When you hire a motivational speaker for the first time, it is always stressful. The reason for this stress is because you want your motivational speaker to be perfect. You want them to give off the right vibe, and spread your message in an appropriate and effective manner. Essentially, you want them to light up your event or presentation so that it can go from being good to being extraordinary. There are a few things that each business owner or event holder should know before they hire a motivational speaker. Knowledge of these things will make choosing a motivational speaker so much easier. Let us have a look at the key things that each and every person should know before they hire a motivational speaker so that we can remove the pre-hire angst that most people have.

 

The first thing that any business person or events company should know before they hire a motivational speaker is the speaker’s approach. By this, I mean that they should know the way in which the speaker delivers a message to an audience. This information is important because it can the speaker’s approach can affect your whole event. You want to have, therefore, a speaker who has the ability to match the atmosphere that you are trying to create. If you want a fun and creative environment, for example, you may opt for a loud, charismatic and comedic speaker who has the ability to transmit a message in the way that you want it to be transmitted. You may ask: how is it possible to know all of this information? Well, it is rather easy to visit the website of a speakers bureau which often offers a short description of a speaker. Similarly, if you have a specific speaker in mind, you could always visit their own site as they will have a better description, and may even have videos which highlight their approach in a clear manner.

 

The second thing that you must know before you hire a motivational speaker is their costs. It may sound simple, but some speakers will charge a lot more than others simply due to a reputation that they may have built up. It is important, therefore, to do adequate research will allows you to pick a speaker who is within your price range, but can still do the job that you want them to do. Similarly, you must know the demands of the speaker. They may request certain things or certain information for their presentation so you must be aware of these things so that you can meet their demands.

 

My general advice for hiring a speaker is to make sure you know them; know their demands, their approach and their price. By knowing this information, you are giving yourself the best chance of putting on a good show.

The age-old question is still asked on a daily basis: what does it take to be a motivational speaker? To me, this is a difficult question to answer for the simple reason that each and every motivational speaker is different. Answering the question of what it takes to be a motivational speaker, therefore, could have a multitude of answers. The common factors among motivational speakers, however, are apparent. Most motivational speakers will take a slightly different approach when it comes to speaking – for example, some speakers may be more charismatic than others – but there are underlying things that could signify what it means to be a motivational speaker. Let me hence explore these underlying characteristics of motivational speakers in order to answer the question: what does it take to be a motivational speaker?

 

The first underlying characteristic of a motivational speaker is that they are always self-aware. Now, this is a term that gets used quite a lot, but in an undefined manner. By self-aware, I mean that they are aware of their strengths and weaknesses. They are able, therefore, to use their strengths to get an audience on board. They can also work on their weaknesses so that they can develop them in order to earn themselves future clout. Self-awareness also entails that they are aware of what it is that they are doing; they know their audience, they know their message and they know their goal. It is essential to be self-aware as a motivational speaker because it allows you to always stay one step ahead of your audience, therefore meaning that they are actively absorbing your information.

 

To be a motivational speaker, one must also be extremely knowledgeable. Not only must one be knowledgeable about one’s area of expertise, but one must also be knowledgeable about the audience to which one is presenting. This will allow one to tailor a presentation which is suitable for a certain demographic, thereby allowing an audience to relate to the message of the speaker. Knowledge of a specific topic is vital for the success of a motivational speaker, therefore to be a good motivational speaker one must conduct lots of research in order to discover what it is that society needs. Only then will one be able to find a way of helping society grow. I know it is a cliche, but knowledge is power; this is particularly important to understand when trying to be a motivational speaker.

 

In conclusion, I hope you are aware of what it takes to be a motivational speaker. It is a tricky art to learn, but it is always rewarding and allows you to experience a wide range of things, therefore making it an exciting prospect.

The top business speakers around the world share many characteristics with each other. There is, therefore, almost a formula for success when it comes to business speaking. One would merely need to follow the examples which given by the world’s top business speakers. I, for one, believe that these traits of the top business speakers are shared among many forms of speakers; be they motivational speakers, or comedians, they will all share the following traits. These are also traits that the each and every person should aspire to have, for they can have a positive impact on the life of an individual. They may, for example, make one view things in a more positive light. They may also allow one to be more outgoing and adventurous, thus allowing one to appreciate the wide variety of things that life has to offer. In summary, we can learn a lot of things from the top business speakers, and these things can help us in our day-to-day life. Let us have a look at some of the key traits of the top business speakers.

 

The first thing that all of the top business speakers exhibit is confidence. Now, this confidence can come in many forms, but most commonly it is shown in the form of confidence in oneself, and confidence in a product. By being confident, the top business speakers give themselves the best chance of getting their audience on board meaning that they are likely to retain more information that a speaker may feed them with. The speaker will also be able to lighten the atmosphere and create a genuinely good vibe. This skill of confidence is needed in all walks of life since it allows us to be more outgoing, creative and innovative. As such, we move closer to unlocking our full potential by merely changing our outlook on things and by having more self-belief.

 

Secondly, the top business speakers are optimistic. They make consumers or sellers feel happy with the good or service they are faced with, therefore meaning that they are far more likely to increase demand or supply. With optimism, however, can come over-optimism. The top business speakers, however, have the perfect balance between optimism and realism, thereby allowing them to show their enthusiasm for a product, whilst remaining rational and logical in their business decision making.

 

In sum, the top business speakers are confident in themselves, optimistic and realistic. They are, also, virtuous individuals with the ability to inspire and help the populous succeed in their business goals.

As human beings, we have the capacity to speak. Most people will also be able to express themselves or deliver a message verbally. However, in order to be one of the top speakers in the world, you’ll need more than that. The top speakers in the world can inspire people with stories of their own experience. Their speeches will capture the crowd’s attention within minutes. If you think you want to be, or can be, one of the top speakers in the world, take a look at the following examples.

 

One of the top speakers in the world is Nick Vujicic. He lives an extraordinary life. He was born with Tetra-Amelia syndrome, a very rare illness which meant he was born without four limbs. Despite his disability, he has been travelling around the world and speaking to people. He inspires his audience by sharing the difficulties that he has been facing throughout his life. The message he tries to deliver is clear; if a person without four limbs can type 43 words a minute on a computer, nothing is impossible. His speeches are not only inspirational and motivating but also emotional. If you go on Youtube and watch some of his speeches, you will easily find shots of people sobbing in the crowd. To me, these shots show the reason why he is one of the top speakers in the world: because he can touch the audience.

 

Another good example is Barack Obama. The former president’s successful political career actually began with a speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. Similar to Nick Vujicic, he loved to share his life experience with his audience. Back in 2004, the audience, including some famous politicians such as Joe Biden and John Kerry, was stimulated by his speech about the challenges he had faced and his vision and dream for the future. This very speech made him famous within the party. He was eventually nominated to run for president in 2008 and the rest is history. He is one of the top speakers in the world not only because he touches the crowd but because he can also make his point clearly using simple and concise language (for example his speech on ‘Change’ during his election campaign).

 

Do you still believe that you have what it takes to become one of the top speakers in the world? If the answer is yes, you will need lots of training and courage to move you one step closer to success.

Different occasions require different types of speakers. A good local motivational speaker has to connect with local interests, in order to inspire the audience. In order to motivate the audience, a local motivational speaker must understand what their daily life is like and what they want the most. This is different from speaking at a national or even international conference and it requires good research and preparation.

 

At the local level, a local motivational speaker is less likely to motivate the crowd by using stories of famous people in the world or the experience of a successful businessman working in a transnational cooperation. Yes, the audience will certainly understand your message and they may even be familiar with the stories that you are telling them. However, these stories will not touch them. For the local audience, this is too unrelated and unreal. A good local motivational speaker must therefore try to understand local life, and be aware of what represents a good life in that certain area. In order to do so, a good local motivational speaker will do lots of research and perhaps even talk to the locals before he make his speech.

 

An example of a good local motivational speaker is President Trump. Regardless of your personal political view, one must agree that he is very good at motivating a crowd and turning them into loyal supporters. Not only can he address his audience at the national or international level, he is also a good local motivational speaker. During his 2016 election campaign, he went to many local areas in the so called ‘Blue Wall States’, otherwise known as the ‘Rusted Belt’. The local population have been suffering due to the relocation of many industries. Instead of  speaking about national interests such as equality for women and LGBT or relationships with Russia or China, Trump did what a good local motivational speaker would do — talk about the local communities. He didn’t bother using some stories of famous entrepreneurs to motivate the crowd. Instead, he talked about how the audience can revive their local economy by supporting his protectionist policies and how he will bring the factories back. He knew what the local audience wanted and he understood the difficulties they were facing. He then created a hope and a goal for the local people, which motivated them to campaign and vote for him. Trump was successful because he engaged with the locals and spoke from a local point of view. This evidently shows the importance of understanding the local areas and audience, who you are speaking to.

 

To sum up, being a good motivational speaker in your company, or at an international business conference, will not automatically make you a good local motivational speaker. One must train, prepare and adapt to different situations.

I believe that keynote speakers are exceptional individuals with a tremendous gift; they have the ability to capture the essence of a message and share it in a concise, yet precise, manner. Not only are they concise and precise, but they also have the ability to inspire and do so in an enjoyable, comedic and charismatic manner. The fact that many keynote speakers possess these skills, and are able to exhibit them so well, makes the job of creating a list of keynote speakers very tricky. I would, therefore, only like to highlight two of my favourite keynote speakers. The reason that I would like to highlight the work of these two individuals is because they are very precise and clear with their delivery. Moreover, their approaches make them very accessible to a wide variety of audience members. This means that their message will be firmly imprinted in the minds of the individuals to whom they are presenting. They are, put simply, legendary speakers and that is the reason why they have made it onto my short list of keynote speakers.

 

The first keynote speaker that I would like to speak about is Alistair Darling. Alistair is well known as a labour politician and ex-Chancellor during the turbulent times that were the financial crisis. He is a prominent member within the world of politics and is able to present his wealth of knowledge on the topics of Brexit, the economic climate and the financial crisis. As Chancellor, Alistair is lauded for preventing the global recession from leading us into an almost inescapable abyss. The primary reason that Alastair is one of my favourite keynote speakers is due to his ability to make light of tumultuous times; in doing so, he is able to show his audiences just how important it is to remain rational in times of difficulty. Moreover, his ability to draw on past experiences means that he is able to give personal advice to audiences which they are far more likely to draw information.

 

Another of my favourite keynote speakers is Anders Indset. Anders is labelled as one of the biggest business philosophers due to his ability to provide a creative and informative perspective on “the art of thinking”. Anders is a particularly apt thinker and keynote speaker, since he is able to bring use the works of past philosophers in relation to the modern world which is dominated by technology. By doing so, he is able to show business leaders how to overcome issues in the modern world via methods of old; this is particularly difficult to do considering how convoluted philosophical theses can be. For these reasons, and for his sheer brilliance as a business philosopher, Anders Indset has a place on my list of keynote speakers.

 

Keynote speakers are very important individuals (as we have established). To be one, one must train for years and be brave, outgoing and focused. To get in touch or for more information on Bianca Miller-Cole please email bookings@biancamiller.uk , call 02086679519 or visit www.biancamiller.uk
