Keynote Speaker authority comes down to the knowledge of a speaker. Many speakers are great speakers. They can share a topic in a very exciting, engaging and inspiring way, but do they know that topic enough to work with you on it? Because many can present the information to a large audience, but can’t help you 1 on 1.
Some of the greatest performers from actors to musicians can blow an audience away, but they may not know how to teach or explain their craft. Be sure that when you look to invest in the help of an expert or authority, that you are digging deeper than what you are hearing from the stage.
Make sure these speakers know their topics on stage and off before you choose to work with them. By vetting and doing the due diligence to make sure someone is not just a great speaker will save you time money and hassle in the long run.
