About Topher Morrison
Since 1989, “Topher,” as he is known to his friends, has trained tens of thousands of people worldwide, and is acclaimed as an expert in mass communication. Dr. Morrison is internationally recognized for his columns on leadership through speaking, keynotes, and media training. Topher is the author of the best-selling book, “Stop Chasing Perfection and SETTLE FOR EXCELLENCE” which is being hailed as the self-help book for people who are tired of self-help books.
In contrast to most professional speakers, Topher’s shockingly honest and irresistibly down-to-earth approach is surprisingly infectious. His personality and straightforward manner are endearing to audiences who are tired of fleeting success in “self-help sinkholes.” He is not afraid to tell it like it is and shatter the myth of achieving perfection. Instead, Topher reaches people across all aspects of an organization and shares with them well grounded, easy-to-implement strategies to stay focused and inspired on their company goal no matter what the economy may be serving up. He’s not so much a motivational speaker, as he his a motivational rebel!
Topher isn’t just a ‘one-trick pony’ speaker. He has committed his career to understanding all facets of speaking – from motivational keynotes, to hosting events, and endorsing products as a spokesperson, when you hire Topher, you don’t just get a speaker, you get an expert who can communicate your message to the masses.
IN TOPHER’S OWN WORDS…
“I think I’m a bit of a freak, actually. I don’t know why but I love studying what makes some speakers just okay, and other speakers truly great. I watch talk shows and study the hosts interviewing skills, and critique the guest for how they could have made a more effective presentation. I watch televised events, and instead of being entertained, I study the host to see how they interact with the audience and the TV.
I watch political debates and look past the rhetoric and explore why one candidate comes off more believable than the other despite the fact that they both pretty much say the same thing. It’s this never-ending obsession with mass communication that, I think, makes me so much more well rounded than your average speaker, and I’m certain that’s what can qualify me to be your mentor and coach should you need to deliver an important presentation.”
