About

headshotMy name is Annie and I’m a market researcher. The Research Speakers Club is managed by me and run by volunteers to give our colleagues the opportunity to gain experience and become great speakers.

The club is for people who have NEVER spoken in front of an audience before. It’s for women and men in the research, data, analytics, visualization, tech, and statistics industry. It’s for introverts, extroverts, quiet people, and shy people (I feel your pain). Everyone is welcome. You will never be put on the spot in front of the group to talk or speak or comment or contribute verbally.

Most chapters meet every two months for 60 to 90 minutes which leaves time for up to three people to give a talk. In the future, we will cover specific issues such as coming up with topics, writing speaking proposals, handling unengaged audiences, and finding your niche. For specified events, we will ask experienced speakers to come and share their experiences and offer critiques of talks. Until that day, these meetings are only for people who have limited speaking experience.

You can join any of these chapters! Everyone of these people is volunteering their personal time as Chair of their chapter because they want to help.
