What our speakers say about us

I was an established speaker and had a couple of keynotes, but had taken my focus off speaking. Speaking is something I enjoyed and I wanted to do more of it and Rising Stars has given me an opportunity to regain my focus, from the roots up. I like that this is a programme with an easy to follow structure. I can dip into when I have a few minutes and want to learn about an area I want to improve upon. It’s also served as a great reminder of all the assets I already have in place and shown me how I can use them better.

Nicky Marshall

When I joined Rising Stars, I knew I wanted to take my speaking to a professional level and I thought I needed an agent who could help me facilitate bookings. On joining, and simply navigating the member space, I quickly realised that there were many aspects of the speaking business I hadn’t considered that were not even in my plans! I scheduled an Accelerator Call with Neil and in 30 minutes he came up with a very catchy keynote, and effectively mapped out a structure for a 30-minute talk with me and he alerted me to 3 speaking opportunities I could apply for today! Above all, he candidly mapped out what I would need to do if I intend to go far in the speaking arena. I look forward to more of what Rising Stars can bring and hope to take advantage of every resource and opportunity provided.
