Course 4

Speaking in public is an art, dependent on elements like tone and pace. You may be able to write a fabulous ceremony, but if your presentation skills are lacking, they are just words on a page. We cover the basic principles of effective public speaking, and how to apply them in front of a crowd. Mastering these skills make you memorable, and are key to getting 5-star reviews and client referrals!

Course 5

Become a great business owner by learning best practices for scheduling, time management, filing systems, keeping tax records, preparing contracts, selecting fees and making sales. This course goes DEEP into providing the best customer journey for your couples. Once complete, the backend of your business will be in tip-top shape and you will have a workbook packed with everything you need for sustainable success.

Course 6

In the world of “Google-trained” Officiants, how do you stand out? This course explains all the ways Celebrants can get new business through online marketing, AND help you make the most of traditional, in-person opportunities as well. We help you set realistic and trackable goals; discover new tools that work best for celebrants, and get more comfortable with thoughtful self-promotion, networking and  social media!
