Inspirational speakers' fees can vary from very minimal to upwards of $50,000, depending on the speaker you are trying to book. The more well-known the speaker is, the larger his or her fee will likely be.
Some speakers will make themselves available for additional events when they book an out-of-town job.
I was a little skeptical about whether a motivational speaker could help. PB Talent helped us book a fantastic one. This guy was worth his weight in gold, and he achieved everything I could have hoped to achieve. I'm already shopping for next year's keynote.
PB Talent does the hard work of separating the wheat from the chaff. I just tell them what I need and relax knowing I'll score a fantastic motivational speaker each and every time I call.
Motivational speakers can help change the lives of their audiences. They engage and inform. They inspire, entertain, and enlighten. They can help build teams and open up new possibilities by changing the ways their listeners think about their current situations and problems.
Forbes writer and speaker Nick Morgan describes motivational speaking as a process of taking an audience on a decision-making journey.
"From Point A (pre-speech) to Point B (post-speech) where Point B is a different state of mind...How do you accomplish this feat? By persuading the audience that the point of view you are proposing is worthy of note, worthy of exchanging for their previous point of view on the subject. By telling the audience something that it doesn't know already. By inspiring them to think differently, dream differently, and ultimately act differently."
As you can see, motivational speaking is an extremely valuable service to companies, non-profit organizations and interest groups everywhere.
Yes. There are a wide variety of motivational speakers out there. There are different personality types, such as business thought-leaders, actors, celebrities, sports stars, and authors. Motivational speakers also cover a wide range of topics. Our speaker's bureau has scheduled speakers to address change management, diversity, economic trends, health and wellness, life balance, marketing, personal development, and more. We have even booked comedians, impersonators, and high-energy MCs. The possibilities are endless.
It's always a good idea to plan ahead. The more notice you give, the more you increase your chances of booking your first-choice speaker. Booking early also makes it less expensive to book travel and lodging. It makes it easier to acquire audio and visual equipment that the speaker might need as well. Booking six months to a year in advance is both wise and helpful. Booking through an established, reputable speaker's bureau can likewise make the entire process run more smoothly.
