A motivational business speaker is like a motivational sports coach.
They don’t just talk about business, they teach it, too.
That means they’re always in the gym, teaching new habits and strategies.
But there’s something else that they can’t talk about.
They can’t sell it.
And that’s why they’ve developed a unique brand, one that’s driven them to reach millions of people around the world and become the best business motivational speakers in the world.
So, what’s the secret?
What is the best motivational speaker?
It’s the one who brings people together.
The person who inspires.
The one who has a message.
And, of course, the one that makes people laugh.
And this is exactly what they do.
“They’re a social phenomenon.
They make people smile.
They have a contagious effect,” says James D’Amico, co-founder of D’ Amico Management and former head of social media and public relations at ESPN.
“And it’s because they’re not just talking about business or business related topics, they’re talking about everything.”
The motivational speaker is not a product or a marketing technique, but rather an experience.
A social phenomenon and a motivational speaker.
They use the power of social proof, or the ability to inspire people, to create an experience that is a true social event, says D’amico.
In the case of motivational speaker, it’s a true sense of community, and an experience people can share.
“It’s an experience you share with your friends, it makes them feel better, it helps them make a decision or it motivates them to make a choice,” says Diamicos.
“And I think that’s what makes people want to talk about it.”
So what makes a good motivational speaker to you?
You’re looking for someone who knows what they’re doing.
You want someone who’s passionate about what they talk about and who believes they can get the message across to as many people as possible.
And, you want someone that can deliver the message, and be the person who speaks to you and helps you communicate.
So, why would you want a motivational business speech?
Because it’s the perfect opportunity to make friends, to make connections, and to make new friends, says Diamicoes co-CEO, Mike Diamo.
“If you want to get people to talk, and that’s your goal, a motivational speech is the perfect way to do that,” says diamico.
And you want the people to understand what’s going on in your life and how you are able to achieve your goals.
“If you can communicate that in a way that is compelling, you’ll get a lot of people talking,” d’ Amicos says.
But, most importantly, what do you need to get a motivational company speech off the ground?
A few things.
You have to be an individual.
There’s no such thing as a motivational marketing speaker that can be a “one size fits all,” says Jason Krakowich, cofounder of The Social Hustle and a former motivational speaker himself.
“The only way to get that one thing is to be yourself,” he says.
You need to know what you want out of life.
Diamico says it’s easier to get motivated and to get the right message if you know who you are.
“You can’t be a complete stranger in the room and be able to tell everyone what you think about everything,” he said.
And if you’re a shy person, you’re more likely to be the one to fall back on “what people say” and to say “I don’t care what people say.”
So, if you don’t know who your audience is, or if you think you’re the only one, or even if you want an easy-to-follow, one-size-fits-all motivational strategy, then the best thing you can do is to listen.
You need to connect with your audience.
A lot of motivational speakers focus on building up a personal network, which is a great way to build trust.
The more people you can connect with, the more likely you are to feel connected and to share the message with them, says Krakowski.
“But you need a lot more than that,” he adds.
You should also have a solid social proof.
Diamico gives two examples: his business partner and his girlfriend, who he met at an event.
“When I was sitting next to her in a meeting, I told her, ‘I have a big business idea,’ ” he says.
“She responded, ‘Oh, you know, I’m really excited to talk to you.'”
And, he also says, “I think my biggest
