How to Choose the Right NFL Speaker for Your Event

For Americans, football is much more than a sport. It’s a way of life. Those who are truly passionate about the game know that it teaches both athletes and spectators that through hard work, anything is possible. It also conveys the importance of discipline and the value of getting back up when you’ve been knocked down, of leadership and teamwork and how anything is possible when everyone on a team is working towards a common goal.

Football players are excellent motivational speakers for these reasons. As dedicated professional athletes, they have faced adversity, pushed themselves beyond their limits and understand that success requires sacrifice.

Additionally, many of our NFL speakers have overcome challenges off the field as well. From the difficulty of balancing both a relationship and a career to the trials of parenting, finances, mental health and personal development, we can find and athlete to match the theme of your event for most any topic.

But before making your final decision, we recommend considering the following points when searching for a NFL motivational speaker for your next engagement:

The Speaker’s Background

Are you looking for a NFL speaker from a specific team or with ties to your state or community? Are you on the hunt for a football player motivational speaker who has experienced poverty to speak at your local homeless shelter fundraiser? Or an athlete that has a history of promoting the importance of education who can speak to your students?

At Sports Speakers 360, we are proud to offer the most extensive roster of NFL speakers of any sports talent booking agency. Thus, we can help you identify presenters who have the experience you are looking for— whether it’s professionally or personally.

The Speaker’s Availability

There are several factors to consider with regard to an athlete’s availability. The first is to remember that the more renowned a football motivational speaker is, the busier their schedule is likely to be. Also, a former NFL player motivational speaker will have a less demanding schedule than a player who is currently on a team. So, if you’re looking to hire one of our most recognized players, booking well in advance is key.

Another factor to be aware of is the flexibility in scheduling the date of your event. If the date of your engagement is set in stone, it may be more challenging to secure your first-choice athlete. However, if you are planning your event far enough in advance that you can opt between two or three potential dates, it will be easier for one of our NFL speakers to accommodate your schedule.

Lastly, it would be wise to contemplate how you can make your offer more appealing to your potential hire. Our NFL speakers are more likely to agree to a speaking opportunity if the price of travel, meals, and/or accommodations will be covered. Additionally, if your event benefits an organization or a particular group of people, communicating that information along with your goals may pique your chosen speaker’s interests.

The Speaker’s Strengths

It is important to remember that each NFL speaker has their own unique style and methods of presenting. Some of our current and former football player motivational speakers are great at commanding large audiences and energizing venues full of people while others prefer more intimate settings. Some are comfortable giving a keynote while others prefer a moderated interview format. Depending on your needs, we can help you select the perfect fit.

How Sports Speakers 360 Makes Hiring an NFL Speaker the Easiest Its Ever Been
