“Within 12 months my business doubled but the best part was my “Wealthy Speaker” moment when I stepped out of the Grand Marriott in Grand Cayman Island after a standing ovation keynote to a waiting limo taking me to the airport and my next gig. Thank you, Jane Atkinson!”
Paul Schemp
Professor, University of Georgia

Kindra-Hall“When I hired Jane, my business was just a few months old and I’ll admit, it was a big investment. However, within 6 months I raised my fee twice, hired help and now continuously pinch myself that my dream of becoming a speaker came true so quickly, much in part to Jane’s generous wisdom and guidance.”

Warren Macdonald, Speaker, Author


“Your strategic approach to coaching speakers has given me a new way to manage and develop my public speaking business.  I also love your bold, bodacious, and ambitious way of thinking on what speaker success should look like with no apologies.  I now have the blueprint to action and have learned what true and ‘big time’ professional speaker success looks like.”
Jim Golden

“As a result of Jane’s coaching, I have been able to book more speaking engagements, increase my speaking fee and build confidence knowing that I have the tools for success. I would recommend Jane to any speaker who is ready to be a wealthy speaker.”
Judy M. Zimmer

“I found value in observing you coach the other speakers in our group and liked your simple, pleasantly direct style of communication. You struck me as someone who has managed to blend coaching /consulting with a relaxed lifestyle. That, for me, is what a Wealthy Speaker is all about.”
Leon Quimpo

“I came to Jane confused as to how to package and promote my speaking career going forward. I left with absolute brand-clarity, a rapidly growing social media presence and a host of new exciting speaking opportunities in the pipeline. How’s that for a worthy investment?”

John Marshall Roberts, Worldview Thinking, Inc.

Jane challenged me to think bigger about what I could accomplish in my business. And when I thought bigger, she had me think even bigger than that. The result was that I developed a more robust plan of action and that made all the difference.

Jane helped me discover my core message–not an easy task considering the complexity of what I do–but more importantly, she didn’t push her agenda. Jane worked within the vision I had for myself and made it work for me. One of the absolute best coaches out there if you want to be a success in the speaking business. Whoops, now I’ve revealed my secret weapon.

I continually work with Jane every time I am ready to reinvent or up my game. The last time I worked with Jane we shifted my message to include leading change in a fast paced and technological workplace- since shifting my brand promise and increasing my fees I am enjoying the business at a higher level than ever before. I will continue to keep Jane in my ‘back pocket’.
Cheryl Cran

When I started working with Jane, just about everything about my business felt “muddled.” Jane helped me plod through the muck to gain clarity about my main focus and how to express it. Now I clearly know what I’m about . . . and so do prospective clients!
Nancy Noonan
President, The Mastery Institute

Working with Jane on my speaking business felt like I was training for the Olympics. Jane is quite literally a world class coach. Her ability to hone in on your areas of strength and weakness, provide concrete and highly actionable suggestions to propel your work to the next level and truly delightful personality make you feel like a gold medalist in the making. And the real proof – after working with Jane, I was getting more booking at my dream fee. Hiring Jane as my speaking coach was one of the smartest career moves I’ve made.

Jane helped me focus on speaking on technology, even though I fought with her to speak on three other subjects! This one piece of wise counsel changed my speaking career in ways that now force me to admit that she has a much higher IQ than me…

Jane helped me focus my message from a convoluted seven points to a simple three points. The result is it’s easier for my clients to understand, remember and make meaningful changes in their lives. Steve Weber
aka Forest Gump

When my wife, Darlene, and I first started working with Jane, I was very close to burning out. Within a relatively short period of time, we revamped our entire business, and I was working less at much higher fees. Everything has changed about the way we do business. And we’re loving it!
Alvin Law, CSP
Author of “Alvin’s Laws of Life”

As a newcomer to the speaking industry, I found myself overwhelmed with all of the options available for advancing my career. By working with Jane I was able to identify the right path to move my business to the next level. When I think of how to describe Jane, I think of the description I have heard about my favorite NFL coach, Bill Cower – she is
a “player’s coach” and she helped me understand what I needed to do and become successful!
Bob Furniss
Author of “Ideas at Work”

My business has exploded since working with Jane – my fees have gone up substantially, my marketing materials are so much better, I signed my first book deal, and I’ve doubled my revenue from last year.
Mike Robbins
Author of Focus on the Good Stuff

Jane is fantastic! As someone just entering the professional speaking business – I had 200 questions and only 20 answers! Jane has helped me focus my presentation, improve my website and guide me around mistakes that I’m sure I would have made without her expertise! I’ve accomplished more in my first six months than I thought possible and, most importantly, am now booking well-paying gigs! Thanks, Jane!
