Most meeting planners ask for a motivational speaker video before hiring a professional speaker.
Hiring a motivational speaker? Watch their Video
The most important tool to assess a keynote speaker for your event is hands- down their speaker demo video.
To evaluate a motivational speaker, you need to see them in action. Unless you can see them live, the best way to do that is through their video.
A demo video should show you a speakers style so you can assess whether they will be a good fit for your group. A great video should excite you and make you think; this is the kind of speaker our group needs to hear. This is the kind of speaker who will elevate our audience to the next level.
Unfortunately, many speakers video reels show fancy graphics, testimonials, and even media interviews with very little footage of the speaker in front of an audience. If you or your committee are assessing motivational speaker videos, insist they show at least a few minutes of them speaking in front of an audience. I have met many meeting planners who are disappointed because their video did not accurately represent the speaker they hired.
A great keynote is as much about speech content as it is the experience the speaker creates with your audience. What type of experience do you want to create, and will this speaker fit the bill? Do you want your audience to laugh together, feel inspired, hear a memorable, impactful story, hear from a celebrity, or hear specific industry content?
