Whitney McDuff helps thought leaders, coaches, and entrepreneurs launch and build their speaking brands.

I'm looking for speakers just like you


  • Sales & Marketing
  • Leadership
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Health & Wellness
  • Human Resources
  • Motivational Stories
  • Your Expertise in how you change peoples lives
Get Started!

You know you have the story, the life-changing experience, or expertise to help others, but have no idea where to begin. You think you don't have the knowledge, don't know the right people, or lack the right tools for success.

This is the biggest mistake thought leaders make, and successful speakers know that. All you need is some guidance, a plan, and some pressure. That's where Whitney comes in.

Your story can change lives, but you have to trust yourself. You have to take action.



Do you have a story, but no idea how to share it?

Frustrated you keep missing opportunities to share your story or expertise?

Need to increase your influence, credibility, and authority?

Want to increase your income AND your impact?
