lessons learned there are ingrained in the minds of the attendees for a long time to come.

Here’s what you should look for in a speaker:

  • Fresh content that’s tailored to your audience.
  • A presentation that’s high-energy.
  • Inspiring the audience to take action.
