Wait. Why enroll in Shine's speaking program when conferences are cancelled for the foreseeable future?
Because speaking is about more than being on a physical stage. It’s about having the confidence to communicate with your audience, no matter where you are and who they are.
There are two main ingredients to an incredible presentation: content + delivery. Both can be improved in a virtual learning environment. Plus, speaking on a webinar, podcast or at a virtual conference is the perfect intro.
At Shine, you'll get weekly speaker coaching. You'll build, hone & finesse your presentation in the comfort of your home. Surrounded by a supportive community of women.
After Shine, you'll have a polished, powerful talk under your belt, testimonials, social mentions, a video and the credentials to go after speaking slots.
The fact that it all takes place on the internet lets us bring together an incredible crew without asking you to move across the country for a month.
Now is the time to hone your skills so that when this is over you’re ready for action.
The stuff you’ll walk away with

This is not another
self-paced online course you'll never finish.
And this is not another in-person experience turned virtual overnight.
We took time and care to recraft this experience to be even more valuable than it was in-person.
You'll find and refine your voice and message. You’ll craft a compelling story and slide deck.
You'll do it all in small, high calibre groups. And you'll go through it with a pro speaker coach by your side. This means built-in community & accountability. It's as much about the curated group of women you'll meet as it is about the content.
We're less of a how-to lecture and much more hands-on. Because sure, you can read a book about speaking. You can listen to someone explain how to do it. But actually doing it is totally different.
Our program culminates in one digital speaker showcase & conference.
And like a college scout watching a high-school basketball game sourcing up-and-coming talent, we'll be inviting conference organizers to watch you.

Frequently asked questions
What is the cost?
Attending is $950 USD, though we do have four scholarships available (and possibly more depending on sponorship support) which covers the cost of registration.
What’s Shine’s mission?
Ultimately, our mission is to elevate the voices of those who don’t readily raise their hands to speak or aren’t recognized when they do.
At the highest level, this means empowering more women to get up on stage, since women are often outnumbered by men at marketing and tech conferences.
That said, we believe wholly that without intersectionality our mission falls flat. We are committed to providing a platform for those often underrepresented at conferences and events, including but not limited to trans women, femmes, other members of the LGBTQIA+ community, persons with disabilities, POC, and in particular BIPOC.
