Utilizing Authenticity as a Speaker with Jeff Butler & Charles Clark

Jeff Butler is a keynote speaker, author, and workplace strategist who talks about how multi-generational organizations can thrive. He helps businesses with topics ranging from recruitment to retention management and offers managers and C-Suite members unique insights from a millennial perspective. Moreover, he talks about authenticity and how it can be leveraged to form connections and create a strong team. Jeff has been featured in over 50 media outlets, has founded 3 profitable companies by 27, and has published two books.

Key Takeaways

  • Jeff’s path into the speaking business wasn’t linear. Learn about his challenges and road blocks along the way. 
  • It’s important to not only be authentic on the stage but also behind the scenes. Having a team can be a great asset, and it’s important that you’re transparent with them. Let them know when you see them doing well but also point out where they could be improving.
  • Sustaining a speaking business is more than just about going on stage. There is a lot at work behind the scenes—like building up experience and marketing yourself. 
  • A strategy Jeff gives to have a successful speaking business is reverse engineering everything. Figure out where you want to be and then look at what others did to get there. That is a great source of information and can lead you down the right path.

Memorable Quotes

  • The ultimate thing that we’re doing when we’re being authentic or trying to practice authenticity is connection…not to get a result but to connect, feel heard.” – Charles Clark
  • “[In speaking] there’s so many people who are better than me who can be funny or make an audience clap on command or get a standing ovation. But can you consistently get on stages for enough money to make this a successful business? That is hard.” – Jeff Butler
  • “The speaking business is not just about getting on the stage, it’s a lot of leg work. It’s a lot of behind the scenes things that most people will never see.” – Charles Clark
