Find a speaker


We all want to see more female speakers…

…and we sympathise with event organisers who tell us they struggle to find women who are willing to take the stage. To make their lives easier, we’ve put together this list of women from around the world who would be happy to speak at industry events! To add your name and profile to the list, email us here, including your company, job role, where you’re based, what you feel comfortable talking about and a portrait picture, and we’ll add you to this page!
