How Long Does Brad Speak? How Much Time Do Motivational Speakers Need?
The short answer is, “Whatever you need!” No, we’re not being flip. It’s the truth.
The longer answer is, “The more time you have for Brad, the more value your audience gets.” Brad does a ton of sessions that are 1 hour. But Brad prefers 75 and 90 minutes for his keynotes.
However, one of the coolest solutions is something we call an Extended Keynote. This runs from 2 to 3.5 hours, and is a blended mix if Brad’s business keynotes and his highly-interactive “experiences” that incorporate team building, networking, high-energy and hand-on learning that makes sure the message “sticks” with your attendees. Adults learn best when they are involved. In these longer programs Brad maximizes both the learning and the fun to make sure that your goals are with your speaker are met.

What’s the Biggest Mistake People Make When Choosing A Motivational Speaker?
There are a few doozies:
Make sure your speaker doesn’t present a “canned” motivational speech. Your people are too sophisticated for this type of presenter. Brad customizes his message to make sure it’s on-target, relevant and very funny for each audience.
2. You fail to check credentials. Check references, check to see if they are a Certified Speaking a professional (Brad is!), that they have a list of happy clients and a long track record, and check to see if they have a significant body of work. This means that after you search Google and YOUTUBE for your speaker, you should see a lot of info that reflects a long and successful track record.
3. Make sure you set your speaker up for success. Ask your speaker, “What’s the best way to use you at our convention to assure total success?” If you use your speaker at the wrong time in the conference, and fail to set the room, the people and the technology up correctly, you risk speaker failure. Just ask…your speaker should know exactly how to set him up correctly.
Honestly, it’s a terrible phrase. Brad feels that it’s nearly impossible to motivate people. He does however believe that he can help people to motivate themselves, and that he can remove obstacles to motivation.
Motivation is important. Your people probably know what to do and how to do it. But they are not doing it to their potential? Why not? Lack of proper motivation. This is where your speaker comes in…to help get them on track and moving again.
People who have experienced mediocre motivational speakers often fail to see the importance of motivation. Brad likes to quote Zig Ziglar who said something like, “Motivation is like a shower. Just because you’ve had one once doesn’t mean you’re clean forever.” Motivation should be ongoing, powerful, and relevant. VERY relevant.
