Investing in the creation of your keynote speech will take you places in your business, your personal mission & your contribution to the world that are beyond your wildest dreams. My job is to mine for the diamonds of your wisdom, your intelligence and your story, and to help you put pieces into a captivating, clear structure. I then work with you on learning how to deliver it with total ease, grace, a touch of humor and authentic presence.
I’ve worked with women gracing the stages of TED and TEDx, the American Heart Association, Bioneers, Emerging Women, Lamaze International, Wisdom 2.0, Princeton, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, The World Domination Summit and other prestigious stages.
I’ve had the honor of helping authors, entrepreneurs, leaders of foundations, Olympians and all manner of women on a mission, to craft the talk of their dreams and get it out into the world. They elicit standing ovations and inspire action. As a result, they receive offers for further talks, grow their tribe, experience an increase in positive reputation and notoriety, catalyze business opportunities, dramatically increase their income, and most of all…they fulfill their soul’s need to make a big, meaningful impact on this world.
That’s the power of getting out there and speaking from the passion and wisdom of your heart.
And once we’re done with your talk, our speaker agency can help you land speaking engagements. This is where most busy emerging women thought leaders fall short: they don’t have the time or the bandwidth to do all the logistics necessary to build a truly successful speaking career. We are here to do that for you, so that your message spreads far & wide and you obtain the financial & reputation success your wisdom deserves.
Your talk must position you as the thought leader you know you are, and be centered around the major idea or perspective that you stand for. It must be easy for people to turn around and share with others. This is how your message spreads and how you build your following. This is how your leadership grows.
It must also be easy for you to remember. I’m not a fan of you having to memorize your talk word-for-word. Rather, I’ll support you in pulling everything you need to say “out” of you and then work with you in putting it into a structure that you can speak from, with ample room for the magical spontaneity that can only arise with a live audience.
You will walk away from our work together with an “accordion style” talk. We will work on refining an 18-20 minute talk, however you will easily be able to shorten your talk to a 10-15 minute talk, or expand it to an hour long keynote. You will have a clear talk structure outline that will assist you in this.
You will work with me for either a 1 or 3 day private client intensive. These intensives are held in my magical home Sedona, Arizona on Oak Creek at the foot of Cathedral Rock. We also have a phone call before and after as part of our program.
You will have access to my highly acclaimed virtual home study course, Speak Up for Your Business. I will have you watch certain training videos in it and do certain pieces of homework before our intensive. As part of the course, you will have access to my exclusive Public Speaking Training videos that will help you with your delivery and with turning any nervousness or fear into grace and authentic confidence. You can then use this training course in the future to help you write any future talks.
After your talk is complete, you will have the option of being represented by our speaker agency for emerging women thought leaders. We guide you in getting your speaker marketing materials ready (speaker page, etc). We work with you to develop a solid strategy for landing speaking engagements designed to help you to obtain clout in your industry and command speaker fees. We develop and maintain relationships with companies, organizations and events on your behalf and pitch you to speak at their events. We then negotiate fees for you and handle the arrangements for your speaking engagements This is a 6-12 month engagement designed to bolster your reputation, recognition, and speaking income. It will forever change the course of your career and your life.
I offer 1 or 3 day in person intensives with clients to develop and practice giving their talks. This is for the woman who is serious about crafting and delivering a world changing talk.
