Keynote Development

Maybe you have already written a bestseller and are racking up the speaking events! However, your keynote feels like it isn’t everything it could be and you need some support outlining those actionable takeaways that turn your story into something interesting people want to hear, to the transformation people with PAY to hear!


Includes three 90-minute live one-on-one coaching sessions to:

  • captivate the essence of your message and produce three actionable takeaways

  • connect your message to your brand in order to build a platform from which you can create a lot more work!

  • a crash course in marketing yourself as a professional speaker on social media to book more work

Maybe you already have your book outlined or you have a killer keynote in development. Your message is clear, but the quickest path to your audience is NOT.

You know what to say, how to say it, and who you want to say it to (you THINK!): It’s just how to get their attention that is keeping you from your fullest success and potential.

I offer three-month strategy packages where I offer you the opportunity to access my brain! Think of me as a life coach for your writing and speaking career- after publishing a NYT Bestseller and working as a professional speaker for the last decade, I have learned the ins and outs, the do’s and don’ts and I can help you level up.

"Sometimes the Universe puts someone on your path without you even knowing you need them in your life. That has been my experience with Jess Buchanan. Jess has an uncanny ability to listen to what you tell her, your surface story as it were, and pinpoint the moments where there is much more buried under the surface, perhaps even from you. She asks probing but gentle questions; she works actively with you to develop your deeper story beyond a compelling narrative by providing your audience with clear, key takeaways, whether they can directly relate to your story or not. 


Jess is generous with her time, her energy and her understanding of what it takes to build and grow a business from your content. It’s easy to completely forget the experiences she has had because she spends no time reminding you of her harrowing survival or of her now high-powered career. Rather, she invests wholly in you and your needs. She is present, she is engaged and, perhaps my favorite thing, she is comfortable in silence. Jess creates beautiful, gentle space for you to lean in to the hard moments of emotional searching that come with work like this. The clock doesn’t feel like it’s ticking when you spend time with Jess, and that freedom allows you the time you need to explore, discover and uncover all that you have to share about your own journey."
