Are you a speaker who is looking for a supportive community?
Every speaker is on their own speaking journey and we are committed to meeting them where they are at. We provide foundational training on what it takes to be an Inspirational Speaker and Storyteller as well as invaluable tools such as personal brand building, speaker marketing, and paid speaking insights.
Our speakers come for the curriculum but stay for the community. They gain confidence, make meaningful connections and thrive in a supportive, heart-centered environment. We love watching our students blossom as they excel in our competitions, earn their inspirational speaker designations, create community projects and experience breakthroughs in their lives.
If you are passionate about speaking and want to live your purpose, join our community of Speakers who are on the same path.

"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!"
