BuildMySpeakingBiz Boot Camp – Private Access

Thanks for registering for the BuildMySpeakingBiz Boot Camp. In this series of six sessions, I’ll “download” over a decade’s worth of experience in the speaking business to you… sharing lessons learned from my own work as an agent and manager to speakers, as well as observations from working with some of the world’s best speakers and thought leaders.

The goal for this course is to equip you with the knowledge and resources you need to establish a solid foundation for your own world class speaking business.

There is a form at the bottom of the page that you can use to ask me any questions you have along the way — this comes directly to me and I’ll get back to you as quickly as possible (usually within 48 hours).

Thanks again, and I’m glad to help you on your journey.

To Your Speaking Success,
