FAQ's and Celebrity Booking Agent Tips

Association Motivational Keynote Speaker - Q: Direct Sportslink has secured many sports celebrity motivational speakers for associations, do you have any tips on what some of the better speakers offer an association? A: We usually recommend when an association is looking to hire a keynote guest speaker that they do the following: 1) Look for an experienced motivational speaker who is based in your area. This will add more relevance for your audience. If the audience is nationwide, hire a motivational speaker who had a broad appeal or someone who has accomplished a feat at the highest level. For example, an Olympic Gold Medalist works well for broad appeal. 2) Find a guest speaker who has an affinity to your audeince. Our business speaker listings will give you a good idea of sports celebrities who have been involved in the food and beverage business, car dealership, security, IT, and the investment business to name a few. This will allow you to select a sports celebrity who brings credibility to your event.
