Entrepreneurship is fast-growing with many young people preferring to start their own ventures instead of working for someone else. Many people want to be entrepreneurs but either don’t know what to do or the prospects scare them. What they need is a spark to kindle their interest and help them pursue it.

An entrepreneurship motivational speaker can help educate people about entrepreneurship. With their knowledge of entrepreneurship, these speakers can spread knowledge about entrepreneurship. They can also act as mentors for budding entrepreneurs. If you are planning an event on entrepreneurship, then hiring a business & entrepreneurship speaker is a great idea.

Who are entrepreneurship speakers?

An entrepreneurship speaker is someone with experience in running an entrepreneurship and helping people to be entrepreneurs. With their experience in running a business, they would be able to add value to budding entrepreneurs. Apart from conducting talks on entrepreneurs, they also serve as startup speakers.

A startup speaker not only educates those who want to be entrepreneurs, but also guides them. They serve as mentors who help and support entrepreneurs through the different stages of entrepreneurship. Their primary task is to inform and educate people about entrepreneurship.

What do entrepreneurship speakers talk about?

An entrepreneurship speaker would talk about all topics related to planning, setting up a venture, and running it successfully. Apart from educating the audience, they can also conduct a program that offers mentorship to those who want to get started. Depending on the type of event you are planning, you can decide the topic. Here are some ideas on different topics to cover in your entrepreneurship event.

1) Entrepreneurship basics

Entrepreneurship 101 can be a basic talk about starting a business. Such a talk is perfect for young people including school and college students. It can also include those who have just started working. All such people would know about entrepreneurship, but would not have sufficient information.

Such a basic talk would cover all about entrepreneurship and would serve as a compact educational program on entrepreneurship. A key feature is that it would not be a theoretical session would but be practical. The speaker would be an entrepreneur and would share their personal experiences during the talk. Such a talk would provide complete information on entrepreneurship.

2) Motivating entrepreneurs

When the audience has people who wish to be entrepreneurs, the speaker needs to motivate this. The speaker can do this by first highlighting the benefits of becoming an entrepreneur. It is important for the speaker to share their personal experience and the advantages they experienced when they became an entrepreneur.

Similarly, examples of other entrepreneurs can be used to inspire the participants. The focus of the talk would be to motivate participants to take the first step. Once they know the benefits of becoming an entrepreneur, they also must know the challenges. The speaker must then explain how these challenges can be overcome using their own story.

Such a motivational talk will make the audience understand that entrepreneurship is not rocket science. They will understand that anyone with an idea or product and determination can become a successful entrepreneur. A good motivational speaker will ensure that the participants take the first step on their journey to becoming an entrepreneur.

3) Mentorship 

A mentorship program would have a speaker mentoring or coaching participants as they begin their entrepreneurship journey. It would not be a talk comprising a single session, but would have multiple session. The speaker who becomes the mentor would lead the participants and guide them throughout their entrepreneurship journey.

The sessions can be group session or one-to-one session or a combination of both. The mentorship would include:

  • Reviewing the business idea or model.
  • Helping participants do a market study.
  • Equipping participants with all skills needed to be an entrepreneur. 
  • Making participants understand the importance of creativity and innovation. 
  • Technical and business related advice.
  • Sharing experiences at different stages with advice on how to meet challenges.

Their talk can have personal anecdotes where they narrate their success stories, the challenges they faced, and how they overcame obstacles.

  5. Lastly, look for a speaker who adds humour and brings in emotion in their speeches. Such an approach to public speaking helps to make the talk successful. A speech that brings in different elements of emotions enlivens the talk. It helps the talk standout, so people remember it for long.

You can keep the above guidelines in mind when you book entrepreneurship speakers for your event. Find the best speaker so your audience can enjoy an inspirational talk that tells them all about entrepreneurship.
