What makes a great motivational keynote speakers?

Motivational speakers, also called keynote or inspirational speakers, create awareness, stimulate curiosity and tell an inspirational story. Their job is to form quick and palpable bonds with their audiences and inspire them.

Many think that motivational speakers mainly boost morale or self-confidence.  However, the best motivational speakers are alchemists. They do far more. They leave audiences with positive feelings and beliefs but also with something fresh, that can change how people feel about things or situations and so may act more positively and effectively in the future.

Philip follows in the tradition of the past 30 years of some of the greatest NLP Coaches such as Tony Robbins by working with thousands to change the way people think, learn and behave to raise their game and be more fulfilled. Philip’s significant coaching and facilitation experiences over decades is evident within his motivational keynotes.

Tips for choosing a motivational speaker

Clarify the 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.

Location & cost
Will the speaker travel to where you need them? Remember that speakers who travel 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 motivational 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.

Comes highly recommended
Ask to see a wide range of testimonials or to speak to previous sponsors or participants who highly recommend speakers
