Speaking Business Audit
You may be the best speaker in the world but if you aren’t getting booked and you are relying on income from your speaking then you aren’t going to be a speaker for very long.
If you aren’t getting the bookings, you think you should be, it might be because your materials are missing the mark. You need someone who can look at your profile through the eyes of a booker to tell you what you need to do differently so that you get booked.
With more than 20 years’ experiences of selling speakers to Corporates for 4, 5 and 6 figure fees I can save you a lot of time by pin pointing exactly what's letting you down and identify where you can immediately improve so that you can get more bookings and earn higher fees. Be warned I won’t pull my punches, I’ll tell you the hard truth about what doesn’t work based on my experience in the industry. This is going to be more of a Simon Cowell rather than a Len Goodman experience - so may not be for you.
If I can’t identify any actions that will help you, I won’t charge you.
How does it work?
I will send you a questionnaire about your Speaking Business so that I can look into all aspects of how you present yourself to potential bookers. I will review this and note my findings. I'll then book in a telephone / video call of 45 to 60 minutes with you so that I can take you through my findings in person and explain everything to you one to one. You can record the call so that you can then refer back to it (or we can record it for you)
“I really can't recommend a session with Maria highly enough. With her deep and dedicated experience both from the client and the speaker angle she has the ability to give you the most eye-opening insights that can completely renew your speaking career. She pushes you right out of your comfort zone and ingrained habits- and gives you both the inspiration and the actionable tools to completely reinvent and reposition yourself to keep in step with what the speaking world needs “ Sahar Hashemi
“I’ve been a full time professional speaker for 17 years and have spoken at conferences all over the world but this was still the best money I’ve ever spent to take my business to the next level. A thorough, honest appraisal of what I can improve on and 20 action points to take away from the 90 minutes session with Maria. Fabulous." Philip Hesketh
I have just experienced a Speaker Business Appraisal with Maria Franzoni and I was blown away by the quality and quantity of useful tips packed into the session. I had assumed there would be some feedback, and coaching, and a few useful tips, but Maria over-delivered by a country mile. She was direct, decisive, clear, focussed, thorough, and 100% switched on to my business and needs for the whole session. I was bombarded with incredibly useful tips and I agreed with every single one. She had a useful external point of view and utilised her years of experience in the industry to cut to the chase. Brilliant. Paula Reid
“The speaker appraisal with Maria was simply excellent. Maria is clear, honest, kind of brutal yet inspiring. I’m buzzing. The session will undoubtedly help take my speaking business to the next level, and beyond!”. Nick Saunders
"I had a speaking business appraisal with Maria, and was very impressed and grateful for her advice. She made such thoughtful and practical suggestions, with ideas that were very valuable to me beyond my speaking business. Her advice will help me achieve my goals faster than I could have on my own." Mark Fritz
"QJ and I both found the session really useful and practical and want to rush off and do everything!" Henry Rose Lee
“Spending an hour with Maria was better than spending a whole day at a speakers Bootcamp. She really knows her stuff and picked up exactly where I was not clear, not focussed and helped me to find my own voice in my materials.” Geeta Sidhu-Robb
