Keynote and Motivational Speeches

I am the happiest when I am on stage doing a keynote presentation and everyone in the audience is leaning towards me. Everyone is captivated waiting for the next insight that could be a game-changer for themselves or their organization.

I always start my motivational speeches with a riveting story of transformation. No introduction, no background. You are right in the middle of a compelling situation.

It’s like turning on a TV and finding yourself right in the middle of the most exciting part of a movie. You have to know who these people are and what’s going to happen next. You went from zero to being riveted in a few seconds.

That’s what I want when I take command of a room.

My philosophy when presenting is to accomplish these goals:

  • Grab the audience by the throat from the first minute of the presentation and never let go
  • Give them powerful insights that they can’t wait to go home a share with their spouse. “Honey, you won’t believe what a learned today”
  • Be entertaining so they have a great time learning (and invite me back)
  • Make everyone in the audience feel like I am having an intimate conversation with them
  • Most of all, I want them to know they can break through any barrier that is holding them or their organization back
  • I have done keynote speeches at conferences in 14 countries. No matter where in the world you go people want to know, how can I get my employees and teams to break through their limitations so they deliver exceptional results.

Talk #1 – Neuroscience approach to building a more powerful mindset

Umar Hameed Keynote Speaker NLP

Have you wondered what separates A-players from the B-players in a sales organization? A-players are few but generate a lot of sales. B-players know how to sell. They do a good job but never achieve greatness.

The paradox is that most B players want to get better. Their sales managers spend a lot of time and money to help B players get better. But most B players never make the jump.

In this presentation, I share applied neuroscience and NLP strategies that help salespeople, leaders and mere mortals’ breakthrough their limitations so they become awesomer. These bolder salespeople have more passion, tenacity, and drive resulting in more deals being closed. Imagine the impact on your organization if 20% of the B-players became A-players. It would be huge, right?

You will learn:

  • How to harness your crazy sexy brain
  • How to overcome fear and reluctance
  • What really drives human behavior?
  • How to get unstuck and improve your performance today

Talk #2 – Neuroscience approach to building stronger teams

Are you leaving 30% - 50% of your productivity unrealized?

Research proves that dysfunctional teams reduce productivity by 30%-50% because of office politics, ego, and selfishness. In America, we spend $100B a year to fix this problem with a 70% failure rate.

In this presentation, you will learn Applied Neuroscience strategies to transform average teams into exceptional ones. Teams where individuals go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the organization wins. This transformation changes the culture of the organization so people realize, it is not about me or my department. It’s about what I need to do to help my team out-think and outpace the competition. 

You will learn:

  • How to inspire people to go beyond their limitations
  • How to get team members to become unselfish in their actions
  • How to build an unstoppable culture of achievement
  • How to get everyone on the same page going in the same direction

Talk #3 - How to become the world’s best listener

Hear what people are really saying. Listening is one of the most important skills you can have. How well you listen has a major impact on your job effectiveness, your sales, and on the quality of your relationships.

Most of us think we are good listeners but research proves that we are not. We only remember about 50 percent of what we hear. That means that when you talk to your clients, boss, colleagues, or spouse you only pay attention to less than half of the conversation.

By becoming a better listener, you can improve your productivity, close more deals, as well as your ability to influence, persuade and negotiate with others. What's more, you'll avoid conflict and misunderstandings. Being a great listener is a critical skill in sales, leadership, and life.

In this presentation, you will learn simple techniques to be fully present in all of your conversations. More importantly, the people you interact with will feel a stronger connection with you leading to a higher degree of trust.

You will learn:

  • How to be fully present in conversations 
  • How to build trust within minutes
  • How to uncover hidden issues when interacting with others
  • How to communicate your ideas more powerfully

Talk #4 - Killer presentation skills

Your presentation skills are just as important as the information you are presenting. Presenting information clearly and effectively is a key skill in getting your message across. More importantly, you need to be able to move your audience into taking the action you want them to take.

Great presenters can suspend reality for their audience so they go on a journey with them. This allows them to install an idea into the heads of their audience. Amp-up their emotions so they feel compelled to implement your idea.

In this presentation, you will learn elegant ways to put the audience under your spell so they get the message you are conveying.

You will learn:

  • How to structure a winning presentation
  • How to connect with the audience
  • How to influence the audience
  • How to amp-up your stage presence

Testimonials

Better Sales Performance

I've worked with Umar Hameed for many years, he's nothing short of amazing. Recently I had Umar present at our weekly team meeting, then do 1:1 sessions with several of our sales people. Each of the sales people really benefited from the coaching, and most reported some sort of breakthrough (which is what I was going for)!

Umar has a very non-invasive process to engage, is very flexible in his approach, and agile in his delivery and implementation. He cares a lot about the outcome, and is willing to put in the time and effort required to achieve the goal. As a sales leader Umar will interview you to learn about your team, what you see as the challenges, and what changes you're looking to impact. His process is painless and actually quite enjoyable. I highly recommend Umar, he's s true pro.

My team loved the presentation!

Umar put together a Success Mindset Workshop for our company. My team loved the presentation, thought it was incredibly helpful not just for their professional careers but for their personal lives too. The tips/tricks he shared are powerful ways to help motivate your team to become even better versions of themselves. I'd recommend Umar for your next employee development workshop.

Umar conducted a retreat for my organization, and he did a fantastic job! I was especially impressed with the amount of work he put into it ahead of the retreat date - he took the time to learn about our organization, as well as each of the employees, so that the actual day was as productive as possible. He was engaging and insightful, and he made everyone feel comfortable to contribute. We left as a unified group, excited to make the changes necessary to grow and improve our work!

Great Presention

Umar, rarely have I seen a group of professionals so attentive and responsive as you really hit a "home run" with our first inaugural young professionals event.
I looked around the room and I can tell you that every guest was completely engaged with your speaking.
A big high five to you again, and many thanks!

The Umar Effect Lasts For years

I hired Umar on several occasions to work with my staff. The first time occurred because I needed assistance to help the staff work through a major change within the organization. He was engaging and effective in his delivery before a large group and was equally effective when working one-to-one. Years after his presentation, staff recall snippets of his work, referred affectionately as the "Umar effect." I have referred him to other organizations and they too have experienced similar results when he worked with them.

Fascinating Presentation!

Umar was our keynote speaker at a recent VISTAGE meeting. His presentation regarding mindset and success was fascinating. Understanding how beliefs so strongly influence human behavior will be game changing for my organizational and personal life. Umar gives you usable techniques that you can implement immediately. Any speaker that empowers his audience to the point that they are breaking boards at the end of the session, has something important to say!

Think Beyond Your Limitations

Umar is a high level trainer/coach/mentor who provided my business partner and I with massive value in our workshop and meetings. I would highly recommend Umar to anyone looking to grow their mindset, their business, and take the steps necessary to get to the next level. Extremely valuable self-discovery and goal planning combined with training your mind to think beyond your previous self-imposed limitations make Umar's program unlike any others. He is a great guy with a true desire to help!

Unlocked My Inner Ninja!

Umar helped me unlock my inner ninja! Most sales coaches teach affirmations, visualization, and scripts to help you become more comfortable in overcoming the common fears to become a successful salesperson. What those coaches don't realize is that every person's thoughts are different, and most of those thoughts stem from a belief we learned in our past. Umar has an incredible ability to help you discover what's truly preventing you from becoming your best self. This workshop isn't just for the sales professional. It's for the team leader, who is struggling to hold team members accountable. It's for the admin, who is afraid to ask for help. It's for the employee who works 60+ hours a week because she struggles to manage her time. This workshop is hands-down the best money you can spend on corporate training. You WILL see immediate results!
