Motivational Speaker

Motivational Speaker Behind the Scenes

Every motivational speaker has great points and content. I’m no exception. The question you must ask yourself when looking at motivational speakers for your event, is “Will this speaker be a fit for my group and will they connect with my audience?” To help you see who it is you are hiring when you consider me for your next event I’ve linked to a ‘behind the scenes’ video of me speaking at a womens’ health event. I think it does a pretty good job of showing who you’re getting when you hire “motivational speaker Kelly Swanson“.

There are plenty of videos (on this site and on Youtube) that will show you the funny side of what I do. This video shows you the “heart” side of what I do. And, no, I don’t just do women’s audiences. Just so happens that this audience was mostly women. Head over to the “video sampler” page under “See/Hear” to see funny stuff, tributes, and story samples.

Motivational Speaker Brings Fresh Perspective

Motivational speaker Kelly Swanson explains how she impacts audiences

  • Looking for an unforgettable keynote to open or close your conference?
  • Is your group in desperate need of some motivation?
  • Want to offer attendees something they are excited to come see?
  • Have you realized the impact a motivational speaker has on your event?
  • Need a draw to get people to your community event?
  • Have you learned that FUNNY Sells?
  • Looking for a speaker that will make you look like a rock star?
  • Need something more dramatic to balance out all the content-heavy sessions?
  • Looking for something fresh and different?

If you said yes to any of these questions, then you need me. Motivational speaker, comedian, and storyteller Kelly Swanson.  I’m the author of “Who Hijacked My Fairy Tale?”

I understand the importance of delivering an unforgettable keynote experience. That’s why I write every program like a show – to fit your audience and the challenges you face. If you think motivational speakers are fluff, then you haven’t met me. I truly know the art of motivating your audience, and then teaching them to motivate themselves and others – to change their attitude and change their behavior so they can Stand Up and Stick Out In a Crowded Market. My audiences walk away feeling like they can take on the world – with a renewed passion for their ability to get from where they are stuck to where they want to be.

You work hard to provide information for your attendees that will empower them – now let me show them how to take this information and make it part of their attitude and behavior. How am I different? Unlike other motivational speakers, I write the content in the form of a one-woman show, believing that you can learn and be entertained at the same time. Whether I’m singing a silly song about fairy tales, chanting about being a mom, turning your company’s goals into a cheer, or taking you to Prides Hollow to meet the beloved characters of my fictitious town, you are in for a treat as I work my creative magic. I’m a bundle of wacky high energy – burning a trail of laughter and encouragement wherever I go. And I believe my job begins when I step onto the parking lot, not just onto the stage. I take the time to get to know your people – even if that means sitting in the lobby and continuing the conversation. I am accessible and takes my role as an encourager and motivator seriously.

Will I customize? Yes, yes, and double yes! It starts with the show I write for you – taking your challenges and accomplishments and weaving them in – including a tribute written just for your profession – choosing just the right stories, comedy, topic, and creative flair to fit your event and your group. I will even help you promote your event – with press releases, social media advertising, appearances on local TV and radio, and event promotion videos.

Can I handle big groups? You bet! Those are my favorite. But I will put just as much work into small events too – believing that motivation can come in all sizes. I also do breakout and training sessions in addition to the keynote. I am an earth shattering addition to any conference looking for humor, motivation, and a powerful message – whether you have me open, close, or even deliver mini sessions throughout the event to spread the humor and energy throughout the time you are there together. Ask me about the time I wrote a one-woman show in four acts and delivered it over the course of a three day conference. It was a resounding HIT!

Don’t miss this chance to bring an hilarious and encouraging motivational speaker to your event. You’ll be glad you did!

Kelly Swanson is a gem among storytellers. Her unique style, her wonderful effervescence, and her skill in bringing memorable characters to life provide a storytelling experience that is like no other… I defy anyone to come away from a session with Kelly and not feel transformed by the experience.
