We teach speakers how to consistently find and book paid speaking gigs.

Whether you’re just starting or you’ve been a speaker for years, we have what you need to launch, build and grow your speaking business.

A LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDER

I’m Grant Baldwin, creator of The Speaker Lab.

After a few years of youth pastoring, I decided to start a speaking career. I worked hard to build my business and get paid to speak, all the while trying to figure things out on my own because there weren’t a ton of great resources out there.

The thing is, I’m just a normal dude. No crazy backstory, no celebrity following. I had a message to share and a dream to make it happen, and ten years and thousands of paid presentations later, I’m happy to say I did.

Today, I still travel and speak, but I spend most of my time working with The Speaker Lab to create resources that I wish I had when I was starting.

Story

“I don’t want to live a normal, boring, mundane existence, and I don’t think you do either.”

Our mission at The Speaker Lab is to give speakers clarity, confidence and a clear path to make an impact.

Our courses and coaching have helped thousands of speakers just like you start and grow their businesses, and we’d love to see how we can come alongside you and help you in your speaking journey.

Look, just because I’m a normal guy doesn’t mean I want to live a normal, mundane existence. I don’t think you want that for your life, either. In fact, I know you don’t or you wouldn’t be reading this.

If you think the path to a fulfilling and rewarding life includes sharing your message from the stage, find out more about how The Speaker Lab can help you get there.

Our Mission

We give speakers clarity, confidence & a clear path to make an impact!

I know what it feels like to be frustrated, overwhelmed and stressed with your speaking career and business. I felt those growing pains when I started, and through hard work and trial and error, I pushed through.

Here in The Speaker Lab, you’ll find training, support and a community of other speakers who will help you with your business! No matter where you’re at, there is someone who can come alongside you and help you get to the next level.

We’ll give you clarity about who you’re speaking to and what problem you’re helping them solve. We’ll equip you with confidence in your abilities to book gigs and knock them out of the park. We’ll help you see a clear path between where you are and where you want to be.
