Renegade Management - Speakers and Entertainers


Julie Power wrote an interesting article in The Age last weekend, which has sparked some valuable discussion within the speaking industry.

Renegade's aim is to ensure the speakers we recommend are the best fit for the conference brief. Some companies are making sure that the inclusion of females speakers is part of that brief as they acknowledge a well-balanced program adds legitimacy and relevance to their audience.

Certainly, there are still many Australian companies and Associations that need to be mindful of gender equality when planning a conference program, and the example that some male speakers have set is a good start in encouraging clients to include more female speakers on the conference platform.

Gender Equality

Renegade has the pleasure of curating Conference Programs in Australia and overseas, and recently we have noted many male international speakers make a point of not accepting a speaking engagement unless there is at least one female on the platform.

By no means tokens, female speakers in Australia are not a rare breed and our clients are spoilt for choice. I was going to list some of our favourites – but discovered that we have 600 female speakers in our database – just too many to list. Feel free to call us for ideas for your next event.
