Dreamers who are just beginning to work on their big dream of being a paid motivational speaker will often ask me:
How do you give a motivational speech?
There are many different ways to give an effective motivational speech. In fact, there are as many styles as there are public speakers. To tell someone “the right way” is folly. There is only the way that gets you booked as a speaker and delivers an amazing experience for your audience.
I have written many articles on how to give a good presentation, but sometimes the way we learn best is by seeing one in action and studying it. So today I’m sharing with you a recent speech I delivered for a group of women at the LRH Annual North Country Women’s Health Conference.
This isn’t the right way; it’s my way.
But hopefully, watching this video of my motivational speech will allow you to use it as a case study to decide for yourself what works and what doesn’t in a stimulating speech, and how you can tell your story on stage.
Note: In this case, the client asked me to deliver something funny and motivating, with a lighthearted message. My speech begins at 13.45 if you want to skip the business part of the event start listening to my speech right away.
I’m holding two Power UP workshops this year.
Check them out! We’d love to have you join us.
