Having set up their own successful ventures, entrepreneurs are perfectly placed as event speakers. Backed by personal experiences and expertise in their fields, entrepreneurs strike the balance of insightful value and entertaining content.
The Benefits of Booking an Entrepreneur for the Audience
One of the primary focuses of any event is the audience, with organisers aiming to keep their cohort engaged and ensure their attendance was beneficial for each individual.
Read our list of reasons why entrepreneur speakers benefit every audience they interact with.
Entrepreneurs have some of the most enviable qualities of any speakers on the circuit, which they impart to the attendees of their speaking engagements.
Pioneering your own venture is risky businesses, something that entrepreneurs know all too well. Throughout their career journeys, entrepreneurs have continually been faced with the task of balancing risk and reward in decisions, much like businesses and individual leaders. At events, entrepreneurs discuss how they navigated difficult business decisions, and the risks they took that paid off.
An essential skill of any successful entrepreneur is their ability to self-motivate. Without a strong sense of self-motivation, no individual would overcome the adversities faced when starting a business to become an established entrepreneur. As masters of self-motivation, entrepreneur speakers advise their audiences on how to hone such skills in their personal and professional lives.
No matter your role within an organisation, from apprentice to business leader, every employee requires perseverance to accomplish feats in their position. Fortunately, entrepreneur speakers have an established level of perseverance they discuss with audiences which they have amassed throughout their journey developing their own ventures.
Entrepreneurs are recognised for bringing a product or service to the market that has not previously existed, making them highly innovative individuals by nature. Replicating such a quality, entrepreneurs share their insight into thinking outside the box and continually innovating for future success with your audience.
Unlike other speakers on the circuit, entrepreneurs have evidenced their capabilities through their career paths, which ensures your guests are getting bespoke, experienced advice from the experts. Able to offer anecdotes to your guests, Entrepreneur speakers have lived the advice they share and have made the mistakes so others don’t have to. Adding a personal touch to every talk, entrepreneurs act as role models to audience members through their first-hand experience of the topics they discuss.
Sometimes you need to see it to believe it, and an entrepreneur speaker provides the unique opportunity to witness the potential through their success.
Whilst there are a vast variety of inspirational speakers on hand to motivate your audience, entrepreneur speakers have the unique perspective of an inspirational figure from a corporate background. Equally unique is their ability to inspire audiences on both an individual and teamwide scale, ensuring maximum gain for guests of their talks.
Whether their story is one of rags to riches or a pivotal moment that inspired them to pursue a new path, entrepreneurs are passionate about their business and influence the same in their audiences.
Including moguls like Lord Alan Sugar and pioneering inventors such as Tim Berners-Lee, each entrepreneur has their own inspirational story to tell. Often achieving success solely through their efforts alone, entrepreneurs inspire audience members to chase their dreams and fulfil their ambitions in their business and personal lives.
Hugely passionate about their own businesses, entrepreneurs inspire audiences to feel the same about the corporations they work for and lead. Having pursued business ventures, entrepreneurs have the first-hand experience in building the teams to run them. If you’re looking to increase team cohesion and inspire a group, an entrepreneur has the impact to do just that, by utilising their previous experiences.
Diversity is at the forefront of every triumphant business, and at events, a speaker should reflect this. With entrepreneurs hailing from all walks of life, be it following in the family footsteps, or elevating themselves out of poverty, entrepreneur speakers truly are a versatile group. Every entrepreneur has a different story, and every event has a different audience, meaning you can match your speaker to your occasion when you book an entrepreneur.
The Benefits of Booking an Entrepreneur for the Organiser
When booking an entrepreneur the benefits go far beyond those of the audience and ensure several added bonuses to the organiser of the event too.
Check out our top reasons why entrepreneur speakers improve the occasion for the organisers below:
A high turnout is an essential aspect of any event, be it online or in-person without guests there is no occasion. When booking an entrepreneur speaker, you’re guaranteeing improved ticket sales by elevating your event with an invaluable extra for your audience. Whether they are booked as after dinner speaker or for an industry keynote talk, entrepreneurs thrive in every speaking format.
The famous faces of the corporate world, like Sir Richard Branson and Deborah Meaden, are all available to book for speaking engagements. These high-profile entrepreneurs, and many others in their field, guarantee an increased audience presence at any event they attend due to their recognisability alone. Guests love to gain insight from the most prestigious entrepreneurs in the world.
There’s no better way to increase attendance to any occasion than by inviting a guest speaker along to present, an entrepreneur speaker is no exception. Having a well-regarded, or internationally-renowned entrepreneur on the advert for your event will not only build the buzz during the lead-up but secure those all-important sales to ensure your audience is packed.
Removes the Pressure
Often when planning an event, organisers call on an internal figure, such as a CEO or department leader to conduct a talk and host proceedings. Whilst this seems like an easy choice, it usually results in more stress for the planner and speaker than is necessary.
When booking an entrepreneur speaker, you’re booking a professional. With experiences speaking at numerous industry events and to their own companies, entrepreneur speakers are perfectly placed to take the reins at your occasion.
Equally, a professional relieves the pressure for anyone connected to the business to have to present meaning they can then sit back and enjoy.
The sign of a successful event is if people continue to discuss its content in a positive light well into the future. One way in which an organiser can ensure this is by booking an entrepreneur speaker. Elevating the occasion with their witty anecdotes, personal insight and invaluable advice, guests won’t forget a speech from an entrepreneur in a hurry.
Similarly, with attendees buzzing with newfound motivation and inspiration from the chosen speaker, businesses will benefit from the passion ignited in their employees, leading to improved productivity and teamwork.
With an international reputation comes international travel, and entrepreneurs whose businesses operate across the globe are used to just that. Available to book for events across four corners of the globe, organisers can get the best in the businesses, without the added stress of handling an infrequent traveller.
Not only are they used to handling business outside of their home country, but they often speak multi-languages and regularly interact with personnel from different cultures and continents. Backed by their international experiences, entrepreneurs can slot effortlessly into any event, in any location and remain relevant for the audience.
Pioneers in their fields, entrepreneurs are known for their out of the box approach to business. Bringing the same creative thinking to the events they attend; an entrepreneur speaker is an organiser’s dream to work with as they provide a truly bespoke talk. Uniquely presenting their thoughts and themes, entrepreneurs use the innovative mindset established in their careers to create one-of-a-kind talks, an engaging experience for all in attendance. Organisers can rest assured they have an individual presentation for their guests when they book an entrepreneur speaker.
