Choosing a Theme For Your Next Event


Thanks for coming! This page is #1 on the web for helping you choose a theme for your meeting. That is amazing! I created it to help the hundreds of meeting planners just like you who have hired me to be the opening or closing speaker for their event.


You may have not been looking for a speaker and the thought of hiring me to be THE energy source for your event sounds appealing. Check out my video here.


Choosing your theme's tagline is critical because it provides the centerpiece idea from which the meeting presenters will focus on. They must reinforce the key messages of the event that will be the clear call to action when everyone leaves. It is a challenge to continually come up with great meeting themes. I have compiled a list of some of the themes I have seen over the years for you. It will help you brainstorm potential options.

Chip has been speaking professionally since 1993. Since 1966 if you count being the ringmaster at our first grade circus. If being the open - ing and/or closing speaker at over 946 CONVENTIONS and working with Tony Robbins for 6 years has taught me anything it is this:


Less is more!


Most of the time Chip sees the leadership forcing the meeting planner to put too much information into one event. Try to make the breakout sessions shorter than planned. Use the room set-up recommendations Chip suggests in that document for all meeting rooms. Make the breaks longer and give the participants more opportunities to network.


Do not go more than 60 minutes without giving them the opportunity to stand up – do something! Ask them a question, have them stand and share the answer with a neighbor, do a massage and play some upbeat music, do some stretches, play a game – anything. Unless you want to lose them, do not put multiple speakers back to back to back to back to back to back. Give them time to share best practices in an effective forum. And finally:


Have a Clear Call to Action


What do you want them to do when they leave? Use a speaker like myself to tie it all together and get the participants clear on what they will do when they leave the event.


After you have selected your theme, you can creatively intertwine elements of the theme into each aspect of your meeting:


  •     Create a logo, PPT template for the presenters.
  •     Choose a color scheme.
  •     Clarify what the theme means for all presenters and what the leadership has decided to be the key messages – communicate effectively.
  •     Send out teaser invitations by mail, email, audio and video clips.
  •     Have your speaker record special video messages in advance to send out.
  •     Coordinate special events, meals, experiences tied into your theme.
  •     Look at potential teasers/gifts to be placed into the hotel rooms that can tie into your theme.
  •     Order ad specialty items that incorporate the theme - like shirts, bags, T-shirts, hats, pens, flash drives, etc.      Even better, make them a surprise when they return to their hotel room.
  •     Outfit your staff with special shirts with the meeting theme logo so they stand out.
  •     Create a follow-up program with a survey to ensure that the proper messages were received.
  •     Consider recording key messages from the presenters for Mp3 downloads or send out a CD/DVD to reinforce the messages.
