Welcome To Speak, Get Booked, Get Paid 12 Month Academy.

It’s Time to Impact The World With Your Message and Get Paid What You’re Worth.

**Early Bird Enrolment is now OPEN**

Now is your time!

It’s time to share your message and expertise with the world.
It’s time impact more people.
It’s time to learn how to tell your story and turn it into sustainable and lucrative speaking business.
It’s time to stop speaking for FREE.
It’s time to take your speaking, coaching, and expertise and grow it to the next level.
It’s time to start getting paid what you’re worth.

I’mKaren D! I remember getting started with my speaking business and not really knowing what I was doing.

I was happily accepting honorariums of $200 and $500 just to speak about what I loved. When I first started speaking over 20 years ago, I never knew that speakers got paid as much as they did.

5 years into my speaking career I was blessed with a mentor who showed me the ins and outs of the speaking industry. It was like a veil was lifted from off over my eyes.

Now I get paid to speak world wide and my clients get paid anywhere from $2500 – $25,000 per speaking engagement and are flown across the world living their dream.

If you’re serious about maximizing your Impact in the World and building a sustainable speaking business (whether you’re starting from scratch or simply tired of speaking for free), knowing how to handle the “we have no budget” conversation, and increasing your take home income moving forward…then please CONTINUE READING…

Yes. You can have it ALL!

Many people believe that all you need to be is a top performer when you get on stage to build your speaking career, but that’s just wetting your toes.

Here’s the reality: There are a lot of great speakers out there. However, most of them are speaking for FREE or not at all.

For many, it has nothing to do with their ability to deliver an outstanding talk. However, if you can’t get the attention of the event coordinator it doesn’t matter how great a speaker you are.

It’s a balance of meeting the needs of the event planner, their audience, motivating and educating, having solid marketing systems, clarity on your expertise and positioning yourself as the go-to person in your industry.

As long as you know 1) What to do, and 2) How to do it the right way, there is no reason your calendar shouldn’t be filled.

That’s what the Speak, Get Booked, Get Paid 12-month academy offers.

Over the first 90 days, you’ll get the foundation to go out and start making income.

After the 90 days, it’s all about building the infrastructure, brand awareness, your presence, your delivery, building your network, marketing systems, bookings, speaking and more bookings etc. 

Our most recent academy members have been…

Booked to speak in India:

Deliver Lunch and Learns across Canada & the US,

On TEDx stages in the UK:

Booked by corporations:

Booked as the NBC’s official Red Carpet host for the Bill Board Music Awards or the American Music Awards.

Imagine being booked to speak and flown to the Bahamas for 6 speaking engagements?

That’s what happening right now for one of our academy members.

This can happen for you to if you allow it to!
