WomenPresent will be a great tool for anyone looking for female voices, to feature on stage at industry events. Granular level search functionality will help surface speakers with the expert knowledge that you need for specific discussions, which will in turn, help to shine a light on female talent that is not regularly seen or heard from.
Being able to recommend speakers, and highlight them for specific skills and experience, will be a great way to encourage more women to get involved in opportunities that they might otherwise forsake in favour of other responsibilities. This will also encourage the huge numbers of men in senior positions within the industry, to put their female colleagues forward for opportunities that they might typically fill themselves. It will become a really useful tool in championing excellence and enabling men and women to support each others as peers, within the industry.
As an event organiser, you always want to showcase the best of the best, and you're often looking for new and fresh voices to engage your audience. Sometimes you need to dig about in less obvious places to find those things. WomenPresent will help surface that talent in a transparent and accessible way. Bring it on!"
