SpeakHer Accelerator is for women who have a message to share, know who it's for and how it helps them in meaningful ways and is ready to turn up the volume on your outreach efforts. It's for you if you're ready to get serious, get consistent and get booked sharing your message on stages, podcasts, and any other vehicle that will allow you to establish your credibility, maximize your reach and super-charge results in your business.
How much time will the course take?
Each week, we'll meet for 60-90 minutes. Then, you'll spend additional time setting up your system and doing the work. How much time you invest is really up to you? As with many things in life, what you get out of it will be in direct proportion to what you put into it. The more time and focus you dedicate to quality research and outreach, the more quality results you'll see bubble up in return.
Since this is a pilot run, participation is doubly important. Not only will you need to dedicate focused time to the sessions and homework, but each woman will be a vital part of the community that's working together to go farther faster than we can alone. The pilot group will be limited in size, so each woman needs to be committed to the process and our group. If 2-3 hours per week isn't doable for you right now, this isn't likely the best time for you to invest in SpeakHer Accelerator.
How long until I make back my investment?
Whether you're pursuing paid speaking opportunities or speaking to grow your business, getting a return on an investment under $1,000 shouldn't take long. I've literally never seen this process not work. That said, it's a process to find the right opportunities, create meaningful connections with the people who book and turn those connections into bookings. If you're pinching pennies and will be stressed about getting the investment back as soon as possible, please don't join. That's too much stress for you, and it brings the wrong spirit into the group and into your outreach efforts. Join if you can enjoy the process, work the process with a positive vibe and have patience as you wait for good efforts to bear good fruit.
What if i don't have my message ready yet?
There's one thing you have to have before you start the research, outreach and follow up process of booking speaking opportunities...Your Message! It doesn't have to be perfect yet. In fact, it won't be perfect yet because you'll refine as you get your reps in sharing it. But you do need to know what your message is in broad strokes so you can talk to podcast hosts, event planners and organizers about what you can offer their audiences. If your message isn't ready for prime time, maybe Signature Talk Workshop is the right next step for you! It's a 6-week group program to help you craft your signature message that becomes the cornerstone of your speaking efforts for years to come.

WHAT IF I'M TERRIFIED TO SPEAK IN FRONT OF PEOPLE?
Most everyone has some degree of nervousness around public speaking. You've probably heard it's many people's #1 fear. More scary than death! If your fear of speaking is keeping you quiet and your message unheard, it's time to do something about it. In the private SpeakHers Facebook group, I'll soon be offering a free Speak with Confidence training. It's a 3-module training workshop that teaches the mindset and skillset to overcome the fear that keeps you quiet and practical tactics to cultivate confidence as a speaker. These are the exact principles I learned when I went from zero speaking experience to stepping onto stages in front of thousands. They worked for me, and they can work for you, too. Hop on over to the Speakers Facebook group and join us!
"Lori’s patience, understanding and attention to detail was instrumental in helping me recognize opportunities that I was missing and her coaching guidance created winning strategies for overcoming that. In working with Lori, I found my true north as a professional speaker. Lori is an excellent coach and tailors her approach according to both the needs of the event organizers who hire speakers and the speaker, themselves. The course was very beneficial to my continued growth and success as a speaker and I recommend Lori, without hesitation, to anyone interested in improving their skills, network, and professional image as a speaker."
"Before the Workshop, I was searching for my next step, my next season, my ultimate calling. It was the push I needed. The focus I needed. The commitment and fellowship I needed. I never imagined calling myself a speaker or communicator until this workshop and the events that led up to it. Now, I'm walking boldly, facing my fears.
Should you join the Workshop? YES!! This not only helps you did deep, organize your thoughts, and have accountability, but it truly forces you to face fears and find the conviction and resolution in your heart that THIS is what you are meant to do. If you want to know, DO this workshop!"
