How to be a Great Keynote Speaker
Article from Self Leadership by Andrew Bryant
From the article: "Sometimes the term ‘Keynote Speaker’ gets misused; it’s like someone who has posted a blog on HBR calling themselves a ‘Harvard Business Review’ columnist."
A keynote speech is a presentation, usually of 20 to 60-minutes, that establishes a main underlying theme, framework or ‘big idea’ of the conference or convention. This is distinct from all the other ‘main stage’ or ‘break-out’ speeches that address specific topics or business updates.
