How To Sparkle ~ Shape Your Life To Stand Out From The Crowd

Monday, October 10th, 2011


Listening to some keynote Motivational Speakers over the years, surprisingly most of the upbeat, positive ones can be American.

I attended my first Global Fitness Idea Convention at Loughborough University and the keynote speaker was Betty Williams. Her style was a cross between Joan Rivers and Ruby Wax. She arrived on stage dressed in a black suit, covered in cut out red roses, dragging behind her a very large suitcase on wheels, her wardrobe.  She introduced her her highly motivational speech by announcing ‘if Elizabeth Taylor travelled carrying as many suitcases, then she too would copy her style’.

Betty Williams was sponsored by Playdoh and throughout her speech she would throw out lumps of playdoh, suggesting to the audience this exercise was to help them shape their lives. I have never forgotten her speech, her style, her playdoh, her message to this day, twenty years or so later.  Since this speech I have presented several motivational seminars to the Chamber Of Commerce and Women In Enterprise groups on the Power Of Play.
