Professional Speaker Spotlight- Hellen Davis


Hiring a great keynote speaker can make a huge difference in the success of your event. A professional speaker can challenge the ways attendees think about a subject, and inspire them to improve. A great speaker will share models and methodologies that attendees can learn and implement in the same day. That is the bar that we have set at Indaba Global, and our speakers aim to meet and exceed expectations at every step along the way.

Break away from the monotony of the day to day routine that leaves employees uninspired and unfulfilled. Hiring a motivational speaker to speak at your event is a great way to inspire individuals and get your entire team on the same page. The experience of being in the same room, asking questions, and being a part of an event with a great speaker leaves a lasting impression.

 “Self-Talk Tsunami”

How Behavior, self-talk, and accountability create a massive wave of success- or failure

Many people – salespeople, managers, executives - practice negative self-talk without thinking about it. This directly impacts their behavior. Self-Talk sets off chain reactions; just like the Theory of Chaos’ “Butterfly Effect”, you never know where it will lead and how much impact it might have down the line creating a monsoon or tsunami. Negative self-talk sets you up for failure and can lead to things such as burnout, arguments, poor performance, and lack of confidence. Positive self-talk centered around accountability has been proven to set off monstrous waves of success. The questions are: How do you harness the Self-Talk to create the tsunami you want? If you know the principles and plug them into your practice, is it really that simple? 

Self-accountability and group accountability drive people and organizations forward. Learn how the mind makes decisions to do or not do. Learn the difference between unconscious, subconscious and conscious minds; and how these independently and cooperatively affect decision making, actions, habits and profitability.


“Who is Driving This Bus?”

Get the right people in the right seats and get the bus moving in the right direction

We’ve all heard the expression, “They’re on the bus or off” and “We’ve got to get the right people on the right bus in the right seats.” But what exactly does that mean? How do you do this without guessing, making lots of mistakes, and going down the wrong highway?

How do you get from where you are to where you want to be in your professional life? How are your actions (your driving and braking style) impacting your life, your business, and your relationships? How does the driving style of others on your ‘professional bus’ help get you to where you need to be?

By using the bus metaphor the speaker explains how managers, executives and sales people who often have the technical skills to succeed, can acquire the consistent behavioral competence (the driving and braking) skills and habits they need to succeed and to avoid failure.

Noble Intent by Hellen Davis, The Basis for Noble Intent

“Noble Intent”

How a service mindset leads to riches -Based off Hellen Davis and Fran Landolf’s book “Noble Intent”

At work, the decisions we make and the actions we take can set events in motion. In fact, each choice we make or action we take is like toppling the lead domino in a string of dominos. We rarely think deeply enough about the potential impact or lasting effect - positive or negative - that a small action, a kind word, or a decision may have on others. It's called the Domino Effect. In that sense, Noble Intent is similar. The things you do - intentionally or unintentionally, nobly or ignobly, right or wrong - can set powerful forces in motion. We have an effect - positive or negative - on everyone we touch, just like the Domino Effect. No matter how insignificant the action may seem - it does make a difference.

Most companies, executives, and salespeople are concerned with the revenue and commissions. This can lead to driving employees and customers to take a results-oriented approach that can kill the service they provide. Pushy salespeople and negative PR are often associated with this type of mindset.

Having Noble Intent and assuming Noble Intent in others builds trust, and trust builds relationships. When you have strong relationships with clients built on Noble Intent the rewards inside the Trust Vault are life-changing!

Goal Setting

Goal setting is both a magical and rational process. The recipe for effective goal setting is simple and fulfilling. Start with big heaping mounds of inspiration, then fold in a healthy dose of imagination. Once the combination starts to gel, add values, needs, and desires to the mix.  As you stir up your goal setting concoction, you start generating energy.  The energy that you create powers the oven so that your goals come out fully cooked and perfectly baked.


Creating goals makes a state of readiness possible. When people get ready to start working on their goals, anticipation begins. When you define goals and write them down on paper, make pictures of what you want.  When you graphically represent your goals, you become excited about the prospect of achieving them. If you are one of the disciplined few who spends time thinking about their goals and then creating a goal playbook, chances are you will be more successful than the majority of your peers in getting what you want from life.
