Keynote and After-Dinner
Knowing that a keynote, after-dinner or luncheon speaker can greatly enhance or ruin your event, you look for a dynamic, enthusiastic, entertaining and informative professional speaker who is easy to work with, affordable, and who will ensure that your attendees thoroughly enjoy and get great benefit out of the presentation. Tim Huddleston fully understands that your speaker is a key part of making your event a true winner. Tim guarantees that his presentations will be instructional, motivational, and entertaining, leaving the audience fired up and ready to make positive changes.
Tim’s focus with his keynote speeches is to set a totally positive and productive pace and tone for your event, or, in the case of a closing speech, reinforce the message of the event. With his after-dinner or luncheon speech, he reinforces the theme and message of your event while providing an enjoyable and relaxing experience for the audience. While his speeches generally center on professional, personal and communal development, he will easily adapt to the focus you desire.
Tim strongly believes that while good speakers focus on the audience at hand, truly powerful speakers facilitate positive change among the attendees. Tim works very hard to ensure that his speeches soundly connect with the audience, inspiring them to take positive action long after the event is over. To accomplish this, Tim gets to know the audience long ahead of time in order to incorporate appropriate connecting references into his speech. He does an inordinate amount of research prior to the event in order to deliver a powerful presentation. He becomes intimately familiar with the mission and accomplishments of, as well as the challenges to the organization, the industry it serves, the purpose and theme of the conference, and the demographics of the attendees. He reviews the agenda, the organization’s and event’s websites, and any printed marketing materials sent to attendees.
Whenever possible, as appropriate and acceptable to you, he also likes to speak to several of the intended participants before the event, all in an effort to truly understand the unique aspects and needs of the audience and your desired outcome of his presentation.
