What will I learn?


A public speaking workshop to solve why we don't see more women on stage.

The microphone is power. It elevates our voices and positions us as leaders. When we have the mic, people listen.

But too often, women don't hold the mic. There are many reasons why. In this pop-out, we'll identify the problem and be part of the solution.

Join us to learn how to tell your story and present with confidence. We'll start by identifying the barriers to public speaking. We'll then use a framework for crafting a talk, learn the elements of storytelling and how to use them in your presentations, and get tips for feeling confident on stage.

In this safe, supportive environment, you'll craft a short talk, deliver it, and get feedback along the way.
