The Speaker Directory

An online catalog of speakers

Hey there lady,

I see you.  You’ve been working hard to get your foot in the door as a speaker.  You’ve been searching for creative conferences, connecting with event hosts and completing speaker applications.

But you’re stuck.

⇒ You spend a lot of time searching for speaking opportunities.

⇒ You’re intimidated by the more experienced speakers who are speaking at all the events.

⇒ Completing an application seems like you’re completing an obstacle course.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could...

⇒ Be noticed for a speaking opportunity?

⇒ Join the “elite few” as a speaker?

⇒ Showcase your previous speaking engagements so hosts can know your capabilities?

⇒ Locate upcoming conferences to open new opportunities?

⇒ Find an online space where hosts can search for newer speakers who haven’t been given that opportunity yet?

⇒ Be notified about the latest speaking opportunities in your industry

⇒ Be given a chance to share your message with other entrepreneurs, even as a newer speaker?

Say no more, friend.  I’ve got something that can help you.

Hey I'm Makeda!

I’m the founder of The Conference Connection, the entrepreneur’s guide to conferences, retreats and workshops.

The Conference Connection 2.0 was always about the speaker; empowering and helping her (or him) land the right speaking opportunity.  I wanted to create a space for new and newer speakers to showcase who they are as an entrepreneur and the message that they can share at events.  The Speaker Directory gives new speakers permission to reach for their speaking goals.

Personally, I’m a Caribbean transplant currently residing in South Jersey with my musician hubby and our three boys, Anwar, Ashur & Amare (4 months old).  I love a good, well-done steak, pistachio ice-cream sundae with hot fudge and gummy bears (I know!) and all things pertaining to digital organization!
