Depression has hit my life. I don't personally experience it, other than the occasional glum mood. Yet, like most people, I have friends and family members who pop pills in hopes of normalizing their moods.
I was a motivational speaker at a healthcare leadership summit last year where they hosted a lively motivational talk about why people are motivated to work. A larger than I expected portion of the audience agreed that when it comes to work- what people really care about is money.
I recently watched a TedTalk by Paul Piff under the provocative title: Does money make you mean?
TedTAlk humorous motivational speaker Shawn Achor spews out quotes like the following in his motivational talk:Only 25% of job success is predicted by IQ. 75% of job success is predicted by your optimism level, your social support and your ability to see stress as a challenge instead of a threat.
On November 21, 2013 I was a humorous motivational speaker for the Louisiana Transit Authority at the Hyatt Regency on Loyola Ave.
A stunning new facility that suggests a vibrant, upscale, modern vibe.
Unfortunately, the meeting space itself left a lot to be desired. Situated in the bottom floor of the convention space, our meeting took place in the Elite room. Essentially it was a large exhibit space, with one area slightly altered to make it into a cosier meeting space.
These alteration included curtains, dividing walls and some warm spotlights pointing to the stage.
February is Heart Month, and I am a motivational speaker for several Go Red for Women Events throughout Texas and Nevada this month. Heart disease is the number one killer of women and the Go Red for Women events advocate for this cause.
Fun at work should be planned and not left to chance, otherwise it will disappear when times get tough.
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.
I was recently a motivational speaker for financial service employees, where the theme of the event was managing burnout. After some incredibly challenging years, financial service professionals need the motivation.
