People are naturally attracted to leaders.

Public speaking is a clear demonstration of leadership.

  1. Have you dreamed of being on stage, staring out at a huge crowd, and the entire audience is on their feet, enthusiastically clapping for the speech you just delivered?

  2. Or maybe instead of physical stages, you want to record videos, live broadcasts, webinars and online summits that everyone in your industry raves about?

  3. Do you see other people growing their business and climbing the corporate ladder with public speaking, but you think, “How nice for them. I’ll never pull that off”?

Since the beginning of time, human beings have been captivated by stories. It’s our favorite way to learn just about anything.

Whether you’re selling coaching and consulting services, digital products and programs, or even raising money for your favorite non-profit, you are telling a story.

So, let’s get honest: On a scale of 1 to 10, how strong are your storytelling skills?
Do you have an easy-to-remember collection of stories that establish you as an authority that can be trusted and invested in?


Do you know how to calmly and confidently establish influence with an audience of people who have no idea who you are?

Has anyone ever taught you how to implement The Stage Effect?

If your answer to any of these questions is ‘no’, this is your invitation to change that, at the Business Freedom Speaking Academy.




The Business Freedom Speaking Academy is a 5-day presentation skills training intensive that will teach you how to become a highly successful speaker.


In an intimate teaching environment, international entrepreneur Eric Edmeades will show you how he overcame a paralyzing fear of public speaking to become an internationally renowned speaker, sharing the stage with Anthony Robbins, Sir Richard Branson, President Bill Clinton, Robert Kiyosaki and many others.




Eric Edmeades is a serial entrepreneur who was once so terrified of public speaking that he could barely eat for days before a talk.

Since mastering The Stage Effect, Eric has become an internationally recognized speaker with over 10,000 hours of stage-time, in over 25 countries. He also spent more than a year touring with Anthony Robbins as a guest business speaker on his Business Mastery program.

Beyond all that though, here’s what really makes Eric stand out:

You know those people who are excellent at something, but they struggle to articulate the mechanics of what they’re actually doing, so they can’t successfully teach anyone else their skill? Eric is NOT that guy.

When you come to the Business Freedom Speaking Academy, you’ll get direct access to his ability to clearly express the core concepts, strategies and techniques that have created decades of speaking success for him, and his hundreds of students.

He is not only an impeccable speaker in his own right, but he also has the communication abilities to teach you how to become one also.

How many hours a day is the training?

It varies, but a typical day tends to run from 9am - 10pm (including breaks and meals, of course). We weren’t kidding when we called this an ‘intensive’. Transformation requires presence, focus and hard work. If you show up fully, by the end of the week, your speaking abilities will be radically improved.
