Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are so many great motivational speakers eagerly awaiting your call so they can deliver a great message to your audience. How do you know which one is the best fit for you? I will briefly discuss in this article, the three things you should do to make sure you hire the best motivational speaker.


In today’s world computers are readily available to most people. It’s important that you use your fingertips and take advantage of the information age. Forty years ago, most people had to go to the library and look up numerous books to find the information they needed.

Take the time to Google search potential candidates for your speaking engagement. I suggest going to numerous websites and reading the background information or about me section. A lot of speakers will have videos posted of their past speeches. Take the time to listen to what they have posted to get a firm understanding about their message and if he/she fits your needs.


You would be surprised how many times in one day a friend will want the opinion of another friend. Friends trust each other, and rely on each other for support. Social groups are a great way to keep in contact with each other and also it is a great way information is passed back and forth about certain products and services.

Believe it or not, a friend or family member is a resource but you have to tap into to that resource by simply asking a question. So ask the question “Do you recommend any great motivational speakers?” To your church members or poker pals. You might be surprised at the responses you receive.


So in a short period of time, you have asked all your friends if they recommend any one who speaks. You have also taken the time to get on the internet and research that particular motivational speaker. You are ready to move forward and hire that speaker for you event.

You will want to sign a contract with that speaker that outlines the specific dates and time you need him or her. You will also need to be prepared to pay for their travel expenses to and from the event. I also want to inform you that some speakers might have whets called a “rider” which is simply a list of specific things they require. A deposit will be required when signing the contract to have the speaker at your event. So remember before you hire the motivational speaker, you want to consider all the fees associated with booking.

You should ask around town for referrals before hiring a motivational speaker and research them by using computers. Sign a contract that has all details about the proposed event and when that day comes, sit back, relax and enjoy the motivational speaker inspire and motivate your audience.
