What's a great motivational speaker?
Motivational speakers, also called keynote or inspirational speakers, create, stimulate and inspire people. Their job is to form quick and palpable bonds with their audiences and inspire them.
Many think that motivational speakers purely boost morale or self-confidence, for instance. However, the best motivational speakers are alchemists. They do far more. They leave audiences with positive feelings and beliefs and with something fresh, that can change how people feel about things, see or act in the future.

Tips for choosing a motivational speaker
Useful information for finding the ideal speaker for your event:
Clarify purpose and budget
It may sound obvious, but it’s worth taking a moment to think about, clarify and gain consensus for the purpose, learning, the context of the talk and your budget. We use a needs analysis process that takes just a few minutes to clarify your needs. We don’t charge for this service. Simply enquire here.
Assess the fit
What’s the right mix for your audience – educational, inspirational, etc? Talk to the speaker directly and ask them what they typically (love to) do. Ask about their experience relative to the profile of your audience, type of event and your expectations for the event. References and videos may help. Most importantly agree on outcomes, timings, and benefits. Ask what the audience will learn, experience and feel.
Be clear about how the keynote talk is positioned within the organisation and how the speaker should blend within the event.
Will the speaker travel to where you need them? Remember that a motivational speaker who travels to and from your event will need to be paid for travel time, fares & potentially accommodation. It may be cost-effective to consider running multiple or longer training sessions if you hire a speaker who is not local & may offer various options.
Logistics & timings
Agree with the speaker on the set-up for the session such as audience numbers, room layout, use of props, mics, screens, introduction, and if the session will be recorded or filmed.
