The hottest event on our calendar, experience our biannual Speed Coaching event. This event offers a valuable opportunity for WST members to join a panel of experienced entrepreneurs and business leaders and offer your expert advice to women looking for solutions and ideas for their business. As a member, you are welcome to serve on the panel or present an issue you are facing to the panel. You do not need to be a member to register as a presenter for this event.

This event will pair WST member mentors with women entrepreneurs and leaders (also known as presenters) seeking help with specific business or professional opportunities and/or challenges.

How It Works:

Each presenter will share information about her entrepreneurial or leadership issue with a panel of 3-5 WST member mentors. Mentors will then offer feedback and advice to the presenter and brainstorm ideas and solutions with her. Each presenter presents once to a group of mentors for a 30 minute individual session. Presenters will be assigned a time to arrive to present to their mentors within the 4:00 to 6:00PM time frame prior to the event.

The event is open to presenters and mentors only and will be followed by a mixer that is open to event participants and all WST members. Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available, and there is no charge for the event.

As a Women Standing Together Member:

If you welcome the opportunity to share your expertise in a more intimate setting than our roundtable luncheons generally allow, then we encourage you to sign up to be a mentor. You should be enthusiastic about participating on a 3-5 person panel and offering objective, specific, and actionable feedback to four different presenters.

Information for Potential Presenters:

If you are a woman entrepreneur or leader with an amazing opportunity and/or a challenge you are wrestling with and would like to brainstorm options and solutions with a panel of experienced women business entrepreneurs and leaders, this event is for you!

You do NOT need to be a member of Women Standing Together but do need to be comfortable with submitting some business information ahead of time and sharing your entrepreneurial or leadership issue with the WST member mentors. We are looking for women entrepreneurs or leaders who are growth-focused; bold, joyful, and full of gumption; hungry for and open to receiving feedback; innovative and focused; and with a clear vision and business model.

If this sounds like YOU, then go ahead and register here. Once you’ve successfully registered, you will receive a form to fill out and return about your business in order to secure your spot. Please note that becoming a presenter is on a first come, first served basis, and the first 16 people who register and submit their business information will become presenters.
