What is a motivational speaker?
By definition, a motivational speaker delivers speeches intended to motivate and inspire audiences. However, too many people believe motivational speaking is really only about getting the audience excited.
Excitement is superficial. A true motivational speaker moves your heart and mind by ensuring you leave the presentation with at least one actionable, practical piece of information you can use to change your life. That's the challenge, and that's the mark of a speaker who will leave a lasting impact, even if you only hear him or her once.
It's not just about feeling good. It's about learning how to become a better person and igniting the drive to enact the speaker's advice.
