A guest speaker can help set the tone for NCSD events. That’s why it’s important to find the right person.
FRANKLIN, TN, USA, April 28, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — National Cancer Survivors Day® is an annual Celebration of Life that is held on the first Sunday in June. The 2023 celebration will be held on June 4.

Here are our top tips to help find the perfect speaker for National Cancer Survivors Day® celebrations.
1. Decide on the type of speaker.
The type of speaker to choose will depend on what kind of NCSD event being hosted. Looking for a guest speaker who will make the audience laugh? Or is the event educational? Want a medical professional to share the latest in survivorship care? Or a cancer survivor who has an inspiring story to tell? Knowing what kind of speaker wanted will help narrow down the search.
2. Search the NCSD Speakers Bureau Roster for potential candidates.
The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation has put together a handy tool to help find the right speaker for NCSD events – the NCSD Speakers Bureau Roster. This online listing has booking information for nearly 250 public speakers, celebrities, cancer survivors, and medical professionals who are available to speak on topics of interest to cancer survivors.

3. Know the budget.
The cost of hiring a professional speaker can vary significantly. Though many factors may come into play, it essentially comes down to the speaker themselves. At the bottom end of the scale, fees may run as low as a few hundred dollars. On the upper end, experienced speakers who are seen as celebrities or major industry figures may have fees that are much higher.
4. Do the homework.
Review the speaker’s website and/or social media pages. Look for videos of past presentations and speeches. Also, look for testimonials or ask the speaker for their professional résumé. Reach out to a shortlist of speakers as early as possible.
5. Consider a local speaker.
To help with the budget, look for a local (or nearby) speaker so travel and accommodation fees aren’t extra. The NCSD Speakers Bureau Roster has a state-by-state listing to help find a professional speaker nearby. To unlock exclusive access to the NCSD Speakers Bureau Roster, register the Survivors Day event at ncsd.org/register.
