KNOWLEDGE + MILEAGE CHANGES EVERYTHING!
I was in my late 20’s a week prior to boarding a flight to Moscow to close my first pipeline deal. And I can still remember what my business partner, a man in his late 50’s, said when I told him I didn’t need him to go with me:
“Martin, they’re not going to believe you can do the job because you don’t have any gray hair!”
At the time I wanted to ignore him because my tenacity and ego had gotten us to the point of closing a multi million dollar deal. But as it turned out, he was right that I needed assistance from someone with more mileage. The fact is that we can talk all day long about something we know. But credibility comes from trying, failing and ultimately succeeding. And with 30 years of trying, failing and succeeding, my knowledge has plenty of mileage.
“Everyone needs Martin’s words and positivity. The world would be a much better place if we all took a moment to listen to him.”
When you hire me to speak at your event, I’ll bring the knowledge and the mileage. I can definitely talk about how I escaped hotels and kidnappings. But most importantly, I’ll deliver innovative solutions for how your audience can escape the life they’re expected to live for the life they want to live. My promise to you and your audience is that I will deliver a message that inspires them to achieve their highest goals and their best selves.
“From my first conversation with Martin Pigg, a couple of years ago, it was immediately clear to me that this is a man of passion, with an adventurous spirit and a great desire to serve others. I find it beautifully appropriate that Martin is a licensed pilot, because he not only has a gift for helping others take a “10,000-foot view” of the challenges that seem so overwhelming, but he also knows how to take them aloft in pursuit of their dreams!”
The topics below can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your group as a keynote presentation, half-day or full-day event:
Winning the War With Your Self – Based on my book, “Winning the War With Your Self.” In it, I describe the internal war that prevents most of us from pursuing our purpose. And I reveal the secret to winning the war and living our happiest and most fulfilling lives.
Curing Your Societal Timeline Disorder – Societal Timeline Disorder is the number one dream killer in our world and a disease every one of us suffers from at some point in our lives. In this presentation I share the root causes with audiences and help them create the mindset to heal from the disorder and live their purpose in life.
Mobilizing The PIGG Principle – The surest path I know to finding and living your purpose is with Passion, Intention, Gratitude and Grace. In this speech I discuss each of the four energies in depth and talk about why they are essential for anyone who is ready to find and live their reason for living.
Living the Second Draft of Your Life – Forty months of writing and reliving the occasionally painful and ultimately successful story of the twenty-year search for my purpose is the basis for this presentation. In it I discuss how changing our old narrative is the catalyst for creating a new life.
“Martin is a wonderfully insightful speaker, who shares very real stories of his life’s challenges that he used to propel him to, not only becoming a pilot, but also an effective leader and speaker. He doesn’t sugar-coat his message because his aim is to get to the core of what causes you to be stuck so you can overcome challenges to become the person you always dreamed you could be. He helps you find the gifts and passions you were meant to share with the world.”
