Is your business planning to have a sales meeting? Are you looking for a reputable speaker who can talk knowledgably about your brand and what you have to offer? While finding a Boston Sales Speaker does not have to be difficult, there are certain things to consider. Tips to help you select a quality sales speaker for your next sales meeting are highlighted here.
Consider the Message You want to Convey
While you can find a generally great engaging speaker, the fact is it will be much more beneficial if you find someone that has knowledge of your industry and your business. The ideal person would be someone who will be able to reinforce the overall goals that you have for the year or the next quarter.
Schedule Speakers Strategically
If you have a presentation that is completely “nuts and bolts” oriented, then you should schedule the guest speaker at the beginning of the second day of the meeting. If it is big-picture or philosophical content, then you should consider scheduling the speech during one of the dinners during the meeting. When you schedule the speaker accordingly, they will have better results in reaching the audience with the message that you want conveyed.
Book Professional Speakers in Advance
If you attempt to book a professional speaker just a few weeks before your scheduled event, chances are they will increase the price. If you want to get a budget-friendly rate, you should book the speaker that you want to use several weeks, or even months in advance.
Ask Your Customers to Speak
The feedback that you receive from your customers will almost always be beneficial, and when they are present at a sales meeting it will help to keep the “party animals” on your sales staff on their very best behavior. You should ask several clients, about two or three, to speak for approximately 15 minutes each. However, you should, in a tactful manner, ask to review what they are going to say ahead of time. This way you can be sure that they are not going to contradict what your message actually is.
Hiring a sales speaker is a great way to motivate and inform your sales staff. Using the tips here will help you properly plan and hire the best speaker for your business.
