Discover your ideal client and then position, package, price and promote yourself and your speaking programs. 
Learn the tried and tested strategies for turning cold leads into paid speaking engagements on global stages.

Live Monthly Mastermind
Each month I run a live Mastermind call to provide additional training and answer your most pressing questions. You can attend online and ask questions live. We also record these live monthly calls and make them available in the members-only area.

If you prefer to listen than watch the mastermind training videos we also provide MP3 audio downloadable versions so can listen when you're commuting, at the gym or on the move.

Attend Live Events and Meetups

Want to access a high-quality community of speakers? Then look no further.

Each year we organise live events and exclusive retreats in California's Napa Valley, New York's Catskill Mountains as well as in Scottish castles, Italian villas and on exotic islands in Asia. As a member of SpeakersU you will get the earliest access to register for these events and discounted rates.

In addition to this James also hosts informal local meetups when he is traveling around the world speaking and we tell SpeakersU members about these first. This picture was taken at a recent Singapore meetup!

“I’ve been working for a few months now with James Taylor. I’ve had access to the exclusive online portal where I’ve watched loads of videos that James provides. Plus there’s lots of downloads in there and I’ve had email coaching and support from James all the way through. It’s been a really amazing process and I certainly don’t think I would be anywhere near where I am right now without his help. So I’d definitely recommend James....James has all the content and will give you all the support you need.”
