Press Release: 12:30hrs Tuesday 11th January 2011
GET MOTIVATED Great Britain 2011, which had been set to take place on Saturday 15th January 2011 at the LG Arena, NEC, Complex, Birmingham, has been postponed to Saturday 2nd April 2011 because of extreme weather conditions in the USA and the high risk of the American speakers not being able to attend the event.
"The reason for the rescheduling is totally down to the extreme weather the USA is currently experiencing," Phil Watts, Managing Director of The Success Bureau (promoter) confirmed. "We weighed up all the information we could get about the snow etc, and felt it would not be fair to our delegates to continue with the event on the 15th January 2011 with a very high risk that some, if not all of the American Speakers were not appearing.”
"We think it’s the fairest decision all round for delegates across the UK and even from other countries who will have to travel in.”
"I can only add how sorry I am that the weather has forced us to reschedule the event – We were all really looking forward to it but it can't be helped. As a gesture of goodwill, all existing ticket holders will receive a FREE copy of the GET MOTIVATED Great Britain 2011 Event Programme & Workbook on the day (RRP £10.00) We look forward to seeing you all on the 2nd April 2011."
End:As you can all imagine we were all very disappointed that the event had to be moved. However, on a positive note: We have had tremendous support from all our customers and all the speakers bar one. (Clearly, some speakers are in it for the money - not the positive impact they can have on other peoples lives! SHAME... Never mind... as a positive organisation we replaced them with PENNY POWER, a tremendous speaker, entrepreneur and founder of "The Ecademy Network".

How many of you would attend a motivational seminar? I’m asking because I know quite a few people that are either intimidated by the idea or a little embarrassed. As a matter of fact, I have friends that are afraid to purchase a self help book, in fear of what others may think! Somehow some of them think it is a sign of weakness to do so…. There is absolutely no shame whatsoever in trying to improve yourself, and although self improvement is a very personal matter, here are some reasons why I really believe you should go out of your way to attend a professional motivational seminar:
Energy & atmosphere
The energy confined within a seminar is extraordinary. You will not find another place like it, something happens when you have a mass of people all looking to improve their life, circumstances, income and future. It is quite an experience, which rivals rock concerts and other gatherings in terms of excitement and enthusiasm from both the presenters and the audience. This positive energy is very addictive and you will find yourself having a tremendous time. Although the topics and stories may sometimes be of a serious nature, the atmosphere is never one of sadness or sorrow. It is about re-inventing yourself and making your life better. Put together hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of the same-minded people and what you get is pure magic. The mere buzz that flows through the event will have you wanting more, accepting to do more and ultimately achieve more.
These seminars are some of the best places on the planet to make contacts with like-minded people, which can develop into fruitful business relationships or long lasting personal friendships. You will be surprised that the vast majority of people attending these seminars are quite affluent and highly successful individuals in their own right. If you run your own business, this is a wonderful place to network and get the word out about your company, as well as learn about others in your region that you may not have been aware of. Everyone that attends seminars usually leave with a few new friends, and having friends and/or contacts that are on the same wavelength as you are is extremely important to help you succeed in life and business. Remember no one ever makes it on their own… it’s a TEAM effort. On a personal note, I and my business Partners attended a motivational seminar in March of this year (Dallas, Texas) and forged a business relationship with a company that will be worth millions to our company in 2011.
What’s great about seminars is that the presenter can go into greater details about their success or experiences that made you want to attend the seminar in the first place. Therefore, you are likely to get much more information and insights into what helped them create their specific success. It also helps to humanise the speaker and when you see that the life-changing knowledge that you read or listened to was created by a human being not that much different from you, it will show you that you are just as capable to create wonderful things in your life as well. Also, these professional seminars usually include a guest lineup speakers from different fields of business and success, so you are very likely to learn much more than you thought you would. You definitely leave a motivational seminar with a ton of new knowledge.
One of my favorite aspects of motivational seminars is that it is very interactive with the audience. People are encouraged to ask questions and share their stories. It’s one thing to hear about the presenters and their stories about turning their lives around, but when you hear it from someone sitting next to you, to me that is even more powerful. It makes everything real and possible for you, in that if these people next to you are capable of it, then nothing is stopping you from doing the same. As well, this is a platform for you to share your inspiring story too! You may find sharing your story very rewarding and very therapeutic. This is what’s great about these events…everyone is there to help each other, including within the audience itself.
Your dedication to your cause
Attending a motivational seminar used to require quite an investment from you. They used to be quite expensive in terms of money, and they used to be time consuming as well. Today however that’s not the case you can attend a one day seminar with world class speakers for less than £20.00 (example: www.getmotivatedgb.com a one day event with a stellar line up of speakers, including James Caan, Zig Ziglar, Karren Brady, Mark Victor Hansen, Morris Goodman, Christine Hamilton and more) Also, you need to attend with your utmost focus & concentration, along with an open mind so that you can absorb the information & experience properly. Needless to say, you can clearly see that it requires a vast dedication on your part to effectively attend such an event. This is why most people do not, because most people give up or don’t want to put in the effort. However, attending a motivational seminar will help proclaim how serious and dedicated you are to turning your life around and improving it. This is why so many people go back home completely different individuals. When you combine such dedication with insightful knowledge, the result can truly be life-changing.
Boost your motivation momentum
As you go through your daily life, you will probably only remember at most 10-15% of any book’s information. After all, the act of reading a book isn’t memorable. However, attending a motivational seminar is absolutely a memorable event to take part of. This is why you are much more likely to remember knowledge from such an event, compared to having just read the book. Plus, it’s a wonderful way to skyrocket your motivation into the stratosphere, where if you are smart about it, you can ride that momentum all the way to accomplishing all the goals you ever dreamed of.
If you are looking for a motivational seminar to attend, please take a look at this GMGB2011 from all of the greats in the personal development industry I proudly recommend it!
Make 2011 the best year of your life, after all its show time right now…. It’s not a dress rehearsal.

Following a recent UK Tour with Tan Solutions Ltd and Sally's, I wanted to share TEN top tips for becoming a Top Retail Salesperson Superstar...
Selling today in the retail business is an art... successful sales professionals follow simple but effective rules that ensure they are always at the top of their game.
2. Let the customer talk most of the time (preferably 80% of the time) by asking open ended questions to discover the needs and requirements of the customer.
3. Can recognise and relate to the objections and do not get defensive when handling objections.
4. Are able to identify and prioritize the requirements of the customer; and not just the apparent ones but possible hidden needs like status and prestige.
5. Know their products or services inside out and are able to find a good match between customer requirements and what the product and/or service can deliver.
6. Talk about benefits rather than features. They are able to express benefits in a simple yet effective and relevant fashion.
7. Always look for ways to improve their skills and knowledge. They attend seminars, read books and listen to tapes and CD’s to discover new ways of increasing their effectiveness and productivity.
8. Are determined to win. They clearly understand the definition of success in their environment and the rewards that are attached to attaining it. They like to talk about their major achievements and look forward to doing even better.
9. Are self confident and generally happy people. They don’t necessarily show their burning desire to win to the outside world.
10. Like to help others when they can afford the time, however they also clearly understand that time is the most important resource they have and the only one that can not be recovered.

Making sure each employee's workplace goals and values are aligned with the organisation's mission and vision is important for creating and maintaining a high level of motivation. That can lead to higher productivity, improved work quality and financial gain across all departments.
Motivation has become increasingly important for organisations and companies of all sizes that want to reach their organisational objectives in a competitive marketplace. Top performers of an organisation consistently provide high-quality work, maintain a high level of productivity and overcome obstacles or challenges. Helping all employees maintain a high level of motivation can help keep employees committed to working hard and contributing as much value as possible to the organisation.
You can use a variety of strategies to improve motivation. Managers who serve as leaders within the organisation can help convey the right messages to engage employees and help them grow within their positions. Motivation can be increased with incentives, feedback, rewards programs, training and ensuring that the workplace meets basic needs and requirements for each employee. Common types of motivational tactics include: events that raise employee morale; training and education to help employees learn new skills and grow within their positions; recognition programs to highlight hard work and reinforcing positive messages during company or team meetings. check out: www.getmotivatedgb.com for cost effective worldclass events.
Motivational strategies can help improve employee performance, reduce the chances of low employee morale, encourage teamwork and instill a positive attitude during challenging times. Employees with a high level of motivation typically work harder and can overcome common workplace challenges with ease; this helps the organisation reach its objectives and improve operations overall.
Any company or organisation that notices a significant decline in productivity, high employee turnover or that cannot reach its goals successfully may need to consider the role of motivation among its employees. Low motivation can trigger a variety of detrimental events that affect the organisation in the short term and in the long term. Unmotivated staff members are at risk of resigning, delivering poor-quality work and even making it difficult for other employees to do their jobs efficiently.
Reducing the risk of low motivation among employees typically requires a strategic plan and a combination of different activities and tactics that help improve employee morale. Companies that invest time and resources toward improving their employees' well-being and workplace experience can look forward to a high return on their investment as employees become more productive, maintain a positive attitude, commit to their roles and duties and maintain a strong work ethic.
In Summary: Motivation is the key to SUCCESS in life and business!
Supercharge 2011 and join me with a host of worldclass speakers at GET MOTIVATED Great Britain 2011.... You will be glad you did.
