Recently, I was thrilled to be invited to speak at the conferences for people who put on conferences (!) – CONFEX, held at London’s Olympia. Given I’ve been a professional Motivational Speaker for over ten years, I was hugely excited to talk to the geniuses who put on events around the world, some of which I get to present at! When I arrived, I saw that the stage was set up with a holographic screen, which was totally stunning – it used the same technique as the old vaudeville trick, ‘Dr Pepper’s Ghost’.

In his 1932 inaugural address, the newly elected 32nd President of the United States aimed to instill faith in his countrymen that he could lead them out of the Great Depression’s dusty shadow into an era of renewed prosperity. If anyone could have conceivably been excused for muttering, ‘That’s because none of you has had to explain your plan to repair a crippled economy while hiding your debilitating paralytic illness from a desperate nation that elected you president,’ it would […]

Legendary professional wrestling personality Jim Cornette is always ready to espouse a succinct, long-held personal conviction about infusing in-ring drama with excessive levity. ‘Funny don’t make money’, the Louisville Lip decisively tells his podcast listeners and obsessively devoted fans. Angling for the occasional chuckle is one thing.

You then have to narrow your spiel down to the essential enticing details you can […]
