prepare, practice, PLATFORM & profile…
After speaking at conferences around the country, I came to realize that something was missing. Why were there so few women speakers? I began to ask that question to the conference and church leaders I met with and I heard the same response from them all, "Where are they? We can't find them."
The Women Speakers Collective is an attempt to help. This isn't a new fight—it's an old one. Women have been silent or invisible far too often and for far too long in our world. We join the rising chorus of diversity with many female voices around the globe from platforms they already stand on, with the intention to make more room and give more space for exceptional, gifted, bold and wise female voices to join in this truth telling choir. HOW?
Prepare & Practice:
we will host speakers boot camps for women who are looking to refine their speaking skills and connect with other powerful women.
we will seek out platforms for women speakers at events and churches globally.
We will feature the best and brightest new female speakers on our website for a year to launch them into wider spaces.
Pass It On:
We will not compete with each other. We will rise BY LIFTING OTHERS. Every member of this collective will be identifying and encouraging other women speakers.
We believe now is the time for women to step up to the microphone.
We need your voice.
Meet your coach
Hi, I’m so glad you are interested in the Women Speakers Collective. I’ve been speaking for over 20 years, in over 40 countries to hundreds of thousands of people in a whole heap of different contexts—churches, conferences, leadership retreats, business settings, homeless drop-ins, Mayor breakfasts, parks, fields, and once I even got to speak on Main Street in Disneyland!
I love mobilizing people towards their calling and helping them step forward in faith and use their gifts to make this world a better place.
If you are capable and interested in speaking, I’d love for you to be part of it! I think it’s time for women’s voices to be heard—and I’d love to help yours be stronger and bolder.
your voice matters.
We believe in you. Maybe speaking has been a dream of yours and you just aren't quite sure what the next step is. This is why we exist. You'll find our Speakers Boot Camp filled with collaboration from other aspiring speakers together in one room with your coach, Danielle Strickland.
Interested in having a larger platform? You'll have an opportunity at the Speakers Boot Camp to present your best talk (ted talk style) and have an opportunity to be given one of two spots available on our PROFILE. Our PROFILE features the up and coming brightest and most dynamic women speakers we know. You ready to take it to the next level? Let's do this.
