Why KeyNote Women Speakers?

A little about us

A podium without a single woman speaker is much too common, and KeyNote Women Speakers are on a mission to change this. We bring diversity to speaking stages across the world. Why? Research shows that group intelligence is increased when there is diversity in a room. If we look at conference topics where women are well represented – Human Resources, Marketing, and even Education – we’re still far from having balanced gender representation on stages.

Therefore, bring more diversity to your next event: On KeyNote Women Speakers Directory, you'll find handpicked talented women leaders, entrepreneurs, as well as sports and media personalities who are passionate subject-matter experts, covering topics from innovation to sexual health. KeyNote has a vast community of women speakers from across the world and it is growing by the day!

KeyNote is run by volunteers as a non-profit organisation. It started in 2017 as an initiative of PrimeTime, one of the oldest communities for business and professional women in Singapore. KeyNote’s raison d'être is simple: it is all about women supporting women. Not only do we make sure that women are more visible through our site and social media forums; we also train the next generation of KeyNote speakers.
