I’m an award-winning public speaker and host of the Hell Yes Life podcast. I tell personal stories and present useful, actionable tips using humor, drama and authenticity to engage audiences with presentations that are honest, humorous, heart-filled and human.
I can also share lessons learned from my amazing Hell Yes Life podcast guests, including Mount Everest climber Cathy O'Dowd, millionaire podcaster John Lee Dumas, and Miracle on the Hudson survivor Dave Sanderson, plus numerous other authors, speakers and experts on the topics of life purpose, overcoming fear, productivity, mindfulness, gratitude and finding your passion. Whether you’re a business, conference, corporation or college, I’d love to see how we can work together for your next event.
As an experienced speaker, I want to provide two key things for your next event:
A great experience on stage.
As a presenter, I will use inspiring and humorous stories, as well as actionable tips to keep your audience engaged and listening. They will leave with practical, applicable next steps to take with them beyond that session.
A great experience offstage.
As a conference or event planner, there are a lot of details you have to manage and juggle. I do everything I can to make your experience working with me as easy and satisfying as possible.
I speak on a variety of topics including life purpose, storytelling, and productivity. I am able to present both keynotes and workshops for audiences of all sizes. Here are a few sample talk titles and descriptions:
In this fun and inspiring talk, Norman Bell shares his journey from giving a winning high school election speech (where his campaign slogan was “Hell Yes! Vote for Norm!”) to 25-plus years later, when he decided to start the Hell Yes Life podcast. In the talk, we’ll also explore answers to the questions, “What's my Hell Yes?”, “What’s my Cringeworthy Vision?” “How do I fit my passion into my daily life?” and “What action can I take TODAY to move toward my Hell Yes Life?”
Every superhero has an origin story. What’s yours? Whether you're an entrepreneur or you work for a company or nonprofit, knowing your origin story and being able to tell it with passion and authenticity is a key ingredient to success. In this fun, interactive talk, you'll learn some of the fundamentals for creating an inspiring origin story that you can use in a variety of settings.
Whether you work for a company or you’re an entrepreneur, doing an honest, productive day's work can be like Mission Impossible these days. With all the W.M.D. (i.e. Weapons of Mass Distraction) we encounter in our daily work lives – from emails to meetings to fire drills to Facebook – it's a wonder we get anything done at all. In this fun, fast-paced, and engaging talk, Norman will show you a few simple changes to your daily habits that can have a massive impact on your productivity and your peace of mind.
Thanks again for considering me for your event. I would love to visit with you to learn more about your conference or organization and how we can best work together to accomplish your goals. We’ll get back to you soon to see how we may be able to partner together.
