Professional Speaker Coaching

Professional Speaker Coaching

Professional speaker coaching has been a passion and a specialty of mine for more than 11 years.

You’re in the right place if you are:

a. An aspiring speaker who wants to get paid to speak, or
b. A professional speaker who wants to get to the next level in your speaking career

Aspiring speakers please visit my home page for details on how to get started and what it really takes to become a successful public speaker.

Professional speakers, this post is for you!


Professional Speaker Coaching – Where To Begin

As a professional speaker, you need to know that there are a very particular set of things that will significantly improve your career. These are the things that have the greatest impact.

Before I tell you what they are, I want to tell you HOW I know what is ESSENTIAL for you to do, and why I’m so certain that these are the ‘career catalysts’ to focus on.


Why Choose Me As Your A Professional Speaker Coach?

How to become a motivational speakerMy name is Alexander Van Buren. I’m the owner of The Alexander Speakers Bureau. We have more than 3,000 speakers on our roster, and our clients range from mid-sized companies to some of the biggest organizations and associations in the world. Microsoft and the US Army have both called us and asked us to provide a public speaker or trainer for them.

Almost no speakers bureaus actually coach speakers. It’s not their job. But more than 10 years ago, I began coaching speakers on the side, by request, because so many of them didn’t have the necessary marketing materials, video, website, etc. to actually get booked with any frequency, much less at top-dollar.

I know what the highest paid, most booked, most successful speakers are doing because we book them week in and week out. And because our clients TELL US why they chose speaker A instead of speaker B. (we always submit 3 speakers for a client to choose from).

They tell me why the BETTER speaker didn’t get the job. That’s right. They tell me why they did NOT choose a certain speaker. It’s because their website was X, their video was Y, and their 1-sheet was Z.. And X-Y-Z are the mistakes most all speakers are making. They won’t gell the speaker these things because it’s too embarrassing for them to do so. Why would they do that? But they’ll tell me.

So I know what’s ‘behind the curtain’. I know what companies and associations want, and don’t want, why they choose their speaker, what they’ll pay more for, and how they decide who to book. I know exactly what your video, 1-sheet, website, copy, sales presentation, etc. need to look like.

One of the best speakers on my roster closes 7 out of 10 leads I send him. I asked him how he did it and he told me. VERY few speakers know how to do this!

I asked several of my speakers who now earn $25,000 per speech how they moved up from $5,000 a speech to their super-high fee. And they told me.

It’s true. I have one-of-a-kind inside knowledge of what it takes to be a very highly paid professional speaker. And I can teach you how to do it.

That is how I’ve coached speakers to get standing ovations every single time they present. And that is how I’ve helped speakers to take their speaking fees from $5,000 per speech to $25,000 per speech. And that’s how I know how to help speakers get booked a LOT.
