Shed Simove is the Machiavelli of monkeyshines. His approach to inventing could best be compared to a boxer willing to tank four punches to land one. The U.K. born ‘Ideas Man’ has no reservations about having his Chiclets rattled by a few stinging jabs of unwanted outcomes, precisely because he possesses an entrepreneurial granite chin that buys time for those punches he eats to illustrate the perfect place and time to land a single decisive haymaker that pays instant dividends. In fact, in the time it likely took him to read that sentence, he more than likely conceived an app […]

You’ve made it abundantly clear to both your audience and the organizers who engaged you to speak at their event just how vigorously you are driven by your visibly passionate commitment to the core subject of your talk. Congratulations, you unequivocally love what you do and take great satisfaction in imbuing others with your enthusiasm. Now, do yourself and everyone around you a favor: lighten up. Objections about your reputation possibly being biased more toward valuable information flavored with gravitas ring loud and clear. “I’m paid to educate”, a few hard-working professional public speakers might insist. “I don’t show up […]

An invitation to deliver a keynote address is a tremendous honor to virtually any speaker, from a seasoned professional to someone with little or no professional speaking resume. It symbolizes a perception that an individual’s achievements and reputation are synonymous with some set of overarching progressive goals and principles passionately valued by a like-minded organization. Simply having one’s presence requested in such a capacity can significantly validate the values a speaker strives to inspire belief in by conveying the message, “You wield the influence to light an uncommon fire beneath both strangers and your peers alike. You could lead us […]

Orchestrating a professional speaker’s address at your conference is never a one-way street. Between scheduling travel and lodging, preparing the actual talk and simple technical logistics, your speaker will be all the more amenable to future appearances if you assist the process by readily providing as much pertinent information about your event as possible as soon as you can and working quickly to have every presentation need met before the conference actually rolls around. The stage you provide influences the magic any keynote lecturer can work. Meet any dedicated professional you engage halfway to ensure your audience gets the maximum […]

As a professional keynote speaker, my presentations contain a myriad of real-world examples of ideas I’ve brought to life (and the lessons learned from doing so) to show how blue chip companies, organisations and entrepreneurs can implement innovation, creativity and left-field marketing in order to achieve wondrous success. There’s nothing more fulfilling and exciting than watching an idea from your mind come to life in glorious reality, and then it’s even more thrilling if that idea then engages with people, entertains them or even (on the rare occasion!) brings in revenue. Well, maybe there’s a couple of things that come […]

Establishing a productive relationship with an in-demand professional public speaker requires a degree of give-and-take between the lecturer and event organizers. Yes, the speakers who turn the ears of the world with their every word have no doubt each honed a handful of inspiring, informative and provocative talks ready to be delivered with great aplomb on a moment’s notice if necessary.

They assuredly love what they do with a unique passion that can only accompany a calling to motivate strangers toward brighter […]

Recently, I was hugely delighted and excited to have been invited to present my motivational speech at a fabulous event in Austria. The brilliant and high flying executive who booked me made the decision to hire a professional speaker for his own company event after watching me present as a keynote speaker at a conference held in Vienna, Austria, a few months earlier. He chose me to deliver my talk at his top level conference of senior executives at an incredibly stunning location. The event was held at the Hotel Billroth in St Gillgen, which is very near Salzburg.  Salzburg […]

I’m hugely excited to appear on the bill of Brand Minds Asia with a raft of impressive professional speakers and keynote speaker, Gary Vaynerchuk. Wooop! As a professional motivational speaker who’s hired to present around the world, it’s taken me ten years of giving speeches to get to this point, and a further fifteen before that to have enough insight, business examples and knowledge to be able to present about creativity, innovation, sales and guerilla marketing, with the aim of delivering a speech that materially benefits the bright and dynamic people or Teams in the audience. So it’s taken about […]

Fortunately, no unspoken workplace edict has ever dictated that an effective partnership is based strictly on two or more people actually liking each other. If that were the case, every business environment from McDonald’s to Microsoft might resemble a simultaneous reenactment of every Wrestlemania event ever witnessed. That flexibility comes at the ‘cost’ of exhibiting the patience to set aside wanting to throttle certain individuals in the name of an acknowledged shared interest. That single lesson learned and relearned repeatedly among coworkers is a universally applicable benefit of spending at least a little time as part of a team: if […]

Nerdist founder, prolific television host, comedian and holder of a degree in philosophy from UCLA, Chris Hardwick, so effectively sums up the central challenge of changing anyone’s mind about anything in his book ‘The Nerdist Way: How to Reach the Next Level (in Real Life)’, with this single quote that could preface every motivational speech until the end of time… “‘Better’ often feels ‘new,’ and new situations are like jeans: they can sometimes take a bit before they start to fit right,” observed quite possibly Hollywood’s reigning ‘Hardest Working Man in Show Business’. He happens to be correct, too: if […]
