Planning a conference or a speaker event can be a challenge, but with the correct and prepared planning, it can create a once in a lifetime experience. When engaging and hiring a speaker for your event, a lot more goes into the process beyond getting the speaker to confirm. Months and months of planning are required to create a stellar and unforgettable event.
Reaching one’s true and desired potential is something everyone strives to accomplish. The hardest steps to take to reach it, are the first. Once you get going, the easier it is to stick with it and keep working. Some just need that initial push and a nudge in the right direction.

A truly great motivational speaker has an enormous impact on the millions of lives they encounter, no matter what their personal situation may be. They enchant their audience and motivate them to act in a new and better way. Motivational speakers help others visualize a path to success, help them trail that path and actually achieve success. Their words are powerful and inspirational, and their stories and passion can inspire others to fulfill goals and dreams that they otherwise would have never done on their own.

It was a weekend to remember. First, I spent Friday and Saturday back on ol’ Rocky Top for our University of Tennessee Army ROTC Hall of Fame Dinner and reunion. The goal is to have it coincide with Veterans Day weekend. Friday morning, we old guys braved a cool wet morning and ran 2.5 miles with the University of Tennessee Army ROTC Cadets. They said it would be a 10-minute mile pace – yea right. But how exhilarating to be able to run with those young men and women carrying on the legacy of the original Company of Infantry Dragoons that left the campus and volunteered to answer the call to arms in the Mexican War.

The National Post was a disruptive proposition 20 years ago. In the commendations and celebrations that are marking its anniversary, this should not be lost. The newspaper’s founding insight was that a significant number of Canadians were yearning for a different media perspective — one rooted in a more conservative worldview.
