I was a female motivational speaker for the Governor's Hospitality and Tourism Conference on August 28, 2012, an event that draws over 1600 tourism and hospitality professionals from around the world.
I was recently an inspirational speaker at a healthcare conference. The other Canadian keynote speaker was funny man, Brent Butt - former star of Corner Gas.
I recently got a call from a company who was looking to hire a motivational speaker. The current stumbling block was deciding whether this speaker should be male or female.
Hiring a motivational speaker can be an intimidating task. If it goes well, you look like a star, if it doesn't- it's painful.
Speech is the mirror of the soul;
as a man speaks, so is he. Publilius Syrus
Next week I am the keynote inspirational speaker at another banking conference. To help me prepare for the conference speaking engagement, I spoke to a bank Senior VP today. He said he was happy to speak with me as it will get him out of another dull staff meeting designed to waste his time. Meetings, if done right will kill you.
As a funny motivational speaker, I am usually hired to do a keynote speech. Here, there isn't a lot of time ( and the audience is too large) to do workshop activities.
However, sometimes I have the opportunity to do a follow up leadership seminar.
