Part of the Meeting and Event Planning For Dummies Cheat Sheet

  • Know the program objectives.

  • Understand audience needs.

  • Ask for references.

  • View a demo video.

  • Don’t assume that all celebrities know how to deliver an effective speech.

  • Be wary of grandiose claims.

  • Provide speakers with good information so they give you what you want.
