I'm Worried About Getting My Next Booking!

When I first started speaking, my biggest challenge was the creating the speech. I knew I had something to say, but didn’t know how to coax it out of me.

I remember my days trying to write my first keynotes, spending countless hours staring at a blank screen… ugggg! I was looking for a magic formulathree steps and done.

When I finally did get my program down on paper, I began to encounter another problem... inconsistently  getting booked. Either I found myself doing a lot of events for a fee less than I was targeting (and many times for no fee at all) or doing engagements that didn't get me any traction. I know what it feels like to be stuck.

But, I was determined to become unstuck! Over the years I read all the top books, studied all the experts, researched how to find organizations that were hiring speakers, and I refined and improved my presentations. I practiced, tried out new content, took note of what worked, and what didn't. And, I noticed I was getting traction!

Each year was better than the last, and I was getting booked more frequently – and the quality of the engagements were dramatically improving too!

Now, I want to share everything I have learned on my speaking journey with you!

Clarify Your Message

Clarity is King... and you will Lose when you Confuse! To get consistently booked as a speaker, meeting planners must know exactly how your message will resonate with their audience. In this course, we focus on getting your messaging right and tight!

Become a Master Storyteller

Storytelling is one of the most effective ways to communicate – it activates the brain of the person
talking and the person listening. The Storytelling
module in this course will help you connect your stories with your audience and make your performance memorable.

Grow Your Referrals

When you are great on stage, and you deliver a message that inspires change, people talk! And they
talk about YOU! The very best way to get booked is by having others spread the word about you and your presentations. Remember, you never know who is sitting in your audience ready to brag on YOU and your keynote.

Increase Your Booking Fee

Higher speaking fees come to those who who show up and deliver a great keynote with a strong message. Take all you learn in this course, work on your content, stories and humor, continually practice, practice, and practice... and as you get better your fee will increase as well!

Here’s what people are saying about the course...

Gregg Gregory

PROFESSIONAL SPEAKER

Karen took the topic of writing your keynote, which can be daunting and overwhelming, and gave us a system that is simplistic and easy to follow.  In my 20 plus years in National Speaker’s Association, I have not seen a process this logical!

Crystal Washington

My speaker mentor created an online course! I credit Karen McCullough with launching my professional speaking career. If you want to give better talks, go to this and immediately do everything she says because she’s a doggone genius!

Nancy Hopper

SALES SPEAKER | AUSTIN, TX

After taking Karen’s Killer Keynote, I have written my opening and closing story and delivered my NEW keynote twice –  It was a huge hit! From one keynote I have already booked a sales training! I will take all of her courses and continue to be coached by Karen!

Packed with Amazing Content...

This course is jam-packed with awesome stuff! Check out a high-level breakdown of all the modules included in this online course.

1

Module 1: What is a Keynote

We start off with the basics, before moving into the heavy lifting. This module will give you a clear understanding of what a keynote presentation really is... and what is is not. We will breakdown the various types of paid speaking engagements, define the core elements of a keynote presentation, and get an understanding of where you need to begin.

2

Module 2: Your Topic

In this section we will be identifying and defining the topic (or topics) that you will be speaking about. In addition to exploring the tools necessary to select a topic that you are knowledgable and passionate about, we will also ensure that it is a topic that relates to today's audiences and will result in getting you booked.

3

Module 3: The Audience

This module highlights how important it is for a speaker to understand their audience's needs and wants. In order to be successful as a speaker today, you must know your audience.

4

Module 4: Your Message

In this module we dive into your message. The message is the foundation and underlying theme of any keynote presentation. It is unique to the presenter because it weaves in their individual experience, perspective, and core beliefs.

5

Module 5: The Keynote Opener

The technique that has helped me the most in my keynoting is customizing the first 3 to 5 minutes of every speech. This shows that you’ve your homework and have made an effort to craft a speech that is a valuable and special experience. In this module we will go over how you can customize the opener and connect with the audience.

6

Module 6: The Keynote Content

The content is the meat of your presentation—the teaching piece where learning occurs. One of the first things I ask my clients is to make a list of the take-aways the audience will receive from your presentation. Starting with the end in mind is a great way to get ideas out of your head and onto paper.

7

Module 7: The Keynote Closing

The closing is the piece where the speaker sends the audience off, hoping they inspired them to go out and do something. What they hear and how they feel at the end of your program is what they will walk out and remember. One important thing to remember is that we must end on a high note.

8

Module 8: Using Stories

Today, if you haven’t noticed storytelling is the bomb! Every company, politician, and marketer are telling their story. Even so, many speakers struggle to know how best to take advantage of storytelling during their presentation.

9

Module 9: Using Humor

Over the years, many have shared with me that they are not naturally funny and that putting humor in their presentations is challenging. I truly believe that we can all be a little funny, at least some of the time. Some of us are naturally funny- we see and think funny while other have to work at it. In this session we will take a look at comedy techniques to add a little humor to your presentation.

Thank you for breathing the life and humor into our Generations event at Prudential. We couldn’t have pulled it off with you. People are LOVING the conversation around the event theme. Thank you for doing what you do!

Craig Tew

DIRECTOR OF EVENTS |

EDUCATION NATIONAL NOTARY ASSOCIATION

Karen WOWED our audience and provided a buzz that carried on throughout our 3-day event. A VP in our organization, with 25 years of experience here, labeled her ‘easily one of the top 3 keynote speakers we have ever had‘. Well done, Karen! I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Angie Aherns

Karen’s energy and enthusiasm is amazing! She always incorporates the audience from a personal stand point, doing much research even before arriving on site to give them the best experience possible. We always love having her at our events, and our attendees do too!

Stop Wasting Time and Money on Programs that Don't Work!

There are lots of people out there selling the “speaker dream” asking you to invest your time and money in their products and services. Don't get me wrong, some of these are really great programs, but the problem is many focus solely on speaker marketing, while overlooking product development... you know, the speech.


When I noticed this gap several years ago, I put together an off-the-cuff speaker workshop focused on giving newer speakers the tools and guidance they needed to craft great presentations that would get them booked. The program was a hit, and as demand for my in-person workshop grew I knew I had to turn it into an online course.


Today the average speaker coaching session costs between $200 - $250 an hour. That said, you could easily spend over $1,500 working with a coach to craft a single presentation – and that is assuming the coaching is a success.


In creating the content for this new course, I reflected back on the mistakes I made when starting out as a speaker. Rabbit holes I chased and mistakes I made that ended up costing me time and wasting my money. Not to mention the opportunities that were missed by not having a clear focus.


I learned from these mistakes and in the end I have enjoyed a very successful speaking career. Now I want to share my knowledge with you so that you don't have to make the same mistakes I did!


With my new course you get a repeatable framework and unlimited access to lessons that you can watch as many times as you need to get the job done. And best of all... if you join now, you will receive all the content updates and additional bonus lessons that I plan to continue to pack into this course in the coming months... all at no additional cost.

Linda Stacy

PROFESSIONAL SPEAKER |

BOSTON, Massachusetts

Karen’s Killer Keynote was amazing! Before the class I was hesitant about how, exactly, to open my keynote … a story…? A statistic…? I was also insecure about how to use various components of my content. Karen quickly helped me identify my overall messaging, and how content pieces fit within. Extra amazing that the same principles are easily transferable to our marketing content!

James Brown

PROFESSIONAL SPEAKER |

HOUSTON, TEXAS

Karen’s Killer Keynote was absolutely AMAZING. Her structure, transparency and candidness provide immediate take aways and action items to be used both now and down the road. If you are a speaker or desire to be a speaker, I highly recommend Karen’s Killer Keynote. It is resources very well spent.

Jeri Mae Rowley

FORMER PRESIDENT NSA

Funny, edgy, and so generous with her expertise. Karen shared the lessons she's learned about crafting, delivering and selling "Killer Keynotes." She took us through her process step by step during her interactive, lively presentation. Then, she provided a generous bundle of online resources for us to use. Wow!
