Hill Harper Speaking Topics

  • THE CONVERSATION

    Male/Female Relationships in 2015 and Beyond

    Harper presents his findings from his #1 bestselling relationship book The Conversation with an interactive discussion between men and women regarding love and relationships. He offers guidance for how men and women can fortify their relationships with clearer and more consistent communication. Harper not only analyzes the misunderstandings that plague men and women in their interactions, but in his presentation he encourages a real time conversation among the audience. The goal of this conversation is to stimulate both active listening, and self-discovery. The audience will leave with key tips for leveraging honest and direct communication to build new loving and lasting relationships, and to protect and strengthen existing relationships.

  • SAILING THE SEVEN C’S OF SUCCESS

    Harper details the principles of one of the most popular themes in his books• The Seven C’s of Success:

    • Creativity
    • Courage
    • Character
    • Confidence
    • Commitment
    • Completion
    • Calm

  • ENERGY & INNOVATION IN THE WORKPLACE

    Reinvigorate Your Mind & Ideas

    Harper uses principles from physics and a powerful analogy about energy to explore why many of us experience energy and creativity blocks in the workplace. He explores the power of energy and how critical it is not to let what is going on around you, change what is going on inside of you. Harper will offer a number of methods to stay on course and maximize our highest potential.

  • THE BLUEPRINT

    Being an Active Architect of Your Own Life

    We all have the potential to create the life we desire. Harper compares the individual’s ability to build his or her own life, to an architect’s design skills. An architect starts with a blueprint. The building shown on the blueprint is gradually erected and the structure is built. Harper explains how we can develop blueprints with the plans for our own lives. His speech coaches us to be active architects of our own lives, with a few simple tools. Harper leaves his audience inspired to both seek and create opportunities that empower them to use their unique creative skills and abilities.

  • THE WEALTH CURE

    Harper presents themes from his New York Times Bestselling book The Wealth Cure, which melds together personal philosophy, life strategies, and guidance on fortifying a financial future. Harper highlights the importance of identifying our individual wealth factors, in order to create true wealth. Harper’s strategy, infused with personal reflection, helps the individual understand how to diagnose & cure financial impediments to enable him or her to live an abundantly wealthy life. Harper’s advice offers practical application to build financial security. His presentation will demonstrate the importance of investing, budgeting, and saving effectively, but Harper also redefines wealth through a prism of good health and personal relationships.

  • MANIFESTING YOUR DESTINY & CONQUERING F.E.A.R.

    (False Evidence Appearing Real) Fear is the number one thing that holds the vast majority of us back from living our best lives and truly manifesting our destiny. Inspired by Nelson Mandela’s philosophy “...that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it,” Harper will explore fear and the limitations that fear puts on the individual’s potential. Harper helps develop the tool kit we need to identify our most debilitating fears and sharpens our self-awareness to enable us to conquer them. By reinforcing his personal philosophy that we all have our own unique and purposeful driven destiny, Harper’s speech teaches us about the critical value of perspective in order to live fulfilled lives at home, school, or in the workplace.
