When one of my best friends asked me if I would enter a speaking competition with her, I confidently responded with “never”. The thought of it terrified me. The idea stayed with me though and one day I went to the Speaker Slam YouTube page and proceeded to watch their speeches for hours. I was in awe of the capacity people had to share their stories with such grace and humour. I was in awe of their confidence and I began to feel more and more drawn to the idea. I thought, in order to be a speaker, I’d first need confidence. I was wrong. I simply needed the courage to try. I placed first in my first competition and it ignited this drive within me to learn more. I wanted to become masterful at story telling and to develop myself as a speaker and, after feeling the warmth and inspiration of the Speaker Slam community and the authenticity of Rina and Dan, I signed up for their Emerging Speakers program. I can confidently say it is the most impactful, valuable and enjoyable program I have ever been a part of. If you desire to get on stage one day, if you have a story inside of you that you need to share with the world, if you want to put yourself out there in new ways - this is absolutely where you’ll want to be. Don’t worry if you’re not feeling confident yet, just take one courageous leap and the rest will come together. It will be the best decision and life will never be the same!

I was introduced to Rina and Dan of Speaker Slam through a coach almost two years ago. Their vibe and that of their community was one of love, support and inclusion. I couldn't help but love their approach and the atmosphere they created. I competed on their stage shortly thereafter. And then two more times after that. I was drawn into wanting to be part of whatever they were doing! I attended Rina's 3 day speaking retreats, and signed up for Viral Sensations. When Rina talked to me about Emerging Speakers, I knew it was for me. Rina and Dan are so knowledgeable and yet so down to earth and have such a heart-centred way working with people. Dan is so funny, and is the master of production. Rina has a way of pulling out your story and helping you craft it in such a powerful way. I knew I wanted to improve my writing and speaking, but I actually didn't realize that in Emerging Speakers, we were going to be working on messaging for our brand - where we have our expertise and passion. Speaking is the voice of our brand, and being able to do it powerfully is invaluable.

Thank you so much Rina and Dan!

If you are a coach, speaker, teacher, or aspiring to be any of these things, or you simply have a story inside of you that you feel needs to be shared, Emerging Speakers is the program for you!  This experience, this mastermind is unlike any I have experienced before.  Rina and Dan have created a very special and supportive community.  You will be cheered on, you will be inspired and you will learn and grow in the most loving environment.  This experience had taught me how to tap into my vulnerability in a way that I just couldn’t access before and that has helped me leaps and bounds as a coach and as a human.  You have everything to gain from joining this amazing community.
