How does it work?


“Being represented on Inspiring Speakers has been such a game-changer for me and my organisation. It has given so much profile to GirlBoss NZ and our mission of empowering young women. It has given me so much confidence in my own speaking ability, and I just love sharing the work that we do with so many diverse audiences. The speaking fees have really helped me enabled me to continue my community work and I just can not express how much of a difference the extra funding has made to me and my organisation. It means a lot to me that I am speaking at these events and I really appreciate how you are championing youth voice in the conference space.”
Alexia Hilbertidou, CEO of Girlboss NZ
