Public Speaker

Often times, the term 'Public Speaker' causes confusion, as people are more accustomed to the term 'Professional Speaker' as opposed to 'Public Speaker'. However, the terms are interchangeable, having the same meaning. Public speakers are those who speak publicly, providing keynote speeches for events that are 'public' within the general meaning of the term. For instance, a keynote speech that is presented at company event, although not open to the general public, would still be an event at which a public speaker would deliver a keynote, as the audience is the 'public' of that company.

So referring to a keynote speaker a a public speaker or a professional speaker has the same meaning. Both earn their livelihood from speaking in public. Thus the term, 'professional' refers to a keynote speaker who is retained, versus a politician or a someone speaking at public events without being paid.

Motivational Speaker

Motivational speakers fill a very real niche among the ranks of public speakers. Their goal is to breath new life into their audiences through their keynote speeches in order to motivate them. Whether in the corporate world or in network marketing, the public sector or with nonprofits, all employees require constant motivation and this is a function that motivational speakers can rightly fill.

Many motivational speakers are simply that, i.e., keynote speakers whose sole purpose is to motivate their audiences. Other motivational speakers are also what we in the business call 'content' motivational speakers. In other words, our purpose extends far beyond simply making the audience feel good and 'charging them up' to go out and accomplish more. The problem with the purely 'charge up' approach is that the participants tend to 'drain back down' just about as quickly as they were charged up.

Once participants get back to the office or wherever else they work, the grind of daily work tends to de-motivate. High content motivational speakers not only motivate, but also provide their audiences with the tools with which they can excel at their work. Such empowerment is the work of high content keynote motivational speakers.

Keynote Speaker

Whenever professional keynote speakers form part of a meeting's agenda, audiences look forward in anticipation to their keynote. We live in an age where professionalism is highly regarded and where the entertainment industry has evolved our experiences to where we expect a high level of finesse in programs. Just look at the next major event you attend in terms of the staging and lighting. Thousands or ten of thousands of dollars are regularly expended by corporations and large associations for staging and lighting for their events.

Given such expenditures for mere 'backdrops', what is the audiences' expectation as to what is delivered from the podium. Today, showmanship counts. But today, so does content, as audiences and sponsors expect to come away from an event or large meeting with tools with which they can better cope with the demands placed upon them.

Professional keynote speakers can meet both audience expectations:

  1. Pizzaz - The showmanship factor audiences have come to expect, and
  2. The real business content - The information they need to know.

Smart program sponsors understand that their investment into one or more professional keynote speakers for their event will pay dividends many times over, if they have hired the right keynote motivational speakers.
