Sometimes a conference needs a celebrity after-dinner speaker to lift a conference and make sure the event is memorable for your guests or clients. Arranging for a celebrity to come and speak in the evening provides a wow factor at the end of a long day. The important consideration is that the celebrity must be an excellent speaker. Celebrity speakers can provide interesting insights into their lives, sharing humorous anecdotes, as well as important messages.
If you are promoting a conference, celebrity speakers can make your event one that people want to attend, potentially helping to boost ticket sales if that is a requirement. Some celebrities, particularly TV or radio presenters, are particularly experienced and can also make keynote speeches during the day so adding real value to your event. Do make sure you use a respected bureau when booking celebrities, they are often tricky to work with and can need careful handling.
