While in-person speaking engagements and appearances remain popular, businesses, event planners and conference organizers are looking for ways to still bring new ideas to the table during the coronavirus outbreak. This has led them to request if some of the world's top motivational speakers can make custom virtual video presentations.
With social distancing, large events are not being scheduled. However, your employees or regular target audience can still be impacted by a tailored webinar delivered by one of the world's greatest minds in business, technology and more.
At Speaker Booking Agency, we have seen a spike in requests for these virtual appearances in the last week. However, they have always been something for clients who are looking for an easy and cost-effective way to book talent.
Our sports division recently booked University of Minnesota football coach P.J. Fleck for one of these speeches. It was in Chicago, meaning he did not have to travel and siphon time away from his busy coaching and recruiting schedule.
Coach Fleck was still able to deliver a riveting presentation and our client was very happy with the impact the message made. Here are a few more reasons why, custom, virtual keynote speakers can be a great fit.
1. Accommodate scheduling
Due to busy schedules, it can be hard to book some of the top talent to speak at your conference, convention or business. People are always balancing their professional obligations, an often full speaking calendar and much-need personal and family time.
Booking someone to record a custom video speaking engagement gives the talent flexibility with their time. It also can help you hire someone you may have not been able to due to scheduling conflicts.
2. Save money
Everyone wants to save money when they can and video presentations are a cost-effective option as opposed to regular engagements. Since the keynote speaker no longer has to travel and can record your virtual video at a convenient time, you can save anywhere from 20%-50% off standard booking fees.
With that sizable discount, your organization can shoot higher to attract a more in-demand speaker than you may have originally thought of.
3. Coronavirus concerns
The final benefit of one of these custom video speeches is that they provide flexibility for everyone during this uncertain time. Many larger events are getting canceled due to the coronavirus, meaning a remote talk is a perfect way to compromise.
Also, many top keynote speakers probably do not want to travel during this time, so hiring them to do a custom video makes everything easier.
Regardless of what happens in the weeks and months to come, Speaker Booking Agency is dedicated to top customer service as always. Our agreements include a coronavirus clause that allows clients to postpone their events and reschedule at any time in a 12-month window.
