Helping Speakers to be more bookable and charge higher fees

“I want to congratulate you on the excellent work that you are doing to support speakers. It’s been a tough few years and having you bring your skills and experience to “this side of the fence” is exciting.”

Jon Duchinsky, serial entrepreneur and author

All the Tools you need to Build a Profitable Speaking Business


Are you a speaker, author, trainer, or coach struggling to get booked? Do you find yourself lost in a sea of celebrities, politicians, and experts, all vying for the same speaking opportunities? The speaking business is easy to enter but hard to stay in, and standing out can feel like an insurmountable challenge.

Imagine being a talented speaker with a powerful message, yet constantly overlooked by event organisers. You know you have what it takes, but the competition is fierce. Celebrities, Olympians, cybersecurity wizards – they all seem to have the edge. You're not alone in feeling this way. Even well-known names find themselves under booked because they don't know what it takes to be truly bookable. The frustration builds as opportunities slip through your fingers, and the dream of building a profitable speaking business seems to drift further away.

What would it mean if you could look at your business through the eyes of a speaker booker? With over two decades of experience in booking speakers internationally, I understand what it takes to stand out and get chosen. Whether you're just starting out or looking to grow your speaking business, you’ll find the tools you need to be more bookable and charge higher fees. 

This is about giving you the strategies and tactics that will get you booked and paid to speak, again and again.  Our approach is different, focusing on what makes you bookable and setting you up for success. Some of the most highly paid speakers today are those who've worked with us to get booked solid despite being relatively unknown.

We know how to navigate the competitive speaking market. We'll help you not just stay in the market but thrive in it, growing the speaking business you've always wanted.
