FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BUFFALO GETS FIRST INTERNATIONAL MOMONDAYS ON FEBRUARY 4!
TORONTO, ON: Motivational Mondays, or MoMondays™, is like a cross between open mic comedy and expert Talks, bringing together motivational speakers and other individuals to share their stories. Some are funny, some are profoundly personal, some are thought-provoking, all are motivating.
Professional speaker and MC Michel Neray originally created the event to help his fellow speakers rehearse stories and develop new content for speeches, but the concept quickly caught on with the general public. Introduced in February 2012 with just 15 people in the audience, the event now attracts over 100 people on a regular basis in Toronto, and has expanded to other cities including Oakville, Winnipeg, Calgary and now Buffalo. The Buffalo launch of MoMondays takes place on February 4, 2013 @ the Maple Entertainment Complex, Located in the Maple-Ridge Plaza at the corner of Maple and Sweet Home Roads. Tickets can be purchased at http://MoMondays.com
The Buffalo event will be hosted by Tina Dietz, a Buffalo native who’s branded as North America’s Business Development Maven as well as a professional voice actor. She is the creator of the Success Funnel System™, and has served businesses in more than 20 industries internationally from solo entrepreneurs to some of the largest utility providers.
“Tina presented at MoMondays in Toronto and I just knew she had the right stuff to kick this off in Buffalo,” explains MoMondays Founder Michel Neray. “She’s as strategic as she is off the wall and entertaining.”
“I’m thrilled that Buffalo was chosen to be MoMondays first US location,” says Tina. “We have such a wealth of talent here from the creative community to business and everything in-between. MoMondays allows us to showcase great people from WNY worldwide. Plus, we can now attract even more Canadians who want their daily dose of cross-border laughter.”
Each event brings together six to eight professional and amateur speakers to engage with a diverse audience on a wide array of topics. MoMondays is a great chance for pros to hone their craft while offering the audience a chance to experience leading thinkers and powerful stories. For people new to the platform, MoMondays offers an opportunity to get in front of an audience and tell their stories in a supportive environment. For all, MoMondays energizes the room with the diverse range of personal stories and life lessons. Generally set in a bar or tavern means that the focus is on socializing as opposed to formal networking.
Founder Michel Neray believes that aside from being great entertainment, MoMondays fills a real need for people: “Audiences are tired of canned speeches, negative rants and empty laughs. They want ‘real’ – real people, real stories and real inspiration. MoMondays takes the audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions, leaving the audience
“It was such a warm and supportive audience,” exclaimed Adrian Davis following his speech at a previous MoMonday. “I felt permission to try things I had never tried in my keynotes before. It was a great feeling.”
