60 seconds Linkedin expert tough talk – Finding the right Linkedin Speaker

March 31, 2015 |  by  |  60 Seconds, Linkedin Blog


LinkedIn speakers have a vast knowledge of how to utilise LinkedIn but how do you find the “right” one?


Firstly, try finding LinkedIn speakers who are experienced in public speaking. Using SlideShare can give you a large advantage as you can search for keywords for your event and find old presentations. Start looking for your speaker early, the most popular speakers can often be booked at short notice. It is best to get them before you lose your opportunity. It is best to have a clear focus on the goals and topic of your event so they can be set into action. Once this has been outlined then you can find your perfect target audience and your Linkedin speaker.


It is always best to create a budget so you can pay for the speakers’ fees and travel expenses.  If the speaker is local there may be little or no travel expenses. However, take into consideration the fact that, nearly all speakers will not do a speech for free so some payment will have to be made.


If you can view previous videos of the speaker it would be a great way to get an idea of how they do their presentations and delivery. 

Tough Talk:

Always do research before you choose your speaker. Ask for references; if you don’t get the right speaker for the topic, it will be a waste of your time and the people who came to the speech.


Top LinkedIn Tip:

Always create a plan of action before looking for your speaker, this way you are prepared if something goes wrong.
