Five things speakers can learn from event planners

Speak Schmeak

I have two clients who are event planners. They create amazing social and corporate events as well as weddings that would charm your socks off. If you've ever been to a conference, a wedding, a large fundraiser, a political rally, or a memorial service, chances are an event planner was involved. All event planners have one thing in common: No matter how complicated or difficult the planning and organization, they make the event appear seamless.

Are you making these rookie mistakes?

Speak Schmeak

Not checking your venue and equipment in advance This is an important preparation practice, and an experienced speaker knows to check the room as early as possible once engaged and to work with the audio-visual staff to make sure everything is planned to run smoothly. Don't forget to check your room Don't forget your pre-flight check Making a bad space better Take charge of your event These are the most obvious rookie mistakes I see in presentations.

Public Speaking: Don't Go To The Bathroom

Great Public Speaking

Before the event, I made the big mistake of going to the bathroom while other audio visual people were coming into the room. I just spoke at an association meeting where I had set up all my equipment and got everything working just right. When I returned, my entire setup was moved. They actually picked my table up with my laptop and moved it about 8 feet closer to the screen which made the picture so small no one would have been able to see it.

5 things speakers should ask the meeting planner

The Eloquent Woman

(Editor's note: Jennifer Collins is the president and owner of The Event Planning Group , one of the Washington Business Journal's top 25 meeting and event planning agencies in the Washington, D.C. A frequent speaker herself, she's organized every kind of event, from intimate to large-scale. Finding out the overall format of the presentation is critical as well as allowances for audio visual equipment, including internet access.

Who's the boss? You are!

Speak Schmeak

When I peeked in the morning of the workshop, the audio-visual crew happened to be there hooking up the equipment and the rest of the room was exactly as I had requested, so I was able to start setting up right away. Take charge of your event. I just got back from a fabulous quickie trip to San Diego where I delivered a training at a gorgeous resort to a group of fun and willing participants (welcome, ECGMC blog visitors!).

Week 11: Working with program managers

The Eloquent Woman

If you're serious about public speaking, at some point you'll be working with a program manager--the person who arranges events and speakers--to get yourself on a program. Send the manager, board or committee an email or a letter with your bio and a summary of the topics on which you can speak, and indicate your desire to be a speaker for a future event. About the format: Tell me about the event: How many speakers will there be altogether? What's the flow or order of events?

when the speech hands you lemons.

The Eloquent Woman

I arrived and learned that the room booked for the event was under construction , a fact omitted from all the booking conversations the organizers had had. Several board members split up the tasks at hand and pitched in to figure out solutions, including bringing a projector and figuring out how to handle the patchwork of audio-visual equipment. I’m always coaching speakers to plan ahead, then be ready for anything on the ground.

Reviewing those use-or-lose-the-lectern lessons

The Eloquent Woman

Formal events--graduations, church services, funerals and award presentations--almost always demand a lectern , especially if you must frequently refer to notes with people's names (if you're presenting awards or degrees, for example). If you're going this route, be sure to work with the audio-visual technicians to be sure your microphone can move with you).

Week 13: Following up after a speech

The Eloquent Woman

From the audio-visual team to the organizers or audience, be sure to take the time to let them know how much they helped you. Post an update to Twitter or Facebook after you speak, share photos from the event, and post links to your materials where a wider audience can see them. Plenty of speakers focus on preparation and delivery. But in week 13 of Stephanie's online coaching, I want to be sure she--and all of you--keep in mind what happens after your speech.

Week 7: Use-or-lose lectern lessons

The Eloquent Woman

Formal events--graduations, church services, funerals and award presentations--almost always demand a lectern , especially if you must frequently refer to notes with people's names (if you're presenting awards or degrees, for example). If you're going this route, be sure to work with the audio-visual technicians to be sure your microphone can move with you). Choosing whether you'll use or lose the lectern is a major factor in adding presence to your presentation.
