The best inspirational speakers will all have certain traits in common. Often, the best inspirational speakers tend to be able to connect on a personal level with their audience almost instantly. The reason for the almost instantaneous relationship is due to the background research that the best inspirational speakers will have conducted prior to their presentations. The best inspirational speakers will have researched the type of audience that they are speaking to, therefore meaning that they are able to tailor their presentations to each given group. This means that their message will not only correspond with the desires and needs of the audience, but it will also resonate in their heads because it is something which they have been searching for. This is, however, only one of the strings on the jam-packed bow of the best inspirational speakers. Let us thus explore some of the common traits of the inspirational speakers.


As well as being able to connect due to extensive research, the best inspirational speakers are able to connect with their audiences due to their impressive speaking skills. For example, they will be able to speak eloquently meaning that their message is always clear and never clouded by an artificial layer of confusion. Moreover, they will use specific linguistic devices to ensure that their message is actively absorbed by the audience. Now, this may sound somewhat complex, but I can assure you that this is not the case. It simply requires things such as repeating key phrases, asking questions to the audience and changing one’s speaking pace. These three examples are very basic skills – which everyone has the capacity for – but they are able to stimulate mental exercise in the head of an audience member. This means that the audience member is actively absorbing the information that the speaker is delivering to them. As such, the message is clearly embedded in the audience members brain. In sum, through simple linguistic devices and clever language tricks, the best inspirational speakers are able to imprint their messages into the brains of their audience members. It must be noted, however, that this requires years of practice. It also requires a clear message and one which is succinct enough to embed itself in the brain.
Inspirational speakers also have the capacity for many other skills; they are, for example, excellent story tellers or even have the ability to diffuse tension with comedy. All of these traits are what make the best motivational speakers who they are. The primary thing that separates a good speaker from the best speaker is desire. By this I mean desire for success; the best inspirational speakers have a strong desire for success and will not stop until they get it. That is what makes them so good.

Most motivational speakers, these days, have websites which advertise them and their services. This is pretty smart considering that the a large proportion of people spend their days on the internet searching for new and exciting things. The problem is, however, that most motivational speakers do not have new and exciting things on their websites. Instead, they seem to be bland, and uninteresting. To avoid being in this state of boringness, there are a few things that motivational speakers ought to include on their websites. These things will allow them to excel and be described as “trendy”. I personally believe that the best way to succeed is by having good social and internet presence, so by having the best possible website you are improving your chances of success.


The first thing that motivational speakers ought to include on their websites is videos. Now, these do not need to be particularly lengthy videos, rather they just need to be videos which promote what it is you do, and how you do it. Most internet consumers want to know – as soon as possible – what a person does and how they do it, so if you can provide them with this information via the medium of video, you are more likely to satisfy their needs and raise your popularity. Some people tend to post the actual videos on their website, whereas others have links to their YouTube channels. Either way, ensure that it is highly visible to anyone who may want to see it, because the last thing you want is for somebody to miss out on your videos all together. That would, well and truly, be a disaster.


The second thing that motivational speakers ought to include on their website is precise content which presented in a creative way. This means that you ought to avoid having long paragraphs of text and instead use key quotations or short bullet points. This way, you can avoid boring your reading and you can also easily get your message across. As for creativity, this can be the style of your website i.e. the way you transition from page to another or the colour scheme used. For a lot of consumers, they want to enjoy their experience online so if you can provide them with something truly enjoyable you will be heading in the right direction.


In conclusion, a website is a vital thing for a motivational speaker. For all you motivational speakers out there, use your website smartly: promote yourself, and keep it cool.

Lots of people will attend motivational seminars and be somewhat passive in their observations. They may listen to seminars and presentations, go to a few panel talks and then leave; however, in doing so they are not making the most of their experience. Just as the motivational speakers themselves prepare, anyone who goes to motivational seminars ought to prepare themselves for the experience – this will allow them to maximise the amount of things they learn. Moreover, it is vital to be passive when attending motivational seminars because it will allow you to make the most for them. Merely going to a motivational seminar and being passive will leave you feeling somewhat underwhelmed and will most certainly leave your uninformed. I would, therefore, like to share my two top tips for what to do if you are going to motivational seminars.


My first tip for going to motivational seminars is to prepare before you go. Sounds simple enough, right? By preparing, you allow yourself the best chance to know who you are going to be listening to. Moreover, you will have a general gist of what their messages are which will allow you to strengthen your understanding when you are actually at the event. Furthermore, by being more prepared than others beforehand, you can already have questions which you may want answered by the speakers themselves. Essentially, I am preparing you so that you can get the most information from the talks that you hear. I, like many of you, have been passive through many seminars and have not learned a lot from them. When I was active, however, I learned a great deal more and was all the more satisfied when I left the event. The simplest way to prepare yourself is to browse through the speakers list and visit a few of their websites so you can have a broad insight into what it is that they specialize in.


My second piece of advice is to be active, not passive. What I mean by this is when you are listening to a seminar speaker, actively mull over what they are saying to you, rather than passively accepting what they say as truth. By thinking actively, you allow yourself to take on the information which you find useful, and forget the things that you find irrelevant. Moreover, if you were to passively accept everything, you are more likely to be disappointed when certain methods fail for you. By actively thinking, therefore, you avoid disappointment.


I hope that these tips will be useful for all of you who will be going to any motivational seminars. Most of all, however, make sure you enjoy the experience!

A corporate speaker is one who delivers seminars and speeches at corporate events. A motivational speaker is one whose job it is to inspire and motivate people into living their best life and (or) change their life for the better. At first glance, it may seem that these two types of people will only have one thing in common – they both need to speak. However, the person who thinks this is mistaken, for they have not acknowledged the fact that both corporate and motivational speakers must organise, prepare and deliver presentations. The professions, therefore, do not just require speaking, but years of research, practice, linguistic development and so on and so forth. I would just like to highlight some of the common traits that both corporate and motivational speakers may share.


First of all, both corporate speakers and motivational speakers are performers. What I mean by this is that they must perform – via spoke word – to an audience in the hope that they can get their message across in the best and most effective way. This does not, however, require music, dance or any such performance art. Rather, it requires immense persuasive skills and a knowledge of the good or service, or message, that they are trying to promote. The best way of ensuring that this box is ticked is by meeting with the company owners or event organizers so that you can get an idea  of just who or what you will be talking to or about. This will allow you to personalize your talk in whichever way you feel best. The analogy I would use is an exam: a lack of preparation of material will make you feel out of place when you enter an exam hall. The same applies for a speaker: a lack of preparation i.e. not knowing who or what you are talking to and about will leave you in a tricky position.


Secondly, corporate and motivational speakers must both be able to sustain the attention of a crowd. This can come through knowing your audience, however the primary way of assuring this is by making sure that you have top quality content and lots of it. Personal anecdotes, comedic stories and regular summaries will ensure that you maintain your audience’s attention, whilst also allowing you an easy way to get your message across.


I hope that you can now see – if you could not already – the clear links between being a motivational speaker and being a corporate speaker.

Corporate speakers are often highly sought-after individuals due to their ability to sell, inspire, motivate and entertain large audiences. Their infectious personalities make them excellent speakers because they are able to relate to audiences so easily. This is not, however, an innate skill (or at least I do not think it is!). Rather, it is the result of years of practice and market research; that is why corporate speakers are so good. It goes back to that age-old saying: to be the best, you have got to act like the best. This is certainly a common trait amongst corporate speakers, because they are truly hardworking, dedicated and amusing individuals who have an exceptional ability to entertain a crowd. How is it, though, that they are so good? What are the traits of the best corporate speakers? I think it is rather simple, and I would like to explore it in this post.


The first common trait amongst corporate speakers is a genuine passion for their field. Without this passion, the speakers would not half as good as they are. They have a genuine thirst for knowledge of the corporate world which makes them seem entirely in love with the idea of anything corporate. This is reflected in their presentations because they are able to present with enthusiasm, charisma and a genuine passion. This, in turn, will have a profound effect on any audience members because they will feel a strong connection with a speaker who is engaging and entertaining. As a result, they are highly likely to retain the information they have given, therefore making the presentation a success. Such easy success can stem from a simple thing – passion.


As well as being passionate, the best corporate speakers must be highly organised and time-aware. Being organised will allow them to produce concise and precise presentations which are tailored to all the needs, worries and questions that a consumer may have. Time-awareness means that they will never be running out of sync with their schedule, which allows them to be efficient and proactive. Of course, organisational skills are vital in any discipline; however, they are essential in the realm of corporate speakers because it can be such a demanding profession.


In summary, the legend of corporate speakers is an interesting tale which I recommend exploring. A rewarding, challenging and stimulating profession such as corporate speaking should be considered by one and all.

Conference speaking is an extremely rewarding profession because it is a proven way to enhance your brand profile. Not only can being a conference speaker improve your brand profile, but it can also make you more attractive to high-paying clients. If that is not enough motivation to be a conference speaker, then you may want to know that you also have the chance to inspire people through the message you deliver in a panel conversation or through your keynote speech, for example. How is it, then, that one can become a great conference speaker? Is it possible to be a great if you start from scratch? I believe that it is possible, however it requires lots of research and dedication to the profession. I believe, however, that this is an attainable goal and that everyone ought to give it a go. Let me now give you some tips and tricks which will boost your presence as a conference speaker.


The primary way of being the best possible conference speaker is to personalize your speeches and talks. It is vital that you know the general vibe of the conference, the audience that you will be talking to and your overall message. If you know these things, you are giving yourself the best possible chance to succeed and this is what we want. WIthout this knowledge, you are, essentially, hindering your own success. I would highly recommend, therefore, researching who it is you are speaking for and who you are speaking to. Asking questions to the organizers is never a bad idea because it creates clarity which will allow you to deliver the best possible speech. To be a conference speaker, and a successful one at that, it is essential to be prepared and organised so that you can tick all of your necessary boxes.


My second tip is to ensure that you know how the day is going to function. Whether you prepare a lot or very little just before the speech, it is essential to know when you are going to be presenting so that you can get you can get into the right mental headspace. This will allow you clarity and calmness when you do speak, so it means that you are giving yourself the best possible chance of succeeding. A simple tip, but a vital one should you wish to avoid confusion and chaos.


In sum, I would recommend being as prepared as possible when you are a conference speaker. Knowing the finest of details will help you massively, so do not be afraid to ask about them.

A speakers bureau is an organisation who are involved with providing speakers for clients for events, conferences or charity functions. The types of speakers can include motivational speakers, keynote speakers, conference speakers and so on. Speakers bureaus are often involved with providing clients with the correct style of speaker that they may need for an event. Essentially, the bureau acts as a “middle man” between a client and a speaker. The London Speaker Bureau is a group who act as a global resource and provide clients with keynote speakers, executive learning masterclasses and boardroom advisers. Let us now explore the work that the London Speaker Bureau does for its clients.


The London Speaker Bureau is a special organization because it offers speakers from a vast array of categories. The London Speaker Bureau offers speakers for the following categories: Business and Management, Future and Technology, Government and Politics, Leadership and Motivation and many more. Despite this only being a small portion of the categories that they cover, I think it is is impressive to see a group which offers such a wide array of speakers to cover so many different topics. As speakers bureaus go, The London Speaker Bureau is certainly ranked as one of the best due to its ability to provide speakers for almost any event. I would just like to explore some of the work that their speakers do to show you just how good they are.


The London Speaker Bureau offer services from Alain Robert – the world’s leading free climber who has climbed over 70 skyscrapers without ropes! Known to many as “the French Spiderman”, this man is a renowned speaker on the topic of motivation. I am sure you can imagine the motivation and courage required to ascend a building such as The Burj Khalifa, so to have Alain Robert as a resource to explain his journey is quite phenomenal. I, for one, am truly inspired by his work and have been enthralled by the stories of his climbs up some of the world’s largest buildings. The fact that The London Speaker Bureau offers his service is quite remarkable and reflects just how high calibre their speakers are.


In sum, the London Speaker Bureau is a world-class company who offer the services of many inspirational characters who have led some extraordinary lives. They are, in my opinion, a truly excellent corporation due to the fact that they have so many speakers who are able to cover so many different topics.

In a world which is pushing for equal rights between men and women, it is vital to acknowledge the achievements of female motivational speakers because they are truly phenomenal. Many female motivational speakers go unnoticed, but I believe that this is a great evil because it deprives the world of some great speakers with even greater messages. Female motivational speakers are able to inspire millions of people, in particular young generations of women who are aspiring business women, entrepreneurs and so on. I feel extremely lucky to have experienced some of the great work  of female motivational speakers because they have taught me so much about resilience, being motivated and working extremely hard. My favourite female motivational speakers would have to be: Molly Fletcher and Mel Robbins. Both women are exceptional speakers who are giants in the realm of motivational speaking. Let me now explain what these two women have taught me.


Molly Fletcher is one of the most famous female motivational speakers because of her ability to produce engaging and awe-inspiring content. Molly Fletcher has produced many keynote and motivational speeches pertaining to leadership, business development and peak performance. Molly shares a very personal message about what she has learned as a sports agent via a 5-step process which she believes will many people to unleash their full potential and achieve greatness. One of Molly’s mottos is that we must be “fearless at work”. Being comfortable does not allow you to achieve greatness, therefore you must be fearless and step outside of your comfort zone in order to experience new things and move closer to success. Molly has inspired me to work hard and step out of my comfort zone which I have truly found to be invaluable advice.


Mel Robbins is a superb speaker who uses a similar 5-step plan to that of Molly Fletcher. Mel is an excellent speaker because she is super relatable. She is able to show empathy towards her audiences which allows her to create a personal relationship from the beginning of a presentation. Mel Robbins has a very simple message: you need to know how to push yourself. The power of a “push moment” is so intense that it can have profound effects on the way in which you live your life. For this reason, Mollie is a truly inspiring speaker.


As female motivational speakers go, these two are legends. I would highly recommend listening to them speak so that you can be inspired by their greatness.

When I think of great motivational speakers I think of the following people: Eric Thomas, Debra Searle, Martin Luther King Jr and many many more. These great motivational speakers have inspired millions of people globally and brought about great amounts of social, mental and political change. Being a great, however, does not always require you to inspire millions, for you could have a life changing effect on a small proportion of people and still be considered as one the great motivational speakers of all time. My question is: How does one go about becoming one of the great motivational speakers? Is it possible for anyone to do it? To answer the latter question I would say it is possible; all it takes is dedication, charisma and resilience. I have studied many a motivational speaker and learned a multitude of lesson from them. Not only have I learned how to lead a better life, but I have also learned how to be a better motivational speaker. Let me share some of the tips and tricks that I have picked up.


The first thing that I have learned from many of the great motivational speakers is how to be charismatic. A lot of great motivational speakers have excellent stage presence which can well and truly inspire and entertain a crowd. However, this is not always such an easy thing for people to do, because for some people such excitedness does not come naturally. These individuals, however, deliver charismatic presentations through their tone of voice and subtle use of linguistic devices. Some of the greatest motivational speakers are able to have subtle changes in the tone of their voice to emphasise certain lines. Moreover, they are able to pause at just the right time to allow their audience time to reflect and think actively. One of my favourite speakers is Martin Luther King Jr because his tone and language was particularly inspiring for me.


The second thing that I have learned is that to be considered as a great motivational speaker you need a clear and consistent message. You musn’t waver from this message because this message is what will bring you success and allow you to help others. This message should be precise and clear, but, above all, this message should reflect the steps you have taken to succeed in life.


In summary, these two tips of mine should help anyone on their path to becoming motivational speakers. I highly recommend watching videos of some of the greats just so that you can get a feel of what they do that is so awe-inspiring.

Motivational speakers have influenced my life in a multitude of ways. They have, for example, taught me how to set realistic goals so that I can enjoy success in all that I do. Moreover, they have taught me to chase my dreams and work hard to achieve them. I owe a lot to motivational speakers, in particular to some black motivational speakers who have had profound effects on the way in which I conduct myself. The following black motivational speakers are ones who I have really enjoyed listening to: Iyanla Vanzant and Daymond John. These two black motivational speakers reign supreme as two of the leading figures in the world of motivational speaking. Let me now explain the reasons that I find these two black motivational speakers so good.


Daymond John is one of the most successful entrepreneurs I have come across. As well as being an entrepreneur, he is a critically acclaimed author, television personality and (of course) black motivational speaker. His message is very clear and easy to understand – in order to be successful, you must work extremely hard and persevere even when it does not feel like you should. By telling his “rags-to-riches” story, Daymond is able to inspire and teach many potential entrepreneurs; his charismatic and entertaining style of speaking is easily accessible and truly does make you want to work as hard as you possibly can. For more information on the work of Daymond John, I would recommend visiting his website: https://daymondjohn.com/ – it is truly worth visiting if you are interested in just what Daymond does and has done on his journey to success.


Iyanla Vanzant is an incredible woman – it is that simple. Throughout her career she has done many wonderful things – she has, for example spent time as an inspirational speaker, author, lawyer, television personality and life coach. This list of accomplishments is not even the full thing! She too has not had an easy life; however, she is dedicated to facilitating the growth and development of the human consciousness. She is a fiery and outspoken individual who is delivers a message which is orientated around love, forgiveness and living one’s best life. She is truly inspiring, and should you wish to find out more you could research her show “Iyanla: Fix My Life”.


These are just two examples of black motivational speakers who have been successful. They are embodiments of hard-working and resilient individuals who have achieved greatness through years of dedication.
