You want to be clear, confident and full of conviction – to be  unforgettable when you speak from the best stages in your industry. I will show you how to do that.

You belong on those powerful stages. It’s time.

No matter how many books you read, TED Talks you watch, or workshops you attend –

you still find yourself delivering talks that are  less awesome than you know you are capable of.

But let’s be clear: you are a good speaker –
people often tell you you’re a really good speaker.

Yet, it always feels like there’s something missing when you walk off that stage.

There’s a lingering feeling that you are capable of so much more as a speaker – that being “really good” isn’t even close to what you are capable of. 

It's time to honor that feeling.
It’s time for you to become  The Speaker You’re Meant To Be.

Want the program details right away?

Here's  the thing:

Becoming a captivating, sought-after  speaker isn’t just about being an expert, having a message that matters or being dynamic on the stage (both IRL and virtual stages).

You already know you’re an expert and that your message matters – that it can and will change lives when the right people hear it.

…What eludes you is how to craft the kind of talk that makes their jaws drop, that makes you the ONLY choice of expert in your industry.

You know that being this kind of speaker makes getting great speaking gigs simple – so much so that you would have event organizers seeking you out for their stages (instead of you chasing after them).

And if you’re honest, you’re tired of feeling like you’ve “mailed it in” yet again on a talk because you know you can fall back on “good enough” speaking.

You’ve crafted enough workshops, talks and speeches to know there’s a way to “get it done” and then there’s “next level” – you are ready for the next level.
You know the feeling of having someone tell you that your talk was powerful, even life-changing for them and you want more of that, reliably.
You love that you’ve been able to share your expertise in service of others. Now you want to be strategic about your speaking – so you reach your goals while serving the audience too .
When you are deeply honest, you just know that you are meant to deliver as a speaker at a whole new level. It’s a call-in your heart that keeps growing.
Not knowing how to get from “Very good speaker” to jaw-dropping speaker is unbearably frustrating.

The worst part is: this problem is not just preventing you from getting on the best stages (like TEDx and amazing keynotes at your favorite industry conferences) – it’s also preventing you from growing your platform and your business in the way you have always dreamed.

The truth?
This is not just a dream for you –
it is a calling.

You were meant to change lives with your message – and to do it regularly, with confidence and powerful grace – and to blow their minds as you deliver. 

And every day you spend wondering how to make it happen or what you might be doing wrong just increases your doubt and uncertainty – and amplifies the fear that you’ll never figure it out.

I totally understand.
I've  been there.

Most importantly, so have many of my clients.

I’ve tried to quit my work in the world more times than I care to count.  It just felt easier to  let it all go and let other parts of my life fulfill my need to serve.

Every single time, within a few days –  I found myself dreaming about that impact I knew I was meant to make.

It’s like it would sneak up on me, when I wasn’t paying attention, and take over my psyche again.

And I’d be back at it again – trying to figure out how to serve in a big way with this message that wouldn’t let me go.

The thing is, I see this same thing happening with my clients all the time. But I know where it comes from now. They don’t know how to realize their full potential as a speaker and thought leader. They keep trying, but it feels like such a mystery and they want to give up.

But trust me – it doesn’t work that way. When you’re called, you’re called. 

The only thing left to do is get the support you deserve to finally step into the speaker you’re meant to be. That’s how it went for me – and that’s how I love watching it happen for my clients over and over again when we get to work together.

I’m happy to say that I enjoy a thriving business as well as deep satisfaction sharing my expertise and stories as a speaker and thought leader. More importantly, my clients are consistently experiencing these wonderful results in their speaking and thought leadership.

And I want the same for you.

MICHELLE HELPED ME REALIZE
THAT WHAT I HAVE TO SAY IS SO MUCH BIGGER!

The first conversation we had made me realize that what I really have to say is so much bigger. She really helped me get to the heart of my message—what the real big message was. It was the best day ever. When I went up to do that talk, I had all the confidence in the world. I knew it like the back of my hand. It also helped me shape the outline of my book. Some of the best work that I did, definitely, in 2019 was with Michelle.

Rachel Rodgers
CEO, Hello Seven

Imagine what it would be like to finally step into the  vision of the speaker and thought leader you  know you're meant to be.

>> What would it be like to step onto every stage knowing you’ve created a talk that will blow them away – and serve them at the highest level?
>> What would it be like to share your story with confidence and ease, knowing it will inspire and move your audience to action ?
>> How would your life and business be different if you felt deeply confident that the message you have crafted and the way you will share it is going to light up your audience in ways they can’t yet imagine?
>> What would it be worth to you to know that every time you have an opportunity to speak you know exactly how to craft the most awesome talk for that audience – and deliver it with power and grace?
>> Imagine the feeling when instead of wondering how to make the biggest impact as a speaker, you are delightedly choosing between too many great options?
>> How would it feel to know that you are finally realizing your vision as the speaker and thought leader you know you are meant to be?

HIRE MICHELLE FOR ANY MAJOR TALK THAT YOU NEED TO GIVE.

I killed it on that stage because Michelle helped me frame my rooftop message. She helped me deliver a talk that made sense, and that rallied an audience to buy into the idea that if we want to solve major world problems, we have to help girls and women stop dieting. None of that would have happened without her loving, but firm guidance. Hire Michelle for any major talk that you need to give.

WHAT IS INCLUDED INSIDE THE PROGRAM:

Your step-by-step blueprint in a LIVE version of this beloved course!

This is a brand new version of a LIVE course! I’ll take you step-by-step through the process of crafting your talk during live classes. You will NOT need to rally yourself up to watch a bunch of videos to learn how to craft your talk. (And of course, everything will be recorded, too, so you CAN watch via video if you choose.)

“I dug in deep. Truly taking the time to focus on my desires, needs, and story was incredibly peaceful.”

– Maddie Callander

Q & A working sessions – to make sure you have plenty of time to get your talk DONE.

Outside of our content classes where you’ll learn and build your talk, we’ll meet for two additional sessions dedicated to answering any questions you have, working through areas where you need help and sharing feedback.

(You are NOT left to do this program on your own!)

Ongoing community support

Our private Facebook group dedicated just to this LIVE course is here for you to ask questions, request feedback and cheer on your course colleagues.

Michelle or one of our team members will be in the group every weekday at least twice to ensure you get the support you need, fast.

“I learned a formula to put together a signature talk that is engaging, useful, and gets clients. I can modify my talk or create a whole new one to meet the needs of the group I'm speaking to.”

– Anna Romero

“It’s a great time to ask questions, to review material, and listen to what others were up to. Michelle is ever ready with answers, suggestions, information, and support.”

– Denise Lampron

VIP, 1-to-1 support

You get one 1:1 45-minute coaching call with me — to be used anytime you want during the program.

Bring your hesitations; your questions; your stumbling  blocks…we’ll get you through ‘em all.

BONUS: Speaker Page & Bio Class!

We will meet live for a bonus workshop on crafting your Speaker Bio and creating a Speaker Page that is irresistible to event organizers!

“I was so happy to practice my talk with other members because everyone gave different feedback which helped me understand my talk from different perspectives.”

– Anna Romero

“Michelle had an ability to take my mess and make art out of it. She was very intuitive and helped me shape and formulate my message.”

– Gayle Canton

UNBELIEVABLE EXPERTISE…

Michelle is one of the best coaches I’ve ever worked with in any field. You’re going to get unbelievable expertise, somebody who is incredibly thoughtful and smart, and is going to care deeply about teaching you how to be a great speaker.

Melanie Vetter

In this 8-week program,
you'll  learn how to:

>> Craft your own Rooftop Message Talk, designed to help you reach your specific goals – whether they’re about attracting clients, taking a stand for a cause you care about or killing it on a TEDx stage.
>> Deliver your talk with what I call “Surrendered Speaking” – a way of showing up on stage that is so full of presence and connection that your audience can’t help but be blown away
>> Weave stories and examples in your talk that light up your audience and move them to action
>> Create a call to action that fills you with confidence in reaching your goal. Whether it’s growing your email list, attracting new clients or inviting donors to give money to your case – there will be no doubt how to take action on your inspiring message.
>> See speaking anxiety in a whole new light so that you can enjoy greater freedom in using your voice than ever before. (This goes way beyond speaking on a stage – it applies to using your voice anywhere, anytime!)
>> Amplify your impact in the world when you speak, write and share your message through any kind of thought leadership.

>> Finally, know what it feels like to step fully into the speaker you are meant to be – and experience incredible satisfaction of this kind of speaking and thought leadership, as well as the business growth and impact it naturally brings!

UNBELIEVABLE EXPERTISE…

Program  Curriculum

IN THE NEXT 8 WEEKS, I WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW TO BECOME THE SPEAKER YOU’RE MEANT TO BE.

While you will have access to the recordings for as long as this program exists inside my business (which will be a very, very long time), this unique opportunity allows you to go through a LIVE version of this training – and this may be the only time we run this course LIVE – and certainly at this price (so this is the BEST time to join us!)

(You’re getting access to the upgraded program with my latest + greatest strategies before anyone else will ever see it – hooray!)

>> Week 1: Your Speaking GOALS – and what’s getting in your way!

You’ll learn how to get crystal clear on the outcomes you are looking for as a speaker and thought leader — so you can reach those goals – and then some! – without riding a crazy roller coaster along the way.

>> Week 2: The Message at the Heart of Your Work + Audience Intimacy

You’ll learn how to get crystal clear on the message you came to share and share it in a way that lights up your best people  and magnetizes clients, collaborators and partnership  opportunities organically!

>> Week 3: Creating the BEST Content for your talk

This is where your talk starts to come to life! We’ll establish your core message and reveal your key messages. You’ll learn how to creatively access different ways to present your stories + expertise –   so you have a full treasure chest to pull the very best gems to share with your audience.

You’ll also learn about the Magic Mix of Content in this lesson – and it will serve you forever, in writing blogs, doing live streams and even for sharing on sales calls!

>> Week 4: Outlining your talk for the best engagement

You’ll learn how to structure your content to make the biggest impact within the first 60 seconds –  so that they KNOW they should pay attention the entire time. We’re talking Captivating Intro, power transitions for ease and flow and creating a call to action that helps you reach those goals you set – AND serves your audience, too!

>> Week 5:  Implementation Week
get exactly the support you need to keep moving forward on this awesome talk you are crafting!
>> Week 6: Turn your outline into a full talk – and start practicing!

You’ll learn how to take that awesome content you’ve distilled and organize it in a way that naturally leads your audience to the outcome they most want – and that aligns with your goals, too! No more long tangents and feeling like you “got off track” while you were speaking.

You’ll learn how to practice and prepare for your talk efficiently and effectively.

You want this talk to “live in you” for the most easeful flow. You won’t have to reach into the depths of your memory to try to find that line from your script. You’ll feel present and excited to share what you know will light up their lives!

>> Week 7: Deliver with power and grace aka Surrendered Speaking!

You’ll learn how to show up to your speaking event (live or virtual) with confidence and presence, fully ready to deliver a talk as the speaker you are meant to be. The kind of presence I’m talking about here is never talked about in the speaking world – and it will change everything for you and your service as a speaker.

>> Week 8: Implementation Week Q & A
dedicated to supporting you in whatever way you need most as we round out this course.
>> BONUS Workshop: How to write your Speaker Bio and create your Speaker Page!  

In this action-focused workshop session, I’ll guide you through crafting your speaker bio in a way that is irresistible to event organizers in your industry and then creating a Speaker Page that makes them excited to have you speak for their audience.

>> BONUS: Book the Best Speaking Gigs – online course

The most common question I am asked as a speaking coach is: How do I get great speaking gigs?  I created this course to not only answer that question — but give you the swipe copy and step-by-step process for easily booking  speaking gigs (without feeling like you’re pulling teeth)

It never occurred to me that I would feel so confident…

I knew Michelle would deliver on her promise that we would have a talk, and I wanted that. But I didn't expect to feel so confident standing in front of women delivering that talk.

Denise Lampron

HERE’S WHAT’S PROBABLY GOING ON FOR YOU RIGHT NOW…
  • You’re tired of feeling like you have so much more potential as a speaker than you’ve ever realized
  • You know that your biggest impact in the world is waiting for you on the other side of *really* going for it with your speaking vision – you just don’t know how to get there
  • You are juggling so many things in your successful business. Being the jaw-dropping speaker you imagine just keeps falling below other “priorities” – and you don’t want that to happen anymore.
  • You don’t want to have to figure this out on your own anymore – period. You are ready to stop spinning and see what you’re really made of when it comes to speaking.
WHAT YOU'LL FEEL LIKE
AFTER FINISHING…
  • You will know exactly how to craft and deliver a talk (virtual or in-person) that you are deeply proud of.
  • You’ll be crystal clear on your Vision for your speaking and thought leadership – and have a plan to create the biggest impact possible (finally!)
  • Being able to trust the support of a deep expert in public speaking, who has coached celebrities, world-renowned thought leaders and many TEDx speakers (that’s me!) helps you restructure your priorities —  after all, this isn’t just an item on your to-do list, it’s your calling.
  • You will feel confident in your training, supported in your implementation and excited to get out there and grace allll the stages with your message and inspiration!

WHAT WOULD I TELL SOMEONE
CONSIDERING MICHELLE'S PROGRAM?

Do it! You'll get a talk out of it, but you'll get so much more. You'll get a deep understanding of your own business and your own gifts as a business owner.

I stepped up to the plate for speaking events – I leaned in; said yes, even when I questioned whether or not I was deserving. Now, I've spoken in some fashion every week for the last six. It's been a crazy streak of opportunities!

Maddie Callander

One might think that with years of public speaking under my belt, a coach wouldn’t make much impact – but boy did she. Michelle helped me sharpen my talk’s focus, structure the flow of the story, and smooth out the rough parts. If you have an important message and you want it to be impactful and heard, you need Michelle.

Ron Fritz

I got to see what other people were doing and being critiqued on, giving me ideas for my own presentations. I also made friends, people that I’m still connected to today – really smart, awesome women doing cool things.

Melissa Hereford

ATTENTION:
This is an  inclusively-exclusive, program.

While I want this program to benefit as many founders and thought leaders as possible around the world – it’s my duty to provide an amazing experience for my clients first.

If you fit the bill below –
I’d love to have you inside the program.

THIS PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF…

  • You’re ready to finally step fully into the powerful speaker and thought leader you are meant to be.
  • You have spoken on some stages but maybe not at the level you imagine – as far as size of audience, prestige of the conference or relevance to your topic area is concerned.
  • You’re wanting to learn how to release everything that’s in the way of you truly serving as a recognized leader in your industry.
  • You are only willing to speak with high integrity and care for your audience (we don’t do manipulation or scarcity tactics here.)
  • You are no longer interested in half-assing your content or your delivery as a speaker.
  • You’re willing to take 100% responsibility for your outcomes in this journey – and you’re willing to show up and do the work!

THIS PROGRAM IS NOT RIGHT FOR YOU IF…

  • You don’t have 2-3 hours per week to invest in yourself with this program.
  • You’re not willing to be honest about where you are now, what you’re really wanting when it comes to your thought leadership speaking and are not ready to get some seriously high-level coaching.
  • You’re not interested in taking a stand for your message and the people you are meant to serve.
  • You are looking for “invisible close” and other false urgency, manipulative scarcity tactics for selling from the stage (I only teach thought leadership speaking – the single best way to attract high-end clients who are ready to do what it takes to implement what you share with them)
  • You don’t want to take responsibility for your results.
  • You’re looking for a single magic fix without any work. Great speaking and leadership is an investment of time and energy. It pays off in big, beautiful ways, though.

UNBELIEVABLE EXPERTISE…

Michelle is one of the best coaches I’ve ever worked with in any field. You’re going to get unbelievable expertise, somebody who is incredibly thoughtful and smart, and is going to care deeply about teaching you how to be a great speaker.

 Frequently Asked Questions:

A few A’s to the Q’s you might have about making it all happen:

How much time is required to get outcomes?
I can teach you the process that has led to incredible outcomes for my clients and for myself over the years – and I will do that. It is your willingness to implement what  you learn, experiment and try things out and refine as you go – that will create the most powerful outcomes for you. This time and energy investment is different for everyone, but I would estimate about 2-3 hours per week (some will choose to spend more time), including our group calls.
How fast can I expect to see results?
One of my favorite parts of this work is that big change can show up in an instant. Seeing something new about your message, your ideal audience member, or how the transformation you help them create really works can be life and business changing immediately! So the answer is: FAST!

And… it will take you showing up fully, asking the deep questions, being willing to see something new and unexpected in order to give yourself the best chance for powerful insights. (I’m so excited abou this for you!)

I don’t use facebook. Will this still work for me?
Most of our program members find a way to use Facebook that works for them, just so they can enjoy the benefits of connection with other members between our zoom meetings (for example, they create a profile just for this program then delete it.)

That said, if you really don’t want to be on Facebook, it’s totally fine because we meet every week via zoom video and all other course material is in our online Membership Site or via email. You will get lots of support and connection through those avenues!

I’ve worked with another speaking coach or went through a talk crafting program or course. Will this still work for me?
I’m sure you got some really good learning in other programs you’ve invested in. I’ll tell you a little secret: Great speaking isn’t rocket science. There are some fundamentals that will profoundly change your ability to impact an audience and most of us are teaching those in some form.

The difference you will find in this program is the focus on thought leadership speaking (for maximum credibility, greatest impact), sharing your founder’s story or story of transformation and Surrendered Speaking delivery. I’ve never seen these important areas covered in the way we cover them in any other program.

I’m already a member of TL Collective. How is this different?
TL Collective is an implementation support program (and a wonderful one at that!) The focus there is on supporting you in consistently sharing your voice and leadership every day as a thought leader. This program is a deep, focused dive on crafting your Rooftop Message Talk, practicing and getting feedback on delivery of that talk and then how to set yourself up as a leader in your industry through speaking. TL Collective is amazing ongoing support for this kind of work – they work together beautifully.
I’m already a paid speaker. Is this program still useful to me?
Congratulations! Getting paid to speak is high on the list for most people I work with. And of course, many of them do get paid very nicely to speak – just like you. So the question is: are you wishing for coaching and support around crafting a talk built around the heart of your work? Do you want expert coaching on your delivery, storytelling, slide strategy? If so, you are in the right place!

I’m here for all of that – even if you are already doing some great paid speaking right now. I’ve been a speaking coach for more than 12 years -I’d love to help you get to your next level!

Will you be running this program in the future?
I’m hoping this program becomes at least an annual offering for our business. Since this is the first time we are running it in this new shorter format, we will see how it resonates with our audience. We also don’t know  what pricing and level of support will be for future versions. This one is a very special ALL LIVE version.

But even if we do run it again, why would you want to wait until then? Your people are waiting for you right now. Get serving! 🙂

What kind of support can I get if I get stuck?
We have built in so much support! We have weekly zoom sessions plus our private Facebook group, where Michelle and her team show up every week day – not to mention the brilliant thought leaders going through this course alongside you. I’m known for hopping on Facebook Live in my groups to answer questions more fully AND some surprise website, outline and other hotseat videos to answer questions, too! You also get a full 45-minute 1:1 coaching session with me as part of this special session of this new program version!

As well, we have a bonus session for creating your speaker page and speaker bio. If you need help, just let us know! We’ll be happy to walk you through anything that’s getting you stuck.

Is there a community with this product?
YES! And it is one of the very best parts. There is just nothing like surrounding yourself with other people who are devoted to making a difference in a similar way that you are. Not to brag, but the people who are attracted to our programs are smart, fun, thoughtful, conscious, loving souls – and friendships and collaborations are often created that last years to come.
What’s the program schedule? Is everything available immediately?
Since this is a brand new version of this program, we will be creating the videos together while you are in this program. Of course, I’ll come to each session with a full lesson ready to teach and then coach around. You will ask questions and share insights during our time together. That video will be available for you to reference anytime – and become part of our regular program curriculum. (You do not have to show or identify yourself on video – you will still be able to ask your questions and get coached!)
Do I need to use a special program to access the materials?
Our program is delivered via zoom and Kajabi for recorded materials. You will download zoom video platform for free if you don’t have it already (we will tell you how to do that) and we will send you access information for Kajabi – no extra cost to you beyond your program fees.)
How long can I keep it for?
You will have access to course content via our platform for as long as we are using that platform. If by some chance we  have to remove the content from the course platform, we will make downloads available to you – so you can keep them on your computer or hard drive.
Can I invite my friend to join me in this program?
OF COURSE!! It’s so much more fun to step up your thought leadership speaking with a friend! Feel free to send them this sales page and we’d love to have them purchase a spot inside the program!
What if it’s not what I expect?
It might be even better than you expected (wouldn’t surprise me 🙂 )

In the very unlikely chance that the program is not meeting your needs, as long as you attend and fully engage in the first four weeks of the program, including working through the course work to give it the full chance of being useful to you – we will give you a full refund, no questions asked.

I honestly can’t imagine this happening – but it’s here if you need it.

About Your Course Instructor

Michelle Barry Franco is the speaker coach to founders, leaders, celebrities and well-known thought leaders across the world. From TEDx stages to the most exciting keynote addresses in any industry, she’s had the honor of helping hundreds of brilliant people turn their stories and expertise into talks that change lives and inspire positive action. Her greatest devotion is to helping you share your story and message with clarity and conviction – and have an amazing time doing it.

KEPT ME ACTIVE & ENGAGED

Being accountable to Michelle, the program, and the other women kept me active and engaged. I’m part of about 3 other online programs right now and I’m way behind because I didn’t have the level of accountability that this course has. I liked Michelle’s vulnerability – it was super important for us to see she understands what we are going through.
