Competitors in the forthcoming London Olympics will currently be completely focused on winning a medal, to demonstrate excellence and outstanding achievement on the world stage.
Diet, injury, training and positive attitude will all be at the forefront of their minds. For some, this will be the year that their entire life changes. Fame, adulation and well-earned sponsorship deals await.
There is, of course, another by-product of being an Olympic winner – a lifetime of lucrative motivational, conference and after-dinner speaking!
Over the years, we have found that motivational speeches from Olympic champions make a great combination with our interactive team activities.
We are proud to have worked for over ten years with Sally Gunnell, Kris Akabusi, Roger Black, Linford Christie, Duncan Goodhew and Dame Tanni Grey Thomson. Each of these sporting heroes has had their own unique life journey.
They have all shared the determination and patience needed as they trained for many years, and the highs and lows of coming through the ‘ranks’, all the way to that unforgettable moment of standing on the podium, being deafened by the cheers of the crowd!
Each of our inspirational speakers tells his or her motivational story wonderfully well, and the audiences are usually treated to a video replay of the gripping moments up to, and after, their amazing success. There is always rousing applause in the room, and important closing remarks about the importance of injecting the same degree of positivity and success into business and personal life.
These motivational speeches are always revealing and inspiring. However, the audience does what audiences always do, which is passively watch and listen! This is why our interactive activities are so important. Our objective is to evoke the spirit and motivational intention expressed within the speech. It’s easy to sit, listen and to think about action. It is very different to actually get involved, keep focused and complete a task, which are often the underlying messages of motivational speakers.
Popular activities that perfectly complement our motivational speakers include:
These are all about transformation, surpassing limits and learning new skills. They provide a practical demonstration of the messages provided by our motivational speakers. Each is tried and tested the world over, and can effortlessly fit into almost any time slot. Everyone is guaranteed to leave the room on a personal high.
While motivational speeches can be powerful on their own, our team sessions provide even greater impact. Most of our clients are keen for participants to feel and create the emotion of success with their work colleagues.
We’re getting very excited as the 2012 London Olympics get closer. Above all, we are looking forward to working with the next generation of medal winners long after the Games are over, as they retell the most incredible moments of their lives.
