Determine your Message & Audience
Identify the topic – The purpose of a speaker is to motivate. As such it is necessary to have thorough knowledge of the topic you are going to speak on. Not only that, your interest and passion for the topic needs to be evident while speaking in front of a crowd. Your energy driven by passion is as much a source of motivation as your knowledge of the field you are discussing.
The people listening to you and watching you speak will pick up on your commitment to motivate them by gauging how much you know and love what you are talking about. If they see that you are passionate about the topic, then motivating them about it will be a cinch.
We have a wealth of materials available at just about any topic. We can guide you through the process of choosing the topic or field of expertise that you can discuss.
Keep it relevant. If you want your career as a motivational speaker to thrive, then it is necessary to choose a topic, which appeals to the taste of the public. We make sure that you can maximize your strength in picking a topic that will surely entice your audience.
Have expert knowledge. No one will attend your motivational speaking engagements unless they know you are an expert. In fact, expert knowledge is the first requirement for all motivational speakers. This is the reason people will hire you for the job. A talent for public speaking is a definite plus, something that will create a good reputation for you.
Without expert knowledge, it is nearly impossible to start as a speaker, so do everything you can to gain all the knowledge you need.
Understand the audience. Not all speakers are gifted with the ability to connect with their audience. If you do not like young people then it does not make sense to accept engagements with them. If people with disabilities do not interest you at all, then it is likely you will not be motivated to speak in front of a crowd of PWDs for hours on end.
On the other hand, if you can relate well with women professionals then go ahead play on your strength and choose a topic that targets females in the workforce. The point is choosing a topic is as important as choosing your audience. People will know if you are motivated to speak to them or not.
