Get Your Team Moving with a Motivational Speaker

Motivational-Malachowski-Oluseyi-Saunders-Harrison-Weihenmayer

We often talk to clients who want a speaker who can come in, make a strong impression, and spur a team that’s got a big goal ahead of them to action. 

These five speakers do that and then some. Check them out below!

Col. Nicole Malachowski

America’s First Female Thunderbird Pilot

Nicole was a breakout star on the lecture circuit this year and we’re so happy to be working with her. It’s hard to watch her talk without getting emotional—she covers both her ascendance to become the First Woman Thunderbird Pilot in the Air Force and how she was ultimately forced to retire due to a medical condition. Nicole speaks honesty about drawing on inner strength and having the courage to say your goal out loud and ask questions like, “Why not me?” | VIDEO

Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi

Astrophysicist and Space Science Education Lead for NASA

Born into deep poverty in Mississippi, Dr. Oluseyi grew up in some of the roughest neighborhoods in the country. He realized a love of science and space at a young age and, despite near constant discouragement, went on to obtain three degrees, 12 patents for inventions in modern computer chips, and to work on Nobel Prize-winning research projects. Funny, warm, honest, and inspiring, Hakeem moves audiences to never give up. He also authored the forthcoming memoir, The Stars in My Soul: My Unlikely Journey Through Space and Time (the movie rights have already been bought!). | VIDEO

Ben Saunders

World-Record Breaking Polar Explorer and Repeat TED Speaker

Ben Saunders’s incredible feats of endurance challenge conventional wisdom and prove what can be accomplished through ambition, passion, and a refusal to quit. Best known for leading one of the most ambitious polar expeditions in a century, he was the first to successfully complete an epic, 105-day, 1,800-mile trek on foot to the South Pole. A speaker at 3 TED conferences, Ben uses stories and stunning visuals to illustrate and justify his beliefs that that “No one else is the authority on your potential” and “Impossible is just someone’s opinion.” | VIDEO

Scott Harrison

Founder and CEO of Charity : Water

Harrison launched his company Charity: Water with two huge goals: To turn the concept of what charity is on its head, and to eliminate the global water crisis in his lifetime. Today, he’s known for his innovative business model, which many investors said couldn’t work, and for funding water projects in 24 countries. He talks about making the change from being a night club promoter living a lavish lifestyle to becoming one of the world’s most-recognized philanthropists. He touches on why it’s never too late to make a change, how to solve problems with new ideas, and how to overcome obstacles with creativity and innovation. | VIDEO

Erik Weihenmayer

World-Class Blind Adventurer

At the age of 14, Erik Weihenmayer lost his vision. But he managed to push past the anger, frustration, and fear, and made friends with other blind individuals who went rock climbing. Weihenmayer continued working on his craft and, at age 33, became the first blind person to reach the summit of Mount Everest. His incredible story of determination and perseverance has been featured on the Today Show, Oprah, Good Morning America, and more. And this year, an Award-Winning documentary about Erik and his latest adventure kayaking the Grand Canyon called The Weight of Water was released. In speeches, he teaches audiences to follow his path and lead a "No Barriers" life, or a life without self-imposed limitations. | VIDEO
