What we're about
WomanSpeak is where women learn the art & soul of public speaking. Finally a group about public speaking made by a woman, delivered to women, and in collaboration with women!
Have you struggled to have your voice heard? Do you feel like you never know what to say or how to say it, even among friends and family? Does your chest get tight and your throat go dry at the mere thought of speaking up?
Or maybe you're a seasoned pro when it comes to selling someone else's dream, but feel at a total loss when it comes to sharing your dream.
WomanSpeak Circles consist of local, ongoing, bi-monthly public speaking gatherings. Our Circles are designed to offer places for consistent practice. Why? Because consistency of practice is the key to becoming a powerful and effective public speaker.
The members of a WomanSpeak Circle can come, whenever they wish, to practice and deepen their own artistry of standing up and speaking their truth, speak on panels, tell spellbinding stories, give mini-talks. Women learn how to speak confidently in front of anyone.
Imagine a transformational Toastmasters for women that has a rockin’ fun & supportive community and a lot of emphasis on speaking authentically, effectively, and from the heart.
One of the best parts about WomanSpeak is that when you invest in a WomanSpeak program, a portion of your initiation fee funds a young girl to go through GirlSpeak – for free. How Awesome!
WomanSpeak will meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7PM
WHAT MAKES WOMANSPEAK UNIQUE?
We're not here to count "ums," we're here to honor your story! You've seen the phrase "Empowered Women Empower Women," and the culture of WomanSpeak absolutely embraces that. We value each other, we honor each other, and we rise together!
For too long, public speaking trainings have fostered a masculine model of what leadership and professionalism looks and feels like.
This can have a detrimental effect on the self-esteem of women and girls who desire to speak up and lead.
They look around at masculine leaders (male and female) and subconsciously think to themselves, “I can’t be a leader because I don’t look or feel like that.” Or, “I have to hide or suppress parts of myself in order to speak up and be taken seriously.” This sparks feelings of self doubt, a lack of valuing the wisdom within, and a resistance to speaking up.
It erodes a woman’s sense of inner freedom to lead and share her mind publicly.
It’s time for a public speaking training that supports women in harnessing the power of their feminine energy, and in being fully who they are, as they stand up to speak, lead and change our world.
