Many talented professionals want to make a bigger impact and get their work & their ideas better known. That was certainly how I felt in the years after I first launched my consulting business in 2006.

During the intervening decade, I methodically researched the process of how today's leading experts built their brands and their platforms.

I've applied them in my own business, writing three books (from Harvard Business Review Press and Portfolio/Penguin), and have distilled that knowledge fully for the first time in the Recognized Expert course. More than 300+ successful professionals have now been through the program.

Being great at what you do is very different than being well known for what you do.

With the Recognized Expert course, my goal is to level the playing field and help talented professionals get their voices heard, so that the best ideas - not just the loudest voices - are the ones that win.

I'm excited to help you share your best ideas with the world.

Recognized Expert provides you with a clear template for how to build your professional reputation in order to attract the right opportunities to you. We all have limited time, and it’s important not to waste it. The course will help you figure out where to apply your efforts for the greatest return on investment.

What Will You Learn in the Course?

In the course, you'll learn extremely concrete and practical strategies for how to:

  • Find your message and breakthrough idea, and learn to talk about it in a way that sets you apart

  • Get featured in the media & write for prominent publications

  • Land paid speaking engagements (and cool unpaid opportunities like TEDx talks)

  • Grow your social media and online following

  • Attract clients, job offers, and consulting opportunities to you - rather than constantly having to fight for them

  • Build your email list

  • Overcome self-doubt and the 'imposter syndrome' that holds many talented professionals back

  • Network with peers and so-called 'influencers' in a genuine and authentic way, even if you're an introvert (like I am)

  • Launch a successful book, blog, or podcast

How is the Course Structured?

Recognized Expert™ is an in-depth online course that you can access anytime, anywhere around the world. The course includes more than 40 hours of targeted video instruction modules, as well as monthly live Q&A sessions (which are recorded, in case you can't make a particular session). Upon registration, you'll be given immediate access to all the course materials, so if you'd like to "binge," you can. Alternately, if you prefer a 'paced' experience, I'll send out weekly emails to you over a 14-week period with suggested material for you to watch, and homework assignments for you to complete, that week.

Michael Maddaus, MD Professor of Thoracic Surgery

Taking the Recognized Expert course was one of the best decisions I ever made

Michael Maddaus, MD Professor of Thoracic Surgery

"Two years ago I was sitting in front of the computer, at home, alone, knowing I wanted to put my years of experience and skills to use in the world, but I had no idea where to begin. As a thoracic surgeon, my world was academic medicine. I came across Dorie Clark’s book Reinventing You and after reading it I took the leap of faith and joined the Recognized Expert Course and community. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Instantly you have access to her phenomenal down to earth, authentic, and practical course and to Dorie and to the fantastic community of Rx’ers she has assembled. There you will find others on the same journey with so much experience and wisdom and kindness and willingness to help. Bottom line - if you want to make a difference in the world and you need help getting there, this is the place for you. "
Susan Peppercorn, CEO Positive Workplace Partners

A global community of amazing and accomplished individuals

Susan Peppercorn, CEO Positive Workplace Partners

"Dorie combines the best of head and heart. She is generous in spirit, whip-smart, and authentic. As a participant in one of her mastermind groups and several courses, I've always come away with a plethora of creative and actionable strategies to grow my business and brand. She doesn't stop at one-one coaching or small group learning. Dorie created a global community that has allowed me to learn from and collaborate with some of the most amazing and accomplished individuals that I otherwise would not have known. I would highly recommend her to anyone trying to define their niche and stand out."
Robbie Samuels, Keynote Speaker, Strategist, and Author

The connections I've made are worth the price alone

Robbie Samuels, Keynote Speaker, Strategist, and Author

"I've sought and followed Dorie's counsel for over a decade and can trace every major business opportunity back to her - whether it was something I learned in her Recognized Expert course, from someone in the REx community, or an introduction Dorie made. It was an easy decision to join her program for the content, but the connections I've made are a huge value that I believe is worth the price of admission all on it's own. If you're ready to become known for your expertise, follow the path Dorie blazed for us and has kindly mapped out."
Tom Waterhouse, Independent Consultant

A fantastic investment

Tom Waterhouse, Independent Consultant

“I’m absolutely loving the Recognized Expert course – the materials, the community, your engagement. Truly a fantastic investment.”
Dr. Christina Guthier, Occupational Health and Organizational Psychologist

Dorie taught me in an actionable and focused way to become an expert

Dr. Christina Guthier, Occupational Health and Organizational Psychologist

"Dorie’s Recognized Expert course taught me in an actionable and focused way what it takes to become a recognized expert in the (business) world. During the 14 week course period I became more aware of my unique set of expertise and built my individual recognized expert roadmap. And the best part is: I will be surrounded by Dorie and all the other generous and inspiring people of the Recognized Expert community to make the switch from academic to recognized expert really happen. Investing in this course was definitely one of the best decisions in my life!"
Jenny Lisk, Host, The Widowed Parent Podcast

One of the best professional decisions I have ever made

Jenny Lisk, Host, The Widowed Parent Podcast

“Dorie's approach and her ideas really do work if you apply them thoughtfully and consistently over the long term. In the past few months, I've been quoted as an expert in the Washington Post, had a full-page profile in ParentMap, been shouted-out by the keynote speaker at a major conference in my field, and grown my podcast to over 14,000 downloads in 50 countries. My email list has grown, with strong engagement. I'll be publishing my first book later this year. Joining Dorie Clark's Recognized Expert course and community was one of the best professional decisions I have ever made."

How Much Time Does the Course Take?

You can binge on the course materials if you'd like (you'll have full access as soon as you register), but typically plan to spend 2-3 hours per week over a 14 week period. My goal with the course was to set a realistic pace - one that allows you to make meaningful progress toward becoming a Recognized Expert™, but doesn't take over your life - because, as a busy professional, that's neither realistic nor sustainable. I want the program to help you create habits for professional growth and development that you can - and want to - keep up over time.

Testimonials

Paul Fairbrother, Social Media Specialist

This course resulted in a significant raise

Paul Fairbrother, Social Media Specialist

"By lunchtime today I've already received three emails offering me the chance to write blog posts for well respected sites in my industry, plus a request to be a guest on a webinar and a spot on a podcast. Compare this to zero requests in a month before I took the Recognized Expert course and that's proof enough for me that Dorie's methods work. Although the course is a significant investment, it also resulted in a significant raise and therefore paid for itself in no time at all."
Alisa Cohn, Inc.com & Forbes.com Columnist, Executive Coach

I started blogging as an expert for Worth magazine as a direct result of this course

Alisa Cohn, Inc.com & Forbes.com Columnist, Executive Coach

“I started blogging as an expert for Worth magazine as a direct result of this course. Dorie’s voice is in your head about your ability to get things done, and I took a risk in reaching out to publications and it worked out. That helped build my confidence, and I was then able to use those credentials to work my way into other publications. Those are huge takeaways for me, and they’re game changers for me in my profession.”
Nihar Chhaya, Executive Coach for Senior Leaders at Global Companies

I started receiving inbound inquires about my executive coaching practice

Nihar Chhaya, Executive Coach for Senior Leaders at Global Companies

“Through the Recognized Expert course, I met a talented author who was writing an article for a high profile publication and polling people on their career experiences. My story resonated with her and she decided to include it in her article. Within a few days, I started receiving inbound inquiries about my executive coaching practice from leaders I didn't know but who had read the article. This simple example proved to me that Dorie's teachings work wonders if you put in the work and stay authentic in your contributions.”
Dr. Sharon Melnick, Psychologist, Author, Professional Speaker

When you want to accomplish something, turn to someone who's already done it

Dr. Sharon Melnick, Psychologist, Author, Professional Speaker

"When you want to achieve something, turn to someone who has already done it. That's Dorie Clark. She's ubiquitous in the influential business publications and on the marquee conference stages, and commands high fees for her speaking and consulting. This program is unique because Dorie brings her signature ability to break things down and is highly accessible to answer your questions. You get a blueprint, insider advice on what to do (and not do), and inspiration from the other community members."
Anucha Browne, Sports Executive

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course!

Anucha Browne, Sports Executive

"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course to others. Once in a while, you connect with a forward-thinking giver. That's exactly who Dorie Clark is. This is a perfectly designed course that provides clear and specific direction to those who are on the cusp of effecting change and making their passion a reality."
Katie Carr Miller, Executive Leadership Coach

I have a roadmap now

Katie Carr Miller, Executive Leadership Coach

“I feel like I have a roadmap now. Six weeks ago, I had no idea where to start or how I should organize myself. Now I have not only a perspective on these areas, but your stories in my head that can help validate me on how I should be spending my time and define what I should and shouldn't do. I am all about efficiencies, and your content has provided solutions for me.”
Terri Deuel, Consultant

Everything I needed to know to save time, money, and aggravation

Terri Deuel, Consultant

"Efforts to become a recognized expert, gain visibility and stand out in a crowded world were overwhelming and discouraging. I struggled with how to go about it, which is exactly why Dorie Clark's Recognized Expert course was the ideal choice for me. She simplified the process by giving me everything I needed to know to save time, money and aggravation, including methods to build a reputation, ways to avoid common mistakes and blueprints to jump-start my efforts."
Brittany Thomas, Marketing and Operations Coach

Dorie's Recognized Expert course is refreshingly real

Brittany Thomas, Marketing and Operations Coach

"With countless courses promising unrealistic overnight success, Dorie's Recognized Expert Course is refreshingly real. Based on her own experience and other successful experts, Dorie teaches how to effectively build an expertise that will pay off in the long-run. I recently started my own consulting business and this course has helped me further define my unique value as a marketer and what type of clients I can best serve. The content inspired me to focus my business more on what I'm naturally curious about - wellness & fitness. Before the course I had countless ideas of what to write about, and now I am able to better focus on content that will help me grow my expertise and business long term. One of the best parts about this course is the incredible community Dorie has cultivated. The supportive, smart (and fun!) REx crew have been valuable teachers to me during this new chapter of my career. It is 100% worth the investment."
Elena Rodighiero, Cybersecurity Solutions Specialist

Dorie's course is truly empowering

Elena Rodighiero, Cybersecurity Solutions Specialist

“Thanks to what I learned in the course, in less than one year, I have been invited to speak at Microsoft’s annual conference to present a deal I closed in an innovative way, and I co-authored a case with my former business school professor. Now, I feel I have so many other opportunities to contribute. Dorie’s class was truly empowering.”
Chris Littlefield, Employee Engagement Consultant

Watching and learning from the Recognized Expert group is what gave me the confidence to make all this happen.

Chris Littlefield, Employee Engagement Consultant

“If you had told me a year ago that this kid with learning disabilities in reading and writing would write for Harvard Business Review Ascend and knock out an 80 page book in a month and a half, I would have laughed. Watching and learning from the Recognized Expert group is what gave me the confidence to make all this happen. Thank you!”

“The Recognized Expert course helped me market and monetize my book, Future Proof. It’s now an Amazon best-seller, and I developed an email list from scratch, an online course, and a lucrative speaking career I didn't even know was possible until I saw what some of the other amazing people in the community were doing. My only complaint is that I wish I'd joined earlier!”
Lisa DeAngelis, PhD, Director, Center for Collaborative Leadership

The best investment you can make in yourself

Lisa DeAngelis, PhD, Director, Center for Collaborative Leadership

“Dorie's Recognized Expert course is so much more than a course. In addition to strong content, Dorie has created a community of experts who all actively work to support one another, whether that be in starting/growing a business, becoming a published author, garnering keynote opportunities, and more. The value of having access to the content for life, in itself, exceeds the cost of the course. When you couple this with the ongoing learning opportunities that she offers and the community, this is the best investment you can make in yourself.”

How Do I Know if Recognized Expert™ is Right for Me?

Here are some frequently asked questions about the Recognized Expert course:

  • What if I don't know what my breakthrough idea is?

    That's totally OK. The course teaches you how to identify your breakthrough idea. To clarify, the course is not right for you if you're reinventing and have no idea what direction you want to take or what field you want to be in. But if you have a sense of where you'd like to make your mark – for instance, in healthcare consulting, or being a social media strategist or a human rights attorney or a wealth manager or an executive coach - this course helps guide you through the process of discovering your distinctive ideas and the contribution you can make.

  • What if I'm not sure I'm an expert?

    Many of us have had doubts at one point or another about whether we're really qualified. In fact, there's a module in the course about "Imposter Syndrome" and how to overcome it. If you have no training or experience, then of course Recognized Expert won't magically help with that. But if you're a smart professional who has been working hard and you know in your heart you have something to offer, Recognized Expert helps teach you the skills and strategies to get your ideas more widely heard.

  • What if I get busy for a while and can't fully participate?

    Not a problem. You have lifetime membership in the course, so you can return to it anytime when you're less busy. All live sessions are recorded, as well.

  • Is the course relevant if I work inside a corporation and don't want to be an entrepreneur?

    Yes - many Recognized Expert participants work inside corporations and are using what they learn in the course to become recognized for their knowledge and skills inside their companies (including many Fortune 500 firms). The material is completely transferable, whether the universe you're seeking to impact is your company or your field, in general.

  • I don't live in a major city (or I don't live in the US). Will this be a problem?

    No - the course is 100% online, so you can consume the material whenever & wherever it's convenient for you. We do have live monthly webinars, typically held mid-day US Eastern Time (morning Pacific time and evening in Europe), but if you can't make those, it's not an issue: 1) you can email in any questions you'd like asked and yours will always be handled first; and 2) all sessions are recorded so you can watch them the next day, or at your convenience.

  • Are the strategies you share applicable in markets outside the US?

    Short answer: yes. Many participants in the Recognized Expert course & community come from countries outside the US (England, Australia, Italy, Slovenia, Chile, the Netherlands, France, Mauritius, and Hong Kong, to name just a few). This course is about applying universally applicable strategies - that work in any cultural context - about how to identify your strengths, build a solid network, and apply your skills in a way so that they're understood and appreciated by others.

  • But what if I hate blogging?

    It's not a problem if you don't want to blog (or speak, or podcast, or whatever). There are many paths to becoming a recognized expert, and the course helps you identify the strategies that will work best for you. It's not one-size-fits-all, so it enables you to personalize your approach.

  • How advanced do you have to be in order to take the course? What if I just started my business?

    It's never too early to start the process of building your reputation in the marketplace. In fact, a number of Recognized Expert participants started the course several years before officially launching their businesses, because they wanted to build a foundation to move into entrepreneurship more seamlessly. The key question for you here is around how to allocate your time. Some new entrepreneurs have more urgency around cash flow and therefore need to spend most of their time with immediate cash generating activities (which, sadly, becoming a Recognized Expert is not: it takes time to show results). But if you have time that you can afford to put toward this long-term activity, that's fantastic, because it gives you a critical advantage a few years down the road.

  • Does the course provide certification or continuing education credits?

    Not really. If you would like a certificate upon completion, I'm glad to provide one. But to be clear, the Recognized Expert course is intended as a personal learning tool for you, and we don't have an arrangement with various entities that require certification or credits. This is an investment in your personal growth, rather than something that would help you meet a specific requirement.

  • Money is tight. How quickly will I see a return on my investment?

    Please don't join the course. Becoming a Recognized Expert takes time, and though it varies, it's often 2-3 years of consistent effort before you start to see meaningful results. To truly enjoy the course and be able to get the maximum value out of it, you need to have a long-term time frame.

  • How is the course different from your books?

    The Recognized Expert™ course contains *50 hours* of recorded material, so it goes into much more depth than is possible in my books - even if you've read all of them. Additionally, there's the interaction with me and with other course participants in our online community, and lifetime access to our monthly webinars. It's a much more experiential, intensive process than simply reading the books.

Jennifer Fondrevay, Author, Speaker, and Consultant

“Taking Dorie’s Recognized Expert course is like hiring a personal trainer at your gym. You’ve got the membership and you could go any day or time. But you commit seriously when you hire a personal trainer, and the benefit of that is the confidence it builds in you. You want to get better, and you meet people in the class at different levels and they spur you on to get even better. That’s what it’s like to work with Dorie and be part of the Recognized Expert community.”

Who is the Course NOT Right For?

The course won't be a good fit if:

  • You're unsure where you want your career to go.

    The course will only be helpful once you decide where you'd like to make your mark. You don't have to have everything figured out, but it's important to have chosen your general field. If you haven't decided this yet, the course may be premature for you.

  • Money is a major concern.

    If you're in a financial position where you need urgent, immediate returns, this class is not right for you. Becoming a Recognized Expert™ is a process that takes time, often several years, to come to fruition. It's enormously powerful for your career, but you need to have the patience and leeway to make the investment now and plan for the future. If money is an immediate concern, please don't enroll. You won't be able to enjoy or benefit from the course if you're feeling extreme financial pressure.

“I booked contracts that earned me more than double the cost of the course!” - Kris Marsh

What Does the Course Cost, and Is There a Payment Plan?

The Recognized Expert™ course is $1995, analogous to the price of a graduate-level course at the top business schools where I teach. (Except that no business school offers courses on this topic. If you want to learn this material, this course is the place to do it.) There are two slightly more expensive multi-payment options, which are spread over four months or six months.

How to Register

If you're trying to figure out whether the course is the right fit for you, or you have any questions, let's talk directly. Please note that there are no refunds for the course, because I only want people to join who are fully committed. Do not join if you aren't sure! Research has shown that people who are "all in" are more likely to do the work and therefore get better results - which is our goal, after all. I want you to make a decision you feel great about and will advise you directly about whether I think the course will be helpful to you based on where you are. Feel free to email me directly at dorie@dorieclark.com to talk further. And if you'd like to go ahead and sign up for the course, let's do it! I look forward to working with you & having you as part of our community of talented professionals.

    If you want to learn how to become a recognized expert, you've come to the right place. Dorie walks the walk not only talks the talk. She developed a three-part, action-oriented framework for demystifying the process of gaining market visibility; creating content, establishing social proof and building a network. Through videos and class discussions, Dorie breaks down each of the three segments into easily digestible bite-size chunks. A highlight of the course were interviews that she conducted with other luminaries to get find out how they developed their reputation. This is the second course I've taken for entrepreneurs who want to grow their following. The first seemed like an 8-week commercial to purchase someone else's services. Rest assured, in Dorie's course you will get pure, excellent content!
