The past 16 months have been both challenging and rewarding for our company. The pandemic posed a lot of new and unique challenges to businesses everywhere, and the events industry especially. So, Best Corporate Events had to come up with new and unique solutions to address those challenges, custom tailoring our efforts to the situation at hand.

For many years we have been able to offer our experience in customizing and delivering great programs to our corporate clients and DMC partners. Whether we tailored our programs to fit with the rest of a DMC client’s agenda or created an original program for a client with a vision and a need for our expertise, customization has been a valuable tool.

For the last year-plus, customization has become even more important, not just for tailoring program content, but also for providing quality customer experiences by listening to our DMC partners about the needs of their clients. Information provided by DMCs and meeting planners allows us to tailor our entire business accordingly to the needs of the time, from adapting to virtual environments for planning, producing, and delivering events, to tailoring event parameters to a wide variety of different platforms, time frames, time zones, previous program experiences, and beyond. Conducting a thorough needs assessment allows us to provide the client with a unique experience that fits their specific needs and goals from planning to execution.

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
