Calling advanced speakers....

Are you ready to ratchet up your business to the next level? 

Gain access to the strategies and master keynoting skills to build the business of your dreams!

Do you have the right systems in place for growth? 

Why isn't my calendar filled? How come I am struggling to get paid full fee? How do I keep my sales funnel full?  

Have you ever asked yourself those questions?

I get asked quite a bit, and we both know it's likely not a problem with your speech, it often comes down to not having the right systems in place. 

The goal is to eliminate the struggle. To help you transition from "doing well" to "superstar". To remove stumbling blocks and offer you a formula that will have you moving through your business with less stress and more fun!

See you soon, Wealthy Speaker!

"Jane Atkinson's book and coaching services transformed my speaking business from a start-up to a full-time reality. She has given me the blueprint for continued business growth and I feel so lucky to be considered one of her clients. I can't wait to attend my third Accelerate weekend in March and encourage all who want to increase revenue and maximize impact to attend. Thank you Jane!" Jacob Green, Author, See Change Clearly 


Jane Atkinson has been helping speakers catapult their businesses for nearly 30 years. First, as an agent, she represented some of speaking's superstars, moving them quickly to high demand at higher fees.  

Later, Jane went on to work the exclusives division of a Texas speakers bureau representing athletes, celebrities and best-selling authors. Jane's time at the bureau allowed her a birds-eye view of how to gain (or lose) the attention of decision-makers.  

Over the last decade as a business consultant and coach, Jane has designed systems and strategies for speakers that are proven to work. Her books, The Wealthy Speaker 2.0, The Epic Keynote, and The Wealthy Speaker Daily Success Planner & Journal, are known as "the bibles" of the speaking industry and follow concrete steps to acceleration.  


For nearly 30 years, Jane has been studying best practices and putting formulas and tools in place for her clients. She's taken speakers from 0 to 80 engagements and from 0 to $1M. Her reputation is solid, her style is authentic. She will not be touting any "get rich quick schemes". This is not a "side hustle" for Jane - this is her full time gig. All day, every day, she's thinking about how to help you grow, so that you and your family can live the life that you've dreamed of. That's the Wealthy Speaker Difference!

The speaker who will benefit most from this event has a speaking business off the ground and is looking to get to that next level. Intermediate and seasoned speakers will benefit greatly as our content is higher level. Emerging speakers are better served by Wealthy Speaker School. Email monica@speakerlauncher.com if you would like more information.

Who is not the right fit?

People looking for the magic bullet or the easy path need not apply. The theme for this year at the Wealthy Speaker University is "hustle" because that's what it takes to catapult your business quickly. If you're prepared to take action, no matter what level you are at, please join us.

What should I plan to bring with me?  

Passion. Enthusiasm. An open mind ready to absorb all the information we'll be sending your way! In addition, you can bring whatever tool you like to take notes (laptops, iPads, good old fashioned pen and paper). We’ll provide many bonuses including a 90-Day action planning tool.

How should I dress?  

Dress for this event is business casual and layers (it's hot outside, but they will likely have the air conditioning turned on!). Meeting rooms often get cold, so be prepared.  

Should I book at the Hyatt Regency  

YES! You can book at any hotel, but staying on site will allow you to be truly present for this event. We have secured a great price for this high-end hotel, but there are a limited number of rooms, so don't wait to make your reservation. Last minute bookings may need to stay off site. 

Are you offering any early bird discounts?  

Yes! Our early bird price is good until January 17th! Save $200. 

Do you have pricing for Canadians?

Here at Speaker Launcher, we do our best to accomodate Canadian pricing whenever possible (our school, our coaching, our masterminds, all have a Canadian option). However, when running live events in the US, with all US costs associated with the event, we are not able to offer a Canadian pricing option.
