  1. 1. Public Communications Training for Women
  2. 2. why womenspeak? Public communication - whether by way of a media appearance, a company presentation or a speech for an event - is an instrument of incalculable influence. Yet current research shows that women still struggle both to gain access to it and to thrive within its sphere. WOMENSPEAK Training was established to address this lack of parity by way of better communications training. We have tailored traditional communication programs to meet the specific needs of the female communicator in a variety of public communications and advocacy settings.

In U.S. businesses, where men's speaking style dominates, women may be ignored, interrupted, and passed over for promotions - even if they're highly competent.” "The Power of Talk: Who Gets Heard and Why" Deborah Tannen Harvard Business Review why womenspeak? Figures from the Women's Media Center show that globally, news stories including women tally less than 15% and are often only about appearance and family status.
