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.

PLUS THIS BONUS

You’ll work with Maria to create a minimum of 6 pieces of video content which we will share with our clients and prospects on our social media platforms to kick start your momentum.

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

"Maria is one of the few who train speakers to speak/sell/market who actually knows what they are talking about. In a market where many of the "experts" have never even run a successful speaking business themselves, Maria stands out. If you want to get your advice on how to be a successful speaker from someone who really knows what is working in the market today, then she has to be your go to."  Gavin Ingham

“Amazing!  Led to 6 bookings in quick succession by transforming how I package, ‘sell’ and create value through my speaking. GO!” Jamie Edwards, Founder and Purpose Maker®, Purpose Republic LLP 

"I strongly recommend working with Mary. She helped me as a professional speaker to develop my speaking business. And even more important to me, Mary helped me to be a better speaker and to have more impact with my audiences. Whether your are a professional or occasional speaker, give Mary a chance to help you with her amazing, very practical and (speaker's) life changing tools and insights!" Bruno Marion 

“I have had the pleasure of working with Mary on a number of client events.  This has included in my role as a professional public speaker brought in to support her workshops, while I have benefitted greatly from her vast experience when developing and delivering leadership and development events of my own.  Her expertise in developing meaningful, impactful and well-planned training and workshop events becomes clear the moment you start to work with her.  She played a key role in helping me to stretch myself and deliver a higher quality of event for corporate clients in Europe and North America.  At a time when clients are always demanding a high quality of output from events, Mary has the depth of experience and talent necessary to ensure a positive outcome and excellent delegate feedback.” Mark Gallagher

"The ideas presented and the solutions uncovered during the exercises have proved helpful. I’m so glad I carved out the time to attend; time and money well spent." Allister Frost

"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"  Philip Hesketh   

"Maria's advice helped me pivot my offer, double my rates and secure a new corporate client after they saw me speak at an industry conference. Thanks Maria!" Minnie von Mallinckrodt-Grant

"Man O Man, the course really kicked my plan into place. It gave me real clarity around what I do … “ Alison Edgar

"I have enjoyed working with Mary twice so far on developing my speaking business, and I’m certainly looking forward to our continued working relationship. Mainly because she is providing extremely useful content and feedback, and partly because she is fun, supportive and positive to work with. It’s a great time right now (during COVID19) to work on your speaking business, content, delivery, messaging, and Mary is perfectly placed to help with that." Paula Reid

"Maria truly is an industry guru" – Tom Kenyon-Slaney – Chairman London Speaker Bureau
