Choosing a Motivational Speaker


What should you consider when choosing a motivational speaker?

1. Can the speaker inspire your audience?
Just about anyone can give your audience a pep talk that lasts until they leave the event.  A real motivational speaker connects with the audience to inspire them to make changes in their lives.

2. Do their stories connect with “real” people?
Many motivational speakers have earned their stories by dealing with extraordinary events.  But not everyone can relate to that kind of situation.  A great motivational speaker must be able to break down their transformation step by step so everyone I the audience can relate to it and be inspired to change.

3. Do They Provide Different Perceptions?
Some motivational speakers base their message on fear.  For example, if you don’t make this change you’ll be a loser.  The audience should learn that even if events beyond their control affect them, they can control certain aspects of what happened.  This change in perception will empower them to make the changes needed to overcome it.

So, what speaker is best for your event?  It may be as simple as ‘what do you want your audience members to do better’ and then match that goal with the motivational speaker who can get them there.
