Interview with Eilidh Milnes

How are your talks typically received by audiences?

Exceptionally well; with enthusiasm and laughter. The delegates enjoy the way I weave in stories, activities and reflection points.  One organiser, Sharon Flowers commented, “Your results are amazing 9.08 out of 10 – the highest score we’ve ever had.”

How would you describe yourself and your speaking?

I’m spontaneous, engaging and energetic. The responses and reactions from delegates make my job a joy. Perhaps more importantly, is what clients say:

  • “Fabulous fun!” Mark Sherwin
  • “A thought provoking day delivered with humour and energy, making it memorable. Loved the paper laser!” Carole Crabtree
  • “Your session made me laugh, learn, think… and now I want to make important changes…” Gabe Somes
  • “Thank you for your enlightening delivery… I can only personally describe one of  your stories as the ‘most important five minutes’ of 2013… You had an inspirational approach. With your life experiences you bought the seminar to life and engaged all in the room.” Ian Mincher.

How does humor factor into your talks?

Humor factors in naturally and extremely well.  Fun is my prime motivator so is incorporated in all I do.  My humor is observational – by interacting with the audience, engaging with them and involving them in my stories the talk becomes more relevant. I use self-deprecation if required to release tension and overcome divides.

What types of lessons and tools do audiences walk away with?

Numerous tools are employed to engage with delegates: written, verbal, mime, handouts (mostly emailed by Pdf.) audience participation, my Confidence Toolbox Props, Keynote visuals, video clips and music.

As a conference organiser you know that if you hire the correct motivational speaker, you’ll virtually guarantee the success of your event.  Your clients want their delegates to leave armed with success strategies to implement straightaway. I supply such tips and tools.

As fun as the activities can be, the strength is how they are facilitated coupled to first class follow-through. We ensure that every ‘on-stage’ hour delivers. Content-rich. On time. Every time. And our feedback is exceptional. It has created repeat business and engendered long term relationships.  (A 2014 example can be supplied). As additional support we offer all our clients access to our fortnightly confidence tips.

Why are you passionate about public speaking?

I love what I do and plan to deliver above and beyond the expectations of my clients. I want each delegate to feel that the material I craft is specifically for him/her. The comments I receive lead me to believe that – I make a difference – and isn’t that what every motivational speaker hopes to achieve?

“If you are looking for an exciting, energetic, warm and genuinely engaging motivational speaker for your next event or conference, you MUST have Eilidh. She is an inspiration long after the event is over!” Kristy Smith

What types of audiences gain most from your talks?

Audiences who work within the area of communicating with other people gain insights from my sessions. I’m not sector specific as educators, trainers, leaders, business owners, associations and corporations have all engaged my services on a repeat basis. Sample clients and testimonials here.   My speaking is designed to help transform relationships, skills and attitudes. My aim is to connect powerfully with my audiences and to plug people into their emotions by creating transparency, trust and respect.
