The Business of Speaking: 

The online strategy with lifetime access and group accountability! 

Welcome to the Business Of speaking e-course. The online course with support to secure paid speaking opportunities.

This is the place where professional speakers, get paid! I am living proof that it works!


I wanted to create this online course because I was growing a little frustrated seeing really good speakers not get the right opportunities to speak in front of the right audience and get paid. So I wanted to create a really informative and effective course with additional support from me that looks at the business of speaking and ways you can monetise it.

I get a mixture of paid and non-paid engagements and possibly 90% of the time, the non-paid engagements lead to other paid work and times I end up getting paid more if I didn't get paid to speak at an event. All of these strategies will be in the course.

This online course, however, isn't about helping people to speak, but rather, it’s about honing their existing speaking skills, creating their marketing mechanisms, raising their profile and putting this in front of the bookers. #Branding #Visibility


The online course covers:

  • Understanding the speaking industry
  • Knowing the different speaking models and what is best for you
  • Support on your speaker sheet, showreel etc
  • Working on your hook, niche and your formula
  • How to research your area of expertise for speaking engagements
  • Knowing what to charge
