Women, please take the stage.

Women, please take the stage. 1707 2560 I Need A Speaker

Yesterday I heard a disturbing statistic. I learned that approximately 70 percent of conference speakers are men. Seventy percent. Wow.

Although I’m sure these speakers have a great message, I know that women also have inspiring and useful information to share. Let’s make room on the stage, please, to welcome more diverse speakers.

I Need A Speaker is on a mission to amplify new voices. Please encourage the women you know to learn more about I Need A Speaker and how their voices can be heard. Audiences are waiting for you.

Celebrating St. Paddy’s Day: kissing the Blarney Stone and Irish advice on speaking

Celebrating St. Paddy’s Day: kissing the Blarney Stone and Irish advice on speaking 1920 2560 I Need A Speaker

I’ve spent a lot of time in Ireland, yet it never seems like enough. I miss the people, the scenery, the craic (pronounced “crack,” it means fun), and, of course, the advice.

I’m among the throngs of people who have climbed the steps of Blarney Castle and stretched backward to kiss the Blarney Stone. Legend claims that kissing the Blarney Stone will give the kisser the gift of eloquence.

Fueled with confidence and the blessing of better speech, people may benefit from some of the Irish sayings below:

  1. Who keeps his tongue keeps his friends.
  2. A kind word never broke anyone’s mouth.
  3. It is often that a person’s mouth broke his nose.
  4. Every St. Patrick’s Day every Irishman goes out to find another Irishman to make a speech to.

We love this traditional advice! What’s your favorite Irish saying?

We can all use a good laugh … and we know just the person to make it happen

We can all use a good laugh … and we know just the person to make it happen 1707 2560 I Need A Speaker

One of our favorite speakers recently celebrated reaching 3.3 million views of her Dry Bar Comedy Special. Congratulations, Karen!

A former attorney, Karen Morgan has been making audiences laugh for years. After a year of public health restrictions related to COVID, we need a laugh more than ever.

Karen is frequently hired by companies that add humor to employee events, bringing relief to anxious and overworked staff. Karen also helps national, regional, and local nonprofits recover some of the fundraising dollars they lost over the past year – while having fun.

We’re proud that she’s one of our speakers, and we thank her for adding some levity when we need it most. Thanks, Karen!

Does your group need a dose of comedy? Contact and book Karen through our directory.
