We all need to get more from our conference speakers.

In this interview between an experienced event professional William Thomson, MD of Gallus Events (who has had 5000 speakers at his events) and one of the best international professional speakers, Richard Newman Founder of BodyTalk, we look at the secrets of getting the best content from your speakers.

How do you get your speakers to perform at their best? We have some answers and a brilliant FREE speakers brief.

We look at how to brief a speaker, why you should pay your speakers, the importance of the venue and the space.

Includes loads of tips to make sure you get the best content from your speakers at your conference.

I have five main points.

1. EVERY single speaker (almost without exception) needs the support of the conference organiser.

2. The conference organiser impacts the content as much as the speaker.

3. As the conference organiser it is YOUR event and you are in charge, so you have to demand brilliant content.

4. There’s a quid pro quo. You have to give something in return to get brilliant content.

5. The conference organiser has a PROACTIVE role to help a speaker’s session to be memorable.
