As a species, we are aware of what it takes to be good at something. For example, we are aware of what it takes to be a good student. One must be organized, prepared to revise, ready to do homework and so on and so forth. Similarly, we are aware of what it means to be a good sportsman: one must be physically fit, willing to train, dedicated, hungry to win and so on and so forth. However, I am not particularly interested in what it means to be a good student or sportsman. Rather, I am interested in the following question: what does it mean to be a good inspirational keynote speaker? Inspirational keynote speakers are interesting individuals, who have very tricky jobs. Also, there are lots of people who desire to be inspirational keynote speakers. Hence, let us explore the common traits of inspirational keynote speakers so that you can thrive and become a better inspirational keynote speaker.


First and foremost, inspirational keynote speakers must be organised. This involves working ahead of schedule so that you are prepared to talk when the day comes. One way of making sure that you are organised, is by having a planner. Most inspirational keynote speakers will have a diary or planner which they use to create a timetable for themselves. This prevents them from over-working, and also means that they are aware of when their services are required. Now, this can be done on your phone; however, most people prefer using a physical planner. Either way, to be one of the best inspirational keynote speakers, you must plan and schedule effectively so that you don’t underperform on your big day.


Secondly, inspirational keynote speakers must practice. Now, this could mean looking at yourself in the mirror and simply speaking your stuff. This method is useful in the early stages, because it allows you to perform in an unpressurised environment. However, some people prefer starting off by talking to small groups of friends or family. By using this method, you needn’t worry about being judged, and you will be able to ensure that you can maintain someone’s attention for a long period of time. Personally, I prefer talking to small groups, merely due to the added pressure of an audience. It is similar to what you will get on your big day, so you may as well get used to it as soon as you can.


Thirdly, inspirational keynote speakers love what they do. They have a genuine passion for helping others, therefore meaning that they are willing to go above and beyond. For example, they are willing to delve into industries which have hitherto been unexplored. They may also be able to create methods which have not yet been heard of. The key thing is that they are so passionate for their craft, and they use this passion to propel themselves to new levels.
