Become a WEBO Approved Speaker

** COVID 19 SPEAKER POLICY **

Due to COVID 19, all WEBO Network programs are being held virtually and are accessible by members and non-members located across the US. As such, we are working hard to offer distinct, fresh content at each of our events. If you have spoken at a WEBO Network event in the past 6-12 months, it is unlikely you will be invited back to speak on the same topic while our events are still being held online. However, if you would like to submit applications for new or different talks, we invite you to do so.  All applications are kept in a database that is regularly reviewed by our individual chapter Managing Directors and Speaker Coordinators. Your application does not guarantee an invitation to speak.

WEBO is dedicated to the professional development of women entrepreneurs and business owners, and we support that development by offering speaking opportunities through presentations and workshops that can help grow our businesses and grow our members as business owners. To do that, we are seeking professionals and experts with educational platforms and hands-on learning experiences. We believe in the power of connecting through activity and experiences, and are looking for amazing presenters that can engage and educate our members with exciting content.

Speaking opportunities through WEBO Network may take place in person or virtually, at any of our chapters. Each chapter offers monthly events with one or more speakers.

Our WEBOs Learn calendar is divided into four themed quarters. They are:

  • Q1 (Jan-Mar) | Foundations of Business
  • Q2 (Apr-Jun) | Systems and Operations
  • Q3 (Jul-Sept) | Sales and Marketing
  • Q4 (Oct-Dec) | Goals and Productivity

Please take some time to fill out this speaker application carefully for EACH of the topics in your portfolio, explaining how they align with one or more of the topics listed. The WEBO leadership team will review your submissions to evaluate upcoming speaking opportunities and contact you if further information is needed. Thank you for sharing your time and talents!

Please provide a brief narrative about your background, achievements, etc. We will use this as your introduction.
List the names of organizations, event dates, and topics you have presented in the past year.
Name and contact details of someone you are comfortable with us contacting
Please provide a brief description of the topic of your presentation.
Please list 5 learning objectives attendees will learn by participating in this session.
Preference is given to presentation topics that can be shown to directly relate to one or more of our themes. However, we may choose speakers and topics at any time, regardless of theme, depending on current WEBO programs and initiatives.
Include a link to your latest speaker reel. If you don't have a reel, please record a short (2-3 minute) introduction video telling us about yourself, your topic, they key takeaways and how they relate to our quarterly theme. You can also email your speaker reel or introduction video to hello@webonetwork.com
WEBO gives preferences to those speakers and presenters who offer an experiential learning opportunity.
If my application is accepted, I, and any co-presenter, agree to meet all timelines, deadlines and standards set forth by WEBO. I agree not to change content or presenters without the written consent of PPA. I understand that I am responsible for all costs associated with the presentation, including materials, travel, hotel, and per diem. I grant WEBO the right to audiotape, videotape, photograph, distribute and/or post online the presentation and handout, for profit or otherwise.
WEBO Network does not compensate our speakers nor do we pay for travel. In order to access your expert information for our membership, we may offer video trainings in lieu of an in-person presentation.
