Helping journalists, producers and conference planners find the female guests, speakers and expert sources they need.

Present with impact – Do this

  1. Decide in advance of meetings to actively seek at least one opportunity to speak up; step up to the audience mic to ask a question at conferences you attend.

  2. Look for opportunities to get additional experience and exposure in your volunteer life, where the stakes may be lower.

  3. Consider crafting a 10 to 20-minute presentation on a timely issue about which you have an informed opinion and can provide others with useful information — either in your professional or personal life.

  4. Apply some of the strategies shared here to enhance your ability to engage audiences.

  5. Rehearse it aloud, record yourself with your smartphone, get feedback from a friend or colleague.
