Hot Speaker Topics
As the end of 2015 approaches we at Executive Speakers Bureau look back at some of the hottest speaker topics this year. You’ll find that not only were the topics relevant to audiences in 2015 but will continue to be in 2016.
Largely because of great technological advancements, our world is smaller than ever and many of the top company leaders are younger than they ever have been. Cutting edge corporations highlighted in our daily newsfeeds show millenials at the helm of operations and one of the reasons for this is innovation. The speed at which new ideas are being presented in the workplace is groundbreaking and employees must adapt and embrace these ideas at groundbreaking speeds. Innovation speakers who can convey with depth why innovation is so important will encourage those listening to grasp the idea that change is not just necessary but it is also, in fact, good.
Customer Experience & Employee Engagement
While the mention of innovation can cause instinctive focus on technology in the workplace, it is important to understand that technology does not run a company. People run companies. Companies can’t survive without its customers, making customer service an important aspect of any business. At its core, a thriving work environment will not owe its success merely to incredible innovative advances but to the people who set these advances in motion- and keep them going. Bringing in a customer service speaker whose platform centers on employee engagement will help in creating a work environment that reflects employees’ personal investments, thus translating to better customer experiences. When employees believe the company for which they work cares about them, they in turn care about the company and this becomes evident in their relationships with customers.
The prevalence of social media and the ability to almost instantly be aware of anything happening globally now plays a large role in our current political landscape. Many with personal stakes in public election matters can get their voices heard louder than ever before. There has been a shift in the way our political landscapes are formed and political speakers addressing such are of utmost importance. Changes in position and direction bring about the need for increased guidance; there exists a yearning for answers to questions dotting the altered landscape. A political speaker who is sensitive to the changes, the people affected by these changes and those not necessarily comfortable with the changes, can create an atmosphere wherein all will find they have a safe place to stand in the landscape.
Effective change requires great leadership. Innovative ideas don’t change lives until they are acted upon. Those with life-changing ideas must be given a platform by leaders who believe in them so that everyone profits from the evolution of concept to product. Also, with so much hyperconnectivity and change in today’s world, leaders must find the balance between increasing the bottom line and fostering an environment with employees and clients in which that increase truly matters to them. Leadership speakers can help pull all of these different topics into one presentation, demonstrating how each plays a significant role in the formation of a great leader.
2016 is going to be a big year. Huge leaps in technology will continue to impact our personal and professional lives. With the click of a button employee and customer experiences will be shared around the world- as told from their perspective. A presidential election will take place.
