What was the last conference you attended? What was it about that event that you remember? Was it the food? Was it the session titles? Was it the speakers?
If you are an event organizer or conference committee member here are 3 reasons to have me, Lawrence Henderson be a conference keynote or breakout session speaker.
1. To network
A big reason I attend events is to meet with like-minded people and industry peers and potential business partners. Conferences bring together people from all different geographical areas who share a common discipline or field, and they are a great way to meet new people in your field. At a conference, we are able to get together with people from a wide range of backgrounds, whom you may not encounter at your home workplace or institution. As a conference keynote and breakout session speaker, I deploy vigor and a call to connect in meaningful and thoughtful ways so that your participants are not just one-and-done attendees.
2. To expand your knowledge and find solutions to problems
I know, I know. So many thought leaders, so little time. I bring 20-plus years of direct and indirect experience in the areas of leadership, organizational development, coaching, and employee engagement. I have a mantra when it comes to gaining new knowledge, “Actions Over Ideas Always Win.” This means I do my work and participants and attendees get real, practical takeaways that they can use immediately.
3. To present your ideas and work to others
Conferences present a unique opportunity to be collaborative. As a speaker, I bring in experiential learning that connects participants to others with a shared mission, vision, and purpose that may be from similar, related, and/or completely different professional areas. My sessions help participants feel more confident about the work they do, and give new perspectives on how they work as people.
If you are up for an interactive, blood-pumping, and energized speaker look no further!
Let’s connect to see what you are looking to accomplish and make magic happen.
