What is #SpeakUpTour2018?

The #SpeakUpTour2018 is being headlined by Angela Lussier and it is a month-long tour of the eastern side of New England with a goal of  empowering women to speak up. We will do this through workshops, special events, and book signings.

Why are you doing it?

The tour is all about teaching women how to speak up so they can advance their career, enhance their leadership impact, and create change through their words. We have seen the power of this kind of work in our Speaker Sisterhood public speaking clubs and want to bring this work to more women.

Who is Angela?

Angela Lussier is an award-winning speaker, five-time author, two-time TEDx presenter, and CEO and founder of the Speaker Sisterhood, a network of speaking clubs that help women discover, awaken, and create their voice through the art of public speaking. Angela is the host of Claim the Stage, a public speaking podcast for women rated #1 on the inspiring podcasts list by Forbes in December 2017. She is a contributor to Huffington Post and her work has been featured on ABC, NBC, Forbes, Virgin, and Entrepreneur. Her motto:  Stop waiting. Start creating.

What will the workshops teach?

They will offer the specific and effective support women need to:

  • See themselves as “qualified” and “worthy” to speak 
and lead
  • Feel confident representing expertise and value
  • Cultivate the presence needed to command and persuade others
  • Gain skill in developing compelling content
  • Develop the ability to think on their feet
  • Support and encourage other women colleagues interested in speaking
