When looking to hire a motivational speaker, ask yourself if your organization can incorporate the words of the guest speaker into every day practice. Once you have made a solid motivational speaker selection, it is time to begin the process of acquiring his or her valuable rhetorical services.
You will need to draft a guest speaker invitation letter. Any letter inviting a guest speaker should include the following information: why your organization is interested in the guest speaker and his or her area of expertise; the objectives of the guest speaker speech; your organization's understanding of the motivational speaker's field; and an enclosed suggested outline of the speech.
Read through a few sample letters for inviting guest speakers and you will notice that a guest speaker invitation letter (or follow-up invitation letter) will be sure to include such details as the speech length, the type of audience, the hour, the location and directions, an inquiry about audio-visual requirements and a list of possible questions that should be addressed. Once your guest speaker sample letter has been edited and finalized, it is ready to be sent off!
