Speaker Training for Experts, Leaders and Entrepreneurs

Be a professional speaker, not just someone who speaks.


Do you want to grow your business, personal brand or thought leadership with speaking or training?  


Do you want to make a greater impact by reaching more people with your knowledge and expertise?


Ever find yourself watching your favorite speakers trying to dissect how they do it so masterfully?


Would you like the confidence of KNOWING you have the ability to consistently deliver a transformational keynote or training, instead of wondering if you were effective?

If this resonates with you,
don't miss the chance to join
The Speakers Intensive on April 20-21,2024
in Mesa, Arizona.

Presented by Isha Cogborn, CEO of Epiphany Institute

Isha Cogborn Media

Two days of in-person speaker coaching & training.
Here's a slice of what you'll learn in this intimate session:

A systematic approach to delivering a transformational message every time.

How to organize your speech for maximum impact using the Platform for Purpose Speech Crafting Framework.

Techniques for platform movement and vocal variety that keep listeners hanging on to your every word.


What you need to know from the meeting/event organizer to satisfy both the audience and the person writing your check. 

A mindset shift to overcome nerves, jitters and overthinking so can focus fully on your audience.

Tips to bounce back like a pro when something goes wrong.

Who should attend?

  • Authors, consultants, subject-matter experts, and thought leaders who want to use speaking and training to grow their businesses.


  • Retired leaders who want to transfer their knowledge and wisdom to the next generation.


  • Speakers who are currently delivering presentations created by others but want to develop their own content.


  • Nonprofit leaders need to be more visible to reach new donors, volunteers, and participants.

Who should NOT attend?

It IS NOT for people looking to overcome a strong fear of public speaking. I highly recommend Toastmasters International if that is your training goal.

It is also not for purely motivational speakers or those who simply want to share their stories. If that’s you, contact me for recommendations for other programs that may fit your needs.


"Isha's process on how to break down and craft a powerful talk was so beneficial. It's not just about speaking. There are so many things you're going to take away relevant to all the other things you're doing in your business."

This is a VERY intimate training session. Each participant will arrive with individual goals and at different stages of development. I will meet you where you are and take you to your next level. To provide such high-quality, individualized instruction, the intensive is limited to four participants.


Your pre-session homework is to develop or repurpose a 10-minute presentation using the Platform for Purpose Speech Crafting Framework.  You will receive training on the Framework via on-demand video webinar, along with the Framework Guide, which can be used every time you develop a presentation.


Our first day together will be a mix of interactive, multimedia instruction, speech delivery and coaching.  Each participant will receive a video of their speech so you can track your progress.


This day is all about your content. We’ll dive into one of your existing presentations, or help you to develop new content based on the Platform for Purpose Speech Crafting Framework. You will walk away with specific actions to focus your presentation on the needs of your audience, while making it more memorable and effective.

You will also learn to handle difficult situations such as tech issues, audience distractions, schedule changes and more like a pro.


You’ll receive a 90-minute private coaching session with Isha to review the updates you made to your keynote/training from the Emerging Speakers Intensive.


We’ll start with a consultation so that I can learn more about your goals to determine if this course is the right step in your development. Click the button below to schedule your call. This is an in-person training, so the sooner we talk, the sooner you’re able to schedule travel, if necessary.

Isha Cogborn Speaker TrainingHi there! I’m Isha Cogborn, founder of Epiphany Institute and the Platform for Purpose program for experts and leaders.

Since founding my company 15 years ago, I have earned the trust of an impressive roster of clients, including Fortune 100 executives, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders and elected officials. I get bored doing one thing, so my work includes a mix of keynote speaking, organizational training, executive coaching and business development.

Organizations love to hire me for training because my vast corporate experience, high energy, and life-coaching skills ensure that audiences will enjoy the learning environment I create.

How did I get here?

My journey towards becoming a professional speaker began in the fourth grade when I heard Les Brown speak. Back then, he was speaking at local elementary schools.  We ALL started somewhere! I was captivated by the power of speaking to motivate and inspire, and I longed to make others feel as unstoppable as I felt that day.

I started securing unpaid speaking engagements in college. After I graduated and joined a Fortune 50 global corporation, I served as a company spokesperson and coached leaders for speaking engagements and media appearances. Now, much of my work is focused on equipping subject-matter experts, entrepreneurs and leaders (current and retired) to make a greater impact on the world.

I have published four books, helping 17 up-and-coming thought leaders and experts to become first-time authors! That’s one of the accomplishments I’m most proud of. Along the way, I have also hosted two television shows, three podcasts, and appeared on a number of national and local media platforms.

I split my time between Arizona and Michigan and enjoy hanging out with my adult son and binging audiobooks in my free time. I look forward to hearing your vision and putting my expertise and passion to work for you!


The program investment varies dependent upon whether you choose additional coaching/consulting following the program, or if you’re a previous collaborator in the Platform for Purpose Incubator. All options will be presented during your interview call with Isha Cogborn. 

Sessions will begin around 9 a.m. and end around 6 p.m. You will have a leisurely lunch and breaks as needed throughout the day. You will be expected to be present for the full session each day.  Please be sure to schedule flights accordingly. 

Absolutely! Contact Isha Cogborn for more information.

I sure can! When we talk, I’ll tell you about The Speech Crafting Collab –  my process to work with you to create a transformational message while maintaining your unique voice.
