Whether you’re still hosting virtual corporate events or getting ready for in-person gatherings again, booking the right speaker is a vital part of the event planning process.
But how do you begin to choose the right speaker for your event? In the United States alone, there are 40,000 public speakers––and the industry is expected to grow by 4.1% every year until 2025.
As the world becomes increasingly connected, and the options for employees to work from home continue to increase, it gets harder and harder for people to maintain a comfortable work life balance. This is not because employers are encouraging that more work be completed over longer hours, simply, the shift has happened on its own due to the accessibility of information and communication.
We’ve been cooking up something BIG with the team over at SpeakerFlow. And after over a year of development, we’re excited to introduce GigOS.
It combines everything you need to run your speaking business in one place: custom CRM for speakers, EventCX specialized calendaring and automation platform, marketing exposure through the eSpeakers directory network, access to eSpeakers Lead Center, and 40+ other tools to run your business end-to-end. And they’re all integrated!
Nothing kills a presenter’s credibility, frustrates attendees, and buries the message faster than a presenter who is hard to see, hard to hear, or who is struggling with basic technology.
This course will help you avoid all of those issues. If you implement the practical guidance in this course, your content and presentation skills will be able to shine through the screen and impact everyone in your virtual meeting. This course includes about 2 hours of materials, and then you’ll be prepared to schedule your assessment to get the Certified Virtual Presenter — or CVP — badge.

Events have quickly taken themselves online as 2020 has brought on serious limitations when it comes to in-person gatherings. We all had to make these adjustments with little warning, which means that a lot of us went for the first virtual event software we could find.
Now that we’re a bit more settled in and better adjusted to this virtual world, we can take the time to evaluate software choices. Choosing the best virtual event software is a common problem many event planners have today.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Certified Virtual Presenters Now Available
Salt Lake City, UT — May 12, 2020 — The shift to online meetings brought on by Covid-19 has highlighted the urgent need for event organizers to find speakers who deliver their content remotely. Many of the old sources for keynoters and trainers do not give any indication of a presenter’s online ability via Zoom, WebEx, etc.
To assist their friends in the event organization business, eSpeakers announces the Virtual Presenter certification. This certification is a basic test of a presenter’s equipment, environment, and skill using remote presentation tools like Zoom, WebEx, etc.
All of us here at eSpeakers want to send our best wishes to all of you in the speaking industry during this challenging time. These are these unprecedented times in this industry, but there’s something you can do right now.
When we see a challenge, we also see opportunity. Many companies are instituting work-from-home policies and social distancing. This new work environment is challenging for many employees, creating a more fragmented workforce and straining company morale.
