What is a keynote speaker?
You may have heard singers, such as a barbershop quartet, play a single note before singing. That establishes the key for the next song. Similarly, a keynote speaker sets the tone for your conference, convention, seminar or other event. For that reason, they typically speak first following an introduction. A second keynote speaker may speak last, effectively bookending your event.
Guest speakers, on the other hand, more often go into deeper detail regarding the substance of your event. The top sales speakers on this list and offered for booking by the Success Speakers Bureau may serve either or both of these roles.
How does a motivational sales speaker benefit my event?
Perhaps more than any other team in your company, sales departments require two very different skill sets. First, they require the ability to remain motivated. Salespeople, such as real estate agents or industrial marketers, may experience prolonged “dry spells.” The best motivational sales speakers have been there. They are masters at both reinvigorating your team and providing them the tools they need to gain resilience in the face of obstacles.
Second, salespeople require skills that go beyond conventional training and product storytelling. Time-tested best practices in communication, influence and knowing when to listen and when to “close the deal” come into play. Keynote sales speakers have both the background experience as sales leaders themselves and the gift for conveying their talk compellingly while entertaining your guests.
