Motivational Speaker

Do you need a motivational and inspirational speaker? Patrick Schwerdtfeger is a leading authority on self-employment and delivers top-rated inspirational and motivational keynote speeches. He is a regular keynote speaker for Bloomberg TV and has spoken at conferences and conventions around the world.

Patrick is the author of the award-winning book Marketing Shortcuts for the Self-Employed (2011, Wiley) and studies other motivational and inspirational books including The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne and How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.

There is an important distinction between motivation and inspiration. Motivation is when the speaker encourages the audience to do what they already know they should be doing. Sales training is a great example. By contract, inspiration is when the speaker encourages attendees to do what they never thought about doing, until just now. In other words, inspiration involves new ideas where motivation generally does not. Patrick can customize his keynote programs to fit the message you would like to convey.
