Most Requested Speaking Topics

Each of Daymond John’s keynotes are customized to fit your specific objectives. They are informative yet entertaining and involve: lots of humor, high-energy and audience-speaker interaction. Daymond uses compelling stories from his rags-to-riches journey to illustrate his points and always leaves audience members with practical, tangible and invaluable tools to incorporate into their professional as well as personal endeavors. With over 20 years of phenomenally successful business experience, Daymond has the ability speak on wide-range of business related matters; however, his three most requested topics are below:

Goals/Motivation

In this keynote, presented in his charismatic style, The Shark, Daymond John, takes audience members on an inspiring, emotional rollercoaster ride. They will hear, first-hand, how a man, with no formal business training whatsoever, went from driving cabs and waiting tables at Red Lobster to creating a global fashion empire with retail sales exceeding four billion dollars to date, and a starring role on ABC’s hit reality business show, Shark Tank. Daymond entertains and awes audience members with true-life tales of his incredible successes and numerous failures. Equally important, however, he motivates, inspires, and teaches them how to set and go after their own goals with newfound focus and determination.

Audience members will be galvanized as they realize they have been setting goals for themselves all of their lives—whether they realized it or not! What’s more, to their surprise, many attendees will learn that the goals they have been setting have been self-destructive.

Unlike some “motivational speakers”, rather than spitting-out tiresome “I can make it, so can you” clichés, Daymond shares the exact goal-setting strategies that he attributes to his success and teaches audience members how to incorporate them into their endeavors. This keynote will challenge attendees to exercise their brains in a way that cultivates a positive, goal-setting mindset.

This keynote is absolutely terrific for: salespeople, students, business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and just about anyone who wants more out of their personal and/or professional endeavors.

Branding/Marketing

When William Shakespeare said, "All the world's a stage", he was indirectly talking about branding! This informative keynote is like nothing else on the market. Sure, there are other speakers that may explain how to market and brand a product, but how many explain, step-by-step, how to brand yourself and transfer that power into your job, company or product? Did you realize that you’re a brand? According to The Shark, you were branded the day you were born and continuously every second since!

In this keynote, The Shark, Daymond John, gives audience members in-depth insight into how your personal brand affects all aspects of your life. Not only will attendees learn the importance of branding, Daymond will reveal some of the tricks that helped him expand his brand into dozens of countries around the globe. The techniques shared can be applied to personal branding as well as to the branding of products and concepts.

Corporations love employees with a strong sense of branding because it inspires out-of-the-box thinking, creating an infectious energy that flows throughout the work environment.

It's no secret that the world has gotten smaller. Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Foursquare and dozens of other social websites have increased the desire for people to be noticed as a brand, let The Shark, Daymond John, show you how.

This keynote is great for: salespeople, marketing and advertising personnel, business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and anyone who is interested in personal branding or the branding of an idea or product.

Negotiation Strategies for Women

Women—You have more power than you may think!

Although The Shark, Daymond John, is one of the most recognized negotiators on network television, and has conducted hundreds of negotiations with both men and women throughout his twenty years in business, he never planned on speaking on negotiation strategies for women; that is, until California First Lady, Maria Shriver, called upon him to speak on this very topic for her annual Women’s Conference.

Feeling a bit out of his realm and comfort zone, The Shark, Daymond John, decided to immerse himself in research to find out what, if any, differences existed between how men and women tend to negotiate with each other. In this keynote, Daymond shares what he discovered in his research and personal experiences over the years. His findings will have audience members sitting up and taking notes! According to The Shark, not only do women have several distinct advantages over men when negotiating—in both professional and personal settings, but quite a few disadvantages as well.

Daymond will share specific techniques on how to respond to today's negotiation challenges. Not only will this keynote leave every attendee feeling empowered, more confident, and ready to tackle the world, they will have lots of fun and laughs in the process.

This keynote is excellent for: salespeople, business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and anyone who is looking to improve their interpersonal skills.
