We are looking for women worldwide to start a circle. Learn more & apply.
We believe unleashing the brilliance of women’s voices is the key to positive change in our world.
Join the Movement
We have WomanSpeak Circles across the United States and in 7 countries.
And we’re growing. Fast.
Our founder KC Baker has taught and spoken about this unique body of work at the United Nations, Women@Microsoft, TEDxWomen, and more.
Women around the world are wanting support in speaking up and leading as who they truly are, rather than feeling like they have to suppress a part of themselves in order to fit into a masculine model of leadership.
The time for feminine-centered public speaking and leadership training that understands the genius of the feminine mind, and how it works, has come.
Our world has never been more ready, or in such deep need, of full throttle expression of feminine intelligence.
We are here and ready to meet that need.
Why WomanSpeak Matters
For too long, public speaking trainings have fostered a masculine model of what leadership and professionalism looks and feels like. This can have a detrimental effect on the self-esteem of women and girls who desire to speak up and lead.
This sparks feelings of self doubt, a lack of valuing the wisdom within, and a resistance to speaking up. It erodes a woman’s sense of inner freedom to lead and share her mind publicly.
We specifically provide an alternative for women to harness the power of their feminine energy, rather than hide or deny it, as they speak up to lead and effect change.
Be fully who you are, as you stand up to speak, lead and change our world.
HOW IS WOMANSPEAK DIFFERENT?
First of all, we do things differently around here.
We believe that women’s power lives in their connection to their bodies and to nature, so we integrate movement, meditation and time in nature into our curriculum.
It is from this place of deep, soulful connection to our truth that we then begin the task of clarifying our messages and standing up to speak.
For too long, public speaking trainings have fostered a masculine model of what leadership and professionalism looks and feels like.
This can have a detrimental effect on the self-esteem of women and girls who desire to speak up and lead. They look around at masculine leaders (male and female) and subconsciously think to themselves, “I can’t be a leader because I don’t look or feel like that.” Or, “I have to hide or suppress parts of myself in order to speak up and be taken seriously.”
This sparks feelings of self-doubt, a lack of valuing the wisdom within, and a resistance to speaking up. It erodes a woman’s sense of inner freedom to lead and share her mind publicly.
WHY IS WOMANSPEAK SO EFFECTIVE?
WomanSpeak Circles are led with true celebration and support.
The women celebrate and support each other in speaking up and exercising leadership & power in their careers.
WomanSpeak addresses the unique fears and doubts women have about sharing their voices.
Women feel safe to fully be themselves, to be seen and heard, and to share their ideas.
Women and their voices blossom in this kind of environment and culture.
HOW DOES WOMANSPEAK WORK?
Consistent Practice Matters
WomanSpeak Circles consist of local, ongoing, bi-monthly public speaking gatherings.
They are designed to offer places for consistent practice, which is the key to becoming a powerful public speaker and for developing an authentic voice of leadership.
Imagine a transformational Toastmasters for women that has a rockin’ fun & supportive community and a lot of emphasis on speaking authentically, effectively, and from the heart.
Empowering Young Women
The best part about WomanSpeak is that when a woman invests in her voice by becoming a WomanSpeak member, she also invests in the voice of a girl.
A portion of the Initiation Fee to join WomanSpeak funds GirlSpeak, a program supporting teenage girls around the world in public speaking training and leadership development.
In leading our Circle for the last many of months, I have been blown away with the results the women in my Circle are experiencing during the evening and… the ripple effects of the techniques through the rest of their personal and professional lives is profound. I just want every woman I know to experience what we are experiencing.Chantal Roelofs
WHAT WOMEN THINK
Because I’m pioneering a new concept in a very set industry, it can be frustrating trying to explain my philosophy and methods to those whose minds are set. In WomanSpeak there is a grace where I feel comfortable expanding and playing with different ideas and words. Speaking out loud to others enables me to fine tune not only presentations but my day to day talk track.
These circles are great for getting me in my body and connected to my message. That’s good! Because that’s where my truth is and the story begins. I have found when I stand before my circle members feeling free to speak and flow it anchors to my memory and ready for recall. It’s a whole-person experience. And it’s upping my game and giving me the confidence to be more brave and bold.
In the WomanSpeak Circle, I have discovered not only am I a new segment in an old standard, but I am starting a much bigger movement.Teresa Rodden
Joining Women’s Speak is the best decision I have made for my business. Since I have joined, I have accepted speaking engagements at the Lincoln Memorial, started doing webinars, and turned around my 10% conversion rate for workshops to 100% in five months.
Although, I had been live streaming for almost a year when I joined, I wanted to propel my speaking to the next level and knew that I needed training. At the meetings, I have learned to use my nerves as a life force in my speaking, to connect with my audience and to engage them from an abundant heart.
Whether you are a female entrepreneur or just looking to increase your confidence, Women’s Speak is an integral part of evolving as a woman.Cordelia Gaffar
I’ve always struggled with opening up in a group. Being vulnerable and the center of attention is a big issue with me. Being in around the kind lovely ladies in WomanSpeak San Diego has allowed me to have my voice back. I have opened up more and it feels really good. I’ve realized that I do have something to say and most importantly, people want to hear me. Angela our leader, is so positive and gently nudges us on, which is something I need. My biggest accomplishment so far is feeling more confident and vocal not just at WomanSpeak but at other groups and everyday life. It’s so liberating. Thank you Angela and WomanSpeak.Denise Briggs
I joined WomanSpeak because I wanted to enhance my ability to impactfully share my message with others and to have the confidence and motivation to seek out opportunities to do so. Through WomanSpeak I am quickly gaining confidence, tools, amazing friendships, and actively lining up speaking opportunities. WomanSpeak is a powerful program designed to bring forth the voices that will change our world for the better… and oh boy, do we need that!April Gallagher
I have been an educator, trainer and speaker for many years, involved in so many platforms to better my technique, be more magnetic, speak to inspire, get the right formula, etc, etc. And frankly, it has been great but exhausting. It wasn’t until I came to Woman Speak that I felt for the first time in my life that I could sit with all those valuable tools, give myself permission to keep only what works for me, let go of what doesn’t and stay so true to myself. Authentic and even vulnerable when it comes up. What a relief!! I feel seen for my brilliance, not for the script that I have perfectly crafted. Im still working on it, but I do feel the incredible shift on stage, with my clients even in my conversations with my teenage daughter. I am amazed at how the meetings flow from one incredible story to another, bringing so much growth in so many levels, plus the beauty of the sisterhood that connects us all, during the meeting as well as outside of them. I am forever grateful to be a part of WomanSpeak, looking forward to more!Claudia Castillo Holley
WomanSpeak allowed me the space and support to own my wisdom, trust my voice, and embrace my essence. I gained the clarity and confidence I needed to share my unique message in whatever venue Life offers, from the dinner party to the storytelling stage. An incredibly divine experience!Nicki Peasley
As a manager in the high tech industry in Silicon Valley, I often find myself working amongst men in technology who treat less technical roles with lack of respect (a challenge for the only 19% of women who are in technology compared to the 81% of men), and therefore find myself holding my voice back. I enrolled in KC Baker’s work because I know my value and uniqueness in what I bring to the industry, but struggled with my communication in sharing my voice. Coming back to the work this week has been effortless for me to share my ideas and voice, and I am surprised by how quickly I was able to implement KC’s teachings! Thank you KC, I am eternally grateful.Sophia Eng
I joined WomanSpeak Circles because I knew that my utter terror of public speaking (and that’s not an exaggeration) would hold me back in the future, and had caused me significant anxiety in the past. I had absolutely no idea that the Circle would help me in so many other ways. In just three meetings, I am amazed at the change in myself, that I also see reflected in our other members. I am in awe of the wisdom of these women; both Chantal and my fellow Circle members. I have learned so much about the way women can work together, support each other and heal each other. I have laughed, cried and been utterly moved by the stories and wisdom that is shared each Circle. Although I am still very nervous, I am so excited when I get to attend a Circle, and I am so looking forward to learning more and more. I am stunned by how far I have come in such a short time and therefore can now look forward at the next topics that we are working on. I absolutely love our Circle and I am so grateful for the support and encouragement I receive every meeting, and get to give in return. Can’t recommend it highly enough.Sian Marta
