Ordinarily, we do not view keynote speakers as being inspirational speakers from whom we can learn a great deal. We simply view them as figures who speak about certain services, goods, or business concepts. Sound about right? Even if it does sound right, I think that it is wrong, and that it needs to change. We need to start noticing that there are great keynote speakers in the world around us, and that we can learn a whole range of skills from them. Just as we can learn things from motivational speakers, so we can learn things from the great keynote speakers. In order to learn from great keynote speakers, however, we need to do some research. I suggest a simple Google search, because this will allow you to find a whole host of great keynote speakers who you may be able to relate to. Of course, not everyone has time for this, so I thought I would highlight a great keynote speaker who I have learnt from, and who has inspired me.


The keynote speaker who I have learnt a great deal from is Aaron Balick. Aaron is most commonly known as a psychotherapist who takes his knowledge from the world of academia, and applies it to modern society. This is the first reason that he has inspired me; he has been able to apply his academic knowledge to real-life scenarios which makes it meaningful and helpful. The second reason that Aaron Balick has inspired me is because of the work he has done regarding the importance of mental health. Aaron has done much research on the way in which contemporary culture can, and is, affecting the mental wellbeing of adults and children. For me, raising awareness about mental wellbeing is essential, therefore, I am truly inspired by what Aaron has done. His ability to use his psychological knowledge, in order to better the lives of others, is exemplary. As a speaker, he is able to enhance his audience’s knowledge of psychology and the ways in which our psyches are affected by social media, content and regular life.


For me, keynote speaking is not an easy task because you are often talking about topics with which you are not always familiar. Moreover, keynote speaking requires one to be concise and clear, because you do not always have a great deal of time. It is essential, therefore, to learn from the great keynote speakers so that you too may become a great. I hope you have learnt a few things from Aaron Balick; in particular, I think his emphasis on mental wellbeing is something which we can all take away.
