Speaker Information

The mission of Sterling Women is to showcase women in business in Loudoun County and beyond. Our featured speakers are women entrepreneurs leading multimillion-dollar businesses in the county who share their career path, challenges along the way and how they overcame them. Occasionally, we will have a speaker tell their inspirational story on women's health or women's leadership. 



While we would feature your name, company (if app) and short bio, please note your speech is not an opportunity to promote a business or book, political or charity discussion or fundraiser, or conduct a training class or seminar. We want to hear your story! We will ask for your speech in advance to determine if it fits within the guidelines. We strongly recommend AV and Powerpoint is not used.

There is no monetary compensation or travel reimbursement for selected speakers and the presentation should be a total of 20 minutes, including time for Q&A at the end.

The speaker’s lunch is complimentary – you will be seated at a head table with Sterling Women Host, Cindy Battino.  We will register you (please advise any serious dietary restrictions).

Speaker is permitted to place marketing materials in the goody bags and offer a door prize. While we’ll send the contact list post-lunch, we do not offer the attendee email addresses to anybody due to complaints of spamming.

We strongly recommend potential speakers attend one Sterling Women luncheon (at their cost) to get an idea of the event logistics and speaker topic.
