Conference and Meeting Theme Ideas

As the leading speakers bureau, people come to us when they want to tie together their event themes with an engaging keynote speaker. For this reason, we don’t only specialize in pairing events with the perfect keynote speaker, but we also know what themes and topics are the most appealing for your audiences. Surveying the events we provided keynote speakers for within the last year, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite hot topics for your upcoming events. 


Leading through Adversity

This theme seems to apply to everyone in the year 2020. It’s safe to say any industry would benefit from attending an event where the focus is leading through adversity. Whether your keynote speeches include crisis management or a lesson in emotional intelligence for leaders, there’s something there for everyone. 


Diversity, Inclusion, & Allyship

With this current moment in American history where racial inequalities are being exposed, businesses are turning to experts in diversity and inclusion to help them turn a page and explore their role in this new, more equitable landscape. This topic is wide enough to address everything from discovering personal biases to microaggressions in the workplace to building new processes that are more inclusive. 


Accountability & Betting on Yourself

In times of uncertainty allow people to believe in themselves. By creating personal accountability in a time of great distance and freedom your team can build strong, lasting trust and reliance. While this is crucial for remote work, it also creates more cohesive teams who can fall back on each other in times of need. 


Habit Building

Habit Building puts the power back into the hands of your audience. Giving them methods and action items that allow the individual to change their life, one small tweak at a time, is an empowering way to engage people in any industry. 


Building World-Class Teams

In the last 3 months, your team has only seen each other through a computer screen. Unfortunately, your business isn’t on hold until everyone can return to their offices. So you’ll need to create a culture that persists through virtual conferencing and can withstand any distance. 


Emotional Intelligence & Permission to Feel

This encompasses stress management, understanding your emotions and stress, and then controlling them. Being the calm person in the boat will make or break your career in times of difficulty. Acknowledging your feelings and working through them may be the key to staying level headed. 



Give your audience a tutorial on how to bounce back better than ever. Whether you listen to real-life stories of resilience like Molly Bloom’s keynote speech or employ US military techniques for never giving up like keynote speaker and retired brigadier general Thomas Kolditz shares, your audience will be inspired to continue giving you their best effort.
