I am sure that we have all heard what we might call our favourite or best speaker. I remember listening to the former New Zealand Prime Minister, the late David Lange, at a major conference and marveling at his mastery of the spoken word, his wit, his ability to perfectly tailor his speech for the client's message and the amazing bond that he had created with his audience. I had become lost in what was no longer a speech, but an art form.

Inspirational speakers are often confused with motivational speakers. While the motivational speaker generates a call to action and usually provides strategies for self-improvement, the inspirational speaker causes their audiences to be inspired from within. The inspirational speaker will usually be an extremely high achiever, typically in business, adventure, or sport, but they can of course be from any field of human endeavour.
