08 Feb MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKERS SPILL THE BEANS: WHAT ARE CONVENTION & CONFERENCE PLANNERS ASKING THEM TO PRESENT ON?
Motivational speakers thrive by tapping into current societal moods and trends to inspire audiences to higher levels of success. Looking ahead at 2024 and 2025, these resonant ideas will uplift corporate, association, and kick-off events.
Mental Health and Whole Self Care
Burnout, anxiety, depression and more mental health challenges plague today’s workforce. Uplifting talks teach lifestyle “hacks” to practice mindfulness, prioritize emotional wellness, address toxic thinking, and reduce stress through nutrition, movement, sleep and more. Expect a sharper focus on whole self-care.
Passion, Purpose and Meaning
Many workers feel disengaged or adrift in stale jobs. High-energy speakers covering topics like discovering your true vocation, leading an values-driven life, finding fulfillment by giving back and grounding yourself in meaningful work see high engagement. Count on more calls to action.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Inclusive work cultures where everyone feels valued and empowered to contribute drive innovation and profitability. But we have far to go. Bank on outstanding keynotes tackling bias, celebrating difference with humor, identifying everyday micro-aggressions, fostering allyship and more – followed by actionable takeaways.
Change as Opportunity
The turmoil of recent years proved the only constant is change. Savvy speakers position massive disruptions—like tech transformation, globalization and values shifts—as chances for growth. Learn to cultivate resilience, stay agile, develop grit, creativity and innovation to thrive through paradigm shifts.
Teamwork, Collaboration and Connection
The pandemic revealed interconnectivity while forcing many into isolated bubbles. Looking forward, 2024 and 2025 will bring team-building talks that use stories, play and humor to examine how we relate to each other.
