Pictured: Fall 2018 Boot Camp Participants & most Coaches

"The bootcamp was so inspiring! Not only did Dr. G share personal tips & tricks, she also shared resources. Speakers of all levels were welcomed! If you are an aspiring speaker you should DEFINITELY attend the bootcamp because of the connections made, resources given & personal coaches on site that help guide/critique ideas. After the bootcamp, support is still given! Dr. G stays in close contact with those who’ve attended the camp, sharing more tips and resources— she even does a complimentary call to answer questions and gives feedback! The support is endless!"

"The speaker bootcamp changed my life! Dr. Guillory has changed my life. I have used what I learned over the last year. I am more confident, it gave me more than I needed. I increased my speaker fee from $500 go $3500 and I will be speaking in front of 3,000 people at an upcoming engagement. You need to be there!"

"Who knew a speaker’s bootcamp could render me speechless. I don’t know where to begin...from the atmosphere to fellow speakers, and the coaches, I’m so thankful. I’ve been encouraged, impacted, and challenged to be more vocal about my story as I walk boldly in my identity. I’ve been stretched, I’ve gone beyond my comfort zone, and I’ve been poured into. Thanks Dr. G for your authenticity, your wisdom, and FUN! I’m so blessed to have been given this opportunity to attend your boot camp!"

what are others saying about the speaker bootcamp

This speaking bootcamp stretched me beyond measure and moved me into a space which opened my eyes to the gift God placed inside of me. I am so grateful for each & every coach that took the time out to engage, encourage, and critique our class!

Dr. Guillory inspiring an audience

Dr. Guillory has commanded top dollar for her speaking and has discovered many ways to be compensated for pro bono gigs...but at the end of the day, money isn't number one for her. YES there is money to be made and she has made money. Number one for her is..making a positive impact, connecting at a heart level, and being obedient to what the Lord leads her to share...even if uncomfortable!

Dr. Guillory received her first official speaking engagement request 12 years ago.
