Interview with John Demartini
How do you prepare for speaking engagements?
That all depends upon the engagement. Sometimes I am simply asked to share from my heart what I inwardly sense will serve, educate and inspire my audiences the most from my many years of education and experience. Other times, I will request in advance the specific themes, goals and objectives to be met and plan, structure and execute a concisely delivered presentation to achieve the organizations or audiences intended outcomes.
Other times, I will share some previously presented modules or presentations with slight modifications to meet the needs of the new organization or audience. It all depends on the criteria that has been requested, the time and duration of the presentation, the sophistication or educational levels of the audience and what I feel will truly empower and inspire my audiences the most.
After researching 42 years on the topics of human behaviour and maximizing human awareness and potential, including leadership, business and wealth building strategies I have been blessed to be able to offer a depth of knowledge that can inform and inspire audiences regardless of backgrounds.
What type of audiences benefit most from your keynotes?
Government or business leaders, entrepreneurs, professionals and educators.
How does your expertise on human behaviour inspire audiences?
I have researched the field of human behaviour as well as over 250 other ancillary disciplines over the last 42 years. I have presented approximately 300 presentations per year and spoken before millions of people.
The most consistent comment or response I have received from audiences in 60 countries around the world has been: Wow, you have truly inspired me to expand my mission and vision and I am blown away by the depth of insight and breadth of content. Thank you! When I present to my audiences, people listen, they become present and become inspired into greater vision and action.
Do you have some tips on how people can activate leadership and empower themselves?
The greater the degree of congruency between a leader’s primary intentions and their highest values, the more inspired, clear and dedicated they will become to bringing transactional or transformational contribution to the world. When a leader can’t wait to get up in the morning and fulfil their mission of service on planet Earth, the more their organizational teams or followers can’t wait to receive their service and message.
By determining a leader’s true hierarchy of values or priorities and by delegating anything but the highest to qualified, selected and congruent others, they liberate themselves from lower priorities and distractions so they can get on with what is truly most important and impactful. By mastering the art of communicating their mission and message in terms of the highest values of those within their organization the greatest degree of engagement can be initiated and the greatest degree of productivity can be sustained.
What is your favourite experience from your keynote speaker career?
Presenting to 200 government leaders and 400 business leaders in a royal first class auditorium setting while receiving presidential treatment, diplomatic status, special visa, secret service protection, while presenting four 90 minute impactful self-mastery, business mastery, financial mastery and leadership mastery modules. For a full day inspired education was delivered to empower the leaders of Tehran, Iran to think globally and astronomically for the future of the collective world.
