Default Looking For a Guest Speaker

I have a sales meeting next July in Las Vegas that I need to book a guest speaker for. This year, we had World Series champ and MLB Network host Kevin Millar.

I'm looking for a guest speaker that can talk about overcoming odds, tips for success, working as a team, etc.

If you guys have any contacts with any celebrities, motivational speakers, athletes, etc. Please let me know.

We will work at payment and travel details.

TIA!

He seems like he'd be a good fit. Our sales group is mainly young guys, a lot of former athletes.

Do you have contact info for Walt? If so, would you please PM me?

I have been able to hear lots of speakers over the years with the company I work for. If you can make it happen, without a doubt the best I have had the honor to listen to is Bill Courtney.

You probably have no idea who he is, check out the Documentary "Undefeated" and the Book "Against the Grain"

Richard Pimentel is the best, and most profound speaker I've ever heard, and I've heard a bunch of them:

http://www.miltwright.com/_richard_pimentel/index.htm

You can do a You Tube search and listen to some of his videos. He's a very funny guy, and you won't forget the things he shares with you.

Good luck,

Dave

Not sure what your budget is. We had an Ex Navy Seal come in and speak to our team - covered the importance of building a team, how to build a team, support it, etc. Very good session. I am told he was <>$12K for the session. I am trying to find name / contact information. However, I will cease that effort if it is outside the budget. KJ

I hire a couple a year. What is your budget? I've hired Frank Abignal who was amazing Aron Ralston, Marcus Luttrell and so on. Aron was amazing and a good cost. I bought 700 books and literally signed them for hours.

I’ve heard Ryan Fitzpatrick is a good speaker. Also heard Keni Thomas is good, I think he survived a military confrontation that Blackhawk Down, the movie was based on.

If your budget is at least $500,000 you can probably get one or even both of the Clintons. Who better to talk about overcoming adversity, winning at all cost, and simply making problems disappear?

I hired him. Intense dude. I had a bunch of executives in green room with him and probably said 5 words. You can see in his eyes he has been through hell and back.

I once heard Rick Rigsby tell Dave South that its a shame God gave a white man such a voice. I've been disenchanted with him ever since.

I had the privilege of hearing this man speak, and it was moving and inspiring. His name is Shilo Harris, and I believe resides in San Antonio. His story is amazing and 9-11 sparked his desire to fight for his country. Name:  IMG_2363.jpg
