    Any recommendations on someone we could have come speak to our management team that would be motivational? Each year we do a leadership training summit and we like to wrap it up with a motivational speaker of some sort (i.e. Navy Seal, an entrepreneur, corporate leadership trainers, etc.). Usually we are looking for lots of good stories focused on team work and being your best self. But really we just want something that is uplifiting and positive to break up a day of corporate training. Any recommendations are appreciated.

    ​Excellent idea !! I know you are probably looking for a name of a person. That I don't have, however, the approach we take is mostly networking locally and regionally. A sports figure or a local tv personality that is a friend of a friend. We reach out to our business partners and many of them have been to meetings, training conferences etc and have heard a guy/gal present. Best to you in your quest !!

    Hey Brian;

    Will you be atteding the Annual Conference June 1-5? You might check out some of the speakers in the Leadership track for ideas. Also, several of the CFMA Regional Conferences feature the type of speakers you mentioned being interested in, so you could check the regional conference websites for possible speakers. Not sure what your budget is (if any), because that will be a consideration.

    We had John Choate who is a retired Navy Seal come and speak to our annual safety and management meeting a couple of years ago. Very entertaining and great leadership lessons from the Seals. I would highly recommend him.

    There are SO many, but one that is really good is "Antarctic Mike" - Mike Pierce.  He is SO good and the book he references "Shackleton's Way' is one of the best business books I ever read. This is his website: https://antarcticmike.com/    I don't think you will be disappointed!

    I highly recommend Phil Van Hooser (https://www.leadersoughttoknow.com/).  He was a speaker at the National Electrical Contractors Association convention a couple of years ago, and since then we've been following him through his video series.  He has great insights and experiences to share.

    John Foley, a former Navy Fighter Pilot and Blue Angel, delivers a great leadership and teamwork keynote.   https://www.gladtobehere.com/

    PURPOSE Our ability to deliver extraordinary results is driven by a belief in ideas and ideals bigger than ourselves. Achieving the highest levels of performance requires powerful belief not only in oneself, but in one's team, in the part one plays in the bigger picture, and in something outside of oneself that inspires greatness.
