Where thought-leaders become
must-have speakers

Surround yourself with leaders who
take their speaking seriously

There comes a point in your career where you realise your speaking abilities have untapped potential and that you need to take action to unlock it.

You're being asked to speak at conferences and events, and you're building a good reputation for yourself, but there's a nagging feeling that you could be doing more. Reaching more people, making a bigger impact and maybe even getting paid for it.

That's where MicDrop comes in.

We are a community of like-minded individuals who are all on the same journey as you. Whether you're a leader within a business, a founder of a startup, or a thought leader looking to land more speaking engagements or grow your speaking business, we are here to help you take it to the next level.

Our Open Mics provide a fun and supportive environment for members to practice their skills and get real-time feedback. Our Masterclasses bring in carefully chosen experts to share their knowledge and help members level up their speaking game. And our knowledge base offers access to world-class training and resources at your fingertips; from managing nerves to landing high-profile speaking engagements.

But the real magic of MicDrop is in our community. We have a wealth of knowledge between us that will enable you to grow faster and feel supported whilst you do it.

So if you're ready to unlock that untapped potential, come join us at MicDrop. We'll be with you every step of the way.

'The community feeling is instant! Alex's style makes you feel like you're learning with friends so I don't feel intimidated to have a go and the resources are exactly what I was looking for. Genuinely couldn't have asked for anything better for what I need.'

Amelia Ashton-Jones, Director, Sail GP

Our Mission

Impact 🎀

Great speakers always put their audience's needs before their own. Standing on stage and telling your life story or talking about your business isn't enough.

That's why we focus on helping you position yourself and deliver your message in a way that truly resonates with your audience. It's about connecting with them, inspiring them and leaving a lasting impact.

Land 🎯

Landing speaking opportunities is an art in itself. From identifying the right events to crafting the perfect pitch, it can be a challenging process.

But with us, you'll have the tools and support to master it. We keep an ear to the ground for speaking opportunities at some of the most recognised conferences around and we'll be there to celebrate with you when you land them.

Elevate πŸš€

It can be daunting to put yourself out there, but therein lies the power of this community. We understand that confidence is a work in progress and as we grow more successful, it can be even more challenging to maintain.

So no matter where you're at in your speaking journey, or how rough around the edges you may feel, we are a community of supportive and encouraging individuals who will champion you in your speaking journey.

Profit πŸ’°

The speaking industry is notoriously secretive when it comes to growing a speaking business.

Some of our members are looking to build an income from speaking. If that's you, rest assured that we are more than happy to talk about money. Whether you're unsure about whether to charge, what to charge or how to negotiate your fee, we will help you optimise your offerings.

Together, we will go further, faster.

Oh, and me!

I'm Alex. When people find out I'm a public speaking coach, they tend to make two assumptions. Firstly, I must love public speaking and secondly, I must come from some sort of performing background.

Neither of these is true...

I used to be the COO of a London start-up and have never sought the spotlight! Public speaking isn't something that comes naturally to me. I learned how to present well because, like many of our members, I didn't have a choice.

This path has been critical to my success as a coach.

It's taught me that what you say matters as much as how you say it, and that anyone can look confident, but feeling confident is what really matters.

But most importantly of all, it's taught me that impactful presentations magnify your ability to affect change.

Learning how to deliver high-stakes presentations helped me grow my previous business from 4-250 people. As the curator of TEDxClapham, I saw that one, short presentation could go on to have a monumental impact. Talks I've worked on have gone on to change government legislation, attract 8-figure investments and create life-changing opportunities for the speakers themselves.

This is exactly why I created MicDrop. I'll be hosting Open Mics, Ask Me Anythings, and several workshops each year. By becoming a member you get direct access to me and you will receive the same kind of support that my coaching clients get but at a fraction of the cost.

And I can't wait to give it, because when all is said and done,
I'm on the very same journey as you!


'I can't endorse MicDrop strongly enough. It's a really safe space to practice, learn, and be supported.'

FAQs

I'm interested in joining MicDrop, but I'm not sure if I'm ready. What should I do?
We know that this can be intimidating, but that is exactly why we are here. Our culture is non-judgmental and completely focused on helping you grow. More important than where you are right now, is where you want to get to. Whether you're new to speaking or a seasoned pro, you'll find plenty of support, encouragement, and constructive feedback to help you take your skills to the next level.

What makes MicDrop different from other public speaking clubs?
Most public speaking clubs are focused on giving members the confidence to start speaking. MicDrop is focused on helping those who are already being asked to speak at conferences and events. Secondly, we believe that speakers are far more magnetic when they own their quirks. We've all seen those speakers who are so polished, you can't connect with them. What we will do is help you feel comfortable in your own skin on stage, even when the pressure is on.

Who is the club designed for?

Our members are a mixture of entrepreneurs, leaders within organisations and professional speakers who want to:
βœ”οΈ Use speaking to benefit others above themselves
βœ”οΈ Improve their confidence and their craft
βœ”οΈ Land more speaking engagements
βœ”οΈ Generate an income through keynote speaking

If one or more of the above applies to you, you’re in the right place.

How much public speaking experience do I need?
Our members range from those who are just starting out to those who have agents and get paid to speak.


Can MicDrop help me build a speaking business?
Yes! In fact, we are doing a lot of work on this right now, with initiatives like The MicDrop Open Speaker Fee Project designed to help you work out exactly how to optimise your offerings.

What if I'm not interested in building a speaking business?
That's okay! Our knowledge base offers training for improving all areas of your public speaking skills, from building stage confidence to humanising data and managing your nerves to landing big-stage presentations. We also have a wealth of knowledge among our current members, which means that if you've got a burning question you need answering, you can throw it out to us!

When do the Open Mics take place?
Mondays from 5-6pm and 2 x Fridays a month from 1-2pm (UK time). Ideally, you'd be able to attend at least one session a month.

Can I join MicDrop at any time?

Yes! You can join whenever is right for you.

Is there a refund policy?
Yes, we will have a full money-back policy within 14 days of purchasing membership. It’s really important to us that each of our members gets
value from being part of the club.
