Seven Tips on Booking a Motivational Speaker in Ohio

Posted by joelpenton on September 22nd, 2015

It can be challenging to choose a motivational that can meet your objectives. You want to make sure that you are booking someone who has years of experience as a motivational speaker, so he can present a good program with a good blend of information, humor, and personal experiences to keep the audience well-informed and motivated. Here are seven tips that can help you book the right motivational speaker in Ohio:

1.    Identify the audience –Many professional motivational speakers specialize in certain types of audiences, like the youth, corporate, and teens. If you need a speaker for teens and students, choose someone who has years of experience as a motivational speaker to that demographic.

2.    Choose a well-known motivational speaker – Do your homework and look up the motivational speaker online to find out what others are saying about him and to verify his experience. Research should be able to tell you what the speaker can talk about, as well as his approach to motivational speaking.

3.    Learn his approach – Consider a motivational speaker who focuses on providing a positive message rather than using negative approaches to encourage people to make proper choices. Most teens and students are often told what not to do instead of what they should do to avoid trouble. A positive and relevant message may be more effective in encouraging the youth to make the right choices to reap rewards.

4.    Go for someone who shares true stories of failures and triumphs - Skilled motivational speakers use real-life examples to prove that ordinary people can achieve great things when they are committed to their goals and tasks.

5.    View samples – Most motivational speakers post their videos online, so you can judge their eloquence and skills. Pay attention to their audience and see if they are listening or preoccupied with something else. See if the motivational speaker encourages communication between himself and his audience. If you can, consider going to one of his events in Ohio. It is recommended that you meet and talk to him personally first before making your decision to hire.

6.    Go for a local – No one knows Ohio locals more than a local himself. Hence, consider choosing a motivational speaker who is based in Ohio.

7.    Check their schedule – Get in touch with the motivational speaker to find out if he can accommodate your event in his schedule.
