Phil Hansen

The first of our popular motivational speakers is multimedia artist and innovator Phil Hansen, an asset to organizations looking to embrace challenges and encourage teamwork. His calm approach is a counterpoint to the intensity of his creative work.

As an art student, his intensity, focused on his style of pointillism, led to nerve damage in his hand. Though initially devastated, he discovered new ways to create, pushing his limits and the boundaries of what was considered possible.

Propelled to fame by his interactive artwork, on which his audiences collaborate, he practically illustrates the power of teamwork. Documenting the audience’s creative activity, he reminds us of the importance of action, shifting focus from the result.

Tens of millions have seen Phil’s art on TV and online. To see him at your event, book him today!

Amelia Rose Earhart

Amelia became one of the youngest women to fly a single-engine plane around the globe. Her experiences make her the ideal person to help people find and push their limits.

Having followed her namesake’s original 1937 flight plan, she talks insightfully about identity and discovering her passion. She challenges her audiences to do the same and will help your audience members discover their “True North.”

Amelia’s flight is symbolic of determination, courage, and empowerment, particularly for those who may be underestimated because of their gender or race. Amelia will put fuel in your audience’s tank and help them fly toward success.

Mallory Brown

Among other enterprises, Mallory is currently walking a global marathon – 26 miles, in 26 countries, with 26 women. Her idea of walking a mile in someone else’s shoes makes for an inspiring, personal story, which she shares to teach others how to make a difference in the world, one step and one person at a time.

Mallory makes a wonderful female keynote speaker. Expect powerful storytelling on subjects including empathy, compassion, and empowerment. She makes better leaders and better teams within organizations.

Matt Mayberry

A former NFL linebacker (Chicago Bears) and a columnist for Entrepreneur Magazine, Matt uses his focus and drive to help his audiences develop the same. He will help anyone let go of distractions, set meaningful goals, and achieve them.

He talks about transformational leadership and how both transformation and leadership begin by understanding, changing, and mastering oneself.

Matt will provide leaders, corporate teams, and sales groups with tools for peak performance. His personal experience of being an athlete and overcoming adversity inform his storytelling. And he maintains an engaging real-world approach to helping people with motivation and mindset.

Gian Paul Gonzalez

You have probably heard of the New York Giants’ Super Bowl victory following Gian Paul Gonzalez’s famous “ALL IN” speech, which became a rallying cry. ESPN, Fox News, and CNN all jumped on the slogan. Gian Paul travels the world explaining the deeper meaning of being all in.

As one of our most popular motivational speakers, he has delivered his inspirational message to Forbes 500 corporations, government and educational institutions, and associations. He has helped the NBA, NFL, English Premier League, and Fortune 500 organizations. And he demonstrates his integrity by turning down professional basketball contracts to continue working with at-risk youth, including people in juvenile prisons.

Richard Montanez

Richard went from janitor to Vice President of Multicultural Sales & Community Promotions for PepsiCo’s North American divisions when he added some spice to Cheetos. He talks about his experience and helps young people understand the possibilities that are out there for them.

He understands limitations imposed by discrimination and conditioning in society. If you want to shake things up with a visionary leader backed by notable achievements and awards, Richard can help individuals stand out and achieve their dreams while reaching out to others within their teams and communities.

Robyn Benincasa

Former corporate sales expert Robyn has overcome many challenges in her life. With incredible experiences as a firefighter, judo practitioner, and adventure racer, she has walked the walk when it comes to pushing limits and achieving goals.

Named a CNN Hero, Robyn is a survivor with two metal hips following multiple operations. Now she offers her vast experience and drive to help organizations build teams to achieve their objectives.

Believing that business is an endurance race, she draws inspiring parallels to adventure running.

She doesn’t believe in reaching up so much as reaching out. And she draws on her considerable strengths to help people cross the finish line of success, as a team.

Amy Purdy

Amy’s dreams of traveling the world and snowboarding ended when she lost her legs due to bacterial meningitis. This interruption to her life’s course was painful but temporary. Through adversity, she has seen that her ‘limits’ – physical and mental – are not boundaries, but springboards from which stories begin.

Her story of creative imagination, determination, positive thinking, and persistence make Amy an inspiring figure. She has become a top-ranked adaptive snowboarder, the 2014 Sochi Paralympic bronze medalist, and the only world-class double-leg amputee competing in snowboarding. A very popular motivational speaker, her audiences will be moved as she shifts ideas of success and what is possible.

Mel Robbins

Mel Robbins emphasizes the difference between knowing what you need to do and doing it. If your goal is transformation – personal or organizational – Mel has the power to take you off autopilot and have you start taking actions that move you towards your goals, fast.

She has worked with global brands, helping audiences with leadership development. And she delivers engaging, motivational experiences that involve interactivity, exercises, coaching, research, actionable advice, and real-world stories.

Mel is the speaker to help your team reach its potential. As one of the world’s most popular motivational speakers, Mel gives her audiences practical tools and the power to use them immediately.

Bill Rancic

NBC’s first Apprentice, Bill Rancic is a great speaker who appears regularly on TV, including programs such as Today, The View, and Rachael Ray. He talks brilliantly about business and entrepreneurship, giving lessons that help people succeed both in business and in their personal lives.

He understands how to manage and lead teams, and appreciates the need to seize opportunities and make creative changes to get ahead. If you want your business to be more efficient and you want to know how to thrive amid chaos, Bill will help.

Any of our most popular motivational speakers will be a great asset to your organization and event. Our team is on hand to conduct a “needs analysis” to find out about your organization, your goals for the event or meeting, and the make-up of your audience.
