As we wrap up the year, we wanted to send over a little insight about which kick-off speakers have been resonating with our clients this year.

Here are a few of our top keynote speaker recommendations to consider for sales kick-off meetings:

  • For a high-energy talk on winning over consumers who make decisions emotionally—not logically: Ken Schmidt, Legendary former Director of Communications at Harley-Davidson Motor Company
  • For a motivational speech about finding and maintaining your “Never Quit” mindset: Robert O’Neill, Navy SEAL Team Leader & Best-Selling Author of the Book, The Operator: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior 
  • For a hilarious and passionate talk about disrupting your business model before someone else does—from someone who’s done it: Sarah Robb O’Hagan, CEO of Flywheel Sports, Former President of Gatorade, & Former GM of Nike
  • For an inspiring talk about chasing dreams, pushing past negativity and doubt, and unlocking personal power: Laila Ali, Four-Time Undefeated Boxing World Champion, TV Host, CEO, & Author
  • For an exploration of what makes things popular, why certain campaigns catch on, and how to be more persuasive in life and business: Jonah Berger, Wharton Marketing Professor & Best-Selling Author Of The Book, Contagious
  • For an off-the-wall look at throwing convention aside and embracing the new “experience economy”: Dustin Garis, Former Chief Troublemaker At Procter & Gamble (Global Brand Innovation Leader, P&G FutureWorks)
  • For captivating stories about turning around struggling brands and regaining lost costumers: Susan O’Malley, Former President Of The Washington Capitals & The Washington Wizards & First Female President Of A Professional Sports Franchise
  • For an energizing talk on taking control of your happiness and success: Joel Zeff, Workplace Expert, Author, Emcee, & Humorist
  • For a moving personal story coupled with advice for unleashing your potential: Vernice Armour, America’s First African American Female Combat Pilot
