Keynote Speakers

Keynote Speakers add impact to corporate events. A keynote speaker has the opportunity to take an audience on an intellectual and emotional journey that can propel an audience to a new place, position, or outlook.  A keynote in public speaking is a talk that establishes a main underlying theme. In corporate or commercial settings, importance is attached to the delivery of a keynote speech or keynote address.

The keynote establishes the framework for the following event agenda; frequently the role of keynote speaker will include that of event moderator. It will flag up a larger idea – a literary story. Each keynote speaker’s content has an area of focus.  Keynote speakers specialize in everything from sales to global affairs to team-building to positive thinking. The basic point of a keynote speaker is to change the minds of a group of people, to persuade them of something they hadn’t seen, known, or believed before.

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak, and to sit down and listen.”  – Winston Churchill

Keynote speech

The keynote address or keynote speech is delivered to set the underlying tone and to summarize the core message relevant to the event.   The speech is often selected to raise interest in a particular field. A keynote speech is given at a conference or large meeting sponsored by a company or association, it draws attendees to attend that program. The keynote speaker is selected by his or her expertise in a particular field, or who has wide name recognition due to their accomplishments. A good speech will raise enthusiasm among prospective attendees and be of value to the audience.

According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than delivering the eulogy.– Jerry SeinfeLD

Selecting a Top Keynote Speaker

Top keynote speakers establish the purpose, topic and vision for the event up front; they consider the audience and demographics and will work out what is likely to resonate. They will define beforehand what your audience should know and feel.   Different speakers have different strengths. Some are entertaining, some are organised, and some are inspirational. You want your speaker to leave a lasting positive impression.

Top keynote speakers will come recommended; they will have had success in the past with similar audiences. They will align their topics with vision for the event.

“The finest art of communication is not learning how to express your thoughts. It is learning how to draw out the thoughts of another.” – Ted Tripp

Keynote Speaker Fees

You get what you pay for. Once you have a budget, hire the best speaker you can afford.   Make sure you don’t skimp on the speaker fees in comparison to the food and wine budget. Years after your event, most people will still be talking about a certain speaker who really moved and inspired them and not what they had to eat.

A good speaker comes with a large fee from $10,000 plus. Explore what they offer, for example they might offer one on one meetings with a couple of key people in the audience at the end of the event. It’s always good to have your speaker be available at the end of the event as guests love to talk to the keynote speaker.



There are two types of speakers: Those who get nervous and those who are liars. – Mark Twain
