Do you have the right systems in place for growth? 

Why isn't my calendar filled? How come I am struggling to get paid full fee? How do I keep my sales funnel full?  

Have you ever asked yourself those questions?

I get asked quite a bit and we both know it's likely not a problem with your speech, it often comes down to not having the right systems in place. 

The goal is to eliminate the struggle. To help you transition from "doing well" to "superstar". To remove stumbling blocks and offer you a formula that will have you moving through your business with less stress and more fun!

Jane Atkinson has been helping speakers catapult their businesses for nearly 30 years. First as an agent, she represented some of speaking's superstars, moving them quickly to high demand at higher fees.  

Later, Jane went on to work the exclusives division of a Texas speakers bureau representing athletes, celebrities and best-selling authors. Jane’s time at the bureau allowed her a birds eye view of how to gain (or lose) the attention of decision makers.  

Over the last decade as a business consultant and coach, Jane has designed systems and strategies for speakers that are proven to work. Her books, The Wealthy Speaker 2.0 , The Epic Keynote and The Wealthy Speaker Daily Success Planner & Journal are known as “the bibles” of the speaking industry and follow concrete steps to acceleration.  


For nearly 30 years Jane has been studying best practices and putting formulas and tools in place for her clients. She's taken speakers from 0 to 80 engagements and from 0 to $1M. Her reputation is solid, her style is authentic. She will not be touting any "get rich quick schemes". Ths is not a "side hustle" for Jane - this is her full time gig. All day, every day, she's thinking about how to help you grow, so that you and your family can live the life that you've dreamed of. That's the Wealthy Speaker Difference!
