Your First Paid Speech (An Online Course and Community)

Regular Price: $399

After years of being a professional speaker and hosting training conferences for people who want to become speakers, the #1 question I'm asked is:  

    •    How do I land my first paid speaking engagement?

People aren’t asking me how to book $5,000 or $10,000 engagements (at least, not yet). All they want to know is how to book their first $500 or $750 speech.

That's why I created a brand new video masterclass entitled: "YOUR FIRST PAID SPEECH: How to Land Your First $750 Speaking Engagement Without Having a Huge Platform or Being a Best-Selling Author.” 

Here's what you get in this Online Course and Community:

  • Video recordings of all 6 one-hour modules (see descriptions of each module below)
  • PDF handouts for each module
  • Audio recordings of each module, so you can listen on-the-go
  • Templates of forms and tools I use in my speaking business

  • Access to a Private Facebook Group for ongoing growth and learning

The best part... this online masterclass course and community is ONLY $399. 

Register now and I'll help you move from DREAM to DO as a speaker!

About the instructor

Kent Julian is a lot of things… family man, champion swim coach, CSP* professional speaker, fish taco lover, and proud bald guy. Yet, this hasn’t always been the case. Kent started out as an at-risk child with severe learning challenges and SAT scores so low that he had to take Development Studies just to get into college—on probation.  

From these humble beginnings, Kent went on to become the Executive Director of a national youth association in order to help teenagers just like him. Then, after 20 years in non-profit work, he did something crazy… he launched two successful businesses. 

Along the way, Kent realized that the successes he experienced were never “his successes.”  Whether working with millennial students, coaching championship swim teams, or leading businesses, the positive accomplishments and results cam about because of the team members he was privileged to lead and the mentors who invest in his life.  

Now, with expertise in leadership and employee engagement, Kent is privileged to speak, write, and consult leaders and teams all over the country on what it takes to create a high-performing, “DREAM-to-DO” culture.

* CSP stands for Certified Speaking Professional with the National Speakers Association (NSA). It is the highest designation a speaker can earn with the NSA. Less than 800 professional speakers worldwide have earned this award, which demonstrates just how rare it is in the speaking business.

What People are Saying

It works! I have been using the exact plan Kent taught me for booking paid speaking events. It’s definitely paying dividends. I have recently booked my first 3 paid speaking engagements using his methods. A big thank you Kent!  

— Tom Henricksen

I’m so excited. I have 4 PAID engagements coming up in the next 3 months all because I really know my message, I know who needs my message and I know how to find the people who book speakers for my message. THANK YOU Kent Julian!”   

— Jill Davis

“Kent… you have the gift of being able to encourage and sometimes give a gentle nudge in the direction of a successful speaking career. It’s so exciting to start booking speaking events. I have booked 6 paid speaking engagements so far! Yeah!!”

— Brenda Nevitt

"When I first went through Kent Julian's speaker course, I was just a girl with a dream clouded by fear and doubt. Kent provided me with a clear blueprint, action steps, and tangible goals to help me make my dream a reality. Less than 3 months later I was paid to speak. A few months later I booked my first $750 paid speaking engagement and have two more right behind it. Thank you, Kent!"
