Beta Tester program begins on December 18, 2017 and will run for 4 weeks. I am only accepting a limited number of students by application only. If you are accepted, you will be notified.
+ How will you select beta testers?
Apply. We are looking for a balance of different speaking types, experiences and specialties. Our speakers embrace each other's differences and lend perspective. Last time our 400 speaker applications ranged from robotics, Feng Shui, nutrition, coaching to creativity fields.
+ How much?
This program is at no cost to you--it's completely FREE, but only this one time. When I open this course in 2018, it will sell for $997.
+ What do I have to do?
- Actively participate in the Facebook group for accountability and group coaching
- Join the weekly coaching calls
- Complete the weekly surveys on each unit + a final survey throughout the program in order to provide me with feedback. I will read everything you submit.
- If you have a good experience and results, I will ask you to give a testimonial so that I can showcase your great results on my website.
+ Is this your course on how to get booked to speak at TED?
No, this beta course is for your speaker promotional materials for speaking at events on-stage and online. You can get on the waitlist for "Step On The Red Dot™: the only step-by-step system to get booked to speak at TEDx" here. It opens annually in early spring.
+ Are there any pre-requisites?
This course is open to new speakers and more experienced speakers.
You'll want to nail down your 3 talk titles and summaries and make sure they are getting you booked to speak. You'll have both motivation and material for your Speaker Bio & Promo Sheet.
If you want to work on your talk topics more, I recommend joining the intensive group coaching program Get Booked to Speak in a Week™: from idea to 'We want you!.
