Who is this course for?
This comprehensive 8 week programme is designed for anyone who wants to be paid to speak with clarity, confidence and courage at a professional level. It includes everything covered in our Speakers Masterclass plus additional modules on motivational speaking, identifying your unique message, mastering rhetoric and sales and marketing.
How long does the course take?
The programme lasts 8 weeks - but you can take longer if you wish. Each week there are several hours of video lessons and then extensive practical exercises as you develop and practice your signature keynote presentation. Your access to the materials is for life.
Why is enrollment limited?
This is a practical course, with excercises shared to camera and the opportunity to meet up for face to face sessions in our Training Center in Malmesbury. This works best if a group of students start the course together and can support and encourage each other along the way. The course leader spends a lot of time with each student providing support and feedback and so the number of students is limited to 10 per course.

We can't guarantee how much money you might make as a Motivational Speaker or Coach - as it is up to you to do your own Sales & Marketing.
