Trying to find a motivational speaker in Toronto is easy - there are a ton of them. Trying to find a motivational speaker in Toronto that will have a message that resonates with your organization is a little tougher. Remember, you are not only making a financial investment, your team will be taking time away from work to listen to this message so it's a good idea to think about what they should be walking away with before you start.

Many motivational speakers in Toronto are talented, entertaining and can easily engage groups with stories and anecdotes for an hour or so. People leave feeling energized and have shared some laughs with their colleagues. Then they go back to work and the energy fades, the message doesn't stick and no return on investment is realized.

Steven Covey wisely said that successful people always start with the end in mind. In keeping with that idea, here are a few questions to ask when hunting for the right motivational speaker in Toronto.

What are the key messages my team will hear? If this is part of a conference or offsite there are usually themes that you will want to focus on. Having a clear vision of this before you start searching for a speaker will save you a lot of time and effort.

Are the messages relevant and applicable to the work we do? Most motivational speakers in Toronto and beyond can tell you about their experiences but often fail when attempting to relate what they learned to the world their audience lives in.

Will the presentation be entertaining and interactive? Sometimes it's great to just sit back and let someone else do all of the talking - but when participants feel as though they are part of the presentation the message will have far better-staying power long after it is delivered.

Is the motivational speaker a subject matter expert? Whether it's leadership, creating high performing teams, change management or anything else, it is vital to know that the person behind the message can back up his or her story with real life experience and present it in a way that will make it easy for listeners to connect the dots to their own lives.
