How Sales Speakers Can Benefit Your Team

There’s an abundance of benefits to bringing in an external sales speaker to talk to your team. Whether the goal is as simple as to inspire and motivate your workforce to push themselves and the business further, enhance skillsets to reach the next level or to begin the process of fostering a growth mindset, the perfect sales speaker will understand your goals and tailor their experience, storytelling and teachings to tick every box you’re after.

Salesmen rely on their powers to convince, influence and bond with others to gain business. A sales speaker must do all this whilst not only sharing a fantastic message but doing so confidently in front of a room filled with individuals keen to learn.

Tips for Maximising the Impact of Sales Speakers

There are countless steps that could be taken here, let's break it down into two parts – before and after the event.

Before the event, and before you’ve even secured a speaker, the best first step to take is to understand the purpose of the event - this will make everything else so much easier! Once you’ve got into the nitty-gritty of the event’s needs, it’s time to research. Research the industry and try to gauge the style of sales speaker you want: are you after more of a keynote speech with informational power points, or do you learn best from an interactive workshop with audience participation?

Once you’ve got a rough idea of the type of speaker you want, it’s time to communicate all of the above to your Speakers Corner Account Manager, who will do the rest for you.

Once your perfect sales speaker has been secured, the event briefing call is a fantastic time to reiterate the event’s requirements, along with your expectations of the event and the speaker. Communication is key! You can learn more about how to get the most out of your event by reading this blog we’ve written (although it’s aimed for comedians, the planning content works almost anywhere!) - How to Hire a Comedian For Your Event.
