Speaker Fit: A Quick Checklist for Event Planners

Speaker Fit: A Quick Checklist for Event Planners

Being an event planner is both a challenge and a blessing. This Speaker Fit Checklist will help you select the best speaker for your next event.  

Audience-Fit. Is your audience multi-generational or a specific age group? Consider what the speaker offers through her background, experiences, and ability to effectively connect and communicate.

Theology-Fit. Review the speaker’s website and mission statement. Consider how her beliefs line up with the theology of your organization.

Topic-Fit. The title and topic are important for telling others why they should come. Choose an easy-to-work-with speaker who can either help select a great topic or stick to the one you’ve chosen.  

Budget-Fit. Speakers need to be remunerated for their time. Cost can sometimes supersede other important details for a good Speaker-Fit.  Did you know that some speakers are willing to serve for a love offering or for a minimal honorarium? Others help you brainstorm ways to make it work. If it truly feels like a good fit, God will work out the finances.

Style-Fit. Will your event be light-hearted, serious, or a combination?  Choose a speaker who gives messages that are a match for the event you have in mind.

Travel-Fit. Inviting a speaker from your area is definitely easier on your budget. Many speakers are flexible and will come for the budget you have in mind for travel, food, and lodging.

Referral-Fit. When the speaker you are considering is new to you, take time to read and consider the statements by others posted on the speaker’s profile page. 

“Extras”-Fit. A speaker who leads worship and special music is a big plus for saving cost and ensuring that the program flows seamlessly. 

Team-Fit. Most importantly, choose a speaker who is a team player, experienced, and passionate about reaching your women with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
