The Impact of Inspiration
There is no definitive timeline for the influence, both professionally and personally, speakers can have on audience members. It is no wonder that they, and the organizations representing them, put so much preparation into an impending presentation. The weight of words can evoke change and subsequent actions in an instant. Or, years can pass before the seeds of inspiration planted by a speaker blossom into a life changing event.
Executive Speakers Bureau was recently contacted by a woman who, as a high school student, was so moved by inspirational speaker Dave Wottle’s message that she was honoring him decades later while competing in her first triathlon-at the age of 60! She would wear a white cap during her run, just as Mr. Wottle did when he won the 800 meter run in the 1972 Summer Olympics.
“Obviously Dave Wottle inspired me back then – and his story still inspires me. Just wanted to say thanks,” she wrote in an email to ESB. She went on to win her age group!
While the concept of mindfulness is currently getting lots of attention, it is a concept long embraced by speakers who are conscious of the fact that they might be a catalyst for change. Likewise, the organizations that entrust these speakers to be voices of authority at their engagements understand the long-lasting effects of a message rooted in awareness. It is one reason why they turn to Executive Speakers Bureau to find the perfect speaker whom they know will sow inspiration into the hearts and minds of those attending the event. They know these experiences, both moving and memorable, will have an impact: it is not if, but when.
There is no definitive timeline but there is a definitive need to plant a seed.
