What does it take to become a thought leader? To be seen as the expert or the authority in your field? What will it take to get that next promotion? Or a new job? Or a board seat? Often, nothing more than the willingness to speak up and share your thoughts and experiences in public. The rise of events and experiential marketing means there are more opportunities than ever before for public speaking, but women remain at a disadvantage when it comes to getting on stage. Did you know that 70 percent of the speakers at industry conferences and events are men? Women have to work harder to get onstage and once they do, they need to understand how to turn these speaking engagements into leverage. This session will teach you why public speaking is so important, how to brand yourself for speaking and how to find and secure gigs.
