|In general, speakers for conference events are chosen because of their expertise in a given subject deemed to be of interest to the conference attendees. The conference speaker may be someone who is affiliated with the sponsoring organization and is recognized as a leader. At other times, the conference speaker may be well known in a given industry and be called upon to expound on a related subject, with an eye toward informing and educating the attendees of the event.
Often, the subject matter addressed by a conference speaker will be highly relevant to those assembled. For example, a womenís conference speaker may address issues such as overcoming bias in the workplace. A speaker for a menís conference may focus on balancing career and parenthood. Speakers at religious conferences often focus on some moral, doctrinal, or ethical issue that is currently of great interest to those assembled. In each case, the speakerís presentation will be relevant to the subject matter of the conference and be intended to motivate, enlighten and in general be of value to everyone who hears the presentation.
