"What do I have to say?"

If you’ve ever thought about speaking professionally–at a conference, at work, or in any other space–but weren’t sure what you should talk about, we made this guide for you.

The best speakers know how to generate ideas over and over again. With guidance (and a little practice), you will too!

Connect with your WHY and turn that WHY into a potential topic to speak about with confidence. Then, find your audience, bring other people into your process, and share your voice widely!


"I can’t emphasize enough how helpful [Women Talk Design] was in formulating a talk. I’m looking forward to strengthening my public speaking skills this year & applying to speak at more events!"

The Find Your Talk Topic guide was first released as part of our Kickstarter campaign and over 130 speakers have already downloaded it.

Built with Experience

We built the Find Your Talk Topic guide using the same principles taught in our popular Design Your Talk Topic workshop. We’re excited to make this valuable process available to more people with this new guide.

If you want to learn through live instruction and get accountability and feedback as you work through your ideas, we recommend signing up for the workshop, which we typically run 2-3 times a year.

Design Your Talk Topic was the first short workshop we taught at Women Talk Design and over the years, we’ve worked with hundreds of speakers. Everything we’ve learned about honing in on topics that matter has gone into this guide.
