Motivational vs inspirational speaker?
In this episode I explain how I differentiate between the two and how that changes the way I speak on stage. Disclaimer: I’m not saying being a motivational speaker is bad. And yes, I realise ‘hate’ is such a strong word but I’ve mainly used it for (melo)dramatic effect. My words on stage are ALWAYS inspired by love and hope.
Here are a couple of photos from the last kids’ conference I spoke at: https://www.instagram.com/p/BX5HT-YlFzH/?taken-by=takuspeaks
Seriously…so. much. love.
I also mention Stuff You Should Know’s podcast episode “Do motivational speakers motivate people?” http://www.stuffyoushouldknow.com/podcasts/motivational-speakers.htm
It definitely had me chuckling on the train!
Still curious? You might like to read Rob Prasad’s popular Linkedin article “The Difference Between Motivation & Inspiration”. His title just says ‘Speaker’.
