I hate motivational speakers. I absolutely abhor the whole shebang...the restless pacing, the I-am-your-bestest-friend grin, specially that frothing-at-the-mouth voice which will not let you sleep in a quite corner of the auditorium. Besides when did any of them have anything sensible and useful to share that is not already a few clicks away minus the crazy tone and gesticulation.
Unfortunately one must sit through some of these loony presentations with loonier powerpoint figures every now and then to keep the bread and butter coming along nicely...even one on diversity with a pretty, will-pass-for white second generation Latino speaker eager to throw his lot with minorities with half his education and pay!!
