Corporate speakers are often highly sought-after individuals due to their ability to sell, inspire, motivate and entertain large audiences. Their infectious personalities make them excellent speakers because they are able to relate to audiences so easily. This is not, however, an innate skill (or at least I do not think it is!). Rather, it is the result of years of practice and market research; that is why corporate speakers are so good. It goes back to that age-old saying: to be the best, you have got to act like the best. This is certainly a common trait amongst corporate speakers, because they are truly hardworking, dedicated and amusing individuals who have an exceptional ability to entertain a crowd. How is it, though, that they are so good? What are the traits of the best corporate speakers? I think it is rather simple, and I would like to explore it in this post.


The first common trait amongst corporate speakers is a genuine passion for their field. Without this passion, the speakers would not half as good as they are. They have a genuine thirst for knowledge of the corporate world which makes them seem entirely in love with the idea of anything corporate. This is reflected in their presentations because they are able to present with enthusiasm, charisma and a genuine passion. This, in turn, will have a profound effect on any audience members because they will feel a strong connection with a speaker who is engaging and entertaining. As a result, they are highly likely to retain the information they have given, therefore making the presentation a success. Such easy success can stem from a simple thing – passion.


As well as being passionate, the best corporate speakers must be highly organised and time-aware. Being organised will allow them to produce concise and precise presentations which are tailored to all the needs, worries and questions that a consumer may have. Time-awareness means that they will never be running out of sync with their schedule, which allows them to be efficient and proactive. Of course, organisational skills are vital in any discipline; however, they are essential in the realm of corporate speakers because it can be such a demanding profession.


In summary, the legend of corporate speakers is an interesting tale which I recommend exploring. A rewarding, challenging and stimulating profession such as corporate speaking should be considered by one and all.
