There are tons of events teaching you how to be seen as the top expert.
How is this different?
In addition to this being a ‘get shit done’ event where you will get real results in real time…
Other events tend to only focus on ONE piece of the puzzle - such as only learning how to land press.
But... without creating your brand voice, developing high impact messaging, knowing how to present on camera, leveraging influencers to grow your following and more, you will only get mediocre results.
And you want exceptional results, right?
*PLUS: our in-person VIPs will be interviewed in an “Oprah” style studio in front of a live audience and be guaranteed at least 3 national press interviews.
This IS for you if you:
Want real media attention and the credibility that comes with it.
Are ready to own your unique voice and be seen as a powerful force on this earth.
Value working with consultants and trainers who have a proven track record of results and have achieved the success you are seeking.
Want to stand out from the noise and make an impact.
Crave authentically connecting with bigger influencers to raise your public profile.
This is NOT for you if you:
Are looking for a quick fix (such as getting fake press).
Like buying into hype (such as paying to be pictured with a celebrity).
Would rather come across as overly polished and "slick" than being your authentic self.
Want canned scripts, tools and systems that aren’t customized for you.
Don’t have a niche in your expertise and you believe you can sell to everyone.
Are ego driven, not purpose driven.
Cindy Ashton Presentation Strategist
I immigrated to the US right after the 2008 economic crash. Although I had an established career singing opera, doing comedy shows and being a 2X nationally published Educational Consultant, suddenly I found myself in a new country, with no connections and during the worst possible time. I had just spent $100,000 in the immigration process and had nothing left to invest.
As a performing artist, it is all about connection and delivering the right message for the right audience. I got out there and 'figured out' how to market myself on social media and land media to gain visibility. Within a year, I was performing with Emmy® winners, sharing stages as a speaker with some of the biggest names on the planet, landing massive press and even got an award from the U.S. President.
The power of how you present yourself is everything. I love working with our clients on how to bring out their best self in their presentation style, communicate their message to the world and be an A-Lister in their Industry!
When I am not on stage, screen or with our clients, I love to travel the world, play with my sister's dogs and have crazy adventures (I once got knocked over by an ass while hiking up a cliff in Greece!).
Christina Daves PR Strategist
In 2010, I invented a product, fashion accessories for medical boots. Everyone loved the concept but what I didn’t consider was that I had created an entirely new space in the marketplace. No one knew they “needed” to decorate their boots. We had mortgaged our house to pay for manufacturing so when the product arrived, I had no money left for advertising or hiring a PR firm.
I started doing a ton of research and became a DIY-PR expert. In my first year in business I appeared in over 50 media outlets including The Steve Harvey Show, Dr. Oz, and my local FOX and NBC stations. Once I started getting media exposure and seeing what that did for my business, I knew I had to keep going. To date, I’ve appeared in over 1,000 media outlets and even have a monthly segment on Good Morning Washington.
I know what PR can do for a business. I've seen it first hand and I've seen it with my clients. They use the credibility and authority that comes with it, as well as the visibility and they grow their business tremendously.
There is nothing I love more than turning on my television or flipping through a magazine and seeing a client there - WOW!!! I'm like a proud momma bear.
When I'm not on stage, screen or with our clients, I love going to the beach with my family, taking long walks or bike rides with my husband Steve, watching hockey (Go Caps!) or college football (Go Hokies!) and enjoying a nice glass of Chardonnay.

"Before I attended Captivate and Cash In [now Get PR Famous], I had a 'what I do' statement that worked well for explaining what I do to potential clients, but it was too long and clunky for pitching the media. During the event, which I attended virtually, I was brought up on screen and after Christina heard what I did, she gave me the perfect summary statement that was catchy, pithy and I've not only been able to use it when pitching the press, but also in my marketing, as well.
Cindy and Christina play well off each other, their skills and expertise add value to each other. What they created with this event was impressive. The mix of learning and doing so that you leave not only with a ream of notes, but an action plan and assets you can use, as well, is way more valuable than what you get at most events.
In addition, as a virtual attendee, I didn't feel left out. Cindy and Christina made sure that our questions were addressed. They included us in the hot seats, as well as the tour of the the studios. I would highly recommend attending their "Get PR Famous" event. I've got it on my calendar for next year!
- Carma Spence, Legacy Creation Mentor
"I learned so much during this event about impactful ways I can market my business and what I can do in order to get more media exposure. From learning how to find and build relationships with influencers, to finding and pitching journalists, how to find trending news on Google and so much more. The templates and examples we were given along with several tips and tools are priceless. I look forward to continuing to implement what I learned so I can more easily land media attention and reach a bigger audience with my message!"
- Marisa Ferrera, Empowerment Coach & Mentor
Less than 8 hours after pitching the media at the event, she got a response from a journalist and landed in the media And after implementing our strategy to leverage influencers on social media, a LinkedIn post got 16× more engagement and views than her average posts.
