This isn’t Toast Masters.

Most speaking advice out there is pretty bland and generic.

Shine Bootcamp’s monthly membership subscription & community different and better.

We cover topics that only get talked about behind closed doors or in private, invite-only communities once you’ve already ‘made it’ as a speaker.

Topics include (but aren’t limited to):
  • writing enticing speaker abstracts
  • building confidence and conquering imposter syndrome
  • wicked slide design
  • getting paid as a speaker
  • getting in with speaker bureaus & agents
  • interviews with conference organizers about what they're looking for.
  • And a ton more!
You can expect workshops, articles, Q&As, podcasts & more.

You’ll also gain access to our invite-only group. A private Slack community for members to connect & talk speaking.

  • We announce when events & conferences are looking for speakers 
  • Peer feedback on your speaker talk/abstracts
  • Celebrate your speaking wins
  • Share resources, advice, opportunities, gigs, connections, and mentorship
  • An Exclusive Speaker Slack Community
  • Workshops, articles, Q&As & podcasts
  • Interviews with conference organizers about what they're looking for
  • Announcements when conferences & events are looking for speakers

By supporting us directly through Patreon, you’re helping us grow our programming to help women speak up, gain confidence and become respected speakers

We know that if we charge market value for registration, Shine would cost 6x the price and be out of reach for many women. We want to make it accessible.

But the hard truth is: Our programs cost money. To pull off Shine takes time and resources and … funds.

If you want to support Shine without any added benefits, this tier is for you.
  • You will directly help shape the next generation of conference speakers and get more women on Stage.
  • A big, thank you from us 🙏

It’s important that Shine is available to ALL women. , no matter their skin colour, sexual orientation, or financial situation.

We often get asked: how can I help?

Here's how 👇

Sponsor someone. Gift someone a speaker scholarship. Pay it forward.

By supporting us through this tier, we will provide scholarships prioritizing underrepresented and economically disadvantaged professionals.

And here’s what we’ll do for you:
  • Include your logo front-and-center on our website.
  • A boatload of social posts and love from @shinebootcamp. Like this, this and this.
  • In-person shoutouts throughout our 6-week program.
  • Work hard to mention you in any press we get. Like this.
  • An invite to our private Slack community where you'll get recognition.
  • You'll be introduced to the individual you've supported. They'll know you supported & sponsored their speaking career.
  • You will directly help shape the next generation of conference speakers and get more women on Stage.

Thought this says 'per month' — it is a limitation of Patreon. $950 is the price per registration. If you subscribe to this tier with the intention of only sponsoring one speaker, you can cancel. OR you can go here to pay once. 
  • Include your logo front-and-center on our website.
  • A boatload of social posts and love from @shinebootcamp.

About

Help Get More Women On Stage At Conferences 

Ultimately, our mission is to elevate the voices of those who don’t readily raise their hands to speak or aren’t recognized when they do.

At the highest level, this means empowering more women to get up on stage, since women are often outnumbered by men at marketing and tech conferences.

That said, we believe wholly that without intersectionality our mission falls flat. We are committed to providing a platform for those often underrepresented at conferences and events, including but not limited to trans women, femmes, other members of the LGBTQIA+ community, persons with disabilities, POC, and in particular BIPOC.

What we know to be true:
  • they're *still* aren’t enough women on conference stages
  • women typically don’t raise their hand to speak
  • public speaking is a skill that can be learned and honed
  • feedback, practice, coaching and support are the ingredients to becoming an exceptional speaker
We got tired of being told the reason there wasn’t a gender diverse lineup is because “there aren’t enough qualified female speakers.” But rather than just talk about the problem, we wanted to be part of the solution. Shine was launched as a means to empower women with the tools, skills and confidence they need to get up on stage and share their knowledge.

We believe that everyone has something to teach and speak about, regardless of gender, skin color, age or income. But having something to speak about doesn’t necessarily translate to being an engaging, professional speaker.

We’re launching a monthly membership subscription so you can help support Shine’s mission, help us run more programs and make an even bigger impact. There are a couple of options:

  1. A monthly-coffee-for-support 
  2. A pay-it-forward program for allies. 
  3. Lastly, there is a membership for speakers which gives a ton of value:

By paying $10/month (or $100/year) you:
  •  will gain access to a growing collection of resources, advice, opportunities, gigs, connections, and mentorship. 
  • can expect workshops, articles, Q&As, podcasts & more.
  • be part of a community of underrepresented speakers. 

PS — If you're passionate about our mission you can also support us in bolder ways. Sponsor someone. Gift someone a speaker scholarship. Pay it forward. You can do that through Patreon or you can go here (for a one-time purchase). In return, we will provide barrier-free education to underrepresented and economically disadvantaged professionals.
