Conference organisers

Are you running a conference? Do you want speaker diversity? Become a Friend of Speak Easy through these initiatives:

1) Raising Diversity
Offer Speak Easy slot on your conference program dedicated to a Speak Easy graduate. We will match potential speakers with mentors who will help them create an abstract and put their talk together. Speak Easy will submit to you the Speak Easy contenders from which you can select a talk.

2) Finding Diversity and Keynote program for women
Want diversity but not sure where to get the talent? We maintain a list of experienced speakers wanting to speak at your conference. We also have a Keynote program for women who have experience in speaking and who wish to Keynote.

3) Promoting Diversity
Become of Friend of Speak Easy and show your support to this program. You can place our logo on your conference website.

If you choose to work with us at Speak Easy, we will:

  • Send you a Speak Easy graphic to include on your conference web site, plus any text you’d like describing the Speak Easy program
  • Announce our partnership on the Speak Easy site and on social media
  • Include your logo and conference details on our website
  • Encourage submissions on social media
  • Work with potential speakers to prepare them for speaking, typically through our mentors

In return, we ask that you publicize the Speak Easy slots in your conference publicity — blog posts, social media, newsletters, etc.
