The Topics Meeting Planners Want for 2020
The tremendous appetite for dialogue on leadership, motivation, disruption and innovation will set the tone for keynote speeches in 2020.
Selecting the right speaker and topic can make or break a meeting, and professional planners prioritize accordingly. The 150 meeting planners surveyed for this report have shared what topics are of most interest to them and their eventgoers for 2020. To get the best insight, we asked a similar question two ways.
When asked a slightly different way, and allowing fewer answers, meeting planners ranked the topics similarly, but not entirely the same. Leadership and motivation remained in the top spot, while innovation and creativity moved up a notch to second place, switching places with trends and disruption, now in third place.
In addition, planners say that a little personalization goes a long way. They want talks that are customized to their audience. Boilerplate speeches get boos from three quarters of meeting pros.
