Do you know how to make the best use of a Motivational Speaker?
When is a motivational speaker most effective? As part of a structured approach to team building/development. A good idea is to use a motivational speaker at one of a regular series of meetings or training events. For example you might have a motivational speaker at one event in three or involve a motivational speaker in tandem with more formal training. It is also a good idea to draw motivational speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Whilst it can be inspring to have a famous name and/or someone who has climbed a mountain or crossed an ocean on a tea tray above all it is vital to have a motivational speaker that your delegates can relate to.
It is very important to have a clear objective for your audience and to ensure your speaker fully understand this. What do you want the speaker to do? e.g. talk about taking responsiblity in the work place, providing clear leadership to a team or business development techniques? Do your research and take the time to talk to a number of speakers before making a final decision.

19 August 2010
Safe and Sound at Work- “Do Your Bit” campaign and training interventions.
I am writing to you in relation to HSE’s GB wide campaign to communicate the benefits of worker involvement in health and safety to organisations and in recognition of your significant contribution that has driven marketing and recruitment activities, despite this being a period of political change that has presented many new challenges to say the least.
This work is a key tenet of HSE’s new strategy and without your knowledge, skills, professionalism and commitment I have no doubt we would have not had the success we have had to date. The strategic marketing plan you developed for the tender stage, and that you ensured was implemented following the award of the contract, has been a fundamental element in helping us to achieve our objectives to date.
HSE and my colleagues appreciate the personal drive and effort you have brought to this project, and I would like to thank you on behalf of everyone involved for a job extremely well done and you leave us in an excellent position to achieve our objectives.
On a more personal level, I have really enjoyed working with you over the last year and your input and support has been first class.
Finally, I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you every success in your next project and again for assisting in the promotion of an important government initiative that I am assured is making a difference to the health and safety of many workers in high risk industries.

Business Development Experts Strategy for the HSE
On behalf of his client Premier Partnership Business Development Expert and Motivational Speaker Terry Ryan has devised and implemented a Sales and Marketing Strategy for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for a national campaign.
Bosses are being encouraged to get their employees more involved in health and safety in a bid to reduce injury and ill health.
The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) new campaign ‘do your bit’ is in response to workplace research which provides evidence to suggest that involving workers has a positive effect on health and safety performance.
The ‘do your bit’ campaign is a year long initiative offering free or subsidised training courses to help businesses get their employees more involved in improving their health and safety.
To support the campaign, HSE has launched a new website which provides practical advice and materials for businesses and details of the upcoming series of training opportunities. In addition, it features first hand accounts from businesses who are already reaping the rewards from actively involving workers in health and safety.
Judith Hackitt, Chair of HSE, said: “Where businesses have good workforce involvement they also often achieve better performance in health and safety and experience better productivity because their staff are motivated and feel engaged in the organisation.”
HSE is aiming the campaign and subsidised training for new potential health and safety representatives at the construction, manufacturing, transport and motor vehicle repair sectors.
Any organisations seeking to improve on their existing consultation and worker involvement arrangements can express their interest in a fully funded training package.
Organisations can register for either of the above offers of training at www.hse.gov.uk/doyourbit see also www.premier-partnership.co.uk Terry Ryan can be contacted on 0845 459 3417
