According to a recent national Gallup poll, lost productivity of disengaged employees costs the US economy $370 billion annually. Another study showed that only one in three employees was actually fully engaged in their work. No wonder, then, that meeting planners say motivational speakers are the #1 choice for keynote sessions.
Speakers Help to Boost Morale
If employees are in need of a morale booster, motivational keynote speakers are the ideal solution given that they are specifically trained for this scenario. Their main thrust for speaking is motivating others — including your employees.
Motivational keynote speakers are experts in this field with tremendous amounts of experience. (Consider that they spend almost every day at various locations all across the country motivating and inspiring audiences.)
Not only do these speakers offer practical solutions for the challenges you and your employees are facing, but they do so with a mix of humor — always a good thing when things have become a bit mundane — to ensure your employees are fully “tuned in.”
Humor and Motivation “Makes the Medicine Go Down”
In our rapidly changing business world, the economy is tied to business success. To remain competitive, the cutting-edge ideas and practices that are ushering in positive change are most easily delivered into your business environment through this powerful doorway of humor, new information, motivation and practical application.
Offering New Skills with Motivation for Reinforcement
Great motivational keynote speakers will be the most likely to succeed at inspiring your employees to remember, as well as rely on, the business skills they are already using.
Great speakers work to reinforce practical ideas and skills that resonate back into your employee base. These reinforced skills usually include organization, customer service, work ethic and ever-increasing productivity.
Motivational keynote speakers also help to find effective ways for managing stress levels and workplace conflicts.
Where to Find Your Perfect Speaker
You can find great speakers through colleague recommendations and by attending events yourself, or you may also find it useful to speak with employees who are well versed in the cutting edges of your business in order to discover ideas for motivational talent.
You can also call on any number of motivational speaker bureaus, such as The Speakers Group. When you are ready to find the right speaker for your unique event — and for your unique audience — a speaker bureau will guide you through the filtering processes to ensure you find exactly the right person for your business objectives.
In any case, your ideal keynote speaker should be able to relate, inspire and motivate your employees by designing their presentation around your specific needs.
