Speaking in a different world. Be Ready – Get Booked!

The world has changed and it’s unlikely to go back to what we knew.  What worked for you in your speaking business in the past isn’t going to work now, or tomorrow.  You need to rethink, reset and reinvent.  And we will help you to do just that.  Watch this video for an overview.

We have limited places available. If you would like to apply click here! 

HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL GET 

Essential but often overlooked basics that the top 1% of speakers never do (and why many are still getting booked during a pandemic)
Essential, but in our collective years of experience, often overlooked basics. Mistakes speakers make time and time again that stop them getting booked! The content here also serves to provide some foundation learning and skills that underpin the remainder of the programme.

Understanding the new market-place and ensuring you are relevant
We have been busy talking to other speaker bureau owners around the world and have gathered an overview of what is going on in the global market-place now and the possible scenarios for the coming years.  In this session we will look at what that means for you so that you are relevant and therefore bookable.

Quality scoping guaranteed to get you more business and more than “just a speech”
Being able to scope brilliantly is an essential skill, in not just digging down into what the client really wants, but also enhances your personal gravitas with your client. By asking quality incisive questions, their level of confidence and trust in you naturally increases and makes you the speaker they would choose. Additionally, it serves to identify potential options for you beyond “just a talk”, that can lead into increased income for you!

How to build an Expert Profile that gets you highly paid
This session is to help you to establish your positioning as a go to expert/specialist and not just a speaker.  By doing so it is much easier to attract clients to you who will want to work with you because your value is clear to them.  This is one of the hardest things to do on your own and it’s vital, we will use our combined 50 years’ of experience in the industry to help you nail this.

Deliver your expertise using this simple framework so that it is more powerful, memorable and actionable.
Once you have a good understanding of what the market and clients need now, you are now able to develop your relevant, memorable content, content that makes it easy for your audience to act on! (remember, it’s all only ever about your audience!) This session provides you with all you need to ensure your content is memorable, relevant, and easy to listen to and not an information overload.

How to easily harness the power of video to get more business
High paying clients need to see you in action to be confident to buy.  This session will look at several types of video and give you the templates to create them, with or without a professional film crew, so that you can start getting known by the right people and you make it easy FOR THEM to choose you.

What (JUST) a few of our speakers have said of our programmes:

I’ve learnt so much from this course. I’m writing this from home reflecting how sometimes, because we’ve been in the business for a while, we might feel that we have nothing to learn. However good you are, there is no pinnacle from which it is impossible to improve. Football managers are always going on about how “if you stand still you go backwards.” I think its probably true of anything including your speaking business. I’m so pleased I signed up. Jack Milner, Comedy Director at Stand Up & Deliver

"The must-do course for speakers who want to rock. Maria and Mary bring buckets of expertise, insight and support. They know their stuff.  Speaking in a Different World takes you on a steep and thoroughly enjoyable learning curve with wonderful peer to peer support, a safe place to stretch and grow all underpinned with expert insider insights.  Don't hesitate to sign up.” Gerrie Hawes, Corporate Behavioural Psychologist

"I’m nearing the end of this course and it has far exceeded my expectations! I’ve learnt a lot, enjoyed it, met some other wonderful speakers and feel confident in the growth of my business. Mary Tillson & Maria Franzoni are incredibly generous with their time and knowledge. I highly recommend this course!" Anna Hemmings, Olympic & World Champion Marathon Kayaker.

"I’m in the same cohort as Anna and completely echo her thoughts. Don’t hesitate to apply, Mary Tillson and Maria Franzoni are game changers 🙏🏽" Gitanjali Trevorrow-Seymour, Professional Possibilist & Executive Coach

“The course was fantastic value for money, as I have at least doubled my speaker rates as a result. It has also step changed my knowledge and skills to be a speaker who is booked far more often. Do the course, you will appreciate every minute of it.” Jeremy Schwartz - Former Body Shop CEO

"How good is the Speaking in a Different World course? Put it this way, getting your speaker bio and profile sorted to PERFECTION is worth the ENTIRE COURSE FEE. PLUS, you get everything you need to be totally ready to speak in our ‘different world’ and to GET BOOKED. Serious about your speaking career? Invest in yourself now."  QJ Speaker Director & Personal Manager for Henry Rose Lee

I could have gone to Waterstones and bought and read 50 books on speaking - but I would not have learned as much as I did, on this programme. My sincere thanks to you both and Sian.  We covered a lot of ground - and learning from external specialists and others on the course made it an enjoyable experience.  The programme was truly top-notch, was exceedingly good value and exceeded my expectations.  Norman Jackson, Business Speaker and Coach

"I just wanted to say these last few weeks have just simply been amazing - so huge huge thank you! You and Mary have both really made me think hard and think differently, and I have found myself really digging deep into what it is I am doing and who I am doing this for and who I want to help/inspire." Marie Oakes, Wellbeing Expert

"Maria and Mary have created a unique group experience that I have found invaluable during lockdown. Their content has been really tailored to what I need as a professional speaker, raising me to new standards of delivery and marketing all of my services, not just speaking. They have been absolutely spot on with what I needed. The group has gelled and, given the standard of the group, I'm stunned that I'm part of it. The value I've gained from the feedback and help from such a superb set of highflyers has been totally gobsmacking and was a huge unexpected bonus of joining this programme." Penny Pullan - Virtual Leadership Expert

“Speaking in a Different World,” a new and timely mentoring programme springing from the Speaking Business Academy and led by Maria Franzoni and Mary Tillson is a game changer. End of story!  This fabulous duo are consummate experts in how to find your voice, make your mark, and stay ahead and ready for the changing  market conditions in the global arena of speaking and offering your expertise to clients. The six modules of rich content are designed to raise your game and create big results. But content alone can’t do this. The gold dust is in the dynamic delivery of this team, along with their personal investment in enabling you to put the learning into action.  Like Alice, “I knew who I was when I woke up this morning, but I think I’ve changed several times since then.”    I have already stepped into another dimension in manifesting my professional vision thanks to Maria and Mary.” Diana Theodores, Performance Coach

"I was lucky enough to meet and be coached by Maria Franzoni quite early in my move from team building to speaking.  I think she saved me 5 to 10 years of expensive trial and error." Tom Morley, Rockstar Activator
