Note: the trainers for the individual session are chosen based on their strengths as speakers and may change. The trainers are speakers from the KeyNote Women directory.

In addition to the sessions the trainees are given an opportunity to practice their speaking at the learning circles and during individual work with mentors. We offer all our trainees the supportive community of their peers, trainees from the previous course cohorts, and seasoned speakers ready to share their experience. We encourage the atmosphere of camaraderie and open discussion.

The finishing line of the program are two rounds of live auditions. Each trainee is expected to perform a 5- minute speech at round one as a conclusion to the programme. Those who do best at round 1 will have the chance to enter round 2 to give a more elaborate 10-minute speech and compete for a chance to enter our directory of KeyNote Professional Women Speakers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I make a payment for the course in instalments?

A: Yes, you can. The program fee can be paid in two (2) instalments yet has to be covered in full not later than one week before the program start. The dates and amount of each payment are negotiable. Please, contact our training coordinator at info@keynotewomen.com for a personal instalment plan.

Q: Can this course be attended fully virtually?

A: Unfortunately, no. Keynote Speakers’ Training is delivered in a hybrid mode at the moment, and the majority of sessions must be attended in person to maximize the learning. Keynote speaking is a skill that can only be mastered via real time practice. If you are currently not able to commit to in-person sessions, we suggest you wait a bit for our virtual course release.

Q: I’m planning to travel/move in 2023, thus will miss a part of the course. Can I still sign up and be sure I get the maximum from the training?

A: This will depend entirely on the dates of your travel/moving. There are practical workshops at the course which are virtually impossible to cover with offline materials thus must be attended in person. If you miss those, you inevitably miss a part of knowledge provided at the course. Please contact our coordinator via info@keynotewomen.com to better know how the dates of your trips align with the course schedule.

Q: Can I talk to someone who has already completed the program?

A: Absolutely! We’re blessed with a very supportive community of alumni who are always ready to share.

Q: Do I get a completion certificate by the end of the program?

A: Yes, we give completion certificates to all program participants who attend 70% of sessions (8 sessions) and complete round 1 of the final auditions.

Q: Can Keynote issue a formal invoice so I could be reimbursed by my employer?

A: Yes, we issue invoices for corporate reimbursement upon request. To receive it, make an inquiry to our coordinator at info@keynotewomen.com.
