Stepping into the spotlight, virtually or live, in front of a room full of strangers happen to be your worst nightmare.
Just the mere thought of speaking in public makes you break into a cold sweat and feel sick to your stomach.
And whenever you’re invited to speak, the first three words that pop out of your mouth are, "No, thank you!"
Perhaps the most painful part of all….
You know that you’re sabotaging your business by giving into your public speaking fears, and missing out on important career-advancing opportunities.
Look, you're a smart professional with tons of knowledge, wisdom and expertise to share with audiences of all sizes.
So you should be a natural at speaking with ease, yet you’re still struggling with crippling performance anxiety.
Perhaps in your most courageous (or desperate) moments you've made the commitment to finally beat your public speaking fear.
So you watched a bunch of TED talks, wrote out a killer presentation, practiced and practiced... and practiced some more.
Maybe you even joined Toastmasters or took a public speaking workshop.
But even after all that courageous effort…
Each time you stepped on stage or in front of a camera, once again the words stuck in your throat, you started sweating buckets, felt nauseous, and you still felt as terrified as always.
Nothing was working!
I’m here with some awesome, life-changing news….
Keep reading, as I’m going to share why you’ve been searching for the key to overcoming your public speaking fear in all the wrong places.
How can I be so sure?
I’m a HUGE introvert, and being in the spotlight used to be my worst nightmare!
When I was 10, I had such a traumatic public speaking experience that I swore I’d never go in front an audience again.
But fortunately, I was smart enough to eventually break that promise.
As an entrepreneur struggling to grow my business, I knew that I didn’t have any other option.
I had to step outside of my comfort zone if I wanted to succeed in my career, and also become financially prosperous.
After I made that decision, I wish I could tell you that I easily walked on stage and was immediately brilliant.
Spoiler alert: I wasn’t!
Quite the opposite, actually. I was awful! I was still terrified of my audience and hated every minute of it.
And I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong, especially since I’d been practicing and practicing and it wasn’t helping me combat my stage fright.
I discovered that contrary to popular belief…
Wrong! Public speaking is NOT a natural-born talent! It’s a skill that can be taught, learned, internalized and practiced for great public speaking success. With the right program and coaching, ANYONE can become a great public speaker.
Self-proclaimed pubic speaking gurus tell you to force yourself to speak in public, even if you’re scared. And so, you did.
But if you've only been approaching public speaking from a place of fear, you've been doing it wrong all along.
When you approach public speaking from a place of fear, you’re focusing on what the audience thinks of you rather than what you can give them. Thinking about your fear will set you up for failure every time
Instead, in order to become a great speaker, you must approach public speaking from a place of LOVE.
If you focus on your audience and their needs, you will be able to genuinely connect with them and create a transformational experience.
You’re determined to succeed and so you practice and practice. But you continue feeling scared, anxious and stressed about speaking.
That's because there is a right way and a wrong way to approach public speaking.
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 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!"

So glad you asked! The biggest difference between Brilliant Speakers Academy® and everything else on the market is that it actually focuses on overcoming your fear of public speaking before going into building connection with your audience, crafting an amazing presentation, thoroughly preparing for a talk, and acing it once you’re on stage.
While other programs might focus on many other aspects of public speaking, if you don’t overcome your fear and learn to truly love the spotlight, there is no point in learning anything else. You will self-sabotage and avoid opportunities no matter how much you know. Or even worse, you will take opportunities, “do it scared” from the place of fear, and decide that public speaking just “ain't your thing”.
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 the lifetime access to the program! You can come back to it over and over again. And the best part is that any time I make updates to the program, you get all of it for absolutely free as a BSA student.
There are huge international programs and groups and free meetups that give you an opportunity to practice in front of a live audience. And of course, there is a place for them. But from what my students said to me and from my own personal experience, you don’t get the kind of teaching where you learn how to change the way you think about public speaking. Much less how to carefully and strategically put an effective talk together. The kind of talk that has the power to truly engage, move, and impact your audience.
You can practice and practice using free opportunities to speak in front of an audience, but if you practice the wrong things the wrong way, you won’t be who you were meant to be – an amazing speaker.
All the free strategy and practice will only take you so far if you don’t know how to achieve a mindset of overcoming your fear. Nobody teaches it the way I teach it. Because I had to overcome the fear myself, I had to walk every single step that I teach.
It’s not how to overcome fear in theory. It’s practical and logical steps on what you should do to get from point A, where you are scared and uncomfortable, to point B, where you love the spotlight. It’s for people like me and you, who never thought that public speaking could be our thing.
Look, there are some things you are born with and some things that can be taught and learned. Having a perfect pitch, for example, is something you are born with… or without, like myself. Public speaking is not a perfect pitch. 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. Just plain awful. I couldn’t speak one-on-one without going crimson red, let alone speak publicly. And now, not only do I absolutely love public speaking, I teach it! If I told myself, "oh, it’s a talent and I clearly don’t have it", I wouldn’t be here today. I wouldn’t have built several businesses. I wouldn’t have made a difference in countless lives. I’ve worked on it and I’ve learned how to walk this road. And I know how to teach you this skill.
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!
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. Remember, you have lifetime access to this program. You can take it at your own pace if keeping up with weekly modules feels too intense.
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 a different day. Or maybe just a few minutes every couple of days. You’re free to budget your time however you need to. Remember, you have a lifetime access to this course, so you can always come back.
Yes, you will have access to all the modules as soon as you sign up.
However... The way I teach the program is step-by-step, module-by-module. Each module reinforces a previous one and builds a foundation for a new one.I want to make sure that you have a chance to learn, implement, and practice everything that we cover in each module.
Here is my recommendation. Tackle no more than one module a week and budget two weeks for Module 5 "Craft Your Talk". And remember, you can always come back and re-take any module. You have a lifetime access to this course, so you can learn at your own pace.
"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."
