Who is it for?
I provide a one-year one-to-one speaker coaching programme for a limited number of speakers who wish to grow their speaker business. It is only for speakers who wish to make a full-time or part-time income from speaking, and it is suitable for speakers anywhere in the world.
What’s in it?
There are maximum of three places on my one-day a month programme, and maximum of ten spaces on the two hours a month programme. Both programmes provide customised coaching around all aspects of a speaking business, including fees, getting bookings, working with bureaus, creating websites and show-reels, marketing strategies and of course creating killer keynote speeches.
How does it work?
The programme normally runs from January to December, but some speakers prefer to start at different times. If this suits you better, let’s discuss it. The coaching and mentoring is delivered via Zoom, until and unless we can get together. The monthly sessions can be split into two sessions a couple of weeks apart if desired. There is work to do in between sessions, and the programme includes reasonable ad-hoc calls for advice and guidance at no extra cost.
What does it cost?
The one day a month programme costs £550 per month plus VAT, payable in advance on the first day of the month.
The two hours a month programme costs £275 per month plus VAT, payable in advance on the first day of the month.
Why work with me?
I have been in the speaking business for over thirty-five years. I have coached hundreds of speakers. I’ve been national and global president of the speaking profession, and I hold every national and global speaking award. More importantly, I’m a very nice chap and fun to work with! Here is some feedback:
“My year with Alan was transformative! I knew that I needed accountability, but he provided so much more: expertise, connections, a sounding board, and support when I needed it. My business was completely different at the end of our time together. I’d gone from confusion about how to progress to feeling like my business was an extension of who I am at heart. During tough times, Alan was understanding and supportive and helped remind me of my success. Exactly as one would hope from a first class coach and a first class person.” Sierra Modro, Certified Speaking Professional, Portland, Oregon USA
“I signed up for monthly mentoring sessions with Alan after a friend commented he’d done well from it. My income from speaking at workshops has now more than doubled compared to this time last year and the investment has more than paid off. I feel I deliver a more professional offering to clients thanks to Alan’s input. I would wholeheartedly recommend his support to anyone who wants a better speaking business.” Guy Clapperton, Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association. London, UK.
“Working with Alan, and benefiting from his long experience in the speaking business, helped me to hone my message, define my market, and realise my value. I thoroughly recommend his coaching to speakers at any stage in their career” Shaz Nawaz, Professional Speaker and Treasurer of the Professional Speaking Association. Peterborough, UK
“When I signed up for a course with Alan Stevens I thought I was getting a speaker coaching programme, you know the type – how to write talks, how to deliver, how to engage the audience, handling Q&A, preparation, persuasion, performance and what to do when the unexpected happens. Well I got all of that, but what I didn’t expect was how much more this man knows about the speaking business. Whatever I asked, Alan knew the answer. The benefits from working with Alan are enormous. If you are serious about being the best speaker you can be and elevating your business by several levels then sign up for Alan’s speaker coaching programme.” Dr Lynda Shaw, Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association. Buckinghamshire, UK
“I have had the privilege of being coached by Alan for the past 10 months and I highly recommend that speakers invest in themselves by joining Alan’s professional speaker coaching programme. It’s the best investment I have made in my speaking career. Thanks again Alan!” Gijs Hillmann, Professional Speaker. Venlo, Limburg Province, Netherlands
