Frequently Asked Questions

What is an inspirational speaker?

Do you want to motivate your pupils to achieve their goals? If so, have you considered inviting someone who can help you do this?

A inspirational 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.

Should I hire an Inspirational Speaker or a Motivational Speaker?

The difference between a Motivational Speaker and an Inspirational speaker is subtle; on many levels the two are interchangeable, and both types of speakers often possess similar qualities.

Motivational Speakers typically help organisations, leaders and individuals become more efficient and excited about what they’re already doing. When pupils (or employees) have lost their motivation to perform adequately or further excel in their current positions, a motivational speaker can renew their passion for their work.

An Inspirational Speaker takes motivational speaking to the next level. Inspirational speakers are the heroes, visionaries and dreamers whose personal lives are often testimonies to the human spirit. Their compelling tales of inspiration cannot help but make audiences look at the big picture of their own lives, encouraging them to aspire to be the best version of themselves possible.

A great inspirational speaker is extremely passionate about their message and easily delivers it in a relatable and riveting manner, all the while drawing the listener in on a deep emotional level.

Does Emily bring her medals with her to events?
