Student Success Stories: Aditi Ramchandani

Los Angeles, CA

Here at The Speaker Lab, our goal is to help you get Booked and Paid to Speak. Our Student Success Stories share first hand experiences from our students of how they’ve booked paid speaking gigs and grown their businesses by applying the concepts they learned in our courses.

Before The Speaker Lab, I really struggled with…

Before The Speaker Lab, I really struggled with how to showcase myself as a professional speaker, how to create a talk and how to book gigs. I had been trying to break into speaking for YEARS. I felt lost in what steps to take and did not feel confident at all. I knew I had potential but no idea how to actualize that potential.

The Speaker Lab has helped me…

The Speaker Lab has helped me position myself as a go-to expert, create a powerful talk and book my first paid speaking gig! Because of The Speaker Lab, I now have a professional speaking website, demo reel, and speaker sheet which I use to pitch myself as a speaker. TSL helped me look professional when approaching large companies, helped me in what to say in meetings with decision-makers, and how to negotiate contracts. I was completely CLUELESS and nervous about a lot of these steps but now I feel confident in what to do and how to move forward!

My biggest success as a speaker so far has been…

Since joining The Speaker Lab my biggest success as a speaker has been delivering my very first keynote talk to a billion-dollar company within 6 months of joining! I had NEVER written or delivered a keynote in my life before joining TSL! This program has given me the confidence and tools to launch my speaking career and has changed the trajectory of my life and I am SO grateful!
