1:1 Advisory Services

Welcome, Friend.
Speaking is not the path for the faint of heart.
It is not for the dabblers or those who want to hire someone to do the heavy lifting and expect it to result in lots of high fee paid speaking appearances.

It is the path for those who want to drive the world forward. 
It is the path of heroes.
It is the path of warriors, counselors and wise souls.
It is the path of activists, activators and inspirational giants.

To be truly great at public speaking you must:
Be humble.
Be human.
Be helpful.

Speaking is a supremely powerful platform from which you can shape the world.
If you have a core challenge that relates to paid speaking, I can help.

Our results:
New Leaf works directly with event hosts and all the top speaker bureaus and agencies in the world.  Over the past six years we negotiated, globally, more than $28,000,0000 in speaking fees for our clients.

We continuously cultivate our network of more than 50 speaker bureaus, speaker agencies and talent agencies, encompassing more than 500 individual agents worldwide. We also work directly with event hosts to handle all in-bound inquiries for our clients.

To discuss your most compelling challenge or your biggest upcoming opportunity with regard to paid speaking, it is as easy as 1-2-3:

1) Reach out to us at Advisory@NewLeafSpeakers.com,

2) Let us know which type of session (30 min phone call or 60 min video-conference) you’d like to confirm and

3)  We’ll be in touch asap to work out a date and time with you.

These sessions are specifically designed to focus on Y-O-U and I’ll offer my insight into what could be most helpful for you to do next.  Our conversation will be confidential, spontaneous, fast-paced and highly practical.  

My style:  
I’m nice – in an industry not known for ‘nice.’  I’m direct, but kind.  Kindness does not mean naive or ineffective.  In fact, I believe that the opposite is true.  Being KIND is the secret ingredient that makes us good at what we do. It takes more time to be kind vs. abrupt, but for me, it is an essential part of how we operate as individuals and as a business. I want to help every single person who reaches out to me for advice.

In short, like the ad for Farmer’s Insurance:
We know a thing or two, because we’ve seen a thing or two — and we adore the work we do.  If you want to be a positive change-maker and need some guidance, I can’t wait to talk to you.

Let’s get this party started.  

Warmly,
Amy Gray

Core Challenges with Regard to Speaking:

  • BRAND EXTENSION INTO PAID SPEAKING
    You are a successful ___________(insert your chosen moniker here – author, actor, artist, rock-star, entrepreneur, TED speaker, politician, public figure) and receive frequent invitations to do speaking appearances….and would like to accept carefully screened invitations that will further your personal and professional initiatives, while not running you ragged
  • NEWBIE
    You are just getting started with paid speaking and do not yet have professional representation, but are hoping to find someone who will add you to their roster
  • SEEKING MORE PAID APPEARANCES AND/OR BIGGER FEES
    Agencies, bureaus and/or event hosts hired you to do some paid speaking and you’ve caught the bug for it…and want to do more of it….and earn more per appearance.
  • BOOK BEING PUBLISHED
    You are in the process of writing a book that will come out in the next 6-12 months and would like to get your ducks in a row so that if the book generates speaking inquiries, you’ll be ready
  • THINKING OF BRINGING YOUR SPEAKING BUSINESS ‘IN-HOUSE’
    You are represented by an agency or bureau or management company and feel a bit too removed from the actual conversations that shape the offers – yet you don’t have the bandwidth or speaking industry savvy to properly manage representation in-house
  • BREAKING INTO THE UNITED STATES MARKET FOR SPEAKING
    You are based outside the USA, or are here as a non-citizen, want to tap into the lucrative speaking market in the US and don’t know how to get started
  • DISILLUSIONED WITH PRIOR REPRESENTATION
    After a less than stellar experience with representation, you are wondering what went wrong and where to go next
  • OVERWHELMED BY SELF-MANAGING YOUR SPEAKING INQUIRIES
    You and/or your staff currently manage your speaking inquiries and are feeling overrun with the workload and would love to know about other options.

If you see a bit of yourself in one or more of those, let’s connect!
