Great question. Most of the online speaker training programs teach you how to share a story and NOT how to sell your story. You can be the most phenomenally gifted speaker and win all the greatest awards in the world but if you do not understand the business side of speaking, the branding, marketing, sales, and psychology of your client, you will NEVER be a professional speaker and create a sustainable business. We focus on teaching you the business side of speaking. You will ALWAYS be more successful when you are a great salesperson.
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 paid $25,000 for a 6-month coaching package and was told it would take at least 6 months to become a speaker. No got zero results. My 21-year-old client has booked 10 speeches in the last year and recently spoke at IKEA. Another client booked a speech at Lockheed Martin, a Fortune 500 company, within months of purchasing our GPS program.
Look at 99% of the competitors and they will have little or no corporate experience. They have had a lot of speak to sell experience in the personal development space but if you want to command the $10,000+/speech, you need a mentor that has global corporate experience. Christopher used to work at American Express on 40 Wall Street in New York City and built out global sales decks for clients like: Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft and IBM. He teaches you how to communicate with corporations that will pay you the highest price point.
