“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”
~Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Is hiring a motivational speaker really worth it? What possible return on investment can I get?
These are the questions that go through many people’s minds when they are considering hiring a motivational speaker to speak at their company. Maybe you’ve thought of these questions yourself.
And I don’t blame you.
Listen, I’ve been in this business for almost 20 years. I’ve spoken to people ranging from fresh executives to CEOs, from celebrities to royalty. And here’s the thing, no matter how satisfied my clients were at the end of it, almost all of them admitted to me that they initially had their doubts. Doubts that I wouldn’t be able to deliver; doubts that this would all be a waste of their time and money.
I don’t blame them either. Doubts are natural, and skepticism is both healthy and important.
So let me ask you this question, how important is it to have a motivated team?
Are You and Your Team Truly Operating Close to Your Full Potential?
A Gallup study of employees in 142 countries found that only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work. I don’t need to tell you what a dismal figure that is. If you are in upper management, you may read this statistic and think to yourself “No way is MY team that disengaged!”
Perhaps that’s true, I cannot say. But can you honestly say that 100% of your team is engaged? How about 90%? 80%? 70%?
If you are being honest with yourself, I have no doubt that no matter how good your team is, there’s always potential for more. Potential for your team to push themselves harder, to engage more fully in their work.
Gallup’s data also shows that business units in the top 25% of employee engagement, when compared to the bottom 25%:
- Are 17% more productive
- Suffer 70% fewer safety incidents
- Experience 41% less absenteeism
- Have 10% better customer ratings
- Are 21% more profitable
Now let me ask you this, do you think that more motivated employees will be more or less engaged in their work?
What I Guarantee To You and Your People
Will your team be more engaged after I speak to them? Yes. And that’s not an empty promise; it’s a guarantee.
I’ve done thousands of events throughout my career. And for each one, I’ve guaranteed and will always continue to guarantee the success of my speeches. This is why I was voted the Top Motivational Speaker in 2017 out of a list of 1,300 professional speakers and thought leaders. This is why 80% of my business comes from repeat clients.
Let me get a bit personal with you.
Think of the time when you weren’t feeling your best. And then someone said something. It could have been a parent, friend or even a stranger. It could have been said in passing. It could have been a quote. It could have been intense. It could have been simple. No matter what it was, it changed the trajectory of your life. Do you remember what was said? Can you see how much it’s impacted your life so far?
Inspiration is priceless. And nothing, absolutely nothing can stop individuals and teams that have vision and purpose.
Let Me Turn Your Team into an Unstoppable Force
When we get inspired, we can move mountains. When our inner flame ignites, we start what can be an unstoppable fire.
What could your fired up team look like? What could they achieve?
What would it mean if we can turn your team into an unstoppable force? Bulldozers who will stop at nothing to get to the group’s vision?
Whether it’s managing a crisis, bringing the team together, getting a buy-in towards a vision, rallying the troops to post a record year, upskilling the sales people to become money machines, inspiring great leadership from within the teams, and having more people rise up to the challenge, I’ve faced every situation together with my clients.
You tell me the agenda. We discuss your desired outcome. I get working. We accomplish.
Allow me to work with your team and have them Get Inspired, Get Informed & Get Going. I guarantee my success. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
