What is a Keynote Speaker?
The Keynote Speaker is the star of a conference and the person who sets the mood of the event. The speaker should be able to feel & comprehend the essence of the event from all corners.
Also, he/she should be able to highlight the most significant elements of the event and make clear the mission or goals or the reasons why this event is the best place to be for the audience.
In other words, the Keynote Speaker is introducing to the audience what they should expect from the conference/event. Usually, the Keynote Speaker has to do a lot of research about the related industry, brand, and audience.
It’s common sense, that when the Keynote Speaker is the Founder or/and the CEO of a Company, then by default he/she is the right person to initiate a Conference.
