Tom Morris- Motivational Speaker

7 Programs By This Presenter

We all need ideas we can trust—ideas that have stood the test of time and can help us achieve success in even the most demanding situations. Tom Morris has an unprecedented ability to bring together the wisdom of the ages in a form that people can use right now. This talk presents a simple, powerful and complete framework of seven universal conditions for deeply satisfying, sustainable excellence in all that we do.

When you take good care of your people, your people take good care of your customers, and your customers take good care of you. The key to it all is a winning culture. So: What creates a great organizational culture? What guides and motivates us to bring our best to every challenge and work powerfully with others every day? Tom Morris shows that the answers to these questions are simple, profound, and transformational.

Over many centuries of the human adventure, the quest of the alchemist was to take something ordinary and create out of it something truly extraordinary. There is nothing in our time more ordinary now than the rapid pace of tumultuous change that we increasingly face in so many ways.

Difficult change comes our way on a regular basis these days. And we have an old saying about how to deal with it: “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” For decades, people have said this, but no one explains how to do it. The great philosophers did. In this highly entertaining and engaging talk, Tom Morris will equip you and all your associates to be expert lemonade makers! Some clients have themed their entire meeting around this topic and have served great lemonade during the break!

There are conditions in which creativity flourishes, and alternative situations in which it’s almost impossible and disappears. The culture of your company makes all the difference as to whether you will be a hotbed of innovation, or a place where anxiety, habit, and inertia rule. Tom Morris draws on the wisdom of the ages in a way that only he can do, to provide you with a simple map to a powerfully innovative culture.

What were his secrets? How can we learn from one of the most unlikely and expansive success stories ever? Philosopher Tom Morris digs deep into the myth, mess, and magic of Steve Jobs and provides, in 45 minutes, or 60, a revolutionary, practical look at what we can adapt from the strange, charismatic, and compelling character who basically invented the connected life we all now live. Starting in his parents’ garage, Jobs built, in his lifetime, the world’s most valuable company. How did he do it? And what can we all do to emulate the best of his practices? Using great humor, memorable stories, and a level of passionate energy that carries on the legacy of Jobs himself, Tom will mesmerize your group and provide the highlight of your meeting.

We’ve all heard the old saying: When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. But no one ever says how to do this. Finally, with the help of the great philosophers, Tom figured it out. And just in time, since life is now handing us truckloads and mountains of lemons!

When a major American corporation recently began to go through a period of tumultuous change, top executives knew they had a problem on their hands – How could they keep people focused and upbeat during a very challenging time, while rumors were flying and everyone seemed worried?  But they also had an ideal solution. They turned to their favorite philosopher and invited him to create a special talk on how to handle change. The natural reaction of the 750 executives and top managers asked to sit and listen to a talk on this topic, in the midst of their daunting situation, might have been suspicion or genuine cynicism. But Tom won them over completely from the first minute, and gave them an hour of wisdom they could use immediately, delivered in a penetrating and yet humorous way, that drew nothing but rave reviews from everyone present.

You’re going through major change in your business right now, no matter what it is. Your industry is likely changing. No one can predict the near future. How are people reacting to the new challenges that are coming their way? Is everyone worried, or confused, and negative?

Tom has put together a very wise, engaging, cutting edge, and entertaining presentation on making the most of disruptive change. Too many people instinctively become anxious, defensive, and even angry about any big and difficult changes they face at work and in their lives. Tom draws on the wisdom of the ages to reverse our common emotions about all this, and he shows clearly how even unsought and disruptive change can be a precondition for growth, extraordinary accomplishment, and even the most unexpected thing, happiness in our lives.

Here’s the feedback from the executive who ran the meeting where Tom first gave this presentation, written ten days after the event:

“Tom: You did an outstanding job!! You are the talk of the company right now. I have received numerous calls from other divisions/sectors who heard through the grapevine what a great job you did. Your presentation has made a significant impact on the officers in our sector. We greatly appreciate all of the time and effort you put into making your talk the perfect fit for our audience. I look forward to working with you again in the future.” –  Kelly

Tom has gone on to do this talk for numerous companies and trade associations, and always to great results. It is now the basis for his new nonfiction book of the same title.

Bring the wisdom of the ages,with a dose of good energy into your organization now. Invite Tom to give a zoom, or more than one, on change. You’ll be amazed at the positive changes you see as a result!


“You were a BIG HIT! I can’t thank you enough for your energy, the time you took to make sure your message was on topic for our client’s needs and most importantly, the generosity of spirit with which you delivered it all. We will certainly look forward to another opportunity to recommend you to others.”

“Absolutely amazing – a home run! The energy he displayed was phenomenal. He was able to conclude closing session with a positive, humorous, but serious conversation that left everyone in a good spot. Many in the room approached me and said at first they were a little skeptical, but were pleasantly surprised. A few stayed behind to speak with him personally and have his email for personal correspondence. Thank you for the recommendation, I would use him again and strongly recommend Tom!”

— GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals

“Tom, I want to thank you again for the fine talk you gave at our global leadership conference. Your command of the material, insights, humor and intellect were the talk of the meeting and awards banquet.”
