If you are looking for a strong woman to empower the strong women (or men) at your next event, Engage has the perfect speaker for you. The Female Empowerment Speakers available on Engage span all industries and age groups, and give you plenty of options that are guaranteed to inspire your audience. Take a look at the Top 5 Female Empowerment Speakers on Engage:

5. Mallory Brown

Mallory Brown is a traveller, humanitarian, and filmmaker who has made it her life's mission to empower women around the world. Throughout her travels to over 50 countries, Brown has spoken on the power of empathy and the ability that each and every person has to truly change the lives of others. Currently, Brown is working towards completing a global marathon where she is travelling the world to “Walk a Mile” in the shoes of impoverished women in different countries. During her marathon, Brown is telling the stories of the women she meets, celebrating the diversity of the communities she travels to, and donating to local charities. Brown has been in the social-impact space since 2010 and has changed lives all over the world, so she is great for any event that aims to inspire entrepreneurs to stop holding themselves back and take the leap to make a true difference in the world. Her warm nature and bright smile is sure to captivate any audience.

4. Jen Bricker-Bauer

Jen Bricker-Bauer is a defier of all odds. Bricker-Bauer was born without legs, but she was taught by her adoptive family at a young age that she should “Never Say Can’t,” and she has not looked back since. Bricker-Bauer turned her disadvantage into an advantage and was able to follow the inspiration of Olympic gold-medalist Dominique Mocenau to compete against able bodied athletes in power tumbling. After winning the state championship in power tumbling, Bricker-Bauer discovered that Mocenau, her long-time idol, was actually her sister. Bricker-Bauer has taken her talents on an international tour with Britney Spears and to shows in Las Vegas, New York and Dubai. Booking Bricker-Bauer through Engage will give your event a speaker whose almost unbelievable life story will have everyone in attendance leaving ready to conquer anything that comes their way.

3. Maria Taylor

Maria Taylor is an ESPN commentator, and her talents are well known by sports fans everywhere. She is a familiar face at football and basketball games at both the professional and collegiate levels. For seven seasons, Taylor has graced the sidelines and the studio as a host, analyst, and reporter, and has been a part of many of football and basketball’s greatest moments. Some of her credits are SEC Network, ESPN’s College Gameday, and the Women’s NCAA Final Four. Before her ascent into broadcasting stardom, Taylor was a collegiate dual-sport athlete at the University of Georgia, While playing both volleyball and basketball for the Bulldogs, Taylor won multiple All-SEC honors and played on the USA A2 National Volleyball Team. Taylor is the founder of a non-profit, The Winning Edge Leadership Academy, that works with women and ethnic minorities to help them break into the sports industry. Anyone who has tuned into ESPN’s College Gameday will tell you that Taylor is nothing but entertaining, and with her passion for empowering women to achieve their goals and break the glass ceiling, Taylor is the perfect choice for your next event.

2. Amy Trask

Amy Trask is nothing if not a trailblazer, though she does not necessarily view herself as the groundbreaker everyone else believes she is. Trask joined the Raiders organization as an intern in law school, and worked her way up the ladder to become the NFL’s first female front-office executive. Trask was named by the NFL as one of the Top 100 Greatest Game Changers in NFL History. After retiring from the Raiders organization, Trask authored a memoir titled “You Negotiate Like a Girl: Reflections on a Career in the National Football League,” and has worked in both philanthropic roles and new business ventures. Currently, she also serves as a football analyst for CBS Sports Network. Trask spent 30 years dominating in a male-dominated field, though she will tell you that she never spent a moment thinking about her gender. Her strength, her spunk, and her years of experience will empower your female audience, whether the event centers around the sports industry or not.

1. Bethany Hamilton

Bethany Hamilton became a household name with her inspirational story that is filled with faith, hope and a love of life. When Hamilton was 13 years old and pursuing her professional surfing career, she lost her left arm in a shark attack. However, this was not an ending for Hamilton, who was back in the water just one month after the attack. Hamilton won her first national title just two years later. Her autobiography and the films Soul Surfer and Unstoppable have touched the hearts of people all over the world, and she continues to inspire through her Beautifully Flawed Foundation, which works to provide hope for amputees and youth. Now, Hamilton is both a wife and a mother to three beautiful children. Her experiences are truly remarkable and will restore hope and faith to anyone who gets to hear her share them.

Should I book a speaker for my event?

In today’s age, our attention span is dwindling. A technological era in which we can get rushes of dopamine to our brain in a couple seconds by scrolling on a variety of social media platforms has created an atmosphere where we quickly become uninterested by something if we are not immediately curious to hear more. In an event, this means being able to grab your audience’s attention immediately and pull them in, wanting to hear more. This is where hiring a speaker for an event comes into play. The speakers that are on Engage’s website are some of the most high-class, interesting stories you will ever hear. Engage has the stories and speakers that will hold your audience captive with interest.
