Famous Motivational Speakers: Using Humor to Empower

SpeakerMotivational speakers are getting more famous by the day. They give speeches about work and anything about how to move past the challenges of life.

Here are a few famous motivational speakers known for their humor:

Charles Marshall

This comedian has been a motivational speaker since 1991. He is famous for providing speeches for corporate affairs. His clean humor has made him one of the notable speakers of his generation.

He published Shattering the Glass Slipper, which talks about how anyone who works hard and uses the Seven Powers can be successful. He also established the M Power Resources, a company that devotes itself to helping people.

Brad Montgomery

Another famous keynote speaker is Brad Montgomery from Colorado. He speaks mainly about being happy, and how keeping this attitude will affect one’s life, especially at work. Aside from humor, he uses other aids like illustrations and music to keep the life of the meeting (or party) going.

He is a Certified Speaking Professional. He has also published two books, which has sold over 100,000 copies. His clientele includes Verizon, Microsoft, the CIA, and the FBI.

Billy Riggs

Dubbed as “The Dr. Phil of Magic,” Billy Riggs is among America’s Top 5 Most Entertaining Speakers of 2014. He has been wowing his audiences with humor since he was 18 years old. At 22, he was already giving speeches to over 15, 000 people. Just like Montgomery, he is a Certified Speaking Professional by the National Speakers Association.

His commitment to his profession is unquestionable, as he has not skipped any of the events he was invited to. A cancelled flight did not stop him from going to Philadelphia for a promised speech. He drove from Chicago to Indianapolis to be on a flight going to Philadelphia.

These three motivational speakers go beyond the standards to deliver empowering speeches. They use their craft to give meaning to what people usually see as ordinary.
