I got a call from a medical centre in Kentucky from a physician organizing a health care conference. He asked me if I am a motivational speaker and will I speak for free? I thought, Hmm would you do a surgery for free? He explained that he had 'hired' a motivational speaker last year who agreed to speak for free. I inquired, "Well, was he any good?" He said, "No - but it was free so who cares?"
I was a keynote speaker at a nursing conference last year and the other speaker was presenting a keynote on Bullying. It was a real eye opener because I thought this only happened in the playground with children.
I am a keynote speaker for a women's conference put on by the Bismark college on April 5, 2011. The event is called the Women's Leadership Express Conference and is held in Bismarck, North Dakota.
One of a handful of speakers on generational diversity, Larry and Meaghan Johnson coined the term Linksters.
I am a big believer in rewards and recognition to keep inspiration alive in the workplace. However, this doesn't mean flaunting unsubstantiated praise on everyone. Recognition is an art and you have to get it right to avoid the mediocrity/ entitlement trap.
Some of my favorite motivational speaking events are women's conferences. Í always come away feeling inspired and empowered and many people who couldn't make it are left to hear about the inspiration they missed. Now you don't have to miss it. Many powerful female motivational speaker videos are featured online. As women we take on so many roles and struggle to stay inspired.
As an inspirational speaker I get to work with some really great meeting and event planners.
Something I am adamant about is evolving our education system. Like many large institutions, the education system seems slow to evolve to the changing learning needs and wellness of students. Students learning would excell if their was more inspiration from teachers and learning methods catered to students.
There are some amazing motivational speakers with a compelling message. I think a really good professional speaker has a refined speaking style. Below are some of those styles to help you decide which would work best for your conference experience.
The CUPA-HR Southern Region Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas April 10-12, 2011 will bring together 250 HR Professionals in the higher education field. This exciting continuing professional development event has two motivational speakers and many educational break out sessions.
Some motivational speakers charge upwards of $30,000 to give a 60 minute speech. With that kind of an investment you have to really assess, is it worth it?
January 26 I presented a workshop at the Bethany Care Society's Organizational Cultural Quarterly Review leadership event.
