Chip Madera CSP: Chip Madera, CSP, Motivational Speaker, Leadership Speaker, Healthcare Speaker, Leadership Expert and Keynote Speaker, 5 July 2015 [cached]
Chip exceeded my expectation to inspire our staff to overcome barriers to our leadership challenges . . . Chip's stage presence, charisma, articulation and teaching are rare gifts. His energetic style and humorous stories enable him to hold the audience's attention for hours. As with any organization, quality begins with its employees. Without change, nothing is gained. Chip Madera will help you bring about change - an investment your organization will greatly profit from.
Chip, you made a tremendous impact on our leaders at our retreat this month.
Chip Madera was fabulous! What set's Chip apart from other keynote speakers is that he arrives at the beginning of the event and listens to the corporate presenters the whole day. He then integrates their concepts and ideas into his message. He remembers all their names, quotes them and shares his perspective of what they were trying to communicate, thereby driving home the messages of the day in a bold and challenging way. This totally brings relevance to his message to every single person in the room both personally and professionally. As an event producer and director I highly recommend Chip Madera, he is the perfect way to wrap up an incredible event.
I received an email the following day from someone who wrote " What a hoot Chip Madera is! He was funny yet serious and certainly delivered an excellent message!
Chip adds at least two wonderful dimensions: First, He is passionate about healthcare because he worked in the industry and truly understands the contemporary concerns of the profession. Secondly, he clearly practices what he preaches. Chip is not just another speaker, he is a teacher. I believe he cares about what takes place in people’s lives after he leaves and that he is committed to imparting practical, positive strategies to help his audiences succeed.
Chip, it is a pleasure to repeat some of the thoughts expressed on conference evaluations . . . Wonderful, terrific, exceptional program; so refreshing to see a young man who has his priorities in order and with sound principles; has excited me to go back to the workplace with a renewed heart; invite him back; he touched my soul.

Chip began his journey in life on a 350 acre Hereford farm in Western Pennsylvania. His roots in rural America taught him to work hard, to honor God, and to show others dignity and respect. All his life he has been engaged in the study of human potential and behavioral change. Along the way he has been mastering the art of public speech and studying effective ways to enhance performance and ignite the fires of hope and untapped potential in others. He discovered his ultimate purpose after being diagnosed with cancer in 1995. That purpose is to encourage and inspire others to seek, discover and explore their ultimate potential. This self-discovery compels him to develop programs, products and services that help others explore and exploit their "greater selves."
He graduated from college in 1984 with a degree in Psychology and attained his Masters of Science degree in Human Resources and Organizational Development from Barry University in 1999.
Chip has earned his Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, established by the National Speakers Association (NSA) and the International Federation for Professional Speakers (IFPS), as the speaking profession's international measure of professional platform skill. The CSP designation, was established in 1980, and is conferred only on those accomplished speakers who have earned it by meeting strict criteria. The letters CSP following a speaker's name indicate a speaking professional with proven experience who understands what is required and knows how to deliver client satisfaction. Chip is a professional member of the National Speakers Association (NSA), Past President of the National Speakers Association in North Florida, NSA Central Florida, the American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration (ASHHRA), the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the Central Florida Human Resources Association (CFHRA) and the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD). He invests thousands of dollars each year in association dues to stay current within his field and to continue to discover the contemporary concerns of his audiences.
He is a Motivation and Performance Strategist with over 19 years experience helping leaders and teams from every type of industry enhance performance and create an environment that delights their customers. He presents over 100 motivational programs and leadership/staff training programs per year. His strategic, straight forward, and humorous approach will inspire your leadership and staff to take action and get results. Chip gets results because of his background in management, psychology and organizational development. He served for almost 9 years as the Management Training Coordinator at a 356-bed hospital on the east coast of Florida. There he initiated and built the Institute for Leadership Development (ILD), a comprehensive corporate university and organizational development institute designed to provide courses for managerial skill development, as well as opportunities for personal and professional growth for all hospital employees. The ILD curriculum once consisted of thirty-nine courses and three internal degree programs. His leadership in the ILD led to other outside organizations requesting his speaking services. He used vacation time to speak for other organizations/associations and his part-time career was exploding. Within three years he launched Chip Madera Productions, Inc. full-time and has never looked back.
Since much of his professional career was spent in healthcare he definitely specializes in the industry. He has nearly 250 hospitals and state/national healthcare associations on his resume. However, He also speaks to hundreds of organizations within a variety of industries like the European Carton Makers Association, 3M, Southern Company, Gatorade, Verizon, United States Postal Service, Disney, WorldCom, Bell South, Westinghouse, Carvel, Sbarro, Westar Energy, the Mayo Clinic and Cascades Boxboard in Montreal, Quebec Canada just to name a few.
