Let's Build Your Empire

I spent 15+ years producing events, working with artists, speakers, agents, and talent buyers from almost every big-name agency and bureau in the business.

So I know how the high rollers roll, and what they’re looking for in terms of talent.

In fact, they’re probably looking for someone just like you, right now. But you’re not quite ready to work with them just yet.

You’ve got the “wow,” but you still need the “how.”

What clients say

“I loved working with Melanie on my speakers strategy. I felt really confident that I have everything I need to create a lucrative speaking career.

She is a wealth of knowledge on the industry and I recommend that any aspiring speaker, no matter what stage you’re at in your speaking career, to work with her.”

“I hired Melanie because she had a strong background in the speaking industry with a proven track record. Yet, while I found the processes, templates and trade secrets to be priceless, the greatest value was much deeper work that allowed me to get me clearer on my message and intentions, which in turn dramatically improved all areas of my business from sales copy to my offerings and even my marketing. Melanie’s intuition is off the charts, and she provides a safe place to go beyond the nuts and bolts to the soul of one’s business.”

Why I do this

My vision is to help thousands of women and people of color lead through speaking.

The high-dollar clients are desperately searching for people just like you to grace their stages.

But their #1 complaint was always:

“It’s so hard to find a female speaker who looks solid.”

I can teach you what they mean by “solid” and how you can get there, so that you will look and feel like a $30,000 speaker.

For the last 5 years, I’ve been coaching entrepreneurs on how to raise their fees, build their speaking business, and grow their tribe. Past clients have doubled their annual speaking revenue in 1 year, and increased their fees as much as 10X in under 3 years.

You ready?

I've worked with talent & agents from:

Your career should take off, not take over.

Wish you could jack into my brain, Matrix-style, and download 15+ years of experience into simple-to-follow action steps to set up and manage your speaking business like a celebrity?

Say no more… I can help you do that.

I love working with business owners who are fueled by an inner fire and want to honor their calling to lead, to speak, and use their platform to spread powerful ideas of positive change.
