The Philosophy of Motivational Speaker
Eileen McDargh

Dear Colleague,

This is my philosophy...

"To fill the unforgiving minute with 60 seconds worth of distance run." Kipling wrote it. I believe it. When I use an audience's time, I take the single most precious resource they have and one that is non-renewable. They must walk away feeling the time was more-than-well spent.

I try and live in the world of my client, speak their language, understand their anxieties and their hopes. Everything is contextual. With that as a key-underpinning, my programs all serve to leave people thinking about the possibilities and power they hold inside: power to lead, power to design a life of their choosing, power to recognize the possibilities for a higher level of human interaction, and power to ultimately believe that their presence on this earth makes a difference.

I believe in the wisdom of my audience and that my job is to help them reconnect with that wisdom. By using humor, fun, meaningful interaction, up-to-the-minute ideas derived from current business, and by being a solid storyteller and actor of the human experiences we all share, people discover their own wisdom.

No program is ever quite the same because no audience is the same. The value is that everyone in the audience will walk away with not only having heard the words but knowing what to do with the words through my actions, my caring and follow-through. It's my commitment.

Besides, it's the only way I know how to do business.


  • As a meeting planner, I was so surprised and excited by your ability to become part of a very complex and highly demanding group. While you were speaking, I felt like you had known the audience for a long period of time because you connected with them so well!"
