Motivational Speaker from Philadelphia, PA

How do you ensure a successful event from start to finish?

It starts with getting to know as much as possible about the event, the audience, the theme, and the message that will make the biggest impact. From there, I customize a memorable and engaging presentation with a clear answer to the question "so what?" I can also offer ways to keep that message and impact alive through my Amazon Best-Selling book, TEDx talk link, Now What? Transformation Card Deck, access to online training, or coaching programs to reinforce the message after the event ends.

What is your favorite thing about being a Motivational Speaker?

Each event is unique--the sponsor, the location, the audience, the message tailored for them. There's nothing better than connecting audiences to meaningful messages, content, and even each other. What keeps me going is seeing that note being scribbled down, that spark in their eye, or that nod of a head that tells me I've made a difference.

Motivational Speaker from Miami, FL

Tell us about one of the most unique events you've been hired for.

As a motivational speaker, there are perhaps some events that are less applicable. I was once hired to speak at a holiday party to a corporate team - which is great, right up my alley. Except it was scheduled late at night at a bar, which means that by the time I was slated to get up and speak, everyone was fairly inebriated. I don't mind, I'll speak to any crowd, but the more liquor there is, the more likely heckling is - which I did get that night. It wasn't bad, I can handle heckling no prob.

What has been your biggest accomplishment as a Motivational Speaker?

Heckling! You need thick skin as a motivational speaker, and as a performer in general. There will always be times when someone is simply making it hard to perform. But thankfully, I have thick skin from various experiences in my life, and I've done what I can to make it work, and I just roll with the punches! Figuratively, not literally (no punching hecklers please!).

Randy Rolfe

Educational Speaker from West Chester, PA

Tell us about one of your all time favorite events you performed at. Where was it and what made it so great?

I was invited to speak at a conference in Moscow, called by Raisha Gorbachev, on teaching about the environment. I led a workshop on parenting, because parents are the first and most important teachers of how we relate to the world. I had the group do an exercise on their knees, to simulate being a small child. Then I learned that one of the participants was Chief Prosecutor! I feared I had offended him. Imagine my relief when his translator said, "He says he will now relate better to his sons."

What is it you love about being a Motivational Speaker in Philadelphia, PA?

I grew up in a beautiful mansion on the Main Line, went to great schools, and traveled the world every summer with my parents. I know first hand that Philadelphia is one of the world's great cities, with an unparalleled history, leading one of the greatest human experiments of all time. Because of the principles that were articulated here, I became a lawyer, eager to help others understand how to live together n peace and freedom. Now I love motivating people to build their very best life.

Motivational Speaker from Houston, TX

What do clients usually enjoy most about your services?

My clients are looking for motivation that also comes with actionable steps for change. Too often, speakers use fluff with little substances. I ensure that my clients are motivated but they are also equipped with the resources and tools needed to make changes in their personal and professional lives. This method has created the most change with the clients I’ve worked with. They receive the intrinsic motivation needed to ignite change, but they also receive the next steps to kindle the flame.

How do you ensure a successful event from start to finish?

I believe that the small details of an event are just as important as the large details. As a speaker, it is essential first that I understand what the event is, who will be in attendance, and what those people are struggling with. From there, I customize a presentation that will yield transformational change. Then, I stay in contact with the event coordinator to get an idea of room set up, audio/visual components, meet and greets, etc. Preparation is key to transformation.
