Booking a sports speaker for a sporting related event is a great way to do something a little different that will entertain the guests. It will turn the night from a great event to an outing that the guests will never forget. Picture the reaction from the invitees, when the special speaker for the evening is announced. The sound of the audience’s delight will feel like a stadium of fans cheering on their favorite team. Drum the guests up and get them pumped and excited to attend the event and support the cause or organization that has put the event together.
A Night to Remember Forever
Your guests will be hanging on to every word that the sports star utters as they recount tales from yesteryear, reminding the audience of famous victories, sharing personal triumph, and providing a peek into the real life of a sports star. In addition to inspirational stories that will bring the audience to tears, the guest speaker can also bring them to tears with laughter as they share intimate stories about what really happened in the dressing room, and other hilarious stories from their celebrated past.
After entertaining the guests from the stage following a guaranteed standing ovation, the chosen sport speaker will hang out and shake hands, pose for photos, and chat with the dinner guests.
Tickets Will Likely Sell Out
When you choose the right sports speaker for a sportsman’s event, think of it the same as choosing the menu. The name on the promotional material will ensure that the tickets sell out quickly and the anticipation of hearing this sporting legend speak will create a buzz around town about the event. Groups will be buying tickets in droves, securing their place at a table with their friends and partners. Including things such as raffles for simply purchasing a ticket can entice those who might be on the fence about attending the event.
What the Speaker May Also Do
On the night of the event, in addition to treating the guests to the sporting tales of their past, you may also ask the speaker to help you with fundraising that has been planned by asking them to draw the raffles, host auctions, or pose for official photographs. Hiring an after dinner sports speaker will also encourage guests to stay for the entire event from beginning to end. Often times attendees will come for the pre-dinner photo ops to show face and then enjoy dinner and leave. When you choose the right speaker for an event, guests will also show up early and stay late with the hopes of being able to have intimate conversation with the sports star or even just snap a picture.
Whichever speaker you have chosen to attend the event, you are guaranteed to host a night to remember – one that people will talk about for many months or years later. This will help to build the anticipation of similar events that are planned for the future.
To get a better idea of who the attendees would like to see speak at a similar event, have them provide suggestions once they get the feel for how the event is handled. Taking suggestions will help to get a wide range of possible guest speakers, that way the organizers can choose one not only based on fame, but also based on their reputation with those who are attending the event. It will be very beneficial to the event as a whole for the speaker to appeal to the largest range of individuals that are likely to buy tickets to attend the sportsman’s event.
