The International Speaking Challenge

Become a Certified International Speaker by performing a world-class speaking engagement at our UK conference.


Course Introduction

The International Speaker Challenge is designed to fast track your professional career by helping you develop world class speaking skills and providing your first international speaking opportunity.

Branding is a huge part of building a successful speaking, coaching or training business. While most brand themselves at a local or regional level, only a few people invest the time in becoming “international” in their trade.

Having an international brand and being known for speaking across the world will do incredible things for you. Whether you are looking to become a full time speaker, deliver a TED Talk or build a business, this programme will help separate you from the rest of the crowd.

Who is this for

The programme is currently only available to non-UK residents. We encourage students to apply from Europe, Africa and Asia who are passionate about speaking.

This is ideally suited to:

  • Speakers, coaches, trainers, authors and educators, who are looking for a way to reach more people by speaking at large events.
  • Managers and senior executives looking to become industry champions.
  • Ambitious entrepreneurs who are looking to reach the next level in their branding.
  • Individuals who want to master the art of public speaking.
