Applications for DEBx May 2020 are now being accepted!


What do you get from participating in the DEBx Speaker Training Program?

  • You will be trained via three full-day group sessions, practice sessions, a dress rehearsal, and personalized one-on-one coaching by a speaker adviser with over a dozen years experience working with some of the top speakers in the nation. This will give you all the tools you need to develop powerful and compelling Talks over and over.
  • You will deliver your message to an anticipated audience of 400+ attendees on an extraordinary stage – one that even the most senior speakers never get a chance to experience.
  • The event will be professionally photographed and videotaped, giving you access (at a significantly discounted rate) to a Speaker Video, the most essential tool needed as an emerging speaker.

What is expected of you if you are selected?

  • Pay a one-time up-front fee of $495.00
  • Sell 25 tickets at $30.00 per ticket to your adoring friends, family members and co-workers so they can be there to cheer you on.
  • Attend all training sessions, dress rehearsal and complete assignments as designated.
