Are you ready for something different in your list of reality TV options? Yes, much different, like our brand new and the very first inspirational business reality TV Show based on the #1 fear in America?
Imagine a Reality TV show where:
· People don’t cheat to win.
· People don’t fight every five minutes.
· The cast is NOT coached to be negative, ratchet and demeaning.
· Each episode empowers you through entertaining content how you can grow in your life and/or your business regardless of your profession.
Is it even possible? YES, and it’s called THE KEYNOTE!
Convincingly, based on the feedback from all of those surveyed and those who have actually seen a few sneak peeks of this new genre of ‘edutainment,’ we have every reason to believe that you will absolutely love The KEYNOTE.
In fact, the entire Keynote team, director, cast and crew would even go so far as to say that it could very well be “love at first sight.”
Strange as it may sound, the Keynote is an upcoming experience that many have already fallen madly in love with; not only for its inspirational, educational and entertaining value but also because of the continuous nuggets of life empowerment coaching squeezed into each episode by none other than, Delatorro L. McNeal, II , MS, CSP, himself.
This young motivator is a seasoned soul, most recently ranked #32 of the Top 60 Best Motivational Speakers in the World, transforming the lives of people from all walks of life for over the past 15 years.
Holding the prestigious CSP designation, which places him in the top 7% of paid professional speakers worldwide, Delatorro has spoken in 49 of the 50 US states and abroad and has delivered well over 3000 paid presentations to major corporations, professional associations, conventions, pro-sports teams, churches, and leadership conferences.
He has been featured on national and worldwide television networks like FOX, ABC, NBC, BET, TBN, Daystar and Oxygen as well as syndicated radio shows all across America.
After authoring 6 books, over a dozen personal growth and professional development courses and founding The Full Throttle Experience [a 3-Day Annual Leaderpreneurship Conference] he decided to tackle another long term ambition.
When asked what led him to taking on such an enormous task, Delatorro had this to say:
“I’ve always had a passion to coach, mentor and develop speakers and authors. I’ve done so for about 10 years now. My greatest dream however, has always been to create and produce a top-quality television program that inspires people to share their stories in a profound and powerful way that inspires others to live their best lives possible. So, 2 years ago, I embarked upon a journey where I shot my own Reality TV Show in my hometown of Tampa, FL. In the middle of the process of conceptualizing the entire project, my mother passed away, and it broke my heart. She had been sick for many years but was very stable until the hospital had to put a trach in her throat. And when she lost her voice, she lost her fight. I was devastated for several months, but I picked myself up continued with my vision of producing THE KEYNOTE. I hired the production crew, built the support team, partnered with my community, recruited the cast, and we made it happen. A few months after that and 15 months following, I began the process of shopping the show to the big networks, in hopes they would pick up the show. I received rave reviews on the concept, the quality and the direction but most networks thought the show was; too clean, too neat and most importantly too positive.”
I asked Delatorro, to take us behind the scenes and tell us what the essence of The Keynote was all about:
“It was amazing! Nine contestants from all over the US came to spend 5 days and nights in a multi-million dollar MANSION to be personally mentored and coached by yours truly and they all were coming with this one goal in mind…to become The KEYNOTE!
Let me mention also that this mansion was breath taking but to be totally honest, a number of the cast members were giving me a hard time saying that they hardly had time to even enjoy the 10,000+ square foot mansion because over the course of their 5 days, these 9 contestants spent enormous blocks of back to back time learning my insider secrets to speaking, publishing, branding, presentation skills, marketing, product development and many of the things that took me over a decade to learn.
It was high energy, go-go-go from the time they arrived to the time they left and within our time together, not only was their speaking, presentation and business development skills put to the test and pushed to the limits but they were also tasked with impromptu challenges that literally tested their ability to work together and deliver top-notch presentations to extremely diverse audiences.
. It was so inspiring. I get chill bumps just thinking about it. I saw each one of them being transformed to another level of mastery right before my eyes … right then I knew the end result would be nothing less than fabulous. With each day, the tasks got harder and harder and the stakes kept getting higher and higher, and although no contestants got eliminated, their success with each task gave them an opportunity to earn them “The Mic”.
Central to our time together I personally taught the contestants my “12-step blueprint” that I developed over 15 years in the professional speaking industry. Each day the contestants got up to a hearty breakfast prepared by our chef and then bright and early they were given ‘speakertunities’ and challenges to get them one step closer to the ultimate grand prize of landing a 20-minute keynote spot on The Big Stage at my annual Leaderpreneurship Conference, The Full Throttle Experience and the coveted title of…THE KEYNOTE!

There is so much more to share so please be sure to go to our KEY NOTE page listed below but, before I go, as a fellow cast member of season one with a bit of an inside scoop, I’d like to mention that there is still an ongoing argument amidst some of the cast members from both seasons whether Delatorro should even be listed as a cast member!!!
Some are saying that he wasn’t really playing a part at all!
He was just 100% Delatorro … down to serious business and dishing out speaking tasks and business assignments at the speed of light to cast members who were sleep deprived, nervous and never able to feel amply prepared for what he was going to throw at them next! We’re just saying! We love you Del, you’ve made us all better and thank you for sharing your DREAM with us. May it change the world not just on TV but in real lives everywhere? It has changed ours.
Speaking of dishes, did I mention that each day within the gorgeous Tampa Bay, set of that 10,000+ square foot, 10 bedroom mansion that the cast members were wined and dined with the finest of cuisine created by the culinary skills of Chef Gaston D. Merideth ?!
Delatorro, my friend, you are alright with me. I don’t care what they say about you.
