Hi I'm Jess! I started Mic Drop Workshop with the mission to get more women speakers in keynote spots. As my speaking career has developed, I'm continuously the token woman in lineups and rarely see an even representation of women voices on stage.
The good news is audiences have started to notice the lack of women speakers and are putting pressure on conferences to put more women in the lineup. However, there aren't as many women out there who believe they can be speakers as much as there are men (shocker right?). So my goal for this workshop is to get women feeling confident in their story in a way where they can make an impact and an income through public speaking.
While also running my business, Headbands of Hope, I speak professionally over 40 times a year to campuses, corporations and conferences. I have keynoted at Leadercast Live, SAS Global Forum, Women's Business Summit, Newell Brands, Citrix and more. My is focus is on empowering more women to take the public speaking stage through establishing a deeper relationship with with their own unique experiences.
I'm totally transparent about my path to success (including the many mistakes she made) because I want to paint the real picture for you. I believe that you shouldn't have to choose between making a living and making a difference and I'm passionate about helping others find those collision points and live a more fun and purposeful life.
