    Public speaking can help promote your business or your career, connecting you with potential customers, partners or influencers. Public speaking drives credibility and thought leadership. Public speaking is also a great way to demonstrate and build confidence. Innovation Women has helped thousands of women get onstage at conferences and events. With this free guide, you’ll learn more about the events and speaking world and understand more about how event managers and conference organizers choose speakers. You’ll learn what you need to do to get started, including how to position yourself as The Expert in your field. What is a sizzle reel? A Call for Speakers? (We’ll even throw in some “Super Tips”, those little details no one else thinks to share, and a Special Resources page.)

    What is Innovation Women?

    Innovation Women is a self-service platform connecting event managers and women speakers and subject matter experts around the globe. Our platform is updated daily with speaking opportunities across more than 180 industries. These professional speaking and other visibility opportunities are both in-person and online.

    Our mission is to provide equal visibility opportunities for women and bring diversity to the “all-male, all-pale and all-stale” panels we see so often at industry conferences and events. We need more women onstage in order to drive pay equity, more funding for female-founded companies and place more women on boards.

    Innovation Women has proudly placed thousands of women on stages around the world, as well as helped event managers successfully build diverse panels and events. We want our platform to reflect the breadth and depth of our world so events can showcase that diversity and inspire future generations.
