You’re ready - NOW - to be an UNapologetic speaker who delivers an UNprecedented and UNforgettable SPEAKING EXPERIENCE!
Keynote | Signature | TED | Workshop | Pitch | Stage Experience
So, you want to be a speaker? (The trap you’re falling into)
There are many speaker coaches out there who will sell you on the idea that they will make you a great speaker, and as a result you will get booked and paid to speak.
UNfortunately, this is one of the biggest speaking industry lies.
The UNapologetic Truth
If you want to be hired as a professional speaker (one who gets paid) there are a number of pieces you must have in place to let meeting planners and event coordinators know that you are their best choice.
Some of those pieces include:
A brand platform and positioning that speaks to planners and influencers in your industry
A website with a speaking page that is strategically branded for you as a professional speaker
Media one-sheet and professional speaker kit/epk
A speaker bio (there are at least 3 kinds of bios you need to have ready)
Speaker headshot and speaking shots
Social media accounts that are optimized for a professional speaker
A social media strategy that attracts speaking opportunities, loyal followers, and paying coaching/consulting clients
A speaker trailer/sizzle reel (it doesn’t have to break the bank, and is easier to complete than you may think)
A book or other published works that position you as an expert
Your story and idea worth spreading (that you can share in a few sentences)
What clients and leaders are saying about Davide…
Davide’s Being Unapologetic is a fresh look at being extraordinary, standing out by being who you are, and finding confidence in the small wins in life. He describes the process of ‘celebrating breadcrumbs in your life,’ and it is such a great description of what it takes to shine in a world that is so crowded with social media, likes, and selfies. I think deciding to be unapologetic is the only way to go if you want to make meaning in your creative life. A great book for great minds.
Azul Terronez, Author of The Art of Apprenticeship, TEDx Speaker
Davide is an amazing speaker and coach who truly cares about helping others and his ideas will make a positive difference in your life!

Few people have figured out how to create their own destinies and go for it like Davide Di Giorgio. As a teacher, accomplished professional speaker, and one of my favorite human beings, Davide Di Giorgio has much to teach all of us.
Patrick Snow, International Speaker and Multi Best-Selling Author
Davide Di Giorgio charts a path others can follow to find their voices and deliver their messages in an authentic and impactful way. Davide asks only that you unabashedly and unapologetically communicate to those who need your message the most.
Brian Tracy, International Motivational Speaker and Author of Seventy-Plus Self-Development Books
Davide is not just a speaking coach. Though he will happily and effortlessly punch up your speech, whether a speaker introduction or a keynote address, his coaching expertise extends far beyond the realm of speaking. Davide radically coached me to better my speaking through guiding me to discover my inner power. When I tapped into that inner power, I wasn’t just onstage. I was owning the stage.
Nick Taylor - Speaker
Davide is an incredibly gifted and passionate motivational speaker who has an unparalleled gift for breaking down the art of public speaking and making it accessible to everyone. He was able to gain instant rapport with our team through his authenticity, sense of humor, and colorful storytelling. After Davide's talk, the team's initial fear of public speaking was replaced by sheer enthusiasm and an excitement to unapologetically share their message. We walked away with so many invaluable tools on how to communicate more effectively and powerfully. I would highly recommend Davide to any organization that is looking to up-level their team's communication and presentation skills. We have already seen a drastic improvement in the confidence and clarity in which our employees now deliver content in a group setting!
Lisa Shields - People and Culture Director, Organifi LLC
Davide is the coach you want to have by your side. He has a unique way of discovering your talents, and helping you bring them to light. He is compassionate and still provides a structured approach. I know there are lots of people out there saying they can help you but you never even speak to them. Davide is the real deal, he is the one that works with you and he challenges you to do the work. I feel my message is so clear now. I know for sure, I would not have clarity if it was not for him. Don't waste money on a program that is a video, invest in being coached by the true speaking coach genius, Davide Di Giorgio.
Barbara Hoard - Speaker, Director: A Prom To Remember
Davide brings a level of heart and intellect to his work that makes the process of writing, performing, and ideating a true joy. I started with having a loose idea of why I wanted to be a speaker, and Davide helped extract my passion from the depths of my soul to bring forth a compelling and inspiring message that I felt I must share with the world. Davide takes this work seriously - and the results show it. Not only did he help me craft an incredible talk, but I got to know myself more in the process. I highly recommend Davide to anyone looking for a powerful coach in the speaking world!
Kyla Sokoll-Ward - Transformational Speaker
I was incredibly impressed working with Davide, and my 1:1 sessions with him were truly transformative. Through his work, I gained clarity, unbelievable confidence, and a sense of calm to quell nerves during high pressure speaking situations. After working with him, my sales pipeline grew tremendously, and l felt far more comfortable speaking publicly or with high caliber audiences.
Christine J. Torres - Head of Chicago | WiredScore
Writing an adequate review of David's work is a near impossible task, even for a poet. From moment one of my Ted talk prep with him, I felt completely supported and 'gotten', and his feedback on my drafts was incisive, honest, generous, and in service of taking my speaking capacities to the next level. He helped me trust my offering while also pushing me to be smarter and better in how I delivered it. I am forever a better speaker from just a few hours with him. He is a true gem, and will help you shine way brighter as well!

Our company recently hired Serious Take Productions to shoot a Branding Trailer for our firm, and it was highly recommended that we contract with Davide Di Giorgio to help in crafting our story and helping us relay our message with style and finesse.
Davide is a masterful writer and brilliant story teller, who was able to take my husband’s early days growing up in North Dakota, and his love for drawing, and bridge that with his current passion for architecture and design. Davide is also a fabulous person with a great heart, who truly cares for his clients and loves to see them succeed.
We highly recommend Davide, and we feel that hiring him made a huge impact on the success of our production.
Bodie Campagna - Vice President, Mitchell J. Architecture
I have been a mediator, trainer, coach, and teacher for 6 years. I have talked on stages and in front of hundreds of groups. When I started working with Davide, I instantly became more connected to myself, my material, and my vision.
I realized that speaking is not a formula that you can just follow for each speech. Davide dropped the cookie cutter success formula others have sold me, leading me into my vision and heart. I was so distracted and focused on what everyone else was doing in their talks, but in reality, I had incredible stories and experiences in me that Davide strategically pulled out.
Whether you are an experienced speaker or someone just starting out, you must talk to Davide. He will support you in creating, not just a talk, but an experience for the audience where they will be moved to take action.
Carson Cooper - Speaker, Leadership Development Coach
Recently I was blessed to work with Davide to prepare for my first major public speaking engagement; a TEDx event. I usually just speak from my heart with no script, however, on Davide's gentle persuasion I broke my mold and created a narrative to use. We worked together to craft this in a way to powerfully convey my message without losing my authentic self. By preparing with Davide ahead of time we were able to ensure I produced a performance that was not just great but incredible. With his theatrical background when it came to dress-rehearsal he was able to share some crucial pointers about stage presence and connecting with the whole audience. So despite me being unusually nervous on the day, my coaching with Davide ensured that I was able to deliver a truly life-changing talk.
If you are looking for someone to help guide you as a public speaker then reach out to Davide. You won't regret it. I am personally looking forward to growing my career in public speaking with Davide as an integral part of my team.

Davide was able to take my talk from a ‘talk’ to an experience - where people didn’t just hear information, they felt emotion.
He packaged my words in a way that I could deliver it so that it had more meaning, more emotion, and therefore, more impact.
Davide is fun, kind - and really good! He sees things that I wasn’t able to see. His eclectic experience that he brought to the table really brought my talk to life.
Great actors have wonderful directors behind them. As speakers, we need the same support. Davide is that person for me!
Jennifer Trask - Mindset & Business Coach
Davide helped me - a seasoned speaker - create a successful speech that converted!
Davide changed my perspective on the way I create and give speeches.
I would invest all this time doing the speech, preparing the speech, traveling...I would give the speech but I would never get any sales out of it.
Even if you’re a seasoned speaker there’s something you could be doing better when it comes to optimizing your talk, increasing your conversion, and attracting more leads.
Working with Davide is a very good investment!
Scott Anderson, Cash Cow Farmer
Davide is brilliant! I was invited to be a guest speaker at a live event and was extremely nervous about it. Since it was my first time on stage, I wanted it to be great. I was struggling with putting together my talk.
In one conversation, Davide helped me create an easy structure for my talk and provided a highly effective introductory hook. The results: many people came up to me and told me that my talk was one of best at the event.
Minling Chuang - Brand Strategist
Before working with Davide, I already had experience with public speaking. I was looking for a coach to stretch me and help me deliver a talk that would bring out the best in me.
Davide did that, and so much more! He got me out of my head and into my heart, which allowed me to speak from a place of true passion. Davide was supportive, committed, and truly cared about my message and myself.
I cannot recommend him enough for anybody wanting to improve as a speaker!
Through his newsletter, videos, and a couple calls, Davide has helped me clarify my message, find my perfect 'title', and is helping me feel confident going back into the speaker scene.
I cannot wait to work with him on taking my signature talk to the next level and to develop my TEDx talk.
My focus is back, gigs are rolling in, and I'm even starting to write a book!
Life is crazy and you are a big part of it, Davide! Thank you!
If you haven't heard of him yet...better go check him out!
Yvonne Heimann - Photopreneur
I absolutely LOVED working with Davide, as he helped me prepare my signature talk for a HUGE event for entrepreneurs. He took me through a step-by-step process to come up with an engaging and motivating presentation.
When I made my offer at the end of my talk, over HALF of the room opted-in, and they couldn't wait to connect with me once I stepped off the stage…
With Davide's guidance, my talk created a wonderful buzz around the audience and on social media, and I am already attracting more high-paying coaching clients because of it!
Amy Yamada - Business Coach
It was wonderful to have a thought partner for ideas, vetting concepts, and narrowing and talking about presentation flow. Davide’s gentleness and kindness came across along with how much he wanted me to succeed—more about my success than his.
Davide's accessibility and encouragement was a big part of getting me outside of my head and into my heart.
Call Davide! He will help you go from speech concept to dynamic presentation with compelling stage presence. He will help you tell the story you want to tell and teach you to entertain your audience.
Theresa Ashby - Executive Consultant
I'm beyond impressed with what Davide brings to the table. He was able to work directly with our speakers for our Ultimate Stage Experience to prep them for their moments on stage, pulling out their main stories and points. And every single speaker/client gave such raving feedback.
What he brings to the table helps catch the audience's attention, makes the points WOW the audience from the start, and flows more cleanly into the strategic points we want to make.
Not only did he WOW our clients, he WOW'd us and I don't say that very often about anybody.
Danielle Desiree Gómez - Serious Take Productions
Davide can help anyone to really stay in alignment with their message and vision while still being seen as an authority trust figure and someone worth buying from or following. He clearly cares about the mission of the speaker.
Davide helped me go far beyond what I thought was possible, and he never made me doubt myself or my message. He always stayed congruent and supportive of it - which means so much to me.
The unique gift of embracing each speaker’s uniqueness rather than form-fitting everyone to an outline allows Davide to create extraordinary results!
Celeste Rains-Turk - Health Coach
I very much appreciated Davide's attention to detail - it made me feel, right off the bat, that each session and the work we were going to do together, mattered.
He met me where I was - sometimes that was in a good place and sometimes that was me feeling anxious - Davide always made me feel like it was ok to be however I was.
Davide provided me a valuable service I didn't even know I needed :-) His authentic, warm, caring and transparent way of being allowed me to really lean into him as a coach. The support exceeded my expectations!
