HOSTED BY Speaker Express

The Female Speakers Conference: Dedicated to Filling the Stage with Female Voices

Run in collaboration with Speaker Express and World Class Female Speakers, The Female Speakers Conference is dedicated to helping shape the dialogue around the critical factors currently at play that keep women speakers from being found and recognized on stage.

Join us for an empowering day focused on the Business of Speaking and walk away with a better understanding of how to get on larger stages and be handsomely paid for it!

Gain valuable industry insights to help you better understand the type of speaker you are and where you can reap the best financial rewards.

Investigate what makes a great speaker profile, and explore some of the most common mistakes women make around marketing, branding, and sales which often stop us from being found and landing those high-level gigs.

Learn why bookers and agents struggle to find female speakers and discover how you can become top of mind.

Better understand how to find and secure speaking gigs so that you can increase your influence, upscale your business, and use your voice for good!

Plus, meet the women setting new standards and inspiring us from stage in innovative ways as we recognise these trailblazers across a diverse array of categories in the second annual Professional Speaker Awards.

Speaker - Annik Petrou - Get Paid To Speak
Annik started Speaker Express in 2011 after feeling stuck with no confidence and fear of speaking up about her ideas because they might sound silly to others. She has seen and heard thousands of different speeches & pitches and delivered training in the UK, Europe, Australia & Africa. Her clients include technology start-ups within Silicon Roundabout, coaches, consultants, CEOs, Managing Directors, high-end corporates and a recently funded business voted 'Best Dragons’ Den Pitch Ever’.

As part of their 3 or 6-month Speaking Accelerator, Speaker Express continues to assist thousands of entrepreneurs to successfully pitch for investment and funding, gain the confidence to push their business from home office to the stage, give talks on TEDx stages, generate more leads or land big corporate contracts/gigs.

Annik will share with you how to get MORE gigs and the perfect structure for a Signature Talk that sells. Besides training & speaking Annik loves exploring the English countryside, her cockapoo Roxy and red velvet cupcakes.
