There is no doubt in the fact that there are good as well as bad celebrity speakers. They hold a lot of importance to your event that the quality of the speaker can make your event or in some cases even break it. When you are organizing an event, in order to make certain that the guests attend the event is, get celebrity speakers. This is a kind of motivation for people to attend your event.
Speakers’ Spotlight Canada suggests that there are a few essentials that you need to keep in mind while you are looking for celebrity speakers. Below listed are the features of a good celebrity speaker that you need to look out for your event:
He/she should be a person who tells stories in entertaining and funny ways. This is certainly a very good quality in the celebrity speakers. When you are looking out for a speaker, listen to their past speeches. Make certain that you listen to the speeches as a member of the audience. If you find it entertaining then that is the celebrity to hire for your event. This is because the primary purpose of the speech is to entertain the audience with anecdotes. In case you are not certain whether a specific celebrity has good and entertaining stories to tell, pick their autobiography and give it a read. If this is not possible, then look out for television programs on the Internet where he/she has hosted or given a speech.
Just hiring a raconteur for your event is not enough. There is one more thing that you need to consider. Being a good narrator includes having a soothing voice. The story and the voice should be such that it engages people to listen. You should not hire celebrities who are dull as well as repetitive. You need to choose a speaker who has a unique voice and it is such that even without seeing the speaker when he/she speaks, the audience knows who he/she is. The celebrity speakers should attract them and make them attend the entire event.
There are chances that the voice of your celebrity in person and during the speech sound different because of the loud volume. You can do research online on their voice. All you need to do is type their name into the search engine and related videos will be displayed within seconds.
You should choose a celebrity that makes the story come alive with their gestures. It is just not possible for any person to speak in a manner where he/she does not use his/her hands or other body parts to express. When body gestures are a part of the speech, it engages the audience with subject of the speech. However excessive use of the body gestures is a big turn off. Thus, ensure that the celebrity you wish to call for the speech to your event is good at it.
Celebrity speakers might not be like motivational speakers or entrepreneurial speakers, no one expects them to be that way but that have to be entertaining and engaging.
