Great question. Most of the online speaker training programs teach you how to speak and not how to get paid to speak. Even the ones that teach you how to get paid focus primarily on a speak to sell model which is when you get on stage -- where they don't pay you or you have to pay or sponsor them -- and you sell your product, program, or consultant services. There is nothing wrong with this model but our GPS program helps you have get paid as a keynote speaker before you ever step on stage.
Here are actual competitor programs:
1. Two industry heavyweight speaker training programs don't even mention a speaking reel. A speaking reel for a professional speaker is like a resume for a job applicant -- it's the most basic element of a professional speaker.
2. One client mentioned that his previous program said that you have to train for six months before you can start getting paid as a speaker. You can start getting paid tomorrow as a speaker if you understand how to brand yourself and present yourself as a professional speaker.
3. Limited experience: There are 5 main categories who will hire you:
5.) Colleges & Universities
Most of my competitors have had little or no corporate experience. They have had a lot of speak to sell experience in the personal development space. Christopher has been hired by all five categories and he used to work at American Express on 40 Wall Street in global sales strategies. He teaches you how to communicate with corporation that will pay you the highest price point.
