Desire to become a professional speaker? 

Passionate about speaking and want to learn how to find consistent, PAID speaking engagements?

Want to become a TEDx speaker or write a book?

Watch this short video for an overview of Kevin's speaker coaching programs and his coaching philosophy.  

Friends, I would not be where I am today as a speaker without the coach I hired to guide me, support me, hold me accountable and answer questions weekly.


I struggled for years doing it all on my own before finally realizing I could benefit having guidance from someone who had already paved the way before me.


Coaching helped me get out of my own way, be more accountable, be more focused and earn thousands more in the first year alone.  Coaching immediately paid for itself and one year later I had a 6-figure speaking business.

I do not have the time to coach everyone that applies to work with me.  If you are coachable, have grit, and are passionate about speaking to inspire audiences, then your first step is to schedule a Strategy Session with me.  Click here to schedule.

I have numerous coaching programs in 1:1, group and online formats.

I also customize coaching to work with your budget. 


One-on-one coaching allows for personal review of your work, feedback of your speaking materials, specific guidance for your paid target industries, suggestions on your speaking business, and much, much more! I provide 3-hour coaching bundles as well as a full comprehensive coaching program with numerous additional incentives.  

Quarterly, I host a group coaching program that guides you through the proven PAID to SPEAK model. You'll start and stop alongside other aspiring speakers in a cohort group coaching frame. You'll benefit from having peer support and accountability and learn from others. Inquire with me when the next cohort starts!

Held once a year, the PAID to SPEAK Academy is a one(1)-day seminar event leading you through the entire process for developing a successful speaking business. You'll get exposure to not just the fundamentals of developing a speaking business in one day, but you'll learn secrets and tips in a face-to-face format with others. 

Desire to speak on the TED or TEDx stage? My TEDx video catapulted my speaking business. I've been a speaker for TEDx, served as a Speaker Coach for many other TEDx events, and even been head organizer for TEDxRaleigh. In my TEDx coaching, I'll guide you not only to get the opportunity, but also prepare you to crush it!

PAID to SPEAK is available On Demand as well as various other training workshops. My online courses are self-paced program leading you through the PAID to SPEAK modules. Watch the video tutorials when, where, and how often you want. Alongside videos, you'll have tip sheets and downloadable documents guiding you like a personal coach. This online course is ideal for those on a limited budget starting off.
