This week, I’m so excited to share what it looks like to prepare for a speaking event — both as a speaker and as a producer. 


When I recorded this episode, I was in preparation for an event on International Women's Day. I spoke at this event in addition to producing it with CUNY, the City University of New York and the amazing Paulina Lopez, founder of The Business of WE (Women Entrepreneurs).


I know the ideas and insights I share from my experience of preparing for this event are going to set you up for success with your next speaking event as well. Because, big or small, all events are created equal when it comes to your influential voice. 


In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • Why Paulina asked me to work with her on this event and what we were looking for in our speakers

  • How I curate the order and flow of shows that I produce and why that matters

  • What you can do before your event to help you show up fully when you speak

  • The power of amplifying and elevating each other's voices
