What a Motivational Speaker REALLY Does

When you think of the best motivational speakers, do you think they just tell a story and get paid? What they really do might surprise you.


Many of us have probably thought, at one point or another, about the benefits of becoming a motivational speaker. You get to make your own hours, be your own boss, and fly all over, just to talk, right? In reality, there is much more to speaking professionally than simply telling a story (though a good speaker is usually a great storyteller, too). Being the best leadership or motivational speaker means reaching and engaging every member of an audience, while inspiring and educating them. Such dynamism requires a great deal of skill, patience, and practice.

Inspire and Educate.

One of the greatest challenges a motivational speaker faces is leaving a lasting impression; one that lasts days, weeks, and months longer than the event itself — a kind of sustainable inspiration. By fostering self-motivation, speakers make an indelible mark on all levels of a company’s culture. This serves to align individuals with their goals, employees with a
business’s vision, or a community with a cause. It is these systemic changes that make great speakers indispensable.


In order to ensure such changes continue to grow organically, motivational speakers must develop and implement an educational system. This may often mean hosting workshops and consultation services, in addition to further training and follow-up appointments. Without these resources, the changes may not be as durable or long-lasting.
