Inspirational Resilience Speakers

By Platinum Speakers + Entertainers


When running a speakers bureau it is a privilege to work in an industry where you encounter incredible people who inspire and achieve through incredible circumstances. They experience adversity through absolute no fault of their own and some are challenged from the day they are born or the environment they are raised. Some choose to set a goal, overcome an obstacle never achieved while others are threatened in a split second moment that determines life and death.


There are many ways in which people face adversity in their lives however it is the very few who not only rise above that challenge, they actually thrive and achieve a pinnacle that sets them apart.


So what is resilience? Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma or tragedy, the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties or toughness. Resilience can be measured when physically challenged however more so gives people the psychological strength to cope with stress and hardship. Something with which is an ongoing process that requires time and effort and engages people in taking a number of steps.


The experience and skill of a professional keynote speaker who can share their personal experience, recount the adversity and translate it into a positive and empowering message on stage to inspire an audience is underestimated. It takes courage, passion and emotion in a presentation to engage and bring the audience on your journey then instil the same positivity to then action and improve the circumstances in their own lives. Invariably the message of resilience delivered by the speaker is that anyone is capable of achieving their own goals against the odds, be resolute and resilient in the face of adversity.


The audience will be empowered to survive, rise and thrive in difficult circumstances. It is therefore considered some of the most effective motivational and inspirational speakers are those who are resilient under the most trying circumstances and to not only recover or succeed but excel.
