You are a successful business professional or an entrepreneur, and you really KNOW your stuff.
You’re smart. You have extensive knowledge, wisdom, and expertise to share with your team, with your clients, or with an audience.
But still, stepping onto a stage, into a meeting, or onto a Zoom call is your worst nightmare.
As soon as you’re called upon to speak and share, you freeze, and all your speaking anxiety spills out.
Just thinking about speaking in front of others makes you break into a cold sweat and feel sick to your stomach.
At some point, after yet another frustrating or embarrassing moment in front of your team or your clients, you decided enough was enough. You were going to get over your fear once and for all.
You watched a bunch of TED talks to learn from the speakers.
You practiced in the mirror.
Maybe you joined a Toastmasters group, watched YouTube videos, enrolled in classes, and felt like you were making progress.
But despite your best efforts, when the camera turned on or all heads turned to you during a live presentation, the words got stuck in your throat - if you even made it that far.
I’m a HUGE introvert. Being in the spotlight used to be my worst nightmare. Literally.
A traumatic speaking experience when I was 10 turned me off of public speaking for good... or at least I believed so.
But after years of turning down opportunities, ducking out of meetings to avoid answering questions on the spot, and saying no to networking events, I decided I could no longer afford to stay quiet.
As an entrepreneur struggling to grow my business, I knew that I had no choice but to step it up and figure it out.
If I wanted to succeed in my career and become financially prosperous, I had to overcome my fear.
I practiced and practiced, and nothing changed. I still felt paralyzed with fear every time eyes were on me.
Let me share something very important with you that NOBODY TALKS ABOUT...
Your parents and teachers have been telling you “Practice Makes Perfect” since you were a kid. But before you can practice something, you have to learn how to do it correctly.
Practice and strategy will only get you so far if you don’t know how to overcome the fear mindset.
You must learn how to master your fear BEFORE you can implement all the other public speaking strategies and tactics.
If you keep on practicing the same wrong thing (as most people do), you will continue getting the same wrong result and remain stuck.
Before you can perfect public speaking, you need to learn the RIGHT WAY to practice it.
The biggest gift you can give your future self is to learn how to FEEL confident on the inside, rather than simply APPEAR confident on the outside and "fake it till you make it".
Because only then will you truly connect with your audience, be seen as an authentic leader, and create a true impact in other people's lives.

"I have done a lot of public speaking classes as I embark on a career that also includes doing talks and coaching, and your program is by far the best that I have done! It really clicked for me and has made a real difference! Love your program so much."

"I have learned a lot through Brilliant Speakers Academy. Victoria is super talented and owns the KEY to public speaking.
She is responsive, supportive, and has excellent problem-solving skills. She communicates in a simple and easy to understand manner. And she doesn't stop at teaching, she follows up to ensure you achieve your purpose. She uses all the tools necessary to move participants to their goals.
Victoria, you are amazing, very few people have these traits. I am super happy and grateful to be part of this program!"
"I was looking for years for good public speaking classes. I attended several master-classes or pre-classes and I never got one that really attracted me. Due to my job, I do presentations frequently but I was feeling I was not very good. I was scared of my accent and I was intimidated being in front of people. When I attended Victoria’s masterclasses, I got connected immediately.
I did not hesitate to join Brilliant Speakers Academy. This is the best investment I have done in years. These classes have changed the whole perspective I had about public speaking. I love the way Victoria guides you to get the best from you. She is always willing to help and support you. I love the confidence she transmits on you. I am really happy and proud of being part of the Brilliant Speakers Academy. The sky is the limit and I am going for more!"

"When I joined Brilliant Speakers Academy, I was looking for help and guidance to create and produce videos to sell my sales coaching program and for help effectively speaking in front of groups of salespeople that might be interested in my sales coaching.
The program gave me the confidence and tools that I needed to effectively speak in front of groups of strangers live or on video.
Victoria is a coaches’ coach. Her coaching style is smooth, fun, entertaining and very enjoyable. She coaches from a place of experience, authenticity, and honesty.
I would highly recommend her coaching and her program, Brilliant Speakers Academy, to anyone looking for help and guidance in the area of public speaking."
Expert Sales Coaching and Sales Management Consulting
"Brilliant Speakers Academy provided me the peace of mind and confidence that I needed to overcome my fear of public speaking. Prior to joining, I was afraid of forgetting my speech, of not keeping my audience’s attention, and of not being enough to step into the spotlight.
Throughout the course, Victoria put me at ease and gave me a simple plan on how to handle my fears, how to structure my speech, what to do so that my speech feels like a natural conversation, and how to handle unexpected things.
I loved how going through the program was not overwhelming, the videos were short, clear, and actionable.
I highly recommend Brilliant Speakers Academy. In all honesty, this has been one of the best online courses I've taken in a while. It has been a true blessing!"
"Brilliant Speakers Academy is absolutely worth doing if you want to be a better public speaker. Not making the speaking all about me was a huge breakthrough for me. I feel quite confident about how to structure my talks and presentations moving forward. The Brilliant Speakers Journal provided great tools to work with as well.
I'm very confident about all the speaking and presenting I have coming up!"
"I am very glad that I took the Brilliant Speakers Academy course. My public speaking fear diminished a lot after implementing Victoria’s methods.
I was able to give a very important presentation at work just after 3 weeks into the class without being taken over by my fear of speaking in front of people.
I learned a lot about myself and how to control my fear and not let the fear take over me.
Victoria, thank you very much for being there answering my questions and encouraging me during this whole process I really appreciate all the help."
"Brilliant Speakers Academy was more than just a public speaking program for me. Victoria has not only developed a breakthrough well-structured program that helped me overcome my fear of being in the spotlight, she also created a truly caring and supporting community that helped me on this journey!
Through this course, I feel I have gained skills, confidence, understanding of what public speaking is and how to shift my focus from my own self-image to truly helping others, and even a friendship...as this is how Victoria treats each and every student enrolled in her program.
I highly recommend Brilliant Speakers to everyone looking to not only practice public speaking, but truly understand and work with fears and underlying motives."
Tax Manager, Life Coach

"When I joined Brilliant Speakers Academy, I had 4 goals in mind:
Brilliant Speakers Academy addressed all of these and more. It gave me the tools to step in front of an audience with confidence and passion. It taught me the framework to craft a talk, to prepare for a presentation, and to overcome my fears.
Once I implemented the strategies from the course, my presentations became a lot better. In fact, I started looking for opportunities to present instead of hiding from them."
GROUP COACHING PROGRAM
The group coaching program is 3 months long, and you can join any time. We do NOT start and go through the program simultaneously. Instead, everyone joins at different times and goes through the program at their own pace in order to achieve their specific goals and milestones. You can extend the program by another 3 months at the end if you would like to continue working with me inside the Accelerator.
You get lifetime access to the Brilliant Speakers Academy® course (the core curriculum) and any future updates I make to it.
While you'll have access to all the modules right away, I recommend pacing yourself rather than binge-watching the entire course Netflix-style.
Remember, it's not about watching videos and hoping you remember everything I teach you at the moment you have to speak. It's about changing your whole perspective on speaking in public, implementing and internalizing everything you learned, establishing daily routines around it, and making it a part of who you are.
Public speaking is not something you’re either born with or not. It’s not a talent. It’s a skill, and like any skill, it can be taught, learned, internalized, and practiced. Anyone can become a great public speaker. Anyone!
Having said that, I can’t force you to do the work and I can't do it for you. This program will only work for you if you put in the work and follow the steps and my coaching.
We all have a limited amount of time we can invest in ourselves. Remember, even if you only invested a few minutes a day into the right program, it would be way more transformational for you than if you invested no time at all or if you invested lots of time into practicing the wrong things over and over.
My recommendation is to set aside 3-4 hours a week. You don’t need to do it all in one sitting. Maybe an hour one day and another couple of hours on another day. Or maybe just a few minutes every couple of days. You’re free to budget your time however you need to.
This program is taught step-by-step, module-by-module. And on top of it, you get weekly coaching directly from me.
This method is tried and true to give you the best possible chance of success. Each module reinforces a previous module and builds the foundation for a new one. I want to make sure that you can learn, implement, and practice everything that we cover in each module before starting on the next one.
And remember, you have lifetime access to the entire core curriculum so you can always come back and go through the course if you need a refresher.
You can certainly learn from other resources, but most don’t address changing your mindset around speaking in public and assume that somehow you'll overcome your fear of speaking simply by doing it. Which is not the case, as I'm sure you already know.
It’s not about learning the theory of overcoming your fear; it’s about practical and logical steps to get from point A (scared and uncomfortable) to point B (confident and enigmatic). It’s for people like me and you, who never thought that speaking confidently and actually enjoying being in front of an audience could be our thing.
My system is unique because it's designed to make fundamental changes to the way you think about your audience, yourself, and public speaking in general. I don't teach you to APPEAR confident (a.k.a. fake it till you make it). I teach you how to truly feel confident. Nobody else teaches it this way.
Let’s do it right. Let's skip over years of trial-and-error and get straight to the results with an easy-to-follow, step-by-step system that’s been proven with hundreds of students. Let’s start from where you are and grow together by tapping into your mind and into your heart at the same time.
