What does a Motivational Speaker do?
The ultimate goal I have as a motivational speaker is to change people profoundly on an emotional and/or mental level, and to help them make some kind of professional or personal change in their lives and within themselves. People naturally tend to focus on all their problems but as a motivational speaker I help an audience to focus on their opportunities instead, by using personal development/long term change strategies to inspire and motivate.
As a motivational speaker I relate many of my own personal experiences to an audience, which means I often times use my up-bringing, personal testimony and background to inspire others. Not everyone evaluates their significant life experiences to determine if those experiences could be helpful to others but I am constantly reflecting on my own life to see what information would be helpful to my audience or clients. I’ve spoken at a variety of venues like schools, company boardrooms, community centres, and conferences.
Here are my areas of expertise:
Personal Development –
This is the type of speaker that is most commonly thought of when I say that I am a “motivational speaker”. I inspire and guide listeners to find purpose and meaning in their life. I give talks on motivation, inspiration, or overcoming adversity, which in turn helps people to take action and see the world or their situation from a new perspective.
As a business speaker I provide encouragement and guidance to business teams at varying levels, from sales people to executive directors. Because I have experience in business I am able to share my own story of success (and failure). I love to cultivate enthusiasm, help teams develop a common purpose, and inspire them to improve their work.
Youth Mentor –
The goal of a youth mentor is to give kids some positive guidance and a sense of direction in their formative years. I hope to inspire young people to lead healthy, ambitious lives, which may include topics like taking school seriously, finding their calling in life, studying hard, and learning how to interact with others in a healthy way. I’ve spoken to young people at schools, churches, community centres, and a variety of other venues.
As a community speaker I give motivational talks about important social and community issues. My goal is to educate the public and give them the power to take positive action, or they may give a speech that rallies people together for a good cause.
