How To Plan A Church Event With Christian Speakers
Posted by Cindi Davis
There are many benefits to holding a church event, especially when you are able to bring in Christian speakers. You may be looking to raise money for your church or even build up your congregation. Regardless of why you want to hold the event, you want to make sure that you plan everything effectively so you get the turn out that you were hoping for.
The event planning should be done well in advance of the actual event. You want to figure out how you will invite people to the event. You can use the internet, the radio, the television as well as local publications to get the word out. Do you plan on inviting the congregation or the whole community?
Christian speakers are going to be welcome because they offer an executive presence to help deliver the message. When you want to make sure everyone is getting value from the event, it is advantageous to hire a professional speaker that has a good reputation for professing the faith. Plus, the congregation will get to hear someone other than the pastor speak about religion for a change of pace.
When you decide to look at different professional speakers, it’s important to know how to sort through them all. Especially when it comes to Christian speakers, they may come from a wide range of backgrounds. You need to find someone who is able to convey the same message that your church delivers on a regular basis.
If you find a speaker that is going to go off on a tangent or preach a story that you don’t want delivered to your congregation, everyone may leave the event confused – and this is exactly what you don’t want to have happen. By working with a talent agency to obtain Christian speakers, you can ensure that you are getting professionals with a background that you can check up on. The agency can even help to pair the right speaker with your church, saving you time.
Once you have the Christian speaker in place, you can focus on some of the other aspects to the event. Is your band or choir going to play some songs? Will you be serving any food or drink? Will there be anyone else speaking at the event? You will want to make sure you create a full timeline for the event so that everyone knows what is going on.
The Christian speakers that you hire will need to be informed of the schedule. They will need to know how long you are giving them on the floor so they can arrange their speech to fill that time. You will want to go over what you expect from them, too. This includes the tone that they will use, any messages you do or do not want covered and whether it is okay for them to reach out and get crowd participation.
Your event can be a success with the right planning and with the right speaker in place.
Exploring the Many Different Types of Trade Show Models
Posted by Cindi Davis
Trade shows are a valuable resource for companies who are reaching out to other businesses and trying to expand their reach with consumers. However, there’s more to a successful trade show than renting space and putting out a table. The other attendees have a limited amount of time and energy, so they won’t stop at every display. If they believe they’ve seen a company at another show and weren’t interested, then they might not give that company a second chance. However, this can be overcome by having the right trade show models and fantastic talent at the table.
Crowd gatherers will work to ensure your booth is constantly surrounded by attendees. These individuals, armed with in-depth knowledge regarding your company, will draw crowds to your table with their dynamic personalities. Individuals need to see something fresh if they’re going to visit a presenter’s table, and this is particularly true if they saw that company in the past and weren’t impressed. That first impression is vital, so companies are wise to invest in modern tables, fresh configurations and outgoing trade show models who’ll work to draw the people in as they are walking by.
Hosts and Hostesses
While those staffing the tables don’t have to be models, they should be appropriately dressed and looking their best. Hosts and hostesses will make sure your booth is near and orderly at all times, while also ensuring that visitors are equipped with all the information they need regarding your booth and your company.
The point of the trade show is to garner new contacts and business, but that cannot happen if people walk away with contact information. A booth facilitator will ensure that individuals not only visit your booth, but that they remain at the booth long enough to learn information about the company. A booth facilitator can be especially helpful if your booth contains multi-media devices such as screens and tablets that require explanation or demonstrations. They will make sure the necessary information reaches your audience in an engaging and concise manner.
It takes talent to reach out to people walking by and get them to stop for a closer look. The best displays can only go so far, and then it’s up to the trade show models to take things to the next level. Presenters are confident professionals that will give demonstrations regarding the nature of your business and any new happenings within the company. If you are unveiling a new product, a presenter will educate attendees and make certain they leave your booth fully informed about the company and product.
This year, companies are looking to make the most of trade shows by investing in the right displays and staff. They know that these are important opportunities, and they’re looking to maximize on the exposure by bringing people to the table and sending them away with accurate contact information. If finding the right talent is proving challenging, consider hiring trade show models and talent to ensure your company is properly represented at your next trade show.
The Booming Hispanic Market: Why You Need Spanish Voice Talent
Posted by Cindi Davis
As a business owner or executive, you understand how important it is to reach your target audience in the most effective ways possible.

The growing need for Spanish voice talent can be seen in the growing Hispanic population across the United States. As of July 2012, this was the largest racial or ethnic minority in the country, and Hispanics represented over 17 percent of the population. The rate of growth is tremendous. Between July 2011 and July 2012, the entire U.S. population grew by about 2.3 million people. Of this amount, approximately 1.1 million people were Hispanic.
Projections for Hispanic Population Growth
Between now and 2050, the ethnic make-up of the United States is expected to see a dramatic shift. Currently, about 67 percent of the United States population is white and 14 percent are Hispanic. Projections of current trends indicate that the Caucasian population in 2050 will only be about 47 percent of the total U.S. population and about 29 percent will be Hispanic. There is expected to be little to no significant change in other ethnicities between now and 2050.
Repositioning Your Marketing Strategy
As a business owner or executive, it is important to take time to consider how this change in population growth and ethnic diversity in the United States will impact your business. Companies that take a forward-thinking approach to marketing and that make an effort to establish a relationship with this population may thrive in coming years.

Why the Need for Political Speakers Will Always Exist
Posted by Cindi Davis
When planning a major event, it’s important to plan all of the fine details. The keynote speaker for an event will make the difference between educating the audience or leaving the audience feeling disappointed in the entire gathering. Political speakers are a popular choice because they can appeal to a wide range of audiences, they’re well-recognized, and the often have special messages to share with the group.
Keeping Up with Current Events
Political speakers aren’t static. They keep up with current events and changing trends, and this appeals to an incredible range of audiences. This knowledge of recent news and important events allows the speaker to connect with guests and keep their attention, and they can tie those recent events and news stories to the message a host is trying to impart.
The Impact of a Celebrity
Political speakers are sometimes politicians, but they don’t have to be. Well-known celebrities and even comedians can also speak to modern audiences and make that connection with them. They can use politics as a base point to help reach people and engage them in the information. The benefit of working with a celebrity is that a little bit of the star power comes through and helps grab the audience’s attention. Audiences will feel the connection with both the celebrity and the message that they’re trying to bring across.
Motivational Speakers with a Purpose
Political speakers can be motivational, and they often have a purpose behind their message. It’s not just about leaving the audience with a warm, fuzzy feeling after the speech concludes. The best speakers have an agenda and a message that aligns with the event’s sponsors. They may be trying to convince people to be more proactive in their efforts to protect the environment, or they could be talking about the importance of investing in schools and community programs. They make the information tangible for the audience and help reach out to them in a unique and memorable way. The right agency company understands that political speakers are serving an important purpose, and they can help a company find a speaker that can help them reach their unique goals.
Setting the Ideal Tone
Political speakers can be used as the highlight of an event, or they can be used to set the tone. Some gatherings are best suited to a slightly humorous atmosphere, but others will require a somber tone that reaches a little deeper. Whether the political speaker is the opening act, the event’s headliner or the closing tribute, they can help the company strike the perfect tone with the audience. There are countless venues where political speakers are a smart choice, and most of them have nothing to do with elections. They can reach the audience in a unique way to make any conference, educational seminar or professional gathering more enjoyable and memorable. They’re easily recognizable, and they can help a company get their message across. When creating an event and deciding on the guest speakers and entertainment, work with top companies like PB Talent to find the ideal speakers for any gathering.
How to Find the Ideal Inspirational Speakers for Your Next Event
Posted by Cindi Davis
The right motivational speakers can take any seminar or gathering to a higher level. They can help the hosts spread a particular message, set the tone and keep guests entertained. Whether the seminar is educational or it’s a casual gathering as part of a larger event, it’s vital to work with the right speaker. The following are some tips to help coordinators and sponsors find the ideal inspirational speakers for their needs and goals.
How to Choose the Best Speaker
Finding the right inspirational speakers depends in part on knowing the audience. Most gatherings have a common goal. A group that strives to help improve the lives of others would appreciate most speakers that have a story to share about hardship, charity and making lives better. When working with a group that’s trying to reach lofty goals, the best speakers will have some experience in overcoming challenges, setting goals and reaching for their dreams. Before talking to any talent agencies, coordinators should take a moment to determine what the common interest and goals they may be working with.
Setting the Tone
The speakers will also work to set the tone in a gathering. They’re going to create a lighter mood with jokes, or bring things down to Earth again with somber stories of struggle and triumph. They may focus on politics or current events to engage the audience and keep things lively. A great talent agency can help coordinators reach their goals by pairing them with speakers that will set the desired tone and help create the right atmosphere. It’s important for coordinators to consider the desired tone when they’re reviewing possible speakers and making their selections.
Well-Known Individuals are Well-Received
Many public speakers with an inspirational message are well-known. While they may not be celebrities or movie stars, they still have their own following and are recognizable in the public eye. They include athletes and politicians, among others. Speakers don’t have to fall into this category, but a large audience with a variety of interests and opinions is easier to entertain and reach out to when they’re looking at a familiar face. The top talent agencies understand this and work with speakers who already have their own brand and regularly reach out to a large group of people.
Work With a Professional Talent Agency
PB Talent works with an incredible range of well-known speakers, including top names like Patricia Heaton, Dr. Oz, Mark Cuban and Rachel Ray. They have contracts with politicians, athletes and an incredible range of celebrities. They also have dedicated customer service professionals on staff who will work with customers to determine what their needs and goals are. Their goal is complete customer satisfaction and a successful speaking event, so they’ll work hard to ensure that all customers are matched with the right inspirational speaker for their needs.
When it’s time to plan the final details of a gathering or symposium, it’s important for coordinators to ensure that they have the right speakers on the schedule. An experienced talent agency like Pastorini-Bosby can help match clients to the ideal speakers. It’s important to know what the goals are and if there’s a certain tone that needs to be set, and the team at PB Talent will help coordinators answer all of those important questions. Planners can rest easy knowing that they’ve found the perfect speaker for their upcoming event.
