Working in a fast-paced business environment means that being organised, innovative and able to comprehensively deal with setbacks, are vital qualities that are required to achieve success in any company.

Many of the most famous and successful business people in the world possess these traits which also make them ideal for motivational speaking engagements.

The Motivational Speakers Agency has a database of over 1500 world-class speakers, including some of the biggest named business professionals on the circuit, whose fascinating stories of success can take your employees from good to great.

Innovation & Creativity

If a businessperson cannot innovate then they will be left behind by their market. Corporate teams must nurture innovation and creativity, as these skills define a company’s ability to adapt and overcome challenges.

A thought leader within this field is Duncan Wardle. He is best known as the former Vice President of Innovation & Creativity at Disney, a role in which Duncan sent Buzz Lightyear into space to promote Toy Story 4 in 2008. With an eye for magic opportunities, as a speaker, Duncan instils in audiences the importance of innovation for business performance and profitability.

An event featuring Duncan will have a resounding impact on attendees. He leaves guests with a newfound passion for innovation, having learned the importance of investing in creativity audiences will be able to translate his wisdom to their business.

Time Management

Time efficiency is an essential skill for a successful career and a key topic that our speakers can discuss. Being able to instil structure and organisation into the working day ensures that optimum productivity can be achieved, incredibly important in a business environment.

Take entrepreneur Michelle Mone. The lingerie juggernaut is the face of one of the largest underwear companies on the planet and without efficiency in her work, the success she achieved would not have been possible.

Finding herself redundant in her early 20s, she had the idea for the Ultimo bra which has gone on to dominate the industry. This would not have been possible if Michelle was unable to prioritise the most important tasks and manage her time, a reflection of the expertise she can supply events. Michelle leaves audiences with a new perspective of the skill organisation, and how it applies to their businesses.


Teamwork is another aspect of business that can make or break a company. It is impossible to achieve high levels of industry success as an individual, so being able to work with others and have a strong team behind you is fundamental.

Former Dragon’s Den star James Caan has worked in business for over three decades and his multi-million-pound recruitment company is built on a good team ethic and being able to effectively work with a variety of different people.

In every part of people’s professional lives, working alongside their colleagues or clients will be a requirement. Therefore, hiring a motivational speaker who can demonstrate this importance and suggest team-building exercises will help your company work more cohesively and increase profits.
