Choosing a guest speaker for your event is of vital importance because it makes or breaks the success of your conference.
The keynote speaker not only creates value by increasing the buzz around the event but has the power to positively advocate for your brand’s reputation. LEO Events’ approach is to understand what will resonate best with our clients and their brands.

A keynote speaker sets the tone and builds anticipation for the meeting. Someone speaking after lunch or a breakout, on the other hand, needs to reignite the energy in the room and motivate attendees.
