Providing Inspirational Keynotes and Corporate Presentations, Adapting to Virtual Platforms

Everyone Can Benefit from our Inspirational and Motivational Methodologies

Randy Pierce is a captivating motivational speaker who draws upon his life experiences to inspire, entertain, and teach. Randy creates a powerful connection to his audience through unique viewpoints on the adventures and challenges of a man who chose a life filled with incredible adventure-laden experiences despite his being suddenly stricken with a neurological disease rendering him blind at age 22. Participants experience the highs, lows, and problem-solving techniques used to convert adversity into methods of achieving our peak potential.

His realization that you truly don’t need to see in order to have a vision–or to bring that vision to reality–is the inspirational backdrop for a methodology as powerful as the motivation behind his message. Randy came to believe that most of our limits in life are self-imposed; that far too often, we accept and thereby empower the notion of “can’t.” It is an idea that–when framed with Randy’s compelling personal story–invariably resonates with people, giving them new energy to engage the possibilities that lie within their grasp. Emphasizing goal-setting, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication with amusing anecdotes and demonstrable achievements, he will motivate each participant to set and achieve their own goals.

Testimonials

Steve Condon – The Allied Group

I have had the opportunity to hear Randy Pierce speak a couple of times – different venues but both were outstanding presentations! I heard Randy speak at the NESHMM event in October 2019, where he captured the attention of almost 200 health care professionals. I was in the audience at this event and was so impressed that I asked Randy to speak at our recent annual sales kickoff meeting, held virtually for a smaller group of 30. Randy completely captures his audience with his comments about resiliency, goal setting, and self-evaluation. Combine that with a powerful video and slide presentation and all I saw was an engaged audience for the entire time! Because of the pandemic, our kickoff meeting was held virtually for the first time – but hearing Randy over Zoom did not diminish any of his effectiveness! Many of our team members reached out immediately to state how they were riveted by his story – and to say he was one of the better speakers we have had at this annual meeting. Do your organization (and yourself!) a favor and have Randy at your next event!

Christabel Sheridan – Microsoft Corp.

Randy did a presentation to several of Microsoft’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). His presentation and its message resonated with the audience and left a deep, positive impression on everyone. His story is inspiring and the way he presents it is very authentic and approachable. We are looking forward to having him present to more groups at Microsoft.

Jeanne-Marie Kraemer – National Charity League

If you are looking for an inspiring speaker who can lift your audience up while encouraging everyone to embrace opportunities for resilience and gratitude, Randy Pierce is your man. He spoke to my chapter of the National Charity League and the response from members was entirely and overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic.

Kim Parent – Head of North American Sales, Millipore Sigma

A couple of months ago I reached out to Randy about doing a motivational speech for my sales team. I was looking for something that spoke to resilience and overcoming obstacles and challenges. We are in the middle of the pandemic, and everyone is experiencing challenges both at work and in our home lives. I suspected Randy would be both motivating and inspiring, providing perspective while challenging us to reach our peak potential. We tuned in for his virtual talk at the end of our first virtual employee engagement day, on a Friday afternoon. I could not be more pleased with Randy’s talk and how incredibly powerful it was. The accolades from our commercial teams were tremendous and he touched every one of us in a truly meaningful way. Randy will be remembered in our organization for a very long time, and his messages are now being incorporated into our culture and purpose. I highly recommend Randy as a speaker to anyone. We can all learn a great deal from his incredible life stories and his unstoppable spirit.

Elizabeth Chick – Human Resources, Vapotherm Corp.

Every year Vapotherm hosts a training week that entails bringing our employees, both domestic and international, together in Exeter, NH. During this week we focus on investing in ourselves, our community, our company, and others. This year we had the privilege of having Randy as our keynote speaker. Randy embodied all areas of investment that we promoted throughout the week. He tied in how investing in yourself requires you to invest in your team and how without effective communication obstacles are bound to arise. Randy seamlessly tailored his talk to Vapotherm, and highlighted our theme. We have heard nothing but positive feedback from our employees. It definitely will be hard to top Randy!
