Hi Craig, Good news from Edmonton… I just signed my biggest contract to date. Thanks for all your coaching and support… keep up the great work, you really are making a difference in the lives of others.”
Craig Valentine, 1999 World Champion of Public Speaking
Dear Fellow Speaker,
Would you like to become a profitable speaker that others sign up and line up to see?
Do you want to make more money in one hour than most speakers make in many months?
How would you like to have the confidence and competence to KNOW you can connect with any audience at any time?
Well, guess what? You can’t! That’s right. You can’t, unless…
…you master each piece of public speaking.
What do you mean by mastering each piece?
Well, if you want to create a masterpiece, you first have to master each piece.
There are several pieces to the public speaking puzzle such as storytelling, keynoting, delivery, back of the room sales, humor, owning the stage, structure, content, and more.
Unfortunately, many would-be-profitable speakers don’t have access to the tools needed to master each of them and so their careers stay stuck in place.
The Reason Speakers Fail in this Business
Think about it. Some would-be-world-class speakers can tell great stories but can’t put them into a keynote that others will pay to see. What do you think happens to them as a result? Nothing! Not many organizations will pay you just for a story.
Other would-be-profitable speakers deliver fantastic keynote speeches but leave hundreds of thousands of dollars on the table each year by failing to master back of the room sales. What do you think this failure is costing these speakers? I know the answer. A speaking career.
Many should-be-constantly-booked speakers fail to get engagements because, although they have wonderful content, they fail to make their audiences laugh on a consistent basis. Would you want to be in their audience? I’ve never had a meeting planner say, “Craig, can you come in here and bore this group to death, please?”
The Profits Comes from the Pie
Do you see my point?
If you want to be that profitable speaker at the top of the meeting planners’ lists, you can’t simply master one slice of public speaking. You must master the entire pie. The profit comes from the pie.
These slices may not actually be equal in terms of importance, but it’s still important to master each of them to become the profitable speaker others sign up and line up to see. Have you mastered each of them? See for yourself.
Let’s take a quick quiz to see how you’re doing as a speaker?
10 Question Speaker Quiz
How would you rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10
(1 being pretty poor and 10 being excellent)?
You get hired and re-hired to speak on a regular basis.
You tell captivating stories and make unforgettable points.
You can give several compelling 30-90 minute keynote speeches or seminars.
You make at least an extra $3,000 to $10,000 per speech with back of the room sales and you do it without annoying your audience members.
You keep your audience laughing with relevant humor throughout your entire presentation.
You turn your live presentations into multiple streams of speaking income (i.e. products, passive income, recurring income, etc.)
You deliver your message in ways that create an experience and not just a speech.
You use spontaneity to spark the speech and make each audience feel special.
You influence your audience to actually take action on your message.
If I called you today to do a 60-minute keynote speech tomorrow (on your topic area), you would feel confident in being able to hit a home run with that audience the next day.
Well, how did you do? Did anything pop out at you that you need to improve?
The reason for the quiz is because these are the areas you must master to become the kind of speaker that’s booked often and paid well.
I firmly believe that success in speaking involves 10% talent and 90% tools.
Do you feel that you have all of the right tools?
Let My Long Road Lead to Your Shortcut
When I started as a speaker, it wasn’t easy to find these tools. In fact, it took me more than 16 years of serious endless searching, failing, falling on my face, getting back up, asking, paying, praying, testing, and tweaking before I began to figure out the systems, processes, and formulas that led me to more presentations and much more profits.
My journey literally included blood, sweat, and tears as I was simply trying to make it.
The tools were so disparate that it felt like I was searching in a thousand different directions and I was still ending up lost.
This is where the good news comes in for you. I could never find all of the necessary speaking tools in one place but you can. That’s right! YOU can. And do you know why? Because I’ve created that place… a one-stop-shop for your speaking success.

Certified World Class Speaking Coach, Semi-Finalist for 2010 World Champion of Public Speaking
From Broke to a Breakthrough
When I wrote my first book, "The Nuts and Bolts of Public Speaking", I made one mistake that prevented me from making much money. With this one misstep, I left hundreds of thousands of dollars on the table.
However, by the time I wrote my second book, "World Class Speaking", I had made the one correction that, to date, has brought in an extra $971,253.60. Simply by understanding what needed to be done (i.e. using the right tools) I met with success and, the best part is, that’s only one stream of income.
Mistakes like the one I made are being made in every area of public speaking so imagine what your speaking career could be like with constant breakthroughs like the one I had. I can tell you what your career would feel like. Like a masterpiece!
I learned more from you in one hour than I have in years of giving speeches.
You are a master of your game.
Thank you for inspiring me to find my own voice and greatness as a speaker!! Thank you!

If you're like me, you might be thinking, “But Craig, there are so many programs out there promising to teach the art of speaking. Why should I attend yours over someone else’s?
That’s a great question.
Why Learn from Me (Craig Valentine)?
There are at least 6 major reasons why you’ll want to learn from me.
Reason One: Unlike many of the current public speaking coaches, I am actually a busy speaker. That’s right. I’m out on the circuit speaking and getting paid handsomely. In other words, I’m walking my talk and I know what doesn’t work TODAY that maybe did work yesterday.
“You were the talk of the conference! People who have attended the conference for years said that this was the best session the conference has ever had.” Sarah M. Heaton, Grants Managers Network
“The one word that I kept hearing to describe your presentation was phenomenal. You were phenomenal, inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating. Thank you once again.” Tamika L. Baxley, US Probation Office, ED/PA
“You were FANTASTIC. You energized the attendees to maximize learning, network, and share. The feedback was so positive on your session. ‘Gracias’ is not enough.” Lenys M Alcoreza, National Vice President, Sales, United Healthcare
Reason Two: I have some of the most successful professional speakers of all time as guest experts including Les Brown, Willie Jolley, Patricia Fripp, Bill Cates, Darren LaCroix, Mitch Meyerson, Ed Tate, Sheryl Roush, Tina Cook, Michael Hauge, and more!
Reason Three: You should know one very important thing about me. I am not a natural. It’s second-nature now, but I’m not a natural.
Why is that important to you? If you think you are a natural speaker then, even with all the greatest tools in the world, you won’t be able to connect deeply with your audience. Why? Because in speaking you don’t want to be special to your audience. You want to be similar to them. In these courses you’ll find out why and how.
I’m simply a person who, through blood, sweat, tears, and lots of failures, has uncovered the tools that continue to work for me and for the hundreds of speakers I have coached personally and the thousands who have invested in my programs.
Reason Four: Here’s something you’ll get from me that you won’t find in most courses. Because I’m actually out there speaking all the time, you’ll hear and see live examples from my speeches that illustrate the lessons you pick up.
This helps you go beyond theory to see EXACTLY how you can apply the tools you gain in the course. This is one of the main reasons why I have thousands of customers in dozens of countries. Plus, you’ll be able to JUMP ON THE MIC (Monthly Implementation Calls) with me to put the tools from the courses to work in your speeches.
Reason Five: There is no fluff in the courses. Have you ever accessed a course and it seemed to take forever to get to something valuable and practical? Well, you don’t have to worry about that here. In fact, you’ll get the nuts and bolts. You’ll receive workbooks and action guides that I’m sure you’ll fill with notes and actions you can take to become the best speaker in your neck of the woods.
Reason Six: You’ll become a complete speaker. You see, many would-be speakers are good at one thing but poor at others. For example, some are good storytellers. But that’s not enough.
Some have a very engaging delivery. But that’s not enough.
Some are good at stories and content and delivery but even that’s not enough. For example, most speakers are missing a huge key ingredient to really making it big as a speaker. They don’t know how to sell from the back of the room.
Hard to Watch
It’s hard for me to watch some speakers because I know that, as good as they are, they won’t be in business for long. Why? Because they haven’t mastered BORS (Back of the Room Sales).
The funny little secret is that mastering back of the room sales gets you more opportunities to be in the front of the room. That’s right. Your products promote your speaking engagements. Then your speaking engagements promote your products. Once you land on this wonderful Speaker’s Cycle of Wealth, you see opportunities and money coming at you from every angle.
Name one hugely successful speaker that doesn’t have a product or know how to sell it.
But what if you Don’t SWAP (Sell Without Annoying People)
You also have those speakers who actually DO know how to sell from the back of the room but there’s one big problem. They annoy their audiences. They too won’t be in business for long, because they won’t get that all-important repeat business. After all, what good is selling from the back of the room when you’re ticking off the rest of the room?
My unknown Story
What you might not know about me is that I used to be an Events Manager and part of my job was to set up the stage for speakers at technology expos around the USA. Think about that! I was setting up the stage for the speakers when, all the while, I wished to BE the speaker. It was excruciating.
At every event I would move the chairs in the audience and set up the lectern and tape down the power cords. However, there was something that I did EVERY SINGLE TIME that I truly believe started me on this path of being a successful speaker.
Before the audience would come in, I would stand behind the lectern, gaze out into the empty seats, and imagine that one day an audience would show up for me. In my mind’s eye, I would see people laughing and hear their applause and feel their energy. And each time I stood behind a lectern, I repeated a mantra that said, “Today I move the chairs; tomorrow I move the audience.”
The only problem I had was figuring out how I could turn tomorrow into today. Years later, one question made all of the difference for my career.
A Life-Changing Question
Ask yourself this question:
“Is it worth making one small investment to have a hugely profitable and successful speaking career for the rest of my life?”
When I answered that question for myself, I immediately invested $4,000 for a day of speech coaching and that was the turning point for my entire career.
Turning Tomorrow Into Today
I can still remember THE day when I finished a speaking engagement, shook hands with dozens and dozens of influential CEOs that were in my audience, and then hopped into the limo that took me back to the airport.
As we rode I started thinking, “Wow! This is a long way from those days standing behind the lecterns telling myself that one day I’d move the audience.” That day I was SURE they were moved.
When your skills grow, your audiences grow!
What made the difference for me between the old scarce days and the new prosperous days?
The answer is simple. Tools! Although it took years, I uncovered the tools that helped me build the speeches that continue to build my career.
Instead of a decade of trial and error, you can get these same tools instantly.
Just think, you can make this YOUR YEAR to be the speaker you’ve always wanted to be with the opportunities you’ve always wanted to have!
Craig, the emails coming into my box are flooded with gratitude from others thanking me for giving them the greatest moment of their life in being able to witness your training session.”
