Public Speaking: The Game-Changer

Presented by

Bobbie Carlton

About this talk

Two-thirds of all conference speakers are men…a large percentage of them because they still hold more positions of power and prestige. This prevents others from tapping the many benefits of public speaking. It also creates a vicious circle of bias as speakers are seen as thought leaders and experts, perpetuating the myth of male dominance. (You’ll never be seen as a leader while sitting in the audience.) What does it take to become a thought leader? To be seen as the expert or the authority in your field? Often, nothing more than the willingness to stand up and share your ideas in public. But how can we open stages to all? How can we create paths to the stage suitable for everyone? With this behind-the scenes look at gender-equity and inclusion at conferences, events, and throughout the world of professional speaking, you’ll learn about the personal, professional and organizational benefits of public speaking, and what it can mean for you and your team. Takeaways: - Understand the processes and tactics you need to employ to be selected as a speaker - Understand how public speaking impacts your public persona - Learn specific things you can do to kick-off a speaking career or business
