When my company decided to interview a public speaking expert for the Engaging Leader Podcast, our first choice was Kent Julian. That's because it was Kent and his Speak It Forward Boot Camp that helped me identify my speaking vision that ultimately became the public speaking component of my company. Kent helped me identify my Speaker ID, my branding, and my distinct message. With that personal insight plus the marketing strategies Kent teaches, I booked my first paid speaking engagement within a matter of months and started a full pipeline of scheduled speeches. If you are thinking about adding professional speaking to your career portfolio, there is no better place to start than where I did at Kent Julian's Speak It Forward Boot Camp.

In the 9 months since attending Kent Julian's Speak It Forward Boot Camp, I have created an incredibly strong brand, developed a very clear message, and have been hired for my first paid speaking engagement -- WOOHOO! And I was able to do this while working full time and being a mom to four kids. If you are considering Kent’s Speak It Forward Boot Camp, get off your butt and GO!

I spoke last month in Texas. Today I shared the stage with the Ole Miss Athletic Director Ross Bjork and Ole Miss Basketball legend Keith Carter. I have two more speaking engagements in May, training later on in West Virginia, and another speaking engagement in June at the Biltmore Estate! All of this is happening because of the techniques I learned at the Speak It Forward Boot Camp like showcasing, reserve interviewing, and the Revolving Door Marketing strategy. Thanks a ton, Kent. This is fun!

Since attending the Speak It Forward Boot Camp, I’ve been contracted for FIVE speaking engagements during March and April. WoooooHoooooo! I am very thankful for the opportunities that have been afforded to me. I am definitely not saying I know exactly what I am doing (I’m using the just-get-moving ideas Kent speaks about so passionately when he teaches on marketing), but thanks to Kent and the Speak It Forward Boot Camp, I think I am on the right track. :)

Shout Out – Frances Lucas
The Speak It Forward Boot Camp was my first boot camp experience and it was as intense as a boot camp should be. Other conferences are more broad with little information. This boot camp, however, focused exclusively on speakers.There are times when we think we want to wait for the right moment to do something in our lives. Guess what? If you want to be a speaker, that moment is now. Go to the Speak It Forward Boot Camp. Go now! Don't put it off another day. It is so worth it!
Shout Out – Karen Rowland
Kent Julian is approachable, wise, and humble. He doesn’t try to make it look like he is more successful than he really is. He shares what he has learned over the years and is very transparent. He doesn’t hold anything back from the struggles he has faced to the secrets to how to does everything he does -- he is that transparent! At the end of the day, this conference definitely gave me every possible tool I need to start my speaking business.
Shout Out – Don Roulo
There is no other event that will give you as much information to be an effective, successful, profitable speaker. The golden nuggets of how to craft and hone your message are an investment that will bring you returns for years to come! No one will share what is working and what has not worked as well as Kent. He is so transparent...he holds NOTHING back!
Shout Out – Lucy Shockney
How comprehensive it was? No fluff or redundancy! The openness and sharing of Kent’s life and business gave us an inside look at what he is living. What can I say -- run, don’t walk to this conference! It’s absolutely the best personal investment you can make and it’s a superb value for the money!
Shout Out – Kelly Black
Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the speaking business. Concise, fast paced, focused. No fluff! Best management of participants I have ever seen. Not sure how Kent managed the perfect balance of content, fun, and humor, but he truly did. Have never seen training done this well. Facility, refreshments and breaks (length and frequency) were best I have experienced at any events. Kent is really good at this! If you want to be a speaker, you gotta get to the Speak It Forward Boot Camp!

Kent Julian’s content was developed from experience and presented with specific examples. It was very different from those who simply present academic material without the personal sweat to back it up. Do whatever it takes to get to the Speak It Forward Boot Camp because it is an investment in both yourself and your business! With the quality content presented in a setting that is conducive to broadening your professional network, this value-added experience simply cannot be obtained elsewhere.

I LOVE Kent Julian’s transparency. Other conferences "hide" or "hold back" information for their "bonus" or extra workshops, but the Speak It Forward Boot Camp gives you all the facts! Kent truly wants you to succeed and offers an incredible amount of practical, useful information for your speaking career. Are you just starting out or well-established as a speaker? It doesn’t matter...the Speak It Forward Boot Camp gives you what you need to succeed.
Shout Out – Jeff Jones
Kent has a teacher’s heart and is passionate to help people. I was prepared to learn a lot when I came to the Speak It Forward Boot Camp, but I was not prepared for how much I got. It FAR EXCEEDED my expectations! I got clarity on my niche market and my message. I was not expecting all of that to be so clear, but Kent really has a gift for breaking what he teaches down into nuggets that are easy to process. I’m proud to say that I came away with a renewed clarity and vision for the future regarding both my speaking career and my life.

What I loved most about the Speak It Forward Boot Camp is Kent’s willingness to share all the secrets he has learned over his years of experience.

Hearing how Kent has personally used the principles he teaches and the steps he has taken to build his speaking career was the best part of the conference. He boiled down everything that took him years to learn and gave it to us in a very tight, easy-to-understand, 3-day package. If you are interested in public speaking for profit, GO TO THIS BOOT CAMP! You will learn how to discover your message, how to deliver a killer presentation, how to brand yourself uniquely, and how to market yourself to your niche. Thanks Kent for serving us the way you did...you have WAY OVER DELIVERED on your promise!
Shout Out – Jana Snyder
I received more practical information in this 3-day Boot Camp than what I have learned in most graduate-level, semester-long classes. The level of expertise of the three presenters was excellent, and they really did fulfill their promise of over delivering in content, approachability, support, and most importantly, integrity.
Shout Out – Rob Clinton
The entire event was incredible. From the "COMPASS," to the marketing, to how to actually turn speaking into revenue. Kent and his team were amazing. I'll be back!
Shout Out – Tony Guthrie
Great, specific, detailed information! Better than ALL THE OTHER SPEAKING CONFERENCES I have attended (including three very popular ones that I won't name here). I have paid significantly more to attend those conferences, and they do not hold a candle to this Boot Camp. Kent is passionate, he truly cares about attendees, and he wants to see you succeed. Plus, he and his team are available to attendees and give significant time to one-on-one interaction. You don't get this kind of personal investment at most conferences. Thanks for an awesome experience!
Shout Out – Noreen Hansen
This Boot Camp was definitely worth the investment many times over. The information provided, as well as shared among the group, was priceless. The material is very well organized and developed, the information can be put into practice immediately, and the environment was caring and supportive. Thank you to Kent and his team!
Shout Out – Rex Eaton
The Boot Camp delivered WAY BEYOND what I expected. Kent not only delivers what he promises, he is sincere, authentic, and has a servant's heart. Plus, the added opportunity to talk personally with all the presenters was a tremendous bonus. Personal consultation for free‚ what a deal!
Shout Out – Derek Sisterhen
This is a great program to help you get your "speaker bearings" straight. The "COMPASS" is a solid tool for connecting one's desire to speak with an action plan for making it happen. Likewise, the marketing training is great for those just beginning to reach out for speaking engagements. For those who have already been doing some speaking, the discussion on products and back-of-the-room sales is extremely solid.
Shout Out – Theresa Burrough
I came to the Speak It Forward Boot Camp to get a better understanding of the business side of speaking.

Kent's Boot Camp is worth so much more than the price of admission!
Shout Out – Rick Caron

I was at this speaking thing for five years before I added Kent's incredible insight and instructions to my life. Simply stated, he pushed me over the top! I'm at a totally new level now. And YES, I will continue to follow his advice. He does it first; then teaches it. How unusual is that!!!
