Becoming World Class - Emerging Speaker Monthly Meetup
This is a new meetup series of live Monthly meetings - for those looking to up their game. Authors, Coaches, Consultants, Freelancers, Corporate Professionals, those with a story looking to become a professional speaker... this is the meetup for you! Each meetup in the series will be updated 1-2 weeks in advance with the meeting theme, the speakers, and the educational portion. We will have a speaking / content / technique educational as well as a business / marketing educational. We cannot promote you unless you speak and someone in the group can vouch for you. Yes - we will be getting you speaking opportunities to kick start your opportunities. We cannot help you create your video portfolio unless you speak and can be filmed. You fellow members cannot refer you unless you speak. Becoming world class requires practice and unique insight in helping you id your brand and your niche. These meetups are for practice (on live stage) - to work through and development your keynotes, portions of your speeches to make them stronger, and to build your story and your branding. Where will your speaking be taking you, and when? You will never know unless you start putting stakes in the ground and become part of a tightly knit speaking mastermind that offers practice, development, and set powerful goals that you are held accountable for. We help you implement, grow, and get paid. Period. You've tried the rest - now get the results you are looking for. We don't focus solely on technique - we're going for real, authentic, and audience knowledge and engagement - by mastering all platforms! (And special secret - some meetings will have special guests, as well as 'target audience' recruits who will give you unadulterated feedback before you 'go live'! We will also be inviting local organization planners to 'hear' our ready to launch emerging speakers and to gauge the caliber of our speakers.) Sign up for one of our speaking roles here:

What we're about

Public Group

For individuals looking to up their speaking game by learning and speaking professionally, for their business or for their career. This is no ordinary speaking group, and helps emerging speakers from all walks transition into a paid, professional arena, both online and off. We provide the platform(s) to develop and practice presentations, to hone the message, and to practice technique such as delivery and effectiveness. It's professional networking on steriods, because of all the opportunities presented.

We are the CA Emerging Speakers Bureau (formerly OC Speakers Bureau) / Emerging Speakers Bureau, creating Best in Class Professional Speakers nationally, and for those individuals looking to move past the status quo.

We are THE go-to Speakers Bureau for Emerging Speakers for Toastmaster Trained and other trained (or not trained) speakers. Our Speakers are put through a thorough evaluation process for Qualification (if they desire) and have the ability to be recommended (found) by local event organizers.

We support and develop speakers at all levels, encouraging authenticity and audience connection. (For technique specific tools and advice, it's recommended a speaker also join a local Toastmasters group for a bit). The speaking world is changing, and it's time for emerging speakers to up their game if they are looking to become a paid speaker, or earn some income from speaking.r

We develop our speakers on marketing, message honing, finding a platform, and fine-tuning their speeches, to actually perfecting their speeches and connecting with the audiences. Our goal is to help all speakers connect with their innate skills, abilities, interests and uniqueness to help them succeed in a competitive environment.

For all those motivated to move into more professional or public speaking, whether for career advancement, business building, or pure personal development - we help them all! We have people from all backgrounds and experience levels.

Come see us in action! Our meetings are the 2nd Wednesday of every month 7-9pm. For more information about our group and what we provide speakers, please check out our site at: or on the individuals meetings.

If you are a writer / author, blogger, business owner, freelancer/solo-preneur, new or experienced Toastmaster, career professional, or someone looking to take their personal development to the next level, then this group is for you! We teach you the right tools for the right job.

For event planners, we have educational, entertaining, and motivational speakers for every topic to suit your meeting needs (just contact the organizer of this meetup).
