True Colours Keynotes (Women’s Speaker Bureau) has been launched to keep up with the demand of sourcing outstanding women speakers and mentors.
Up until now, finding women keynote speakers has been a common grievance with many conference organisers, CEO’s, PCO’s and Marketing Managers, due to the majority of speakers on most bureaus’ books being male.
However those days are now gone thanks to True Colours Keynotes which is the creation and passion of Debbie Carr.
Carr, who has been in the professional speaking industry since 2004 saw a need to create a speaking bureau representing only women speakers when she became acutely aware of the lack of female speakers on her books, and that of her competitors.
With a list of expert women speakers including business, entrepreneurs, authors, celebrities, indigenous and corporate speakers, there is no excuse not to have great women speakers on the event programme.
Ms Carr, who is also the owner of a boutique recruitment firm knows first-hand the problems faced by many female executives and has a vision to create a source of information for women who are climbing the corporate ladder, including mentoring, exclusive networking events to meet the speakers and access to some of Australia’s top business coaches.
The bureau will address the most common problem that Ms Carr hears ‘there are not many female speakers to choose from’. ‘Well, actually there are’, she says.
