LiveVirtualSummit_1500x600

Join us for a one-of-a-kind speaking event.

Brave. Bold. Beyond.

How do you push past the doubts that crop up from your own internal voice plus the ones you hear externally?

As women, we're outside the system that was set up by {white} men for the benefit of {white} men.

As such, we can see the Matrix: what's broken and why, what needs to change, and how we can come together to do so.

It's time to change the b.s. stories we've been told, speak up and advocate for what we believe, and break the script to make our own.

Are you ready to use your voice to change our world?

dots-inline-gradient

As a public speaking company, we want to make sure our speakers are top notch.

We're spending lots of time preparing them, from a workshop on how to create a TED-style talk to office hours and a dress rehearsal.

Each speaker has a volunteer speaking coach, who has been through our programs, to help them improve their content and delivery.

During the event, along with watching the speakers deliver their talks, you'll also hear from the speakers & coaches in panel discussions on what went into identifying their big idea and creating the structure for their talks.
