Work With Deirdre

“Crazy Good Talks Blueprint ™”

Create your own dynamic, money-making talk — and get it booked

Face it. People think Financial Advisors and Insurance Agents are all the same, and if you’re an Expert, well everyone else has a speech and a book to sell too. If want to have a booming business, help loads of people, and still have a life you MUST do something to stand out from the herd.

Creating a Crazy Good Money-Making Talk™ may be exactly what you need.

If you’re like most Advisors, Agents, and Experts who are out there speaking you’re giving regular talks. But, there is a difference between giving a regular talk and giving a talk that makes you stand out and makes you money.   A regular talk might get you a few compliments (if you’re lucky), but a Crazy Good Money-Making Talk™ pays you well on the front end and/or brings you plenty of high-caliber clients in one fell swoop.

The Crazy Good Talks Blueprint™ will show you how to write Crazy Good Money-Making Talks™ and how to get booked to deliver them to audiences of your most likely clients.

  • I invest a LOT of time and money on my own development and I can tell you Deirdre is the BEST investment I've ever made to uplevel my speaking results. I speak professionally for a living so keeping my audience engaged is imperative. In just one session, Deirdre showed me how to engage my audiences so effectively that I've got them in the palm of my hands from beginning to end!

  • Deirdre's Crazy Good Talks class will forever change the work I do as a business owner. I learned skills on how to become a speaker that not only educates, but motivates the audience to meet and become clients. The skills learned not only will apply to speaking but also in every day client interactions. I brought in over $26,000 worth of new business the first time I gave a talk using Deirdre's Crazy Good Talks Blueprint™.

  • Deirdre is amazing! Her program, Crazy Good Talks™ has helped me double my revenue through speaking. Before working with Deirdre, most of my audience would lull around, tell me good job and walk away. I had no idea that so many people would be interested in working with me if only they had a more direct path to my services. Now instead of feeling defeated, I'm scheduling appointments and bringing value to tons of new clients!

The money-making talks you’ll create using the Crazy Good Talks Blueprint can be delivered in two ways:

1) Marketing Talk-A talk that brings in clients or sells your book/product from the back of the room.

2) Keynote or Training-A presentation that groups pay you $1,500-$10,000+ to deliver (Financial Advisors and Insurance Agents don’t count yourself out on this one, I have several Advisor clients who are getting paid to speak!).

The program will walk you through the steps of creating a revenue-generating talk that can be given in your own backyard, or if you want to travel to speak, you can do that too. They can also be delivered as a tele-class or webinar.

 

The Crazy Good Talks Blueprint™  is an Intimate Twelve Month Virtual Group Training program.

The program teaches Financial Advisors, Insurance Agents , & Experts how to:

  1. Build their brands, increase visibility, and become the “Go-To”professional in their community or niche.
  2. Bring in business via speaking – increasing the amount of appointments made or books/products sold at each talk.
  3. Better the world by spreading their unique message via speaking.

“I have done public speaking most of my life, and I’m affiliated with a group of fi-nancial advisors who rely heavily on public speaking for marketing. Even so, Deirdre’s material is a game changer in the way I look at public speaking.Recently I had the opportunity to give a presentation that was part interview, part audition. I was one of three advisors looking to help a prominent real estate com-pany manage roughly $1 million. By the time I had returned to my office, there was a voice mail message saying that the board had unanimously agreed to work with me. Thanks Deirdre.”

“When I first started working with Deirdre, I was already a polished, experienced presenter but I wanted to “up my game”. In hindsight, it was the best money I’ve ever spent on my own development.Once we started, I couldn’t believe how much more there was to learn about becoming a top-notch presenter. She greatly accelerated my skill development, eventually taking me to a level I could never have reached on my own.

In short, she’s the real deal: Professional. Experienced. Focused. Results-oriented. And just a pleasure to work with. If you’re looking to seriously up your game on public speaking or training—whether it’s content, structure, or delivery—hiring Deirdre is the way to get there.”

“I have been speaking for several years to promote my business and have received good reviews. I knew I could be better and I knew Deirdre was the one to help me up my speaking game. After working through her Crazy Good Talks™ program, I have a better topic, better content and more confidence. Recently I delivered my new talk to a group. I got rave reviews. The most interesting came from someone who had heard me speak before. She couldn’t believe the difference between my before and after. I was good before, but I am CRAZY GOOD now! Thanks Deirdre!”
