Stepping onto a stage, into a spotlight, or onto a Zoom call is your worst nightmare.
Just thinking about speaking in front of others makes you break into a cold sweat and feel sick to your stomach. If you’re honest with yourself, you’re not even that comfortable on the phone.
And whenever you’re invited to speak at an event - either online or in person, your immediate reaction is a quick and straightforward, “No, thank you!”
You know you’re sabotaging yourself by missing out on valuable career opportunities.
You’re an intelligent professional. You have extensive knowledge, wisdom, and expertise to share with audiences of all sizes.
You SHOULD be a natural speaker - You KNOW this stuff! But as soon as you’re called upon to speak and share, you freeze, and all your performance anxiety spills out.
At some point, after years of frustration, embarrassment, and missed opportunities, 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 wrote your own killer presentation and practiced in the mirror.
Maybe you joined a toastmasters group, watched YouTube videos, and felt like you were making progress.
But despite your best efforts, when the camera turned on, or the stage lit up, 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 years.
But after years of turning down opportunities, ducking out of meetings to avoid answering questions on the spot, and saying no to valuable networking lunches, 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. Why?
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.
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.
“Public speaking is a talent which I just don’t have... nothing to be done about it.”
“I’m an introvert; I can’t handle the attention.”
“I hate being the center of attention.”
“I’m not attractive (or charismatic, or tall, or whatever) enough to be on a stage.”
“I’m not an expert. Why would people want to listen to me?”
“I have an accent - people won’t be able to understand me,”
These are all just excuses to fail - things to stop you from trying.
You can keep trying to hide behind them, or you can look at them objectively and realize that these beliefs don't define you or your ability to thrive on a stage, in front of a camera, on social media, or in a networking room.
You’ve heard of the idea that you should face your fears and just do it anyway. Or “Do it scared!” as they say.
And so you have. And, unsurprisingly, you’re STILL scared.
If you've only ever approached public speaking from a place of fear, that’s all you will ever feel on a stage.
When you’re thinking about your fear, you’re NOT thinking about all the value and lessons you can give your audience. And that comes across in your presentations.
If you focus instead on your audience and their needs, you’ll connect with them and create a genuinely transformational experience.
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 other public speaking strategies and tactics.
"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."

Victoria, you are amazing, very few people have these traits. I am super happy and grateful to be part of this program!"
"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."

I do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, but I’m only looking for serious action takers. You need to show that you gave the program a try before requesting a refund. I do this because I am not looking for tire-kickers, but true go-getters that want to dive in and get results quickly.
You must do the work. If all you do is watch a few videos and call it a day, then save your money and don't enroll into the program. Sorry if that sounds a little harsh, but seriously, I mean it.
This is a life-changing program, and I stand by it 100%. But if you do the work and you’re still not satisfied, show me your completed work within 30 days of enrolling, and I’ll gladly give you a full refund.
"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!"
I’m a big believer in the power of community. I want you to have a place to share stories of public speaking fears, ask questions, and get support throughout the program.
I’ll also be in the group daily to offer my support and feedback.
You can only learn so much in theory - eventually, you have to execute.
That’s why I’m giving you a safe, supportive place to practice your public speaking in front of other students virtually. No stakes, and I’ll give you direct feedback.
You can attend as many Grab the Mic Days as you want. We'll have it scheduled every two months via Zoom!

"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'm very confident about all the speaking and presenting I have coming up!"

"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."
The most significant difference between Brilliant Speakers Academy® and everything else on the market is that it focuses on overcoming your fear of public speaking before building a connection with your audience, crafting an amazing presentation, thoroughly preparing for a talk, and acing it once you’re on stage.
Most public speaking courses teach you to “do it scared.” I know that until you conquer the fear, you won’t be a powerful public speaking - either on a stage, on camera, or just meeting new people at a networking event.
Let’s do it right. Let’s start from where you are and grow together by tapping into your mind and into your heart at the same time.
You get lifetime access to the program! You’ll even get automatic access to any future updates.
You can certainly learn from these resources, but most don’t address changing your mindset around speaking in public. Even fewer discuss how to carefully and strategically put a compelling talk together. The kind of talk that has the power to engage, move, and impact your audience.
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 public speaking could be our thing.
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!
I was horrible at public speaking as a child and even as a young adult. And now, not only do I love public speaking, I teach it! I’ve learned how to walk this road. And I know how to teach you this skill.
Having said that, I can’t force you to do the work. This program will only work for you if you put in the work and follow the steps.
We all have 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. You have lifetime access to this program, so there's not "falling behind".
My recommendation is to set aside 2-3 hours a week. You don’t need to do it all in one sitting. Maybe an hour one day and another hour on another day. Or maybe just a few minutes every couple of days. You’re free to budget your time however you need to.
While you'll have access to all modules right away, I recommend pacing yourself rather than binge-watching the entire program Netflix-style.
This program is taught step-by-step, module-by-module. This method is tried and true to give you the best possible chance of success. Each module reinforces a previous module and builds a 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.
I'm very excited to see where your public speaking passion takes you, but I don't think Brilliant Speakers Academy® is the right fit for you. I wish you lots of success in your journey!
