Where there is a will there is a way! And where there is a way there are people to make it happen! You cannot be a True Leader un till you set high motivation in your people. In today’s work scenario almost 40% of people are disengaged and nearly 50% tend to leave their jobs every year. How badly it would impact your customer loyalty is the next big question. Hence, leaders need to be trained in order to set right motivation, enthusiasm & energy in the workforce. As per current trend & analysis; training is no more a luxury’ its a necessity. Thus, there is a rising demand for motivational speakers in India & all across globe.


But how do we understand which amongst the best motivational speakers are well suited for your event? The National Speakers Association has compiled the following tips to help you in getting the right speaker for your event. Cause every event counts money & you need to ensure its spend wisely on the right speaker.

a) When a speaker sends you his/her presentation then try focusing on his message rather than the presentation. Is the “message” powerful enough to set your audience motive high?

b) Compare the journeys and key messages of the speakers you are considering. Find the one that draws the most parallels to your industry, the theme of your meeting and the challenges currently facing in your organization.

c) Choose a speaker who is willing to get involved, to better understand your organization, and who will adapt their message to your particular situation.
