SPEAK!’s ‘Month of Women’: Recap plus MORE!

Our goal in April was to present some fantastic, engaging and inspiring female speakers, in light of a statistic indicating that less than 10% of keynote speakers are women. We’ve had an outpouring of positive reaction—thank you!

So to recap (and we couldn’t resist adding several more 🙂 ),check out the list below of talented women that could engage, inspire and deliver actionable content to your team at your next franchise conference or convention.
