How To Choose The Ideal After Dinner Speaker For Your Event

When organising an event, it can be difficult to know what kind of speaker you should hire for the occasion. Do you opt for after dinner, keynote or motivational? If it’s a corporate event, should you hire a speaker specialising in finance, leadership, teamwork, management or entrepreneurship? The choices are virtually endless.

The Champions Speakers agency is eager to help you choose right first time, so we have compiled a list of options for you to check out and match to your own event, in order to help you find the ideal speaker.

Awards Ceremonies

A host or compere, such as Derek Redmond, is crucial to entertain the crowd and keep the event on the right track. You could also hire a number of speakers to award the prizes – who you choose is wholly dependent on the theme of the awards.

Charity & Sporting Dinners

As above, a host or compere is vital to keep the evening going smoothly, ensuring the guests are entertained, and to conduct the charity fundraisers. Inspirational speakers with seminal stories to tell, such as Richard Parks, are a good choice to share their stories at the event.

Networking Events & Clubs

Business, entrepreneurial and motivational speakers, such as Pete Cohen, are important to give attendees advice on how best to run their company, invest their money, and generally make wise business decisions.

Training & Team Building Days

As above, speakers who specialise in business, such as Gareth Davis, should be considered to help inspire your workforce and get everyone singing from the same hymn sheet. We also have an interesting post when it comes to choosing the perfect after dinner speaker, which you can find here: “What makes a great after dinner speaker”.
