Speaking Engagements

Richard Monette lives his passion: He coaches people to greatness. With over 20 years of professional experience, Richard is an expert who has coached Olympic athletes and distinguished corporations alike to achieve remarkable results.

The universality of his strategies positions Richard as an ideal speaker for a broad range of organizations and corporations. His colourful storytelling engages his audience, infecting them with his genuine passion for human performance and inspiring them with the clarity of his approach. After hearing Richard speak, each audience member is left with the thought "I can do this!" The results speak for themselves.

In his own words:

“Truth be told, I believe I am a successful speaker because I do not consider myself a speaker -- I am simply a passionate human and organizational performance coach who loves to speak about my practical experiences.

Each and every one of my presentations begins with a simple premise: ‘Let me tell you what I have learned in living my purpose as a performance coach to corporate leaders, world-class organizations and world champion athletes.’ From that perspective, I always customize my presentations to be as practical, applicable and personal as possible for each and every one of my audiences.”

-- Richard Monette


Richard always tailors his presentations to be as practical and applicable as possible to his audience. Here are some of Richard’s favorite (and most acclaimed) topics:

Purpose = performance and fulfillment
How purposeful actions lead to successful results.
So simple, yet so overlooked. Through years of work as a strategic change agent, Richard has identified purpose as one of the most important ways to enhance performance on both a daily and long-term basis. This presentation educates and inspires individuals and leaders to inject purpose into their daily routines. Richard uses his experience with dozens of unique situations to demonstrate how to do this and why it is necessary.

Going for the gold
Great lessons from Olympians and other world champions
Having coached Olympic athletes and world champions, Richard has realized the approach to athletic achievement can be mirrored in any area where optimal performance is desired. This presentation demonstrates how strategies used by Olympians in their quest for gold have parallels in the business world.

Creativity 101
An introduction to creative thought in the workplace

Creativity, while sometimes elusive, is what sets successful organizations apart. In this presentation, Richard offers a proven approach to increasing individuals’ and organizations’ capabilities for practicing creative thought within the constraints of workplace realities.

Beyond golf
How to improve your score in golf, business and life
One day Richard, an avid and passionate golfer himself, was struck by how perfectly the complexities of the game of golf fit as a metaphor for business, and for life. This presentation stems from that realization and in it Richard discusses golf as the ideal arena for corporate performers to learn how to face new challenges and incorporate new knowledge, skills, and perspectives. Richard also explores this concept in depth in his novel, The Gift, as well as in his Beyond Golf workshop.
