About Speaking Your Brand®


Our Mission: To amplify and champion diverse, progressive, & purpose-driven women's voices.

In our clientele, programs, podcast guests, and vendors, we seek a diversity of women from different backgrounds, topics, industries, ages, races, ethnicities, and sexualities, as we know how much diversity enriches the conversation and community for all of us.

We are feminists who believe that women's lives, stories, experiences, and voices should be equally valued. We understand intersectionality and advocate for #ChoosingWomensVoices, from the podcasts we listen to, to the books we read, to the influencers we follow.

We believe that #BlackLivesMatter and we support the LGBTQ+ community and equal rights for all.

We are doing our work to provide a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for our team, our clients, and our audiences.


Our Promise: Through coaching, training, and support, we help you find and use your voice and share your message and expertise so you can have a transformative impact on your audiences - and yourself.

We believe that speaking and visibility raise the profile of women and their businesses on stages, in boardrooms, in the media, in communities, and in politics.

We've seen the power of women's stories and visibility to challenge the status quo and change existing systems, to benefit more people.

Our coaches are trained in the Speaking Your Brand® framework and have years of experience in speaking, storytelling, media, marketing, and branding.
