5 things to look for in Australian motivational speakers
Does the motivational speaker have something meaningful to share?
Any half-decent actor can get up on a stage, grab a microphone and jump around shouting random ‘ra-ra’ statements for a few minutes and call it ‘inspirational’. You need to get to the heart of it and be certain that the motivational speaker you book for your next event has something truly inspirational to share.
Nat Cook is a 5-time Olympian who has not only achieved sporting success but also built her own businesses from the ground up. She knows what it takes to succeed in sports, commerce and life in general. When she speaks, her audiences are moved by the knowledge that she’s walked the same path as they have and can show them the way to success! In the world of motivational speakers, Nat is in a class of her own.
Are they a leader among Australian motivational speakers?
You don’t want just any motivational speaker in Australia; you want one of the best. Do you want your audience to be inspired to be… pretty good? Motivated and get up and go… for a little while? Or do you want them to experience true, lasting inspiration to follow their path to the pinnacle of success? Of course you do. That’s something only the best, most experienced motivational speakers in Australia can offer!
Nat Cook is no newbie. She’s built up her reputation as a leader among Australian motivational speakers over the course of two decades. She’s even inspired other motivational speakers to describe her like this: “A force of nature. She will inspire you to greatness.”
Will the motivational speaker be able to hold your audience’s attention?
Whether you’re booking a motivational speaker for school kids, a sporting team, corporate event or presentation ceremony, you need to make sure they can hold your audience’s attention for the full period of time allotted. A corporate audience is less likely to run riot than school kids, but the end result is the same – money wasted.
With a variety of props (including a superhero cape!) and spellbinding storytelling skills at her disposal, Nat Cook ensures the entire room hangs on her every word. Of her keynote presentation at a women’s luncheon it was said: “Nat was instantly engaging, energetic and witty; holding everyone’s absolute attention.”
Will the motivational speaker truly understand your audience?
Check the experience of the motivational speaker you’re looking to book: will they be able to tailor a presentation that speaks directly to your audience? Will they start talking to your school kids about mortgages or to your football team about bear markets and blue chip stocks?
Nat Cook has successfully motivated a huge range of audiences over the year, from corporate leaders right through to young girls just starting out on their sporting journey. She takes the time to listen to her audience and get to know them. She asks: what does success meant to them? What are their unique roadblocks on their journey and how can they overcome them?
Will the motivational speaker inspire your audience to take action?
It’s all very well to leave a session on a high, feeling good about yourself and like you might do something about it at some point in the future. It’s not, however, a good sign that your motivational speaker has been effective. You want to book motivational speakers who will not only inspire attendees on the day but motivate them to take long-term, life-changing actions.
Nat Cook understands this and spends time guiding attendees through the practical, concrete steps that will carry them along their path to success and ensure they are equipped to beat the many obstacles that life will throw in their way.
