News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda, July 1, 2021 — WeSpeak today launched a custom online coaching platform: WeSpeak Connect. Developed as a powerful online coaching tool, the innovative project matches members with trained coaches to provide supportive, structured guidance to help women develop public-speaking skills and achieve professional goals.

The non-profit is the only organisation of its kind in Bermuda offering an innovative digital platform to connect members with specialised coaching, educational tools and a professional network to enhance presentations and public-speaking skills. The new WeSpeak Connect platform delivers coaching and supports a range of online resources and learning opportunities designed to help members learn to speak more confidently.

Membership is now available for the whole community. Whether you are new to WeSpeak, or have already completed a bootcamp or attended a WeSpeak event, everyone is welcome to join. Choose to register via any of three membership options: Classic, Own The Room or WeSpeak Champion.

Becoming a member of WeSpeak Connect connects you to a diverse group of driven female leaders committed to helping others enhance their public-speaking skills through coaching, educational opportunities, events and networking. This is a first-time opportunity to be expertly matched online with a coach selected to meet your speaking needs. Members receive benefits, including access to exclusive WeSpeak content, as well as one-on-one coaching and access to WeSpeak’s extensive executive network. Join a growing movement, which inspires women to step up, stand up and speak up in meeting rooms, boardrooms, conference rooms, or the stage—indeed, any space where they may need to find their voice.

How WeSpeak Connect works
