What is Shine?

Shine provides the tools and support to help women become respected speakers and leaders.

We host an intensive, virtual 8-week accelerator for women who want to level up their public speaking. 


Recorded workshops, professional coaching, and facilitated peer feedback help you find and refine your voice and message, craft a compelling story and slide deck, deliver an engaging presentation, and build a supportive and fruitful speaking network. 

We are known to go beyond standard courses by offering simulated learning experiences with tangible results and takeaways.

Is Shine for me?

Are you a woman or nonbinary person comfortable in a space that centres the experiences of women? Do you have a desire to share your knowledge and become a respected thought leader in your industry or community? Are you ready to stretch your limits in a supportive and nurturing environment?


If you found yourself nodding yes to each of these questions, Shine Bootcamp is absolutely for you.

What People Say About Shine

Shine was one of the most impactful professional (and personal) experiences I've ever had. I have wanted to get up on stage and share my expertise for a long time, but have always found reasons to hold myself back. At Shine, I was surrounded by an incredible group of allies in a super safe, motivating space. And holding myself back just didn't make any sense. It was a space where I couldn't help but excel. Once you get up on stage, once you feel those supportive vibes, once you stumble, laugh, power realize that you've belonged there all along. I couldn't recommend Shine more for any woman with something to share
