The word “culture” took its place as the 2014 Merriam-Webster Dictionary word of the year, nosing out “nostalgia” for the honor (if you did have nostalgia and the “points”, you won!). This came as good news to The Speaker Experts, as orators on the topic of corporate culture continue to be in high demand on the circuit. And, after 30 plus years in the industry, we have never been asked for a speaker on the topic of nostalgia. The Speaker Experts spend a great deal of time listening to clients when they articulate their speaker needs and desired outcome for a session. When a client asks for a “culture” speaker, the request often comes in the form of one of the needs listed below – all fall under the Merriam-Webster 2014 Word of the Year, “culture”:

  • We are looking for a speaker on employee engagement
  • We want a speaker who will energize our workforce and increase productivity
  • We want to develop managers who create an environment of fierce company loyalty and emotional commitment
  • We want to create a customer experience that our competition is unwilling or unable to match

The Speaker Experts can’t tell you if the four speakers listed below are trending, or the most-booked or most-popular. BUT, we can tell you that they are four of the best in the business on the topics of corporate and organizational culture:

Jim Knight

On a side note, the Oxford Dictionary word of the year was “vape.” The Speaker Experts would be blowing vape at you if we said we got asked about speakers on this topic!
