Certified Special Events Professional

In 2022, the speaking industry finally experienced the return to business that it was waiting for. AAE Speakers recently produced its 2nd Annual Speaking Industry Benchmark Report, and in it, you'll hear from hundreds of event organizers and professional speakers about what business was like in 2022 and what they're planning for in 2023.

Hear from inside the speaking industry, where we've worked for the past two decades with thousands of companies, associations, and universities who leverage the power of the spoken word to open minds, inspire greatness, and empower change in their organizations. These findings have helped event organizers and keynote speakers learn more about what matters most to each other in the speaker booking process, setting everyone up for success.

In this session, attendees will learn more about the findings from this year's survey, along with insight into the speaking booking process from a wider lens: that of other event organizers. Hear the top requested keynote topics for this year, what qualities matter most in selecting a speaker, and what matters most to speakers when considering an offer to speak. Session attendees will enter their next speaker selection and negotiation process more knowledgeable and empowered.
