If you are a personal brand, there are numerous opportunities
that are waiting for you.
Speaking is a wonderful additional income stream and once you have things in place; the possibilities are unlimited.
The great news is you can begin straight away.
Maybe 'speaking' has been on your list for a while and you just need a bit of support and encouragement to get things moving.
Since I launched this offering in 2019 (and has been consistently updated every year to reflect changes), I have supported so many different industries.
So dig in, access everything immediately and let's get you to paid to speak; share your message and create an impact.
Perfect for you
So if you want to be invited to deliver keynotes, workshops, masterclasses; let’s work on your offering.
Or if you want to create a robust video strategy so you welcome a constant stream of your ideal clients, let’s build your plan.
If you want to elevate your personal brand and reach a wider audience, I can support your growth… i.e. how do you land (and excel once live) influential podcasts and press.
Get Hired and Paid:
If you want to figure how to navigate your offering; what you charge, how you deliver and the general speaker admin/politics… don’t worry there will be a way that will feel great.
Building confidence and communicating clearly:
Or if you finally want to make friends with your inner obstacles aka ‘I am not keen on public speaking, even though I know it is essential’ then this is going to be perfect. Don’t worry you don’t have to morph into a sleazy pants internet version of yourself, this is about doing things your way.
To communicate cleanly
To know exactly how to provide wonderful value to your audience, client, customers. No more guessing games. Instead you have a clear message that travels far and wide; even when you are not in the room.
To create an incredible impact
.Yes, you. From exactly the age and stage that you are at. To see and feel that ripple effect of the value you provide.
To be able to share your business to a greater audience.
Thank goodness we don’t have to go around with a sandwich board on our backs. We have the internet. Learning the craft of speaking can spread your message far and wide and bring in a multitude of opportunities.
You can create a new income stream
Speaking bookings can change your monthly revenue significantly and you don’t just get paid for live events, you can be hired to be speak from your office or sofa.
To welcome new customers.
A few years back, I spoke to 85 people and I didn’t have an existing relationship with any of them. Marketing terms, I welcomed 85 new potential clients into my world. The 'one to many people' model is much more effective time wise than having 85 discovery calls.
Speaking builds creditability, trust and people can see what you can do.
Websites are wonderful but people need to see the energised version of you aka how you can support their transformation.
You want to own your skills, talents, experience and knowledge but you have hesitations.
Imposter Syndrome, confidence dips, self doubt all come out to play and you want strategies to work with them (spoiler alert- they are likely to always come out to play but you can still progress). I can provide you with a go to toolkit to keep those in check.
I know you have valuable information to share that could help someone on an individual level or actually change the world.
I don’t say that flippantly. Someone is waiting for what you have to say, in the way you say it. They need to hear it from you.
I hugely value online learning. I have completed so much myself and I am very passionate about making my work accessible to study from home/wherever you choose.
Welcome to Speak UP - self study version
Launched in 2019, this course has supported 100s of people to SPEAK UP and take their personal brand to the next level.
I don't hold back in this course, I share everything I have learnt, tried and tested and observed in the last 25 years as a paid speaker.
This content will always remain fresh and the resources will always be updated but there will only ever be one payment for you. The first one.
This price of this course is specifically priced because I want you to be able to get a return on investment and quickly. People have money to spend on you, so I know you recoup what you spend on this course very quickly.
Let's dive into the programme and look at
what we will cover...
Module Three: Preparing the Behind the Scenes
Module Four: Starting the Conversation
As much as it would be lovely for Google to ‘just find us’, I always work on the basis, I have to do my share of the work.
This module is about beginning the conversation and showing that you can do the job. You will hear me talking about being intentional a lot!In this module, we build a content plan. A sustainable way to share what you do, how you do it and begin to build rapport and engage with your ideal customer/client/booker. Not only will this invite opportunities but it will elevate your personal brand.
People you have never met will get to know you. They will buy from you.This is also not about getting busier or feeling like you have to be ‘online’ all of the time. I will show you how to optimise your content, without constantly feeling like you are on a content generating hamster wheel. Ease and flow are so important to me.
In this module, I will support you to create your menu of speaking offerings. Not only will this be wonderful for bookers to be able to handpick to support their event brief but also by you doing the work i.e. stating what you can offer (and having evidence to support that you are great at what you do), you increase the chance of someone making a speedy booking; rather than going backwards and forwards in emails.We are also going to be focusing on how your offerings can welcome other collaborations. Who would benefit from what you do? 2020 saw many of us staying at home; there is so much opportunity to create masterclasses, online workshops, courses etc and solve a specific query.
Module Six: The Speaking Admin
I have been paid to speak for the last 20 years and I have learnt so much; plus made so many mistakes.This module is dedicated to the admin of speaking. Quite often the parts that no one shares.
Money; what to charge, how to get paid, negotiating, expectations, what you should ask for…moving from a casual email thread to being confirmed. I will also talk about having an agent; do you need one? What are the pros and cons? How to find one, what to ask for and how to build a strong professional relationship.
We will also be going into detail about ‘exposure’, when you may want to speak for free, how to navigate awkward conversations, selling from the stage, maintaining your boundaries whilst remaining warm and generous. Plus social media, the long term and short term implications of the contract, how to build long term relationship, protecting your content… so much more. I will be bringing my 5 years of agent experience in too so I can show the behind the scenes from the agent’s and booker’s point of view.
