Did you know that women remain significantly underrepresented in the events industry?

Studies show that only 24% of keynote speakers at global events are women, and this disparity extends across various industries. For instance, in technology conferences, only 18% of keynote speakers are women and women of color represent less than 10% of all speakers at major conferences. The time for change is now.

At Mic Drop Workshop, we’re dedicated to addressing these disparities head-on. From tackling the gender gap in speaking invitations, where female speakers receive 25% fewer opportunities than their male counterparts, to challenging the underrepresentation of women in leadership conferences (only 12% of speakers), we’re driving meaningful progress.

Join us in our endeavor to reshape the events industry and create spaces where every voice is heard and valued.

HI I'M JESS ekstrom!

My first public speaking gig was for a slice of pizza and now I'm making 7-figures a year as a thought leader, keynote speaker, and author.

Everything I create is to help you tell & sell your story…so you can make a living and make a difference at the same time. Let me be straight with you – I’m not that perfectly filtered influencer on the internet that promises you the world and doesn’t follow through after that credit card is swiped.

My mission at Mic Drop Workshop is to guarantee you two things 👇

Enough about my story, let’s help you monetize your story by becoming a paid public speaker!
