Our Story

We’re here to give speakers the resources we wish we had. 

Hi, I'm Grant Baldwin, founder of The Speaker Lab.

Back in 2008, I was a broke youth pastor who didn’t really know what I wanted to do in life. Through a few twists and turns, I decided to start a speaking business. I worked hard to build my business and get paid to speak, all while trying to figure things out on my own because there weren’t a ton of great resources out there.

Despite starting my speaking career during a financial crisis in 2008, I’ve earned over $2 million from 500+ paid engagements all over the world. I’ve done everything from closed-door workshops to keynotes in front of 13,000 people.

But here’s the thing — I’m just a normal dude. I don’t have a crazy backstory or celebrity following. I just had a message to share and a dream to make it happen, and 14 years and thousands of paid presentations later, I’m happy to say I did.

Drop your name and email below and I’ll send you a short 7 step guide that shows you the exact things I did to book over $2M in speaking gigs.

I want to give you the resources I wish I had.

In 2015, I started The Speaker Lab to give other speakers resources that I wished I had when I started speaking. Since starting The Speaker Lab, I’ve seen over and over how regular people in every industry imaginable have changed their lives and careers through getting booked and paid to speak — even during a pandemic! 

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.
