Our vision

To grow 10% of Small Businesses so they can afford to put on just one extra employee, creating over 200,000 jobs, and internships for others to get the experience they need to get contract work.

Build your tribe

If you want to get paid as a professional speaker talking to a full house, first, you must be able to fill a small room.

This will allow you to build your expertise in solving problems and relate to more people, so when you move up to the big house your talks will be more engaging for your audience.

Simon Sinek’s talk that propelled him to the big stage was done to a room of less than 50 people.

Speaker topics

We are looking for experts in marketing, HR, business operations, and leadership to record videos outlining the performance expectations of Small Business owners.

It's not just about competency, it's about proficiency.

What do the business owner want employees to do, what are the businesses prepare to pay for, and what would business pay extra for?

Sound like you?

Sign up below to the specific thing you would like to talk about from the topics below. You can expand each topic if you want to see more specific information we need, and your talk may cover parts of many topics.

We are not looking for people who can talk about "anything", or can "also talk about" other things.

What is the one thing you want to be known for? That is what we are going to refer people to book you to talk about. It may only be part of one topic, and it may cross over into other topics too.


To start out, we are looking for people who can do speaking events in Brisbane as that is were the events will be filmed, but we'll show you the setup so you can do your own videos and provide the footage we need to edit. It is a low budget system using mobile phones so a cost effective solution for speakers just starting out too.

We want it to be a collaborative effort. In business, no one can survive on their own.
Tell us what you want to talk about
Inception - the establishment or starting point of an institution or activity. Just getting it out of your head is the first step to making it real. It doesn't have to make sense to anyone else but you.
