greater leadership, influence and impact.
At WomanSpeak, we provide practical tools and the fun, supportive community you need to become a powerful, authentic speaker & leader.
WomanSpeak is where women learn to lead and speak with influence and impact. WomanSpeak Circles consist of local public speaking gatherings which are designed to offer places for consistent practice.
Consistency of practice is the key to becoming a powerful and effective public speaker.
The members of a WomanSpeak Circle can attend circles twice per month to practice and deepen their own artistry of standing up, sharing their ideas and speaking their truth.
Imagine a transformational Toastmasters for women that has a rockin’ fun & supportive community with tons of emphasis on speaking authentically, effectively, and from the heart.
One of the best parts about WomanSpeak is that when you invest in yourself, you also invest in a young girl. A portion of the WomanSpeak program initiation fee funds a girl’s tuition to go through GirlSpeak – for free.
Just imagine the difference a GirlSpeak experience will make on young girls lives – learning to overcome fear early on will create powerful future feminine leaders.
In leading our Circle for the last couple 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
When you join a WomanSpeak Circle you will learn how to:
Transform fear around public speaking into authentic confidence.
Speak effectively and powerfully in any situation.
Powerfully deliver your message in a way that deeply moves your listeners.
Own the value of what you have to say and the freedom to share it fully.
Captivate your audience with a spellbinding story.
Get clear on exactly what you want to say and then deliver it clearly.
Identify what you stand for and convey it with conviction.
Clarify your ideas in a way that cultivates authentic engagement and inspires action.
Speak confidently and authentically in front of anyone: peers, an audience, your boss, in meetings, with men co-workers, interviews… you name it.
Anywhere and anytime you need to trust your voice and deliver your ideas, we’ll help you do it powerfully and memorably!
And that’s not all..
In becoming a member of a WomanSpeak Circle and going twice per month to a circle in your local area, you can become a Certified WomanSpeak Speaker – a powerful designation for your resume and a mark of personal achievement and triumph.
It’s time for a public speaking training that supports women in harnessing the power of their feminine energy, and in being fully who they are, as they stand up to speak, lead and change our world.
WHAT MAKES WOMANSPEAK UNIQUE?
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.
I have to say that I wouldn’t nail Fox News Channel hits each week without her work! She helped me discover what was holding me back, worked me through it almost overnight, and truly helped me capture the essence of who I am and express it. I’m definitely a fan!Kym McNicholas
WHY IS WOMANSPEAK SO EFFECTIVE?
WomanSpeak Circles are filled with true celebration, support and fun.
The women you share your circle with will always celebrate you and your voice.
We literally help women to re-wire their nervous systems so that speaking up becomes an experience of safety, power, joy and freedom.
At WomanSpeak, we are not looking for what’s “wrong” in your speaking and how to “fix” it. Instead, we look for what is already brilliant and then, using our proven, unique public speaking techniques, we explore how to make it even more amazing, effective, and powerful.
This is a departure from traditional public speaking training programs. And it works. Women feel SAFE to fully be themselves, to be seen and heard, and to speak their truth and share their ideas. Women and their voices blossom in this kind of environment and culture.
The best bonus about WomanSpeak is that women form wonderful, supportive friendships with others in their circles.
These women cheer each other on as they go out in the world speaking up in their communities, their work, and on public stages.
If you are unfamiliar with the founder KC Baker’s teachings, then we encourage you to visit her free program here and to get a glimpse into the wonderful world of WomanSpeak. One other bonus from joining a WomanSpeak Circle is receiving members-only special pricing on KC’s highly renowned courses.
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 WomanSpeak would help me in so many other ways.Sian Marta

I have witnessed & experienced healing within my fellow WomanSpeak circle ladies & within myself. Being able to share with everyone, as well as supporting each other when we feel nervous or unsure of ourselves really is therapeutic as well as confidence building. I just love our little group, and I love the wisdom & heart that our Circle Leader brings.Cassie Hancock

HEAR WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE WOMANSPEAK TEACHINGS:
KC’s work changed my world. I wanted to learn to speak publicly, to support my book, my businesses and my world-changing dreams. What happened was nothing short of an internal revolution. I connected to my voice, to my message, to my compassion and understanding. KC lovingly curated and encouraged my soul’s flight through voice and the power of speaking out. I overcame my fear of forgetting the words -and having lived with memory loss, this is so liberating. KC taught me how to make my message spread worldwide through stories which are loved and re-told. I was welcomed into an amazing community of women and I am so grateful to know KC and to have benefited from her wisdom and work.Grace Quantock
After over 30 years of giving speeches, I’d stopped speaking because it so terrified me…I just couldn’t do it anymore. Every time I got in front of an audience, I wanted to throw up in sheer terror.
Yesterday, I just gave my very first speech in 2 years…and because of my work with you, it was a totally different experience. Everything you said REALLY worked. I had a great time up on stage for the first time EVER! I got so many standing ovations. I can’t thank you enough for what you did for me.Barbara Stanny
Like many women, I was afraid to use my voice. Sure I would talk, talk, talk, but I one day realized I wasn’t actually expressing myself. I was simply filling a void with what felt like inconsistent rambling. So I made a decision to do something about it. After asking around, all roads led to KC Baker. And I’m so grateful they did. She gave me tools and techniques to allow my voice to continue to grow stronger, no matter the circumstance or public setting.Victoria Prozan McGlinn
I thought I just wanted help polishing up a talk that I’d already worked on, but I ended up with a) a much different, much better talk, b) a lot of important practical coaching on stage presence & connecting with audience, and most importantly, c) a way to make my talk really MY talk – much more personal and therefore far more powerful. This work has made it easy for me to expand my speaking engagements (I landed the keynote address for the East Coast Bioneers Conference – Magic!) and to develop more content and presence around the same core ideas. I now have a book contract, bigger and better consulting engagements, and clear plans for expanding my work in related areas.Katherine Collins
I am now selling higher end 3-month group programs of $5000 per person – due to the credibility I have gained through speaking.Jennie Harland-Khan
