WRITE THE
DANG TALK!
SPEAK With Confidence is the only public speaking course that helps you build a talk that looks AND sounds like YOU. 

Focusing on your personal brand, your stories, and your natural way of speaking, you'll walk away with all the tools you need to rock your talk.
Make yourself a priority &
SPEAK WITH CONFIDENCE
Think back to the last conference you attended. You heard an inspirational speaker & thought, "I can do that." So, you pictured yourself on the big stage. You started thinking about what you would share. You went back to the office to work on it. And you got sucked back into your to-do list - for other people! 

You keep saying to yourself, "I'm going to speak at this next year." You sit down on a chair at the neighborhood pool where you get your big ideas and write your outline - only to get back to the office and abandon it all again on Monday.

You find yourself back at that same conference hearing more speakers and KNOW you need to be up there but never find the time to make it happen. So...

You hire someone to write your talk for you - and after you read what they came up with FROM YOUR IDEAS, you realize it doesn't sound like you - at all. 

You pay a lot of money for a class on performance or booking stages and then wonder, "WHAT THE HECK WILL I SAY?!"

You're not alone. Almost every speaker I've worked with has been right where you are. Including me. You tell everyone you want to do a TEDtalk or speak at SXSW or do a workshop at the conference you attend every year. You know more than the speakers. Yet, you also know that YOU are the reason you're not speaking. 

"I'm so busy." "I don't have the time." "I don't have the money." "My to-do list is too long."

It's time to make yourself a priority and WRITE YOUR DANG TALK!
Someone needs to hear what you have to say.
LET'S WRITE THAT TALK &
Get you on those stages
Introducing:
speak with confidence
SPEAK With Confidence is an online course AND in-person experience designed to walk you through crafting and delivering your talk - your way.

If you’re an author, speaker, workshop facilitator, entrepreneur, or you have to give presentations at work, this all-inclusive retreat will help you write your next keynote, finish that unfinished workshop, or just give you the confidence to tell that story you’ve been wanting to tell. 
When you sign up for online only access, we'll send you a big printed workbook (yes, real paper!) and give you  access to the online course with videos, audio, and a PDF of the workbook. You'll be in the Rockstars Community with access to your peers & trainers.
"The value of this course is insane! The coaching, the branding, the staging, the input on hair, makeup & wardrobe, the flow of an A+ talk, the one-on-one time, the ongoing feedback... The course was definitely underpriced for all of the tangible value!" - Julie Lopez, SPEAK With Confidence Alumni
The Elizabeth Hotel
Every time someone comes to visit me in Denver, they ask "so, where is Colorado?" This made me realize that I wanted to take you to the REAL Colorado - in the foothills of the Rockies with plenty of space to walk, hike, and play. We had to choose the most incredible place to do it. The ONLY place to host this retreat - The Elizabeth in Fort Collins, CO. We even include a shuttle AND 4 nights at this gorgeous place.
MAGIC RAT
You get to do your best work in a space where live jazz musicians, comedians, and brilliant speakers rock the stage. The Magic Rat Live Music venue is inspirational, cozy, and significant. We wanted to make sure you got on stage where it all happens and then we push you to do your best work - even if you don't want to. Every single person gets on stage with stage coaching - not just the On Stage rockstars.

WHO IS BEHIND THIS?
SPARK YOUR MAGIC
Melanie Spring, Creator of SPEAK With Confidence

Working with big brands & entrepreneurs for the last 18 years, I noticed that every human had a personal story to tell along with their brand story. Diving into the how-to of writing a branded talk, I saw an even bigger pattern - people wanted to write their talk but focused on what they had to do at work instead of their bigger impact in the world. I had to change this.

As an international keynote speaker, brand strategist, and workshop facilitator, I took all of my corporate & personal branding experience and created a safe place for kickass humans (like you!) to write the talk they needed to write so they could share it with the world. 

It all begins with getting incredible humans together to make magic. But you have to show up in order to experience the magic for yourself.

OUR ROCKSTARS
LOVE THIS
This was a game changer for me!
I've been wanting to talk in front of people for years and when I watched Melanie on stage inspiring people from an authentic place, I saw myself enter into that realm. The most valuable part of SPEAK With Confidence was having a real workbook at my fingertips AND the trainers when I needed them. This whole experience is priceless - and I will definitely be doing it again.

LINDSEY CHARLET
Owner of HUB Ltd 
SPEAK With Confidence changed my life! It taught me how to not only own my story​ but gave me the courage to share it and the tools necessary to make my story impactful. I really appreciated the attention paid to the smallest of details, such as staging, blocking, pacing, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone looking to grow as a public speaker or as a human!

AJ GIBSON
Perspective Expert. TV Host. Author.
Attending SPEAK with Confidence was educational and transformative. The conference super exceeded any and all of my expectations. I thought I would just go and learn how to craft and deliver a talk but I learned so much more. This experience allowed me to grow beyond my wildest dreams. It amazes me how a group of strangers could all come together and love and encourage one another in a genuine environment. This experience is definitely in my Top 5 Most Amazing Moments of my life!

RYAN OWENS
Assistant VP at Synchrony
"On par with Simon Sinek’s Start With Why and Marie Forleo’s B-School. Different, and yet I would say more exceptional."
It was THE MOST INCREDIBLE program I’ve attended. The process throughout the weekend was carefully crafted. Each step opened up our confidence and by the end, we took to the stage and gave our talks LIVE! EVERY SINGLE DETAIL was thought of. The thoughtful details throughout the week made me know that I could trust the process. The process was CLEARLY tested and tested again and working. The group dynamic, confidence, and support was 1000% improving through each moment over the weekend. 

If you’re considering a program like this... do it... It's The ONLY one to consider. This is one of those programs that is on par with Simon Sinek’s Start With Why and Marie Forleo’s B-School. Different, and yet I would say more exceptional. The quality is high and value, priceless. Thank you to Melanie for creating this masterpiece and dynamic program that allowed me to find the next stage of my speaking career.

If you're ready to rock the stage and share your story and purpose with the world, the SPEAK With Confidence Accelerator IS the experience for you. It was worth every penny, and then some. I walked in with 25 strangers, and left with 25 best friends, and a talk that resonates with my souls, and the souls of my audience. I just unleashed a next level of confidence and I couldn't be more grateful.

ALEX AGRESTA
Purpose Alignment Coach at Purpose Pioneers
Public speaking has always been very intimidating to me, but Melanie presented this course in a way that made it approachable, and relatable. It's prepared with care and intention in every way, with attention to detail in everything from the venue, to the food, the content, and the people selected to attend. SPEAK With Confidence is a perfect reflection of who Melanie is as an individual... It’s thoughtful, personalized, elegant, and eloquent! It truly is magical and a safe space to face something that can be very scary. She held the space for me to see myself in a way I never have before.

DAYNA MILNE
Founder of Heart Compass
I have been to scores of events, conferences and training workshops in my career. Nothing compares to the experience and value I got out of SPEAK with Confidence. The pre-work and event sessions to get you from idea to keynote were highly effective. The people that were brought together were supportive and inspiring. Every detail of the event was on-point. Whether you want to write your first keynote or if you are an experienced speaker who wants to take their delivery to the next level, the SWC workshop is unequivocally the best (and most fun) journey to get you confident in front of a crowd and ready to bring your important message to the world!
