Speakers Who Make an Impact
Five years, that is how long attendees should remember the message delivered by the speakers you hire. That is a speaker who has made an impact.
Recently, we here at Las Vegas Speakers Bureau had a financial conglomerate contact us about hiring a speaker who would inspire, educate and offer a significant return on investment. They never expected us to recommend a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor but that is precisely who we felt would work for the group.
Dr. Edith Eva Eger whose memoir “The Choice: Embrace the Possible” inspires with a heartbreaking story about how the Nazis sent her family to Auschwitz in 1944 when she was 16. There she endured the death camp, but sadly her parents did not survive. When American troops liberated the camps in 1945, they found young Edie.
She went on to become a psychologist and help those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress. We arranged for Dr. Eger to speak to this group during a financial meeting in California. She talked all about kindness and the importance of forgiveness. There were very serious, conservative businesspeople in the audience and they were brought to tears by Dr. Eger’s speech.
The Golden Touch
In the past, IBM celebrates its top performers through its Global Golden Circle Award, the company’s premier recognition event. We were tasked with finding a speaker for this gathering that would wow the group. Broadway Star Ben Vereen was just that speaker. He showcased five child prodigies from different parts of the world who impressed with their varied talents.
A successful speaker should stir emotion. It was Maya Angelou who said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Those are the types of speakers we recommend, those whose messages resonate deep in the souls of the audience.
An agency like Las Vegas Speakers Bureau will make sure you hire the right speaker for your group. We take our clients to new dimensions with out-of-the- norm speakers who create memorable experiences
Dewitt Jones does just that. A famed National Geographic photographer, he shares a story about a hula troop from the tiny island of Molokai. He shows a still photo of these beautiful girls, and to the delight of the audience, they appear on stage bringing the image to life. Dewitt joins them, and he urges the audience to “Dare to Dance” in their lives and careers. That’s what we are all about at Las Vegas Speakers Bureau, daring to dance.
