Bobbie Carlton


About

I have a lot of experience in PR and marketing (30+ years), particularly in startups and high growth companies. Over the past 5 years I have built a thriving business based on placing women in public speaking opportunities in order to drive visibility that helps them with their businesses and their careers. My mission is to replace all-male panels (MANels) with gender equal panels that demonstrate diversity and inclusion so we all benefit from better events. I can help you assess and improve your speaking opportunities and understand how they can drive business.

Amazing and efficient call

I needed help learning how to be a more controlled speaker, and my call with Bobbie was eye opening. The value from just a half hour of her time was incredible, and I now have enough to start putting together my speaking action plan! #awesomesauce
