Healthcare is one of the most important topics in America today and healthcare speakers are more in demand than ever before. Whether you are seeking a healthcare speaker for your hospital, company insurance plan, conference or event, there are many ways to find the right healthcare speaker for your event. The process may require you to rethink your plans and clarify your goals, but in the long run, your investment will pay greater dividends in the form of usable knowledge.
Before you spend a lot of time researching the right healthcare speaker, make sure you know your topic and the goal of your event. If you are trying to find a speaker for a specialized subject, such as breast cancer or the cost of healthcare in state-run hospitals, you may require a healthcare speaker who is a top expert in those fields. Are you trying to educate your workers about health issues and how your insurance plan can address them? Hiring healthcare speakers may be as simple as dialing up your company’s insurance provider and asking for a representative to appear or make a recommendation.
Having an Alternative Plan
After you’ve narrowed down a list of your top choices for healthcare speakers, it’s then time to do more footwork. You should call all your choices, even if the first one you call sounds perfect. Healthcare speakers can have hectic schedules, as most of them work in the healthcare field in addition to speaking. Make sure when you talk to them to find out what other commitments they have, or if they’re on call somewhere so that they don’t have to cancel last minute for an emergency. If this sounds like too much to take on personally, it might be a good idea to have a booking agency that specializes in keynote speakers handle this for you.
It’s a good idea to make sure you have a back-up plan, too. You might want to book two healthcare speakers and plan on having them both. If you have two healthcare speakers and one can’t make it, at least you’re not left out to dry. If your budget doesn’t permit booking two healthcare speakers, another alternative is to have a very good videotape. If you end up having to show a tape instead of having a live healthcare speaker, you probably want to have at least someone there who will introduce the absent speaker and answer questions.
