If you're here, you've probably already noticed how amazing you feel standing in front of an audience you get to influence and inspire. That delirious surge of energy you get from being on stage comes from putting together a meaningful talk and knowing your work is going to change a lot of lives.
Now imagine doing that and getting paid for it.
In the Speaking School for Women you'll not only learn how to determine which movement you want to lead, but you'll also put together a captivating speech and find out how to turn your stories and message into an income stream.
Being a well-paid speaker isn't just reserved for celebrities, politicians, and experts. In this course, you'll learn how to break into the field of public speaking and start charging $500, $1,000, $5,000 and more for your speeches. It's totally possible!
Hi, I'm Angela Lussier and I'm the teacher and creator of the Speaking School for Women. I'm also an award-winning professional speaker, six-time author, podcaster, and the founder and CEO of the Speaker Sisterhood. I've been speaking professionally since 2010 and I have a lot to share on this subject! That's me below giving my first TEDx talk in Washington, DC in the summer of 2010. I'm excited to teach you everything I've learned since starting this speaking journey.
Are you here because you want to learn how to:
- become an in-demand speaker?
- book paid speaking gigs?
- position yourself as an expert?
- understand what your work is worth?
- deliver memorable talks every time?
- create another revenue stream for your consulting business?
Perfect. You’re in the right place.
Wondering about your chances of becoming a paid speaker?
Don't sweat it if you're shy, uncomfortable asking for money, or think you have nothing to say.
(I've been there.)
You will become stronger. You will prove to yourself you can do things you think are completely out of your grasp.
Until I learned the steps I am going to teach you in this course, I was leaving thousands of dollars on the table.
I had no idea how lucrative public speaking could be until I started to learn where to go to find paying speaking engagements, how to promote myself, and how to negotiate for myself.
I've spoken for major corporations like Comcast, MassMutual, Dell EMC, Hood, Hubspot, Virgin, and Allstate Insurance. I've also presented at major colleges and universities like Babson, UMass Amherst, Smith College, and Mount Holyoke College.
I should also mention I've given over 700 presentations. That means I've made a lot of mistakes (which I share in the course) and learned a lot of lessons (which I also share!). Let me shorten your learning curve and make the process easier for you.

You need to be a celebrity to be a paid speaker.
It's too competitive to get noticed.
You need to be a pro with a huge platform to get started.
