Three Speakers to Watch

speakerstowatchLooking for Fresh Talent? Check Out a Trio of Up-and-Coming Speakers Today

Catch a glimpse of three of today’s best and brightest up-and-coming speakers at Convening Leaders again this year. “3 Speakers to Watch” happens today from 1:45-2:45 p.m.

The speakers’ identities won’t be revealed until they take the stage. PCMA does this so attendees come in with an open mind and a fresh perspective — and to provide an  element of surprise that helps speakers shine. “Reading about a speaker is not the same as seeing that person present live,” said Kelly Peacy, CAE, CMP, senior vice president of education and events for PCMA.

PCMA works with three of its speaker-bureau partners to find this new talent, with fees that are affordable for the majority of the audience — less than $10,000. Each speaker will present a 15-minute snapshot of his or her standard talk, focusing on broad topics to appeal to a wide range of people and keeping it entertaining, inspirational, and fun.

Through this program, attendees have the opportunity to see three great speakers they otherwise probably wouldn’t have heard of — until everyone else has, and booking fees rise. It’s also an opportunity to demonstrate how PCMA showcases a variety of topics at the same time — allowing attendees to gather ideas about session content and delivery.

Even if you’re not in the market for a new speaker, you’ll still benefit from this session. “Even if people aren’t looking to book a speaker,” Peacy said, “they can still come for the inspiration and walk away with some good takeaways and nuggets of information.”
