Compliments of Karen Donaldson, Executive Public Speaking Coach, Self-Leadership & Certified Confidence Coach, International Speaker
“Helping Coaches, Authors And Experts Easily & Quickly Land Speaking Gigs And Clients.”


In this FREEBIE  I have listed organizations and events that you can reach out to to speak at. I’ve even categorized them to make it super simple for you to use!

Here’s the short about who I am…

My name is Karen Donaldson, your partner in crime, ready to arm you with exactly what you need, so that you can position yourself to have a successful and lucrative speaking business; land the right speaking gigs and clients.

I’m a no fluff type of coach. I absolutely love speaking, love helping entrepreneurs confidently bring their authentic voice to the stage, love helping experts get booked and acquire clients through speaking and last but not least, I love helping experts get paid their worth.

I have been speaking for over 20 years, coaching for over 10 years and I am in love with my life and the people that I’m blessed to work with. I’m the communication coach to politicians, celebrities and entrepreneurs. I’m also the Cosmopolitan Magazines, body language expert.

I have coached experts speakers all over the world, most important I work closely with conference coordinators across Europe and North America because I want and need to know exactly what they are looking for, so my clients and I can continue to get booked and paid. My clients and I get paid $2000- $35,000 to speak on stages across the world.

Now, because I like to be transparent…I will tell you like it is. At the end of this cheat sheet I WILL offer you something.

However, this is only for those of you who want to fast track things, make it happen now and consistently get BOOKED and PAID to speak.
