Ready to move at lightning speed to become a professional speaker?

Tired of the confusion and just want to cut through all the fluff and get a step-by-step process to take you from start to success?

Need to add power to your message and style so that audiences always remember you and want to rebook you?

Wondering how many ways you can make money as a speaker and which are best for you?
Want to shave 3 – 5 years off your speaker development learning curve?

You have come to the right place!
Authentic Speaking U was designed just for you, a new or emerging speaker with an important message to share.

I’m a pioneering veteran of the speaking industry with a gift of seeing what is missing for people and filling that gap. I’ve done this many times by developing programs to fit missing links, like when I was the first woman to own a speaker bureau for speakers of color. This led to multiple bureaus featuring speakers of color and is why many refer to me as an icon in the speaking industry.

That’s why I developed Authentic Speaking U. There was a gap in the industry. Everywhere I looked speaker trainers were selling parts of the success puzzle rather than the entire path. And a lot of speakers were simply mimicking other successful speakers rather than being their authentic self.

Real success as a speaker is about being true to your unique passion, experience and expertise, and allowing your authentic voice to shine. And success comes from following the path that’s right for you. It’s what sets you apart from every other speaker and highlights your individuality.

My guess is that you want a direct path to success. And you want it now rather than, later don’t you? Your accelerated path to success starts TODAY!

  • Remove the confusion and know exactly what to do next to build your career
  • Get clarity on the most impactful message that represents your passion, experience and expertise
  • Find the speaking style that best suits you.
  • Get on the fast track to success with one-on-one coaching.

To determine the right coaching program for you, answer these questions:

  1. Are you a Do-It-Yourselfer? You want a personal road-map of what to do or need customized advice on specific elements of your development.
    Consider the Authentic Voice Review, a 90-minute consultation.
  1. Do you want someone to hold your hand discuss ideas, and give you direction while you move forward?

        You want the 6-month Coaching Engagement.

You can discuss any of these programs with Norma, prior to enrollment. Complete the application to apply for a complimentary 30-minute one-on-one discovery session with Norma.

“I received one-on-one counseling from Norma Thompson Hollis and it was the best investment I could have made for my speaking career. During our session, she provided me with a road-map for success by giving me direction and a clear plan. We mapped out years 1-5 of my speaking career based on my goals and potential. Not only was she strategic and a visionary, she was compassionate and caring. I was not treated like just another speaker by her or those who are employed by her agency. Her advice was based on my unique set of circumstances and needs. I would have spent years of trial & error trying to figure out what was revealed to me in only one hour! I am now confident and sure about my success. I would recommend this counseling to anyone who wants to take their speaking career to the next level.”

-Kimberly Clark Menchion, Esq., Tallahassee, Florida

“Hi Norma, I’m writing a few lines to say thank you for the advice. After having a one-on-one phone consultation with you last year, I have reached some major positive milestones in my speaking career. I took your advice… it enhanced my level of professionalism. I went from having no product to having four products packaged for sale. My next step is to market my products online with my 10,000 person database. Thanks again for your encouragement. Have A Great Day!”

-Tracy J. Brown, CEO/Urban Awareness USA

We only spoke once, on the phone, but our coaching session was of enormous benefit.”

-Dr. Dan, Empowering People for Better Lives

"Thanks for the 20 minutes of insight you shared with me. I was amazed at how quickly you were able to give me direction.”

-Greg Franklin, Author, Sales Consultant, Keynote Speaker

"Let me tell you about Norma Hollis. She is my coach and is helping me reach heights I have never seen before, resulting in me attracting more clients through her authentic coaching approach. If you are looking for you voice, if you are trying to tap into what it is in you that you can share with other people, you have to work with Norma Hollis.”

-J. Eldridge Taylor, The J. Eldridge Taylor Company

Thanks to Norma Hollis, I am experiencing an unprecedented level of success as a result of my appearance on The Apprentice. I knew I had momentum and a chance to maximize my celebrity’ status, but I didn’t know how to do it. I turned to Norma for coaching and direction. Norma helped me in numerous ways and ultimately, was a guiding light to my speaking career. She not only provided excellent advice about creating a successful speaking platform, she made sure that my ‘authentic’ voice was evident in my presentations. By utilizing the concepts of authenticity that Norma taught me, I have been able to share the ‘real’ Omarosa with the world and experience ongoing success as a professional speaker. Norma helped me turn 15 minutes of fame into a speaking empire!”
