Sharing your vision with your chosen speaker

The weeks before the event, our operations team will arrange a briefing for the speaker and the event organiser to speak directly on the finer details of the event. This will ensure that your chosen speaker has a thorough understanding of your background, audience and what you are hoping to achieve.
