I was an inspirational speaker for United Airlines Leadership Retreat last month. I am a Star Alliance Elite Member, so I fly this airline a lot; I figure I have given them enough of my money, it's time I get some of their's!
A great motivational speech can literally change lives. Think of Martin Luther King and Napoleon Hill - even Adolf Hitler (who changed lives for the worse, but still).
I was a motivational speaker for a Nurses' Week event last year. After the motivational speeches, the CEO took me on a tour of the hospital, where I witnessed managers hosting "mini meetings" in several different areas.

I spoke with a meeting planner today who is planning a conference for over 3,000 financial employees and wants to hire a motivational speaker. What is unique about this call is that her meeting isn't until 2015!
I was an inspirational speaker recently for the LA Metro Medical Center Retreat in Malibu, California. The other guest speaker for the Medical Center was Antonio Le Mons who presented on the best selling book, The Passion Test.
Mr Le Mons is a true believer, a therapist who gave up his therapy practice to be licenced passion test facilitator. In his motivational speech, Le Mons suggested that 80% of the population does not live their passion.
I was recenly a motivational keynote speaker for an insurance conference. After my motivational speech, a delegate came up to me and lamented how lucky I am to be the humorous motivational speaker because my topic is fun.
As a motivational keynote speaker, I have the opportunity to hear a lot of other guest speakers deliver workshops at industry events. Some of them are good but many are dry and uninteresting, especially when their content is relevant to the audience but is poorly organized and the delivery is painful.
Recently, I was an inspirational speaker for a healthcare conference. I was getting coffee before my motivational speech when a gentleman came up next to me and said, "You look like you could use a pick me up." I laughed self consciously and said, "Excuse me?" He replied, "Oh, sorry! You just look a bit worse for wear."

The most important skill a leader needs is to be able (and willing!) to give regular, informal motivational speeches.
I was a motivational speaker for a safety conference where the group decided that the most important thing safety managers can do is provide regular safety talks.
I am an inspirational speaker for the Governor's Hospitality and Tourism Conference on August 28, 2012, an event that will draw over 1600 tourism and hospitality professionals from around the world.
Most workplaces are required by law to provide appropriate on the job safety training. However, safety talks shouldn't be a one shot deal, because as time goes by safety may begin to be seen as 'a given,' and not remain a job priority. In the rush to get tasks done at work, mistakes happen. People are careless and accidents occur that can have huge consequences - personal and professional, individual and corporate consequences.
