Find out how meeting planners are sourcing their keynote speakers in 2020.

Meeting planners take great pride in the quality and selection of the speakers they hire for their events. Every planner has their own system; their preferred way of scouting and sourcing the best talent for the audience they are dazzling.

Locating the best talent for the job is mission critical to a successful event. Connecting with their ideal speaker is a priority for meeting planners, and we wanted to understand how they do it, so we surveyed 150 meeting planners to determine how they are sourcing keynote speakers in 2020.

We recently partnered with top marketing author/speaker Jay Baer and our industry friends at Michelle Joyce Speaker Management to collect the research and analyze the results in this detailed report, "The Top 9 Ways Meeting Planners Find Speakers." Get your free copy now, and you will learn:
