“I spent a small fortune on training and self-development over the years, from business mastermind groups, marketing training, coaching and membership communities. After a while it’s easy to get cynical about your investments and whether it is worth it. My Speaker Express investment though has paid off big time. I now speak regularly, get paid to do so with decent fees and more importantly have great self-belief in my delivery and content. This has opened doors for my business and created real opportunities to leverage my knowledge with a clear ROI.” – Ash Taylor, www.ash-taylor.co.uk
“A year ago, I was stressing out about an (unpaid) talk at the Ada’s List Conference, that’s what brought me to Speaker Express. Last week I was standing on a stage as a featured (paid) speaker at the Women’s Equality Party conference. I’m sharing the stage with someone I hugely admire who has made a serious impact for women in the UK. They gave me 10 minutes to speak, the other speaker only 5. Thank you Speaker Express for helping me grow so much in the last year!” – Emily Hunt
Each topic is covered with a day training where half a day is delivered by an expert in their field and then the afternoon is dedicated to implement what you have learnt.
Each intake starts with a kick off work day where we work with you to map out your speaking strategy. We will also end with a graduation day and an event open to the public to showcase your work.
The result of the next level is a fully thriving speaking business (or the beginning of one, depending on where you are currently at) with paid speaking arrangements and/or you gaining clients from your gigs.
All intakes are on application only to ensure we are the right fit for each other. You results are our results and vice versa.
The next level is for people who want to truly do more than just speak, it is for the committed who want a speaking business.
