Motivational Speaking

Live speaking events are the cornerstone of our method. Founder Ilene Marcus’s engaging style is equal parts Teacher, Catalyst and Entertainer. Marcus’ Motivational Speaking starts with background research to focus directly on the issues you and your teams are actively facing. Based on your input and direction we craft the presentation to build understanding, momentum and joint purpose across teams, departments and all staff bands.

Marcus’s provocative style stimulates ideas and actions. Materials provide a reference point that extends the value of the presentation long after the event. All presentations are designed specifically for each client. You receive the PowerPoint, an executive briefing on concepts and takeaways for staff to implement.

Our speeches, build understanding, momentum and joint purpose across teams, departments and all staff bands to change relationship dynamic and move your agenda forward.

​I've always classified people into three groups: those who give me energy, those who are neutral, and those who suck out all my energy.  I have never found a way to deal successfully with the energy suckers.  Ilene Marcus' nuanced book presents a fantastic and clear pathway on how to deal with these annoying people.  My only regret is that the book was not available 40 years ago.   The energy, productivity and happiness I lost would certainly have been reduced.   Kudos, for a masterful, helpful and practical approach to dealing with those people in your life who suck the oxygen out of your environment.

Selected Topics:

Do you find yourself thinking, this used to be a finely tuned machine, the same tactics aren’t producing the results they always did? That’s because Leadership training is not enough. Individual training is not enough. You can develop individuals till cows come home but that’s not going to get your team aligned and driving in the same direction. This speech will get you and your team driving fast straight forward to your agenda, priorities and goals.

Either you are already in chaos or you need to create some chaos to springboard outcomes. Far beyond spotting crisis and opportunities, this speech will show you how to make the right opportunities to fuel the change and outcomes needed in your organization. Your comfort zone will expand and so will your team cohesiveness.

Powerful Engaged Teams

Great leaders know how to align mission, resources, talent and intent to drive relevance, purpose and profits. Outstanding teamwork, doesn’t just happen. You must tend to your PETs (Powerful Engaged Teams) to get the results you desire. Building powerful cohesive teams is a step to building a better widget (whatever your widget is) and then a better world. As the boss, your key function is to keep your team on track.
