You're doing awesome things in your business. You're downright crushing it these days. But deep down, you know there's...MORE.

You know that you have the potential to have more impact, to bring more value, and to influence more people while generating more revenue.

The key to growing your brand?
Getting in front of the right audience, with the right message, and connecting with them. Consistently.

As a Speaker, You're Looking to...

Launch, Grow and Elevate your Speaker Brand.
in just 8 Weeks.

LIVE 2:1 Strategy Sessions

Eight weeks of intense personalized coaching from two industry experts. Whether you're just starting your speaker brand or looking to optimize what you're already doing, our goal is to create maximum visibility, impact and influence, start to finish.

Speaker Brand Assets

You will build ALL the tangible assets you need to continue scaling your speaker brand, including our signature custom Speaker Reel and Speaker Kit, pitches, press release, podcast and speaker opportunities, and checklists.

Visibility Opportunities

Getting in front of the right audience with the right message on the right platforms is what ultimately makes or breaks a brand. And if you're leaving your messaging to chance, you're also leaving money on the table. Together, we will create the impactful language of your story.

We've spent years rescuing leaders who have hired the coaches; taken the workshops; and always ended up in the same place:
exhausted, frustrated and still not where they deserve to be.

We had enough. And created something better.

There are new sheriffs in town...
And we wear heels.

This is fantastic. What happens at the end of the 8 Weeks?

Our goal is for you to slide into home plate having absolutely everything you need to continue growing your speaker brand after our time together. 

We’ve all worked with coaches who promise the world, only to deliver the equivalent of a very small rural county in Idaho. Where you reach the finish line still having questions, still unsure of next steps. Usually it’s because those ‘gaps’ have been left intentionally, strategically- so that you have to invest more money in working with them if you want to see the full picture. Say it with us: YUCK.

The decisions at the end of your Experiences will not be made from a place of desperation or frustration, but rather your answers to questions like: 

  • Do I WANT to go it alone? 
  • Do I have the bandwidth, time and energy to continue building this momentum? 
  • How quickly to do I want to see BIG results?

We can support you in any number of ways after your STAR Experience, though most of our clients choose to enter our Monthly Study Hall. Twice each month, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with us and fellow speakers LIVE to dive into any and everything you’ve got going on in your speaker brand: social media, keynotes, scripts, strategy, podcasting, pitching…PLUS, you’ll get daily email support M-F. 

But let’s not put the cart before the horse. All you need to know right now is what we’ve been saying all along and that’s this: WE’VE GOT YOU. Start to finish and beyond, you won’t find a more committed, compassionate, capable duo than Whit and Erin to have in your corner cheering you on.

Let's Connect

The S.T.A.R. Speaker Experience will change your speaker brand, your business and your life. It’s a no-brainer. 

Let’s build the tools and visibility you need to get to the next level.
