My guest is Mia Voss, who is a speaker, emcee, and brand ambassador, and we have a lot of fun – and we get real about things like gender pay parity for speakers – during this interview.

We talk about:

  • How Mia seems like an unlikely speaker because of what happened to her in her 20s
  • The work Mia does as an emcee and panel moderator
  • Getting paid to speak
  • The pay disparity between male and female speakers
  • Asking and negotiating with event organizers on your pay
  • What to do when you’re asked to be on a panel or speak at an event and there’s no diversity
  • The importance of having a walk-on song
  • What to wear when speaking
  • How NOT to start your talk
  • Ways to get the audience to tag you on social media
