Fee Range: B
"Mick the Demotivational Speaker" is 20-25 minutes of safe, hilarious workplace comedy, carefully tailored for your audience.
He is not only outstanding entertainment, he can be used as a humorous way to celebrate your successes, recognize key people or communicate or reinforce important messages.
"Mick" has been a huge hit across the country for builders, miners, bankers, insurers, nurses, surgeons, high school teachers, public servants, dermatologists, midwives, engineers, cops, accountants, geologists and electricians, just to name a few.
What are "Mick"s needs? He is a simple man. All he needs to present is:
A microphone in a stand
A raised stage to be seen
A seated audience
We also ask that meals are not served, consumed or cleared during the presentation.
How does "Mick" work?
To prepare, we send you a list of ten questions and use your answers for "Mick's" inside information.
We do our own research and draw on what we've learned working with similar fields or industries.
You'll be given an introduction to read for "Mick" and he'll come staggering in halfway through it. He will explain the benefits of lowering the bar as "success is too hard to maintain -- while mediocrity maintains itself". He will then apply his "Seven Magic Steps for Suppressing Your Potential". As funny and likeable as he is, people soon decide that they don't really want to be lazy and mediocre like this guy.
It's a fantastic way to look at motivation and long-term success with humour and genuine insight.
NOTE: It's not a bad idea to warn the function staff that "Mick" is coming -- more than once, people have tried to throw him out before he can get to the lectern!
