Then the R.A.P.I.D.S. Speaking System is EXACTLY What You Want to Do Next

The R.A.P.I.D. S. Speaking System is an easy to follow framework that exposes the order of development that is most effective for rapid success as a speaker. Following the process moves speakers through the development of their message and all the other necessary steps to becoming a professional speaker.

Many speakers do all the things that are necessary to become successful however they do them in the wrong order. As a result, they do not achieve the results they desire. The R.A.P.I.D.S. Speaking System not only puts things in order but also gives speakers the instruction and guidance they need.

The program and coaching offered by Authentic Speaking U are based on the R.A.P.I.D.S. Speaking System. It was developed by Norma Hollis after two decades of coaching speakers and over a decade operating a speaker bureau. Norma is a creative and inquisitive individual who studied the needs of speakers and created a system that helps speakers, no matter where they are in the process, to develop their career.

At last – easy to follow online classes to guide you through the process to develop your authentic message and become a professional speaker. Our classes take you through the step-by-step process to show you how to use your voice to make a difference in the world.

We offer audios, videos and exercises that you download and work at your own pace. Get reinforcement and questions answered on monthly group coaching calls.

We believe that the most impactful speakers are those who are authentic. Being authentic means having a message that is true to you and delivering it in authentic ways to audiences who are aligned with who you are and what you have to say. We feel that the R.A.P.I.D.S. Speaking System accomplishes this and shaves years off the learning curve of speaker development.
