If you do wish to cancel, please note that we do encourage feedback, as it enables us to improve our services and products to better serve our members.
As a Member of Charli Jane Speakers I understand that I have access to the speaking leads section. Do you determine who the speaker will be?
No, Charli Jane is not the final decision maker. Charli Jane Speakers provides a service, one part of which is that we find leads for our members, leads are called in, researched, or submitted via our online ‘Request a Speaker” form. If you find a lead, it is your responsibility to follow-up on the lead either by submitting your proposal online to the hiring party or sending an email directly to the event organizer.
Once you join the Charli Jane Speaker family you will be directed to the member dashboard where all the goodies are waiting for you. You will find a link to your speaking opportunities in your dashboard.
No, some leads will either be free, small fee or expenses paid. However, we have often seen speaking leads originally posted as no fee gigs converted to fee-based gigs, because the organizer was so happy with the speakers that they offered them a paid opportunity for other events.
Speaking for free is okay and can be an excellent opportunity to gain additional exposure, build your credibility, network, and make an excellent profit if you have products to sell. Keep your mind open and don’t let a wonderful opportunity lay on the table for someone else to come and grab. There are many ways to create opportunities from a free engagement, if you need ideas let Wendi know.
When you join the Charli Jane Speaker club we will add you to our speaker directory. Your web presence on Charli Jane can help generate more speaking engagements, a guest on podcasts, radio/TV interviews, and print opportunities. You also receive excellent credibility and exposure in being part of the Charli Jane speaker community, which has been online and in business since 2002. Our Speakers Directory is searched daily by planners, organizers and media professionals looking for an expert. Please visit our kudos page to learn more about what clients and members are saying. We don’t represent speakers like a traditional agency or bureau, what we do offer you is more visibility and credibility by being in the directory and associated with Charli Jane Speakers.
Of course! We have been designing Speaker Onesheets for years. See our portfolio below. Most Onesheets take 7-10 days and have unlimited revisions.
Wendi, owner of Charli Jane Speakers offers coaching to select speakers who are serious about taking the next step and moving up to the next level in their speaking career. You can learn more here.
In addition, Wendi is available for interviews and speaking events upon request. Please contact her for more information.

Yes of course! We want to get you started and the best way to do that is to get yourself online, get noticed, gain credibility and start building your speaking presence with us. As part of your Membership you’ll receive your personal profile page in our widely searched Speakers Directory.
We encourage you to add your professional, action or personality-infused image, a brief bio, downloadable media kit, OneSheet, topics with short descriptions, audio, a demo video, product links and images, contact info and social media links.
All speakers receive their own customized URL; this makes it easy to direct potential clients to directly to your personal webpage on Charli Jane and to be found easily in the search engines. For example https://charlijane.com/profile-Alfred-Poor

Yes! A perk to adding your speaker information (speaker page) to the Charli Jane Speakers Directory is every speaker gets a page inserted with targeted keywords specific to their niche, topics and knowledge utilizing the popular Yoast SEO tool. We also insert titles and page descriptions that will benefit you in the search engine rankings to make it easier for the hiring party to find you.
