Many of my clients ask me back for a return performance. It is always a great honor. A higher education client invited me to keynote their management conference two years in a row. This video is the second presentation for this audience.
All of my sessions are very customized. With every client, I work to understand the event, objectives, audience, theme, and agenda. I then craft a presentation that will exceed the client's and audience's expectations.
When I return for a repeat performance, I have enough material that all of the interactive exercises and messages are new and different. We build on the last performance. Sometimes, the client will specifically ask for a certain exercise to be used. Even when I use the same improvisation game, it is always different because the audience volunteers and circumstances have changed.
If you find a great speaker, there are huge advantages for a repeat performance. I have built my credibility with the audience. The audience knows they are going to laugh, be engaged and have an incredible time. Promoting the appearance and conference also becomes easier when you bring back a great speaker because it creates a buzz.
