Disrupt the Keynote at The Sweeney Agency Speakers Bureau

Over the last year, we’ve worked with organizations around the world on virtual events and have learned a few things in the process about how to make the most out of your events.

Virtual Events have released the keynote from the stage, presenting awesome opportunities for increased engagement, more personalized content, and better reach.  

Through extensive conversations with our clients, we’ve come up with 3 Ways to Disrupt the Keynote to help you drive engagement, spur innovation, and ignite your teams.

Hybrid Events

In September, our speaker on Geopolitics, Dr. George Friedman, presented a keynote speech at The World Knowledge Forum in Seoul alongside Theresa May, Jack Ma & Ban-Ki Moon. 

Normally a live event, the WKF shifted to a hybrid event, comprising live and virtual components to offer their in-person and virtual attendees a comprehensive, impact-driven agenda of global leaders.

The feedback to the dramatic shift was incredibly positive, and allowed both speakers and attendees the opportunity to participate, regardless of their location.

With widespread travel presenting an issue for the near future, hybrid events present an opportunity to combine the best of live events with the facility and engagement of virtual events, reaching clients and attendees across the country.


Looking for ways to create an awesome hybrid event? Let us help.
