Speaker Guidelines

Thank you for your commitment to speak at a WEofC event!

Unlike a networking group, we are a members-only, application-only organization that empowers women to grow more profitable businesses through expert-led events and founder-to-founder knowledge exchange.

Important information:

  • Speakers should balance strategic next-level concepts with tangible, tactical learnings attendees can bring back to their business the very next day (think business 201, not 101).

  • To gain a better understanding of the women who will be in attendance and the types of businesses and backgrounds they represent, please visit our View Members page. 
  • You are welcome to end your presentation with a call to action to contact you for paid services.
  • An email list of attendees is available upon request (we ask that you send a 1x/email vs adding to your newsletter).
  • 1 complimentary guest ticket is provided and up to 3 additional tickets are available at the Member Rate (if applicable).
  • Printed worksheets are recommended but not required.
  • A copy of your presentation should be sent to us the day before the event as a back-up.

  • We will conduct all promotional activities on your behalf, but we highly encourage that you promote our event with your networks.

6 weeks prior to your event, please email us the following information:

  • Presentation title (e.g. "Nail Your Elevator Pitch")

  • 2-3 sentence description (e.g. what will you be teaching and what can attendees expect to learn?)
  • Headshot
  • Bio
  • URL for members to post reviews of your presentation (e.g. your personal or company Facebook page, LinkedIn, etc.)
  • Sign and return our Speaker Agreement
