THERE IS A GREAT SPEECH LIVING INSIDE OF YOU.
LET’S WRITE IT & THEN GET YOU OUT THERE TO GIVE IT.
Now taking applications to begin in Spring/Summer 2019
Now taking applications to begin in Spring/Summer 2019
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.
Should you apply and be accepted, you can choose one of the following two options. (And, don’t forget, you can do both! Be sure to apply so that we can talk about what’s best for you.)
>> Option 1: Write Your Talk with KC & Deliver it Powerfully.
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 1 day or a week-long 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.
>> Option 2: Strategy Day for Building Your Thought Leadership Platform and Landing Speaking Engagements
In this one day intensive you will create a solid strategy and implementation plan for building your thought leadership platform through landing high-leverage speaking engagements, as well as have support in creating your speaker page so you can effectively market yourself as a speaker.
I offer 1 day or week-long 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.
1 day or 1 week long. 10-5 each day. A phone call before and after our in person intensive.
Morning tea & treats and a working luncheon each day.
Structured focus on refining your talk’s content and your delivery of it.
Deep inner work on aligning yourself even more fully with your message and your ability to give it authentically, charismatically and from the heart.
Intensive inner work with KC to release any fear, resistance or self doubt that has been holding you back in sharing your message.
Exploration and integration of KC’s unorthodox yet highly effective public speaking practices.
For those doing a 1 day strategy intensive to build your thought leadership platform and land speaking engagements, you leave with clear copy and plan for your speaker page, a clear strategy of the key, high leverage engagements in your field to pursue that can position you and your message powerfully, a solid list of speaking engagements to apply for and go after, and step by step guidance and plan for you and your team on how to secure your speaking engagements.
Private time in nature or at your hotel to complete an outside assignment or two that I will arrange for you.
Travel and lodging not included, but accommodation recommendations nearby are provided upon enrollment, in addition to restaurant and hike recommendations.
This intensive work with me is by application only and space is extremely limited due to my schedule.
Private client programs start at $4900.
I can only take a very small number of private clients.
To apply, please fill out this application. We will get back to you shortly.
I can’t wait to read your application and to learn more about you and what message is longing to come through you.
To you and your voice
