Inspirational & Motivational Speakers

Do you want to motivate your audience at an upcoming virtual event or business meeting? Are you looking for an inspirational story to lift spirits and pull the team towards one objective? Booking a motivational speaker will help you achieve all those objectives!

A motivational speaker is someone with an amazing life story to tell – but it isn’t just the story itself that will motivate the audience, it is the way they tell it and the passion behind it that makes their speeches all the more inspiring. This is even more important during this period, where audiences want to be inspired to reach new heights and conquer the adverse challenges we face.

Motivational speakers may specialise in speaking to children, teenagers, students or professionals, and they may also specialise in certain topics, such as dealing with drug or alcohol abuse, building self esteem, resolving conflict, improving communication or productivity and so on. They may also specialise in a certain field like marketing, management, sport or sales.

Inspirational speakers are often people who have achieved great things despite serious adversity or someone who has used their skills to create a world-changing event, item or social enterprise. It might be you're looking for an incredible individual who has already inspired the world by winning Olympic medals, or someone who has defied physical disabilities to achieve unthinkable feats.

When you book a motivational speaker they will tailor their presentation to suit the specific needs of your audience and leave them inspired to reach new heights.

During the COVID-19 pandemic we are working with many event organisers to run a virtual events programme, with many having done so for the first time. We can help organisers every step of the way, including the delivery and management of their event.

There's never been a more important time to be inspired by some of the greatest humans to have walked this planet. To book a motivational or inspirational speaker contact our team for their expert advice today.

What do our website fee bands mean?

All of the speakers and artists featured on the website are classified within a specific fee range (e.g. E: £3K - £5K). This does not mean the speaker's actual fee will vary between these parameters. Instead, it is an indication that the fee is expected to fall somewhere within that range.

Some speakers may be listed as POA as they deliver a wide range of activities, which may mean that their fees are subject to greater variability depending on the requirements of our clients.

Fee bands are intended as an indication for corporate or private engagements and standard appearances to help you determine which speakers or artists are most likely to fall within your budget. These guides are based largely on our knowledge of the industry and that gained from previous bookings.

Please also note that these fees do not include VAT or expenses, and a firm fee can only be determined having approached speakers with a specific enquiry and full event brief. For the most up-to-date information, please contact a member of the Speakers Corner team, who will be happy to help.
