(…to frequently asked questions.)
Choosing a speaker is an important decision. Here are some things to keep in mind when trying to decide on your next keynote speaker.
“Why should we hire Tim O’Shea to speak at our event?”
Answer: You shouldn’t.
I’m serious. You shouldn’t just hire me versus another speaker, or choose me over someone else.
Now why would I say something like that? Especially when the purpose here is to promote me and my keynote programs?
Because your meeting, conference, or convention is important.
You should hire whomever is right for your group.
Whether it’s me or another speaker, you should always get whomever is going to appropriately address the topic areas, concerns, or message you want to get across.
So if you think Tony Robbins can effectively accomplish what you want, great. Hire him. I fully support that. (He also costs at least $100,000 by the way, and that’s just a conservative guess.)
Whomever you hire, you want to make sure they have the right message and the right angle for your particular group. Also, you want to avoid getting burned.
“What is your fee? How much do you cost?”
Answer: Not as much as Tony Robbins. I can tell you that.
What I will say is if this what you are basing your decision on, you may be doing it backwards.
I understand your budget is important to you. That’s why we need to talk by phone first. Every group is different.
