What does it take to become a thought leader? To be seen as the expert or the authority in your field? What will it take to get that next round of funding? Or, more customers or partners for your business? Often, nothing more than the willingness to speak up and share your thoughts and experiences in public.
Public speaking is, and always will be, an important skill, and well worth developing. But speaker training itself is only part of the puzzle.
Bobbie Carlton will walk you through specifics on how to find and secure speaking opportunities that allow you to get more visible and move your business forward. She’ll share how she’s personally used events and public speaking to become one of the Boston startup community’s most visible women!

Bobbie Carlton, Founder of Carlton PR & Marketing, Innovation Nights and Innovation Women, has been called Boston’s Innovation Den Mother and the Startup Fairy Godmother. She’s an award-winning marketing, PR and social media professional. She speaks regularly on marketing, public speaking and women’s issues. Her humorous approach and fiery “let’s make something happen” brand is supported by the real world results she helps drive: 1200+ new products launched, $3B in funding, and 1000+ women speaking at conferences and events.
Currently a “parallel” entrepreneur (instead of a serial entrepreneur), Bobbie has spent the last 10 years building her own businesses as well as supporting client and community efforts. Previously, in addition to working with a number of Boston-area PR and marketing firms, she headed global PR at Cognos and PTC, both publicly-held enterprise software companies. In 2006 she switched gears, joining a startup focused on supporting self-esteem and positive role models for preteen girls through a social network and book series.
In 2010 she was called one of the “ten Bostonians who have done the most for the startup community”. She’s also received numerous professional awards: Marketing Sherpa Viral Campaign of the Year, several PRSA Silver Anvils, Mass High Tech All-star, Boston Business Journal Woman to Watch, PR News Gamechanger award and Boston’s “50 on Fire.”
