Motivational Speakers: Bringing Back the Hope

Nov 18th 2014 at 4:23 AM

If you are a school administrator or teacher wondering if you need a professional speaker for your next assembly, the simple answer is yes. Many schools now see the value of hiring motivational youth speakers, and it’s time you did, too.

Motivational speakers are often more effective communicators of ideas. Students sometimes tire of hearing from their teachers, but respond really well to a fresh perspective that an outsider brings in. Expert youth speakers can address specific problems and issues, including leadership, bullying, overcoming obstacles, drugs and alcohol, and many other concerns. They are also masters at getting—and keeping—the interest of teenagers who are notorious for their short attention spans. If you find that the student body is bored with the usual assembly setups, it may be time to bring someone from outside.

A good youth speaker can cover a wide variety of topics, but most speakers have their own specialty. The most effective ones share their personal stories and present information in new and refreshing ways that appeal to students. Enlisting the help of motivational speaker for your school assembly is an excellent way to engage your students and get them excited about a new lecture.

You might be wondering: What topics do motivational speakers for teens usually cover? That depends on who you hire. You will be able to find a speaker to dispense advice on virtually any topic—from school work to future careers and even dating. A good speaker can also motivate your students to accomplish more and achieve their dreams. Here are just a few of the most common topics covered in high school motivational talks:

•    Making smarter choices
•    How to (get and stay) motivated
•    Overcoming adversity
•    Dating safety
•    Practical solutions for bullying
•    How to positively influence your peers
•    Anti-drug and anti-smoking
•    Team building activities
•    Being a winner
•    Planning for college
•    Saving the World
•    Positive thinking
•    Breaking bad habits
•    Building confidence

Students (especially teens) are inclined towards listening to speakers who do not only bring a positive message, but also empowerment, encouragement, and a refreshing no B.S. approach to issues and concerns they are dealing with at this stage in their lives.

Hiring the right motivational youth speaker can truly take a lot off your plate as a school guidance counsellor or teacher. The speaker is an expert in motivating teens in particular, and will know exactly what to do and say to inspire your students. This allows you to focus on other important tasks that need to be accomplished in running the school.
