Lots of people want to speak, but only some get selected. Learn how to craft your pitch about your presentation topic into something that is timely, intriguing and differentiated. Bring your draft pitch to our online workshop, we’ll give you some tips, give you some time to make improvements, and then you’ll have the opportunity to give your pitch to workshop attendees. We’ll crowdsource thoughts on what worked and what didn’t, and what might make it even more intriguing. Leave the workshop with a great statement on what you talk about, and some savvy phrases you can drop into social media, your speaker’s bureau profile, and beyond.

This workshop will be led by Jeanel Carlson (speaker & holistic wellness advocate, and CLUB Board member) and Laraine McKinnon (speaker, innovation & diversity strategist, and current CLUB President.)
