An loves speaking in front of various size audiences, and through experience she has learned it is best to have a few ground rules in place to ensure the best possible outcome for both you, as the organiser and her as the speaker.
In order for the talk to appeal to your audience, she would need to know the following:
- Who is the target audience?
- What is the purpose of the talk or workshop?
- Their level of knowledge of the topic
- Is there a theme to follow?
- What else will be requested from the speaker in preparation of the event and during?
- Include Gamification Nation Ltd branding, we can add a logo for your event when provided by the organizer. Branding remains included as well as company contact details.
