What exactly is a keynote speech? How is Karli different from other speakers?

What's a keynote?

Keynote speeches are a style of delivery. They’re not so much dependent on a topic, but more on the amount of people in an audience. When there is a large group gathered all together in one room it affects the pacing of the presentation, the materials needed, and the type of interactive activities or moments you can create.

Keynote presentations are often seen at large gatherings like corporate retreats, regional or national conferences, large virtual events, or any other large-scale gathering where the full group is brought together with the intent of receiving messaging aimed at everyone regardless of their role.

Many times people are chosen to be keynote speakers for 3 reasons:

  1. Because they are experts in their topic

  2. Because they are charismatic presenters

  3. Because they are famous

The third one is cool, for sure, and is consistently a desirable category.

But it’s usually the most expensive option, and fame is not necessary to receive a quality keynote speech nor is it any indicator that someone is a good or effective speaker.

Most often, we see the first two.

Either the speaker is chosen because they are a subject matter expert or because they are really talented at delivering a presentation that is motivational, inspiring, emotionally charged, or entertaining.

Ideally, you get someone who is a charismatic expert.

This is where I come in!
