If you have ever visited an event or congress, the concept ‘keynote speaker’ might ring a bell. At such an event or congress, there are often multiple speakers that give their presentations and, nearly always, there is at least one keynote speaker amongst them. But what exactly is a keynote speaker?
What is a keynote speaker?
What the exact definition of a keynote speaker is, we cannot tell you. This definition has been changing a lot recently and not everybody has the same perception of what a ‘keynote speaker’ is anymore. We can state that a keynote speaker is a speaker that regularly tells his/her story in front of a large group of people and receives a certain amount of money for doing so. Also, it seems like a keynote speaker is often a speaker that can evoke memories with the audience (by both the story as his/her name) and that can inspire everyone that joins the presentation.
