• Keynote Speakers for International Women’s Day

    posted on 29/11/2017 by Frances Keane

    International Women’s Day is fast approaching, conferences and events will be held all over the world to celebrate the societal and political achievements of women, while simultaneously calling for gender equality. On this day of all days, you need an engaging female speaker to inspire your audience to think differently and make changes.

    Here at Personally Speaking Bureau, we have wonderful women who as motivational speakers will inject life into your event and mirror the themes of both power and equality for women by opening up and sharing their stories.

    If your event focuses on motivation and empowering women, then Caroline Casey is the motivational speaker for you. Caroline is legally blind and an award-winning social entrepreneur. She is a keen advocate for equality in the workplace and believes that people should not be defined by their disabilities. Caroline is renowned for her engaging speeches on globally recognisable platforms such as TED Talks and One Young World, just to name a few. In fact, owner of TED Chris Anderson recently held Caroline up as an example of inspirational talks done right, saying “The talk should convey something personal about the speaker in order to give the audience a window into the issue, such as activist Caroline Casey’s 2010 talk on overcoming life’s obstacles, ‘Looking past limits’. And it should offer hope that a bad situation could still get better.”
    Caroline is someone who will inspire your audience to engage with and act on bold ideas.

    If your event needs a bold, energetic and passionate speaker, then Sonya Lennon is the perfect choice. Sonya is a designer and entrepreneur who owns three fashion orientated business.
