STOP WISHING YOU WERE
ON THAT STAGE &
WRITE THE
DANG TALK!
I had to get OUT of my business 
so I could work ON my talk.

I had to get OUT OF MY BUSINESS
so I could work on my talk.

Get away from your office &
WRITE YOUR TALK
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.

African Proverb
When I first started SPEAK With Confidence, I trained every speaker individually. We did one-on-ones and got them where they needed to be by the time they got on stage. And it ended up being a disservice to them.

After they saw their fellow speakers on stage, they saw their potential was even bigger than what they originally thought. So, after two events, I gathered all of their feedback and decided to make this an online course AND an in-person workshop. Their response was staggering.

MORE! More days. More time. More interaction. 

We took every bit of feedback the speakers would give us (and they gave us a lot!) and created the SPEAK With Confidence Retreat. A space for you to write your talk, practice your talk, and learn from subject matter experts on how to get in front of booking managers and sell your talk. No "journaling time" because I want to take a break. Truly impactful time for you to REALLY work on your talk, workshop, keynote, break-out session, or presentation and walk away with exactly what you need to make it a reality.

Not just an online course, but a fully built-out 3-day 4-night in-person Rockstar retreat. This experience includes TONS of hands-on work so you have the time to write, practice, and give your talk in front of other incredible professionals - JUST LIKE YOU!

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.

"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.

The Clocktower Cabaret is the cabaret club in the basement of the historic Clocktower in downtown Denver. It's just a few blocks from The Curtis Hotel where you'll be staying. 

The Cabaret has cozy couches, little cocktail tables, a stage with lights and sound, and the right aura for inspiration. We even have a Paleo chef who serves us healthy, nutritious breakfasts and lunches. You'll be blissed out.

When it's time, we get you outside to play on the green just above - then get you walking through the city to experience what Denver has to offer. Get a feel for where you'll be here:

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.

KRISTIN DARGA

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!

RACHEL DOWNEY
Business Guide
SPEAK With Confidence helped me face my fear of public speaking by understanding myself first. The coursework and teamwork was deeply introspective which led to the whole experience being very transformative for me personally and professionally! SWC helped me grow & show up as a better version of myself helping me focus on my talk with REAL meaning & impact. Melanie’s inspiration and coaching literally transformed me to show up on a whole new level! The return on investment to my organization was immediate upon my return from the retreat!

Attending SPEAK With Confidence was an extraordinary experience. Frankly, it changed my life.

We all learned from each other in a safe and positive environment. There is no better facilitator on the planet than Melanie. Trust and believe in her. Take that step forward. I promise you one thing, it will change your life and you will realize your dream.

COLIN POTTS
Chief Operating Officer of ROSM
Melanie Spring is amazeballs!! She created a speaking workshop that pulls you out of your comfort zone and helps you get your message to the masses. SPEAK With Confidence helps you create a talk from the stories and knowledge that is already embedded in your brain - not from memorizing or slides. Melanie and her crew work with you and give you all the tools you need to get on the stage and speak with confidence (pun intended) by showing you that it doesn't have to be that hard. If you are looking to attend a workshop that will allow you to craft a talk with a big message, this is the workshop you MUST attend.

RETREAT OPTION 1: ON MESSAGE
In-person RETREAT
Printed workbook &
ONLINE COURSE
WE HEARD YOU. You want to come, but you're not ready for the stage... YET!

The biggest objection we've had, other than not having the dates open, is that some of you are terrified of getting on stage. We totally get it. Not everyone is ready yet. So, we built an option just for you. You get the in-person training AND the online course, but you can watch the whole experience from the comfort of the audience. 
"I canceled the week of but Melanie made me come anyway. I almost didn't come back for Day 2 but showed up because of how amazing it was. I was beyond scared to get up to share my talk, but I did it - and I'm SO glad I did." - Cara Frank
WANT TO TRY BEFORE YOU'RE ALL IN?
Grab an On Message spot to get into the community, watch the On Stage & On Video folks learn and soak in all the magic while you write your own talk with all the access to our Crew.

LIVE IN DENVER? 
If you already live in Colorado, you can commute in each day instead of doing the all-inclusive option of On Stage. It still gives you an all-access pass to everything, yet gives you the flexibility to go home at night.

RETREAT OPTION 2: ON STAGE
Get yourself 
ON STAGE
In-person
RETREAT
Sitting in the audience can only get you so far. Our speakers have raved about the course AND the workbook. Our audience members have been thrilled with the final outcome - yet every time we host an in-person experience, they ask for more. More days. More interaction. More community. 

The SPEAK With Confidence Retreat gives you all of that and more. Hosting you at the swanky Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver & workshopping at The Clocktower Cabaret, you get to work with other professionals just like you to craft & deliver the keynote speech or workshop you've been trying to work on - and you'll walk away with it completed.

We include your hotel room at The Curtis Hotel for 4 nights along with breakfast, lunch and most dinners to make sure you get the full experience. We also have surprises planned along the way to keep you on your toes - but I PROMISE, you'll have PLENTY of time to work on your talk while also getting the help to make it a reality. As soon as you step off the airport train at Union Station, we've got you covered.

The biggest piece of feedback from our alumni is they learned the most from watching other speakers get training so we'll make sure you have PLENTY of hands-on training & time to watch your fellow speakers.

If you want to take it one step further, get a demo video and personal brand package for your speaking business on top of this awesomeness! (keep reading)
