The 2013 Speaker Report: The Use Of Professional And Industry Speakers In The Meetings Market

Do you secure speakers for your conferences, events or meetings? If yes, then this report is just for you.

This second report carries the 2011 findings forward and offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available on how speakers fit into the educational landscape. The key findings outline top take-aways from the data and suggest what they might mean for how your organizations approach meetings.

Data shows how professional and industry speakers are chosen, the impact they have on meetings, their costs, whether industry speakers are compensated and what organizations expect from speakers today. There were also some surprises from the 2013 report including the downward trend of livestreaming, the decline of the call for the proposal and the increase in DIY methods to secure speakers.

The five authors from Tagoras and Velvet Chainsaw staff have worked in the learning and meetings space for decades.
