Karren Brady CBE

A strong campaigner for women in business, at all of her speaking events she is able to discuss this topic which is close to her heart, encouraging women to pursue a business career.

This negative experience did not affect her passion for business and she has gone on to become one of the most successful female entrepreneurs in the country. At all of her speaking events she is able to highlight these experiences and discuss how she managed to overcome them.

When it comes to business, having a sales team who are firing on all cylinders is absolutely crucial for a company to see success. Sales are often what can make a business sink or swim, so it is important that you know what makes them tick.

If a sales team for whatever reason becomes demoralised, complacent or is simply not performing as well as they can do, then it really can have a detrimental effect on the entire company. With this in mind you need to ensure they remain as motivated as possible and there are several ways you can do this. Here at Champions Motivational Speakers, we have compiled a list of ways you can keep your sales team motivated.

Communicate With Them

Communication is a key skill in all businesses and something that can make the difference when it comes to sales. By maintaining regular communication with your sales team, you can find out whether they are having any problems, and how to overcome them if this is the case. By presenting yourself as approachable to all of your team members, they are more likely to share any struggles they may have with you making your entire business more effective.

Set Goals

Goal setting is a sure-fire way to keep your sales team on track. If they have something to aim for, they are more likely to go the extra mile to ensure they achieve it rather than simply going through the motions each day. Also, incorporate little incentives at the end of each goal and staff members are likely to be motivated to perform at the best of their ability to secure them.

Praise Success

People always like to hear when they have done well and praising your sales team could be one way to motivate them. Whether it is an individual or the entire group, make sure you draw attention to any successes they may have. This can be something as simple as a well-done email, or a bigger gesture such as giving them a gift. However, make sure you don’t overdo it as too much will mean it won’t mean as much when it is given out.

Book A Motivational Speaker

Often bringing an external person into your business can be beneficial as they have the ability to inspire sales team to be the best they can be with their tales of success from their own careers. Whether they are sports stars, business experts or military personnel, bringing in a famous face to your event can provide a real boost.

One example of a motivational speaker who is able to help sales teams is Dragon’s Den star, Peter Jones CBE. The British entrepreneur is well known for his exploits in the technology, media, leisure, retail and property sectors and knows all about sales. After one of Peter’s events you can guarantee that your sales team will be on the top of their game.

Here at Champions Motivational Speakers, we have a whole host of excellent motivational speakers on our roster who have the ability to inspire any sales team to success. If you would like to book any of our remarkable speakers for your next event, get in touch with us by calling 01509 85 29 27 or complete our online form for more information.

Motivational speakers are a great choice when it comes to booking a speaker for your event. Able to inspire audiences to achieve success in all walks of life, they make an impact at every occasion they attend.

There are many ways you can go about booking a motivational speaker, but using an agency is arguably the most effective way to ensure your event receives the very best. Here at Champions Motivational Speakers, we have compiled a list of the reasons why you should use an agency when booking a motivational speaker.

Helps You Focus On Other Things

When organising an event there is a whole host of things you will need to consider. From creating guest lists, choosing menus and selecting a venue, it can be difficult to find the time to seek out the perfect motivational speaker. Often your event’s speaker will be the most important part of the occasion and so is something you will want to get absolutely right.

If you become preoccupied with all the other aspects an event requires, the speaker can become neglected meaning you may end up hiring someone who is less than impressive. However, by using an agency, you can be sure you will only be presented with the highest quality motivational speaker. They will be able to focus purely on sourcing you the best motivational speaker matching whatever requirement you may have. You will then be able to spend your time getting every other part of your event to the highest possible quality.

Present You With Recommendations

If you do not regularly put on events, or are doing so for the first time, then you may become overwhelmed by the amount of motivational speaker options out there. With hundreds of speakers available in a wide range of different areas, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly who is best for you.

An agency is able to eradicate these concerns as they can present you with a variety of suitable options for you to choose from. Every event is different and therefore will require a motivational speaker who can perfectly match the theme of your occasion.

Even if you do have someone specific in mind, an agency is able to facilitate this, as well as presenting you with alternative options should your first choice not be available.

Personalised Service For You

The most important thing about any event is that it lives up to your expectations. You are bound to have an idea and visualisation of how you would like your event to go, and an agency can ensure that they provide a motivational speaker who can help you achieve what you want.

An agency is able to spend time with you getting to know your requirements and ideas for the event and match you with the motivational speaker who suits you. Champions Motivational Speakers are committed to offering a unique personalised service to all clients, and our team of experts can ensure you find a motivational speaker who is perfect for your occasion.

Modern football is drawing more and more parallels with business, with clubs regularly trying to find a happy medium between performances on the pitch and balancing the books in the boardroom. With issues such as financial fair play becoming more and more prominent in the game, it is easy to see where the lines can become blurred.

With this in mind, there are many similarities between having a job in business and one in football. Arguably one of the most demanding jobs in the game is that of a football manager. Statistically, the average tenure of a manager in England is just 1.23 years, demonstrating just how demanding the role is.

Here at Champions Motivational Speakers we have a whole host of excellent former and current football managers on our roster who can teach businesses a wide range of different skills. These include:

Working Under Pressure

In football there are many high-pressure scenarios, and the role of a manager is perhaps the most pressured of all. If the team win, the players get the plaudits, if they lose the manager is criticised so thick skin is certainly a requirement of the job. The intense media scrutiny on football managers is particularly high, especially if they happen to be in charge of the England national team.

One man who can discuss what it is like to work under these circumstances is Terry Venables, as well as managing the England national team, he has also taken charge of the likes of Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur. In charge of England for two years between 1994–1996, he came under plenty of criticism in the role and even had high-ranking government officials calling him to lose his job due to him having his own controversial business ventures on the side.

Despite this he went on to lead England to a highly successful European Championships performance, and at all of his motivational speaking events he is able to discuss how he managed to work under this intense pressure.

Leadership

Another skill that is required in both football and business is leadership. The ability to control and get your message across to big characters within a team is crucial if you are to see success. Modern football has plenty of players with big egos, and it is important to know how to handle them to keep team harmony intact, and someone who understands this is Sir Alex Ferguson.

During his 26-year tenure at Manchester United, the legendary Scottish boss managed hundreds of players, many of whom were the amongst the planet’s biggest stars. He was able to keep these stars in check and win some of the biggest trophies in the world along the way.

At all of his speaking events he can help people with leadership, giving people in business the necessary skills to strive for success within their team.

Overcome Adversity

To make it as a football manager resilience, commitment and a strong work ethic are all basic requirements, but the ability to bounce back and overcome adversity is arguably the most important of them all. The nature of the game means that negative experiences such as defeats are inevitable, so a manager needs to be able to not be demoralised by this and encourage their team to progress.

During his highly successful career, Harry Redknapp has taken charge of a wide range of teams including Tottenham, West Ham and Southampton. He has to overcome adversity in his career, none more so than when he was manager of Southampton who were relegated in 2005.

Despite this setback he continued to believe in his own ability, and in 2008 won the FA Cup with Portsmouth, their first major silverware since 1950. At all of his speaking events Harry is able to talk about these incidents and showcase to businesses how important it is to overcome adversity.

Whether it is sport, business, politics or entertainment, we are able to provide an inspirational speaker who can make an impact at every event they attend. We have compiled a list of six of the best inspirational speakers you can book for your next social or corporate occasion.

Carl Froch MBE

A four-time world champion boxer, Carl Froch is perhaps one of the most inspirational sportsmen around. Starting out as an amateur fighter before going on to become the unified IBF and WBA Super-Middleweight champion, Carl has one of the most impressive boxing careers in the UK.

Now retired, at all of his inspirational speaking events he is able to discuss his rise to the top of one of the most competitive and relentless sports in the world. His aggressive fighting style saw him achieve plenty in his career and this is also something he is more than happy to discuss at his speaking events.

Lord Sugar

There isn’t much that is more inspiring than the business career that British entrepreneur Lord Sugar achieved in his career. Coming from humble beginnings, he left school with no qualifications and his prospects looked bleak. However, this did not stop him from pursuing his dreams.

Starting out by selling car aerials out of a van, he has gone on to become a world-renowned technology mogul, own a football club and be an advisor to the government. All this was achieved by working hard, and never giving up. Skills that make him an inspirational speaker, and ones he can display at all his speaking events.

Lance Corporal Derek Derenalagi

A career in the military often produces inspirational individuals, none more so than Lance Corporal Derek Derenalagi. Born in Fiji, he joined the British Army in 1999. Unfortunately, whilst on tour in Afghanistan in 2007, his vehicle was struck by an explosive device that resulted in him losing both his legs.

If this wasn’t bad enough, he was declared dead whilst undergoing surgery, and it was only as he was being placed in a body bag did doctors realise he was still alive. Despite this tragedy, he did not let this incident ruin his life and has gone on to be a Paralympic star, competing at the London 2012 Olympics as a discus thrower.

Bonita Norris

The youngest woman to ever stand at the summit of Mount Everest, Bonita Norris, is an incredibly inspirational individual. The explorer has achieved plenty in her career including skiing the north pole, leading an expedition to Mount Kilimanjaro and formed her own rock climbing company.

Ellie Simmonds OBE

Another Paralympic star who can delight audiences as an inspirational speaker is swimming sensation, Ellie Simmonds OBE. Still only just 23 years old, Ellie has won 27 gold medals in various swimming events including the Paralympics, World Championships and European Championships.

This is even more incredible when you consider that as a child Ellie was diagnosed with achondroplasia, a genetic condition that leads to dwarfism. Not letting her disability hold her back, she began swimming at the age of five and has never looked back.

At all of her inspirational speaking events Ellie is able to give a fascinating insight into her life in the sport.

John Blashford-Snell OBE

From the jungles of Mongolia to the treacherous Blue Nile river, John Blashford-Snell OBE has carried out more than 100 expeditions to some of the world’s most formidable locations. Having founded the prestigious Scientific Exploration Society in 1969, he won several awards over the years for his work.

However, amongst his proudest achievements was the various charity projects that he has become involved with. This includes helping disadvantaged children and young people by giving them military experiences to give them a sense of discipline.

The topics of digital disruption and artificial intelligence (AI) have become more and more prominent in recent years, but what do these phrases actually mean?

In a world where technology is advancing all the time, it is important to understand the meaning of these terms as well as the impact they can have on our lives.

Here at Champions Motivational Speakers, we have a wide range of fascinating personalities on our roster who can shed light on the topic at all of their events. We have provided a brief rundown of what these issues really are, and the speakers who have the experience and insight to every event they attend.

Digital Disruption

The word disruption here could imply technology causing problems but in actual fact it does not mean this at all. The term digital disruption actually relates to the emergence of new technology and the effect that has on the value and relevance of existing products. The constant evolution of technology can see those existing products fall to the way side and this is what digital disruption refers to.

A good example of this is the digital camera. Nowadays, digital cameras have a plethora of features that were not possible before. Even 10 years ago cameras were not as advanced as we are now used to, and they can also capture video as well as incredible photos. This has resulted in companies having to constantly keep up to date with the latest technology or fall behind. Many companies have lost millions due to not advancing their technology and products at the same rate, and this is what digital disruption truly relates to.

The Best Digital Disruption Speakers

Champions Motivational Speakers knows how important this topic can be to businesses, especially as they aim to keep ahead of the competition and we can provide a whole host of expert speakers who are able to offer their fascinating views on the topic.

A good example of this is Dr Kevin Fong. The renowned scientist is an expert on all technology related matters and can even discuss space exploration and the environment. He has appeared on some of the country’s biggest television programmes over the years and at all of his speaking events engages with audiences on a diverse range of digital disruption topics.

Other speakers we can offer include entrepreneur John Straw, Datafloq founder Mark Van Rijmenam and renowned author Gerd Leonhard.

Artificial Intelligence

Elon Musk - How AI is dangerous - YouTube

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the concept of computer systems or robotics able to perform tasks that require human intelligence. This involves several different tasks including decision-making, speech recognition, translation and visual perception and is something that is developing all the time.

First founded by academics in 1956, the topic has really grown in the last two decades, and some scientists and industry experts have even predicted that AI will power 85% of customer service interactions by 2020. With driverless cars and other features constantly being developed, there are even predictions that humans could be outperformed by AI within the next 30 years.

The Best AI Speakers

Due to it being such a popular subject, there are plenty of AI speakers to choose from at Champions Motivational Speakers. However, not everyone sees the developments as a positive thing. Tesla founder, Elon Musk, has concerns that AI could be extremely dangerous for the human race. The billionaire business mogul is one of the most high-profile figures to speak out about the subject even suggesting it could be more dangerous than nuclear weapons.

At all of his speaking events, Musk is able to discuss this topic in detail as he continues to demand regulations for AI. Other speakers who are able to highlight all the pros and cons of the issue include AI specialist Calum Chace, philosopher Professor Nick Bostrom and author Jack Uldrich.

Everyone knows that hiring the right keynote speaker can have a big impact on the success of your event. Get it right, and people will be talking about it for a long time, get it wrong and they probably will also be talking about it but not for the reasons you would like!

However, once the keynote speaker has been booked, there is still plenty of work to do. Introducing your keynote speaker might seem like an easy task, but in reality, it can prove difficult. There is a lot more to it than simply standing on stage and reading out a name, and here at Champions Motivational Speakers, we have compiled a list of our top tips, to ensure that you know exactly how to introduce your events keynote speaker.

Do your research

If you are tasked with the responsibility of introducing the speaker, make sure you get acquainted with exactly who will be performing. Simply having a name on a piece of paper is not adequate, especially if they have a name that needs to be pronounced in a certain way.

By making yourself familiar with the keynote speaker prior to taking to the stage, you are less likely to fluff your lines at the crucial moment. If possible even have a chat with the speaker beforehand so you know exactly what they are like. As well as this, by doing your research you may find out some interesting facts about the keynote speaker which will make the introduction an extra boost.

Make a list of their key achievements to include


Similar to doing research, by making a list of the keynote speaker’s main achievements, it can enforce to your audience the credentials the speaker has and what they can offer to the event. For example, if you opted to book England and Newcastle legend Alan Shearer OBE for your social or corporate event, you would certainly want to mention the fact he is the top scorer in Premier League history with 260 strikes to his name. Likewise, you wouldn’t refer to Sir Simon Gass without mentioning his work as Ambassador to Iran.

These facts will give your event some weight and it is important to ensure audiences know this from the off as they are then more likely to respond positively to the keynote speaker.

Promotion

Whilst it is important to introduce keynote speakers in the right way, it is almost equally important to promote them in the right way. If no one knows that the event is happening, then it doesn’t matter how great the keynote speaker is.

There are several ways to do this, using social media is perhaps the best way to get the message out to people. Producing posters and flyers can also help but ensure all the relevant points are made so people know why this event is worth attending.

Consider a host


If you’d rather not get up on stage yourself to give the introductions to the keynote speaker, it might be worth hiring an event host to do this for you. As well as being able to confidently introduce your keynote speaker to audiences, an event host is also able to keep guests entertained, and ensure proceedings run seamlessly. They can even interact with your keynote speaker in a Q&A format if necessary making sure your audiences have a thoroughly enjoyable time. All of the speakers on offer at Champions Motivational Speakers are also available as event hosts.

If you would like to book any of our excellent keynote speakers for your next event or conference, get in touch with Champions Motivational Speakers today. Call 01509 85 29 27 or complete our online form.

Keynote speakers make for fantastic entertainment at a wide range of events and have the ability to inspire, educate and motivate audiences. Hiring the right keynote speaker can transform your event from an ordinary occasion to an event that will live long in the memory of everyone involved.

Here at Champions Motivational Speakers we have a whole host of excellent keynote speakers available, who have made it to the top of their industries including sport, politics, business and entertainment who are able to share fascinating anecdotes with audiences about what they have achieved in their own careers.

We have compiled a list of reasons as to why a keynote speaker can be beneficial for your next occasion.

Able To Engage Audiences

This is perhaps the most important thing a keynote speaker can do at an event. Irrespective of the topic of your occasion, you need to keep audiences interested and engaged throughout the evening otherwise you run the risk of people getting bored and leaving early.

Hiring the right keynote speaker can eliminate this danger as they can share stories with audiences regarding their own careers teaching people various skills that they can take on board in their own lives. An example of a keynote speaker we work with who always keeps audiences captivated is British futurist Ben Hammersley.

Having appeared on numerous television documentaries and performed keynote speeches at some of the most prestigious venues in the world on the topic of technology, digital innovation and social cultural trends always leaving people wanting more.

Inspire People To Be The Best

Many organisations hire keynote speakers to make a difference in their own work place, motivating people to be the best they can be, and go far in both their professional and personal lives. Encouraging people to work hard, never give up and be ambitious, a good keynote speaker will see people leaving their events keen to make changes for the better.

One of our expert keynote speakers who can help with this is successful business woman and entrepreneur Sarah Willingham. Famous for being a former Dragon on Dragon’s Den, Sarah has managed high-profile High Street restaurants including Pizza Express in her career, inspiring success in a whole host of food establishments.

At all of her keynote speaking events, Sarah is able to demonstrate people how it is possible to be successful in all walks of life.

Overcome Adversity

Throughout everyone’s careers there will be occasions when they have to confront negative experiences and overcome them. Whilst this is necessary if you are to be successful, it is easier said than done and this is where a keynote speaker can come in handy.

Able to teach people how to overcome this adversity, one of our keynote speakers who excels at every event they attend is Virgin owner and entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson. From a young age it was clear that he would go far but he faced many hurdles on his way to success. Starting a record shop in the 70s, at the time there was several restrictions on selling products. Despite this, Sir Richard still believed in his business model and has gone on to build a billion-pound company.

Here at the Champions Motivational Speakers agency, we have a whole a host of superb keynote speakers that are available for hire. To book somebody, give us a call today or fill in our online contact form.

With technology advancing all the time, a whole host of new topics have become available to motivational speakers, one of which is the revolution of cryptocurrency. Whilst this digital currency may seem like something out of a science fiction movie, it has become very real in recent years with millions of people around the world using these systems.

Cryptocurrency can then be transferred into people’s bank accounts and act as real money, meaning, if done correctly, can become incredibly lucrative. Using cryptography to secure transactions between users there are six key rules to cryptocurrency.

  • The system does not require a central authority.
  • The system keeps an overview of cryptocurrency units and their ownership.
  • The system defines whether new cryptocurrency units can be created. If new cryptocurrency units can be created, the system defines the circumstances of their origin.
  • Ownership of cryptocurrency units can be proved exclusively cryptographically.
  • The system allows transactions to be performed in which ownership of the cryptographic units is changed.
  • If two different instructions for changing ownership of the same units, the system performs one of them at most.

Perhaps the most famous cryptocurrency in the world is Bitcoin. Formed in 2009 it became the first decentralised cryptocurrency in the world working without a single central bank or administrator. This means all interactions take place directly between users before being verified by Bitcoin and then recorded in a public ledge called Blockchain. The identity of the Bitcoin creators remains unknown going under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto and the currency is now accepted by over 100,000 organisations.

Users can get bitcoin through a process called mining which is done through the use of computer processing power. The complex process includes two functions, adding transactions to the blockchain and releasing new currency. Individuals who are mining also need to provide proof-of-work (PoW).

When people begin mining they require a computer that comes with a special programme and they will then begin competing with other users to solve complicated mathematical equations and problems. Once they have solved a problem successful and provided proof of their work they will receive 12.5 Bitcoins.

As the topic of cryptocurrency and Bitcoin has become more prominent in society they have also become fascinating topics of discussion at speaking events. Here at Champions Motivational Speakers we have a whole host of Cryptocurrency Speakers who can provide a boost to every event they attend. These include:

Jordan Belfort
