When making your investment, it is important to learn about the speakers’ books and online training in case there is an opportunity for additional learning. Speakers will often include free copies or subscriptions to each organization. You may want to include the offerings in door prizes or offer specific members of the organization that can benefit from the added learning.
Online training and books can also be offered at a discount rate for bulk order purchases. Taking advantage of the discounts and offering attendees a complimentary gift will always be remembered long after the event by each attendee. Much like a breakout session, they offer additional learning opportunities for attendees and will assist them in implementing the strategies in their personal and professional lives.
THE BOOKS TELL THE STORY – THE KEYNOTE BRINGS THE OUTCOMES
Many speakers are Canadian bestselling authors or have books related to their topics. Speakers Books are a great way to engage attendees before the event or help engage participants to the outcomes of the presentation after the event. Through investing in a bulk order purchase for the audience, attendees will have the opportunity to learn strategies, get to know the speaker and expand on their experience of participating in the event. Many speakers have inspirational stories, lived experiences and a high level of expertise, and offer researched and proven advice for personal and professional growth.
ATTENDEES RARELY READ BOOKS? ASK THE SPEAKER IF THEY HAVE AN AUDIOBOOK
With companies like audible and google books, many speakers have converted their books into audiobooks, which can also be offered to attendees. Audiobooks can be purchased as a licensing fee and the speaker can offer a bulk order subscription to attendees. Audiobooks are great since they can be listened to anywhere, often with the speaker being the narrator.
THE PRESENTATION INSPIRES THE MINDSET SHIFT– THE ONLINE TRAINING CHANGES BEHAVIOUR
Online training is a great way to have attendees learn the skills that are inspired by the speaker through their presentation. Since the attendees will already know the speaker and their story through the keynote presentation it creates repour with attendees, and they are already engaged to start working on their development through the online training. Online training, masterclasses and virtual learning is a great way for the audience to feel like they are appreciated by the speaker and the event planning team. Get the keynote that inspires and then get the skills that pay the bills to bring your employees to the next level.
IS ONLINE TRAINING EFFECTIVE?
We must admit, some online training can be difficult or unprofessional making it ineffective. Depending on how much time and effort the speaker has spent on their online training, it will determine how valuable the online training is. Our professional speakers won’t just launch online training that doesn’t work. Many of them charge over $1,000 per sign up since it has been tested and proved with different organizations. Online training also depends on how engaged the employee is to be wanting to learn and implement the skills they learn. We feel that the best online training has been accredited within different industries, and many of our speakers online training has done just that.
THE BIGGEST VALUE OF BOOKS, AUDIO BOOKS & ONLINE TRAINING? TURNING THE ENGAGEMENT AND LEANRING UP AT YOUR EVENT!
