02 Nov WHY ARE INTERNAL MEETINGS KEYNOTE SPEAKERS TOP DRAWS FOR EVENT PLANNERS?
Working as internal meetings keynote speakers, business advisors and futurist speaking presenters, it’s becoming infinitely clear to us that there are many different types of internal meetings that organizations hold:
- Team/Department Meetings – Regular recurring meetings for teams or departments to discuss day-to-day work, issues, plans, etc. Usually weekly or biweekly, and internal meetings keynote speakers often participate in such programs.
- All-Hands Meetings – Larger meetings that bring together the entire company to share news, recognize achievements, discuss changes, etc. Often monthly or quarterly.
- Town Halls – Similar to all-hands but with an open Q&A format (sometimes featuring drop-ins and fireside chat type programs by internal meetings keynote speakers) where employees can ask leadership questions.
- Strategy Meetings – Meetings focused on long-term planning, goal-setting, vision, etc. for a team, department or company. May be annual.
- Project Meetings – Discuss the status and next steps of an ongoing project. Often weekly or as-needed.
- Management Meetings – Regular meetings for leadership teams to discuss priorities, challenges, alignment across the organization.
- Committee/Task Force Meetings – Cross-functional working groups assembled to address a specific issue. Meet as needed. Sometimes bring in internal meetings keynote speakers to serve as a sounding board or get them up to speed on emerging technologies, trends and other new or breaking business developments.
- Training/Development Meetings – Sessions to teach skills, processes, etc. to employees.
- Sales Meetings – Regular touch bases for sales teams to review metrics, prospects, and best practices. As you might imagine, meeting and event planners often work with internal meetings keynote speakers here to help elevate and add a sense of dynamism to various programs.
