Speeches and Workshops
Getting the Most Motivation From Your Motivational Speaker
It starts with knowing WHY you want the speaker. The specific requirements of your event and your audience at your function all add up to something unique.
From a keynote presentation intended to energise and provoke ideas at a conference, to seminars teaching your sales staff the principles of goal setting and motivation, to entertaining clients at a Christmas function – In every case, you want a motivational speaker because you want results. After listening to a motivational speaker you want the audience to come away with a new understanding and a different attitude – to think differently and act differently. You want them to enjoy themselves too!
So before any presentation I will always meet with you to understand the background and goals of the occasion, the size and demographics of the audience, and what content needs to be put across in what manner so that my presentation and delivery can be specifically crafted to meet your needs, and you get maximum value from having me.
That said – here is what I typically get asked to do:
• To help achieve peak performance in an organisation
• Entertain and inspire staff and clients
• Provide insight into outrageous (but achievable) goal setting
• Provide techniques for maintaining motivation and persevering through adversity
• To help create high performing teams
To help give you a better idea of what I present on, see the box below. Of course the content of these speeches can be mixed and matched or new content created for your specific situation.

Is your team stuck in a rut?
Are your people taking personal responsibility for achieving their work goals?
Are you looking to reinvigorate your culture?
Every organisation faces times when performance plateaus, when the work force is firmly within their comfort zone. At these times what is needed is a bit of a circuit breaker, something to knock the problems and challenges back into perspective, something to get people excited about how much more there is to achieve.
This presentation confronts unspoken doubts head-on, and provides tips, tools and realistic strategies to help refocus team members on what they can control. It helps them build resilience, create momentum and achieve success.
Is your team under pressure to deliver major results?
Are your staff daunted by the size of the challenge they have been asked to take on?
Few things stay the same in business. Competitors get faster and smarter. Consumers want more for less. To take your organisation to the next level of performance will often require setting and achieving audacious commercial goals – be it dramatically raised sales targets or rapidly developing new products.
In this presentation I share the techniques and attitude adjustments that I used to deal with my doubts, get off the sofa, persist through some pretty gnarly setbacks and win the trans-Atlantic rowing race and become the first kiwi to trek unassisted to the South pole!
Are your teams working as effectively as they could be?
Are you looking to reinvigorate your culture?
There is plenty of evidence to show that teams produce better results than individuals – but only when a team is functioning well! Everyone has experienced the frustration, aggravation and productivity loss of being in a team that is dysfunctional. If the team dynamic is starting to turn sour it is best to address it early before problems become entrenched.
This presentation is about improving the culture within a team, about setting up the ground rules for behaviour and heading off problems before they become serious issues. It’s suitable for a team that’s just starting out, a team that is starting to show a few cracks or a team that wants to take their performance to the next level.
Is your team finding it difficult to cope with change?
Are they struggling to persevere through adversity?
Nothing worthwhile is easy. In every role in every part of an organisation setbacks happen frequently – whether they come through external shocks, cyclical down- turns or through our own unintended, unexpected screw-ups. T
his presentation is about making your team more resilient to setbacks. It will provide them with tools to enable them to better persevere through difficult times and cope better with change.
Is your team under pressure to deliver exceptional results?
Are they working below their full potential?
This intensive half day workshop identifies and confronts the internal road blocks to achieving audacious goals. It provides participants with a set of tools and insights to help them remove their internal barriers to success and make a step change in performance.
