The Power of hiring a Digital Transformation Keynote Speaker on Organizations

  • Keynote Speakers are hired for Conferences, Seminars, Convention, Forum and Corporate Retreats.
  • The primary purpose is to transform mindset and the changing attitude of the audience.
  • The key message is decided by the client or jointly decided with the keynote speaker. The style of delivery is to educate, entertain and engage the core of the audience.
  • A great keynote speaker will balance between content, engagement and entertainment.
  • An experienced keynote speaker will incorporate suitable activities to reinforce learning and transformation
  • A great keynote speaker feels the energy of the audience and leads accordingly.

What’s the difference between a Digital Transformation Keynote Speaker and a Trainer or Workshop Leader?

  • Structurally, training has learning objectives and an outline. A keynote has only 1-3 central ideas.
  • A Keynote will last anywhere between 20-60 minutes. Training can be 3 hours at least.
  • There is an optimum class size for training and workshop maximum to about 25 people. A keynote address can be given to thousands of people.
  • A keynote speaker has no assistant, whereas a trainer or workshop leader has other helpers in the room
  • A keynote is more inspirational, but training or workshop is more interactive and engaging

Andrew is one of the great thinkers in business, particularly with online marketing. Since we met in early 2013, Andrew has always impressed me with his acute mind for innovative ideas, and he is always able to craft ideas for different situations. Furthermore, Andrew is an excellent speaker who is able to convey his ideas clearly and with a sprinkling of humour. In 2014, I was asked to suggest a keynote speaker to share the stage with me in Helsinki to discuss Social Media – and Andrew was the first person I recommended

“I have heard of Andrew Chow in the Conferences World, as being one of the most up to date, revolutionary and applicative Speaker, with an experience across the world, but it is only after meeting and working with him for the DigiMarCon Conferences that I saw how passionate he really is to make a difference for today’s marketers and digital professionals. Andrew’s content and delivery was energizing, fresh, effective and very up to date with the industry’s requirements. I fully recommend working with him for further marketing conferences that need a global expert “

I first met Andrew as a fellow speaker at the ICTT 2017 in India. I was immediately struck not only by his natural charisma as a speaker, but genuine warmth towards all of the attendees who had paid to attend. While his presentations were insightful and entertaining, Andrew went to great lengths to make sure that he imparted great value to everyone who sought extra time with him. Since then I have been fortunate to attend Malaysia Social Media Week 2018, which Andrew organised and Digimarcon London 2018, which he hosted. All of these experiences have solidified Andrew in my mind as an exceptional communicator focussed on improving the skills and outlooks of every person he encounters. I could not recommend Andrew highly enough as a Speaker, Event Organiser and Host.

Rob Lee (Instagram Keynote Speaker, UK)

Andrew is an individual that radiates from the crowd. I met him at a travel conference in Bangkok many years ago, one of the few Singaporeans present, and since then we have had a few coffee sessions and even spoke at the same conference in Czech Republic just this year. A confident, smart and always cheerful man who is never afraid to give you some honest much-appreciated advice. Such a joy to know him
