Event Category

Are you a woman-identifying entrepreneur who's interested in increasing her business revenue through paid speaking? Join us to learn more!

Are you a woman-identifying business owner in the Kingston or Quinte area who’s interested in generating income and sales through professional speaking?

If so, join the WE-CAN community for an interactive discussion about how you can develop speaking as a main (or alternate) source of income for your business.


Establishing yourself as a professional speaker has many advantages:

  • Enhances your visibility as a business owner
  • Establishes you as an authority in your field
  • Builds your reputation as a thought leader
  • Creates new revenue streams
  • Adds diverse voices to the dominant social conversation
  • Inspires and empowers other women to speak!

We'll be discussing the different forms of speaking, how to monetize your speaking and where to find speaking opportunities, both locally and elsewhere.

BONUS: We'll also be launching our new WE-CAN Women's Speaking Circle at this Virtual Cafe, so stay tuned to be among the first to receive the application link!


NOTE: Live Zoom transcription will be available during this event. Should you require other accessibility supports, please email as soon as possible since advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility services.

Registered attendees will be emailed a Zoom link to the online session by separate email prior to the event.
