Speaker Training

Share your story * Live your purpose * Impact lives

Just like ripples in the water, your message can effect more people than you know. Leave a powerful legacy in the world through speaking. The Ivy Girl Academy hires speakers to be a part of their "Mean-Girl Makeover" tours and we don't consider a speaker unless she shows us she's serious and committed first. If you want to be an IGA speaker, this training is required before we will review your application. However, going through this program will NOT guarantee you a spot on our speaker team.
