There’s more to inspiring people than standing on a podium and shouting useless clichés at them. Genuine motivation comes from a blend of revelation and practical understanding.
Tracy Bartram approaches this task in a very personal way. She’s a comedian, yes. But pursuing comedy was, for her, like tunnelling under a prison wall to freedom. A bleak childhood left her with little self-esteem and less self-confidence. She gained her infectious enthusiasm for life through sheer force of will, and that experience provides some genuine insights that are worth hearing.
In arriving at her own new life, Tracy has soaked up a wide variety of international wisdom in the areas of self-improvement and effective work practices, and she delivers it all with distinctive Bartram humour. Her lively 45-minute addresses begin with her own story, then move onto several specific pieces of advice.
She looks at beliefs, and how they rule our lives - both positively and negatively. She looks at changing our language to focus on the positive, how praise can change your life. Similarly, she covers one of her favourite crusades: eradicating "constructive criticism". And how to make every experience - even buying a newspaper - a positive one.
In a talk which is well researched and tailored to your specific needs, Tracy can deal with time management, taking the boredom out of goal setting, trusting your instincts and pretty much anything you want to get across to your staff. She also discusses integrity and its place in the modern workforce.
After the address, Tracy opens the floor to questions, allowing her audience to dig deeper and explore the issues.
At the very least, a Tracy Bartram address will leave your employees feeling a lot happier than when they arrived. But there’s also a good chance that they’ll see the world, and themselves, in a whole new light.
