It is said that humans go through a “loss curve” at times of immense change and everyone reacts differently. That’s why businesses and individuals facing change situations must manage expectations carefully. This is what John McCarthy had to do every day in tiny prison cells at the mercy of cruel jailers with cruel tactics when he was incarcerated for 1,943 days in dreadful prison conditions.

As a business speaker John builds into his presentations details of his experiences in prison. He also explains why freedom wasn’t much better at first. He tells why encounters with the media and public were challenging and why being released from jail made him feel a prisoner of a different kind. Taking charge of his situation and having a goal was essential.

The term ‘motivational speaker’ covers a broad spectrum of speakers with one common aim: to inspire and motivate the audience.   Many are experts within their own field but many are people who have overcome adversity.   Not all of us can win gold medals or climb mountains but in life you never know what life is going to throw at you.  Great motivational speakers can inspire people to improve their personal life as well as at work.

Motivational speakers are often booked by companies who want their staff to be self motivated and have that will to win.   The speakers have had life changing experiences – often through no fault of their own – but instead of feeling sorry for themselves have found that inner strength to go on to huge achievements

We work with many such speakers,  John McCarthy, Simon Weston, Liz Jackson to name but a few – all of whom leave their audience inspired.
