What do Inspirational Speakers do?

According to Wikipedia, an inspirational speaker is one who “address[es] audiences with the aim of inspiring the listeners to higher values or engendering understanding about life and themselves.”

Why bring an Inspirational Speaker to your meeting or event?

Professionals today are working more hours than ever, on average, and are under greater stress, resulting in burnout, depression, frustration, and other negative side effects. They find less time for their families and for themselves. Inspirational speakers bring a refreshing message of hope and encouragement, and can rejuvenate audience members, boosting morale and injecting optimism.

In addition, when a meeting, convention or conference agenda is packed with in-depth, sometimes technical, content, an inspirational speaker can provide a mental break to program participants, enliven their spirits, and allow them to better receive and internalize the vast amount of material the meeting organizer has prepared for them. Audience members will feel better, find greater value in the meeting program, and appreciate the meeting planner for their efforts.

Shawn Ellis, Founder of The Speakers Group

Called “a refreshing change from other speakers bureaus,” The Speakers Group is led by industry veteran, Shawn Ellis, who currently serves on the Board of the International Association of Speakers Bureaus and has been helping clients secure speakers for their events since 1999. Whereas some speakers bureaus represent thousands of speakers, The Speakers Group features fewer than 300 speakers, experts and thought leaders, all carefully selected based on their ability to deliver a dynamic, meaningful message, while also delivering outstanding service to our clients (i.e. no prima donnas allowed!).
