Celebrity or non celebrity?

Today’s chautauqua is about Impact.

My task was to source for a speaker that focuses on personal development. There was a ‘well-known face’ requirement to this task ie it’d be better to find someone who’s recognized by the audience. I had been struggling with this a little, until my team leader asked me for feedback regarding a popular speaker. Her question was “was his session impactful?” I think she knew that I didnt think (or more importantly, I didnt feel) that his session was impactful.

So, no more twiddling my thumbs. I spoke to someone I know who’s not a TV celebrity, but really knows his stuff. We’re talking about achieving maximum impact in the minimum amount of time. He’s spot on for the value that I believe is what the audience is looking for, based on their feedback much , much earlier. What’s in it for them, you may ask? I say, in this one hour, they will be able to reach inside themselves and hold on to something that inspires them to be positive about THEMSELVES. Hows that for impact. Heh.
