Together, we’ll rock your talk.

Let's Rock Your Talk


Rock Your Talk became a thing because my corporate colleagues, entrepreneur friends, and non-profit buddies kept asking me how I got out on the speaking circuit. My top 3 recommendations were to write a killer talk, learn how to rock a stage, and get a speaking demo to show it off. Their next question: How?

"this experience has grown my confidence exponentially." - Beth wenger

So, Patrick and I got together to give you all of it. Patrick Frank of Patchbay Media is a stellar videographer with a crew and I'm Melanie Spring - a brand strategist and professional speaker who helps businesses and humans craft their stories. We hosted our first event June 15, 2017, and it was so spectacular, we were begged to do it again.

During the weeks leading up to the event, you'll work with Melanie to write a 15- to 45-minute talk. You'll do this so you can use the longer keynote later. While doing this, you'll also be writing your 5- to 8-minute talk for the Rock Your Talk audience and demo video.

From the content & your body language to using the whole stage, she'll make sure you know what you're talking about when you rock your talk.

On the day of the event, we'll get together as a group of speakers and do group coaching. You'll also give a trial run of your talk on the theater stage.
