Frequently Asked QuestionsFor clients looking at booking a Speaker or Trainer

If you have a question about booking a speaker, trainer or a coach or the logistics of organising an event with a speaker or trainer, then this is the place for you.

Take a look at the below frequently asked questions and if your query hasn't been answered, contact us  and we will respond to all your queries promptly.

1. How do I choose a speaker/Trainer?

To choose the right speaker for your event, it is important to address the themes of your event, expected outcome and the event's intention. From there, it is easier to choose the perfect speaker, trainer dependant on their field of expertise and style of speaking.

Similarly, by identifying the profile of the audience you are expecting, it is easier to choose a speaker/trainer who will engage and create impact.

An average speaker talks for around 45-60 minutes, so it is beneficial for you to hire someone who can capture the audience's attention for that long. A trainer is usually booked for half day, full days, longer duration or multiple times depending upon the brief.

This is where OUTspoken Speakers come in. With decades of experience, we are able to quickly identity the speaker/trainer who fits your brief and provide the right solution.

Once you have clarity on the topic, target audience/profile and the budget, it is easy for an agency to support you with the right speaker/trainer.
