What's the role of a motivational speaker?

Motivational speakers, also called keynote or inspirational speakers, create, stimulate & inspire people. They form quick & palpable bonds with their audiences.

There’s a somewhat general idea that motivational speakers purely boost self-confidence, for instance.  However, the best motivational speakers are alchemists. They can do far more.  They leave audiences with positive feelings & beliefs & with something fresh, that can change how people feel about, see or act in the future.

Tips for choosing a motivational speaker

Here’s some general useful information to help you find the ideal speaker for your event:

Clarify purpose & budget
Take a moment to think about, clarify & gain concensus for the purpose, learning, context of the talk & your budget. We use a coaching needs analysis which just takes a 10 minutes to help you clarify important questions. And 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 & ask them what they typically (love to) do.  Ask about their experience relative to the profile of your audience, type of event & your expectations for the event.  References & videos may help.  Most importantly agree outcomes, timings & benefits. Ask what the audience will learn, experience & feel.

Be clear about how the keynote talk is positioned within the organisation & 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 the set-up for the session such as audience numbers, room layout, use of props, mics, screens, introduction & if the session will be recorded or filmed.
