Webinar and Virtual Event Speakers

We are working with many event organisers to help them deliver webinars, virtual events and meetings during this period of social distancing. 

While webinars cannot replace the incredible power live experiences can bring, working with external speakers can help your employees, leadership teams and wider audiences navigate through these uncertain times and prepare for the future.

Booking an external speaker for a webinar or a virtual event also allows for an intimate environment, where questions can be fielded and the discussions started to provide employees with the energy, motivation and inspirationt to excel in these challenging circumstances.

How to Book a Virtual Webinar Keynote Speaker

The live experience was something that developed a connection between brands and its customers as experiences were created by the act of ‘doing something’ unique and memorable. This might have been taken away from us but the possibility of the connection is more available than ever as every attendee has a front row seat.

The showpiece keynote on a virtual event is not a replacement for the showpiece keynote at a physical live event. It needs to be re-imagined, it needs to be inclusive and deliver energy to an audience who are passively staring at a screen.

Speakers and planners should be asking themselves the questions about how they can make the session interactive, how can questions be asked and answered throughout the session rather than the standard Q&A session at the end.

We advise event organisers to consider how long is a reasonable amount of time for the virtual webinar keynote speaker to deliver a one-way speech before the audience start drifting.

Shorter passages of speech, breakout rooms, polling, questions from every member of the audience rather than those with the confidence to stick their hands up – these are all areas which should and need to be embraced.

Content is and forever will be King, but now more than ever there are opportunities for content to turn to conversation, for questions and interaction for all delegates to take place, it is a chance, almost a requirement for conference organisers to ensure delegates are engaged throughout the event. Turning the virtual event into an interactive experience delivered by the virtual webinar keynote speaker rather than a one-way screen watching experience is the key to the creation of a successful virtual event.

What do our website fee bands mean?

All of the speakers and artists featured on the website are classified within a specific fee range (e.g. E: £3K - £5K). This does not mean the speaker's actual fee will vary between these parameters. Instead, it is an indication that the fee is expected to fall somewhere within that range.

Some speakers may be listed as POA as they deliver a wide range of activities, which may mean that their fees are subject to greater variability depending on the requirements of our clients.

Fee bands are intended as an indication for corporate or private engagements and standard appearances to help you determine which speakers or artists are most likely to fall within your budget. These guides are based largely on our knowledge of the industry and that gained from previous bookings.

Please also note that these fees do not include VAT or expenses, and a firm fee can only be determined having approached speakers with a specific enquiry and full event brief. For the most up-to-date information, please contact a member of the Speakers Corner team, who will be happy to help.
