With 2017 coming to a close, why not end the year off with a bang with a powerful presentation from one of South Africa’s most sought-after motivational speakers? There’s no question that a year-end event is an excellent opportunity to communicate your message and thank clients for their support, as well as show appreciation to your hardworking employees, but it’s also a strategic opportunity to motivate, strengthen relationships, promote leadership, and persuade change for the New Year.
Yes, the importance of a year-end event cannot be underestimated, and now the pressure is on to find the “Indiana Jones” of all speakers who will leave your guests feeling inspired and motivated, talking about your 2017 year-end event for years to come. But not every motivational speaker is cut from the same cloth, which means finding the right one can be quite a task. With that said, follow our tips and you’ll be well on your way to ending the year off with a bang.
#1 Always Put Your Message First
Today, business is tough, and if you want to re-energise your employees and re-assure your clients, then you need to give your audience a year-end motivational show that they will never forget. First and foremost, determine the type of message you’re trying to convey. There are many different types of motivational speakers, from trainers, comedians, workshop facilitators and industry speakers, to entertainers and sports icons. There are speakers that are funny, charismatic, serious, and persuasive, and then there are those who are all of the above and more. Once you’ve established your message, your choice will become more apparent.
#2 Experience, Reputation, and Portfolio
Ask any event planner, and they will tell you that choosing the right motivational speaker can be a huge hit-and-miss affair. However, if we’ve learned anything, it’s that you get what you pay for, and that people are inspired by success. In fact, nothing quite grabs the attention of an audience like a successful person sharing their hard-earned disciplines and secrets on how they turned their obstacles into success. Life is tough, and people want to laugh and be motivated. With that said, when choosing a motivational speaker, look at experience, reputation, knowledge, skill, and personality. Motivational speakers appreciate that the success of your event rides on their performance, and their years of experience will not only add to the success of your event, but also to your peace of mind.
Choosing a motivational speaker for any event can be a challenge. You don’t want to settle; you want an exceptional and charismatic motivator that will have everyone fired up and ready to make a life-altering change. Whether you’re looking for someone to break the ice, bring tears of laughter to the eyes, inspire and motivate without fear of failure, or wrap up your year-end event, you certainly can’t go wrong with a motivational speaker from Marie Grey & Associates.
