PEP Talks for Events are specifically designed keynote speeches that address the theme of the event… and the event almost always has to do with building culture. Whether your organization is in need of a speaker for a corporate gathering to celebrate a milestone, compete in a round of team building , or kick-off a new product and/or service, the role of a PEP Talk is to educate, entertain, encourage, and empower your audience to reach their full potential… as individuals and as a group.
In order to do this, there are a few things a speaker must do well in order to provide a successful and engaging keynote speech.
- The speaker must help the audience connect with what the organization does.
- The speaker must help the audience connect with who the audience does it with.
- The speaker must help the audience connect with who the audience does it for.
In other words, my role as your guest speaker is to help you make stronger, healthier, longer-lasting connections to the job at hand, the people you work with, and the people your work serves.
If this is achieved, most speakers would consider their service a success.
This is where our PEP Talks for Events differs from other keynote speeches/speakers.
As anyone who has ever planned an event knows, engagement always builds up to the event, peaks at the event, and then falls off after the event. However, these levels of engagement always vary depending on the amount of time, money, and energy spent on these three (3) areas:
- Pre-event: Promotion (i.e. traffic)
- During Event: Connection (i.e. conversion)
- Post-event: Engagement (i.e. return on investment)
Many people get this wrong and are often satisfied when engagement peaks at the event. Instead, we believe “connection” is the goal of an event and actual “engagement” should happen afterwards. In other words, when you hire a professional speaker, you should expect a “return on investment” that lasts longer than their time on stage. Our PEP Talks are different in the sense that while we are intentional about building connection, we are also intentional about cultivating those relationships long after the event.
