Speed has worked for broadcast companies such as Shamrock Broadcasting (Disney), South Central Communications, and Entercom Communications. In 2000 Speed joined forces with Advantage Systems and in 2007 Speed partnered with broadcaster Katey Woolam to found the online training company, P1 Learning.
