Let me tell you more

Public speaking has absolutely changed my life and when you learn to truly be effective at it and leverage your skills, it will change your life too. Regardless if you are a seasoned entrepreneur, an influential business mind, a dedicated educator, a top sales person, a driven politician or just someone dedicated to doing good in the world, effective public speaking and communication skills absolutely put you in a class all by yourself.

Think about the people you admire the most. Think about the people who make the biggest impact. They use public speaking to drive home their message and move people to action.

Arel Moodie speaking

I have spoken at some of the toughest schools. I've had teachers tell me before I speak "Good luck! This group is terrible and can't pay attention". These are some of my favorite groups to speak to. Whether it's the inner city or rural America, I heard the same thing. And I loved it because in one hour, I was able to take a group of kids who wanted NOTHING to do with me, and by the end of it, they were high fiving, listening and enjoying school! How cool is that?!?

As the years went on and my business started developing, I started getting opportunities to speak on other stages in bigger niches, and I wondered if I could do it? Could I speak to businesses, high profile entrepreneurs, government groups? At that time, most of my speaking experience was with students.

But it turns out, that my background speaking to students was my greatest professional gift. As I started speaking to seasoned business owners, government officials and others, I realized the ability to layer great content on top of an attention grabbing speaker style was key. 

Some people focus just on great content but are as exciting as plain toast. Others are all rah-rah with no content.

A speaker who can blend the two is rare. These are the people dominating their niche, and these are the people who are in-demand, right? 

Well, yes and no... Knowing how to deliver an incredible message in an authentic and entertaining way is important, but you also need to be able to systematically know how to get booked for speaking events. 

Let me explain... 

When I first started my career, I was absolutely frustrated. 

I grew up in the projects in Brooklyn, NY on welfare. I didn't have a network. I started my first online real estate focused business. After growing that startup, I started speaking and I thought I was a good presenter but I knew I could get better. I saw these other people getting booked way more than me and I thought to myself "I know I can do this, I just don't know how". 

I had a lot to learn about not just what makes a presenter good, but how to become a transformational speaker. Someone who can get booked and move people to action. 

I learned from top entrepreneurs and spent years (over a decade now) studying the best presenters and honing my craft in the real world, giving tons of presentions all over the country in various niches.

Over 1,000 professional presentations later...

Over 500,000 people impacted...

Multi-millions of dollars in revenue generated...

Spoken in 48 states and 5 countries...

What was fascinating though, is that after my speaking engagements I would get 2 questions the most. 

-How do I become a great presenter? 

-How do I become a professional speaker? 

The truth is, I wished I had a book or an event to send people to. But there wasn't one book or one event that I felt explained the whole process well. 

I was always so busy speaking that I didn't have the time to teach people.  

However, I had an ephiphany when my first son was born. I held him in my arms and asked myself a very, VERY important question... 

"What am I building?"

Moodie Family

My family

I realized to create a future that would be worthwhile for my kids, I had to impact more people. I had to impact more than just the people within the crowds of my speaking engagements. 

What if I could impact the impacters? What if I could empower people who had knoweldge and skill sets I just did not possess. What if I could layer what I learned about impacting people through the art and business of speaking on top of their unique gifts and talents? 

That my friend, is what lead to the creation of this unique event, The True Speaking Success Summit.

150% Money-Back-Guarantee

Attend the first day, and if you don't feel like you've gotten more than what you could have imagined, if you feel like if after Day 1 alone you don't have enought actionable content to revolutionize your speaking business, you can ask for a full refund and you'll get it with no trouble at all. Not only will you get your money back, I'll pay you 50% above what you paid for your ticket price for wasting your time. If the content is not that mind-blowing to you, I'm wasting your most precious resource, your time. And I'll give you your money back and then some.

I can offer this because I've been to a ton of trainings and most of them stink. The True Speaking Success Summit is uniquely different in its approach, philosophies and strategies. This experience will blow your mind, guaranteed. Our money is where our mouth is.

 Think About It This Way...

What if you come to this event and you are only able to get just one speaking engagement from it. Let's say you invest in attending the True Speaking Success Summit and because of it you are only able to get one highly paid speaking engagement for thousands of dollars. What would it be worth to you to make it down for the event? 

Now to be 100% transparent, I can't promise that you will do this. I have no idea who you are, what you talk about, how dedicated you are, your work ethic or anything like that, so I don't want you to think I'm blindly promising you this result. Results are not typical because most people don't work. 

What if you got just one speaking engagement at $2,500? Would an ROI like that be worth it. What if you got 10 or 20 or even more? What if you only got one extra speaking engagement this year, and you did it again next year, and the year after that? Would it be a worthwhile investment?

What if you learn exactly what you need to create that wow presentation for you next big event? Would that be worth your time to have this strategy at your disposal year after year?

Of course it would. There are few investments that could pay that kind of ROI. The investment in yourself is always the best you can make. One simple idea from this event could easily lead you to getting a speaking engagement. And you will get so many ideas from this TSS Summit!

Isn't it time you step out of the stands and got onto the court to play this game? No more passively watching, it's time to take action!


Engage with industry thought leaders who will transform the way you think about your professional speaking career.

Attending the True Speaking Success Summit was an eye-opening experience for me. Not only did I learn marketing, sales, and how to put together incredible presentations, but I discovered a simple mindset shift that has activated my productivity and killed my procrastination habits. Not to mention I’m booking speaking engagements at colleges, and the principles I’ve learned helped me close a 5 figure speaking contract.

Within two months of attending the True Speaking Success Summit I was able to book my first ever College speaking engagement! This was just the kick in the pants I needed to get my speaking career off the grand. The content and support is incredible. This is THE event you need to attend to get your speaking career going in the right direction!

I can not say enough good things about the True Speaking Success Summit. I was able to get clarity on my message, my unique brand, and what message is best of me to share with the world. I'm so excited to finally have clarity on what next steps to take! Arel and his content is everything you could want and more. I was even able to deliver a speaking engagement within two months of the TSS Summit and I knew exactly what to do at the event to maximize the experience and I don't event have a website...yet :) Thank you Arel!

-Andrea Ashcraft

I have spoken on some big stages but had speaking engagements coming in here and there. I wanted to get a more steady flow. After attending the True Speaking Success Summit, I finally had a plan of action THAT ACTUALLY WORKS. I was immediately able to book multiple speaking engagements by using Arel's "Get in front of the deciscion maker's" plan
