When your event calls for a guest speaker, you tremble at the thought. You think the hiring process will be long and daunting and no one will be good enough for the job. However, it is essential to research the different opportunities and resources available to you.
Meaning, although hiring a speaker directly is cheaper and an ideal option, however, finding someone can be time-consuming and stressful. Therefore, consider the possibility that it might be best to book through an agency. So, here are some of the reasons why you should work with an agency when hiring a guest speaker.
Agencies Are Experts
When you have made a detailed list of the type of speaker you want attending the event, trust an agency to choose a great match for you. All agencies are experts and only hire the best professional speakers. Do you want the audience members challenged, motivated, consoled, educated, inspired, or even energized? These professional agencies have them all; you just have to spend time and work with them to find the right one for your event.
Agencies are also going to ask you questions. This questioning is because they aren’t going to stick you with the next person available, so by asking questions about your event they also become your event expert.
Agencies Have The Contacts
Another reason you should choose to work with an agency is because an agency is more than going directly to a speaker you found somewhere. They can help you navigate through the thousands of professional speakers out there and find you the best-suited person for the job. This assistance doesn’t just save you time, it also gets rid of the uncertainty of hiring someone who is a stranger to your stage, and even guaranteeing positive results.
It is important to remember that these agencies have the best contacts.
They Aren’t Always About Money
Although it may seem cheaper to work directly with a single professional speaker, however, it is practically the same when working with a professional speaker through an agency. So, don’t worry that you might have to pay more going through an agent. This is because many professional speakers will put you through to the agent anyways since they are too busy themselves. Moreover, since agents book speakers on the daily, you will get the best rate possible as you would going direct. And on the plus side, negotiating with an agent is more straightforward and fast.
They Have Credentials And Are Experts
The final reason why you should consider working with an agency is because they have legitimate credentials and references. With that said, most agencies have websites that offer profiles of all the speakers. So with this, you can view their experience, read their bios, and get to know them before you meet them. These are the best credentials you can get.
Also, they are experts because they also offer testimonials. These are great for seeing if an organization will be a good fit for finding a guest speaker.
With that said, it is great to do all the hunting yourself, but with so much to plan you don’t have time. Eliminate that extra stress by working with an agency to find a guest speaker. It will be worth it.
