SPEAK! Canada Finale in Saskatoon
Cohort 1 in partnership with the University of Saskatchewan, Edwards School of Business.
SPEAK! Canada is anything but typical! A national program designed to provide professional women with a proven process and platform, encouraging them to speak clearly, concisely and confidently to move as leaders with impact as they consider these questions:
Who am I as a leader?
What's important to me?
What do I stand for?
How do I want to be known in the world, remembered?
What am I up to in the world?
What is the impact I'm looking to make with how I lead and show-up, everyday?
The public declaration of what a leader is deeply committed to and ready for next is one of the most powerful leadership tools that we have ever witnessed. PowHERhouse works closely with female executives and entrepreneurs ready to grow, emerging leaders, innovators and change-makers who are ready to make an impact in the world and SPEAK about it! Since October 2015, over 200+ women have been put on-stage by PowHERhouse, leading us now to SPEAK! Canada.
Activating, Accelerating + Amplifying leaders for world-class impact.

The value I received was EPIC ...
"I knew if I was going to successfully execute strategy and enable transformation, I needed to improve my ability to connect with people and clearly articulate the destination and vision of how to get there. SPEAK! Canada taught more than the fundamentals of speaking effectively. Charlene provided performance coaching that challenged me to align purpose and passion with a clear and concise message, delivered with confidence and conviction. For someone that said she would never be a dynamic speaker, the value I received was EPIC and is the start of a new love affair with speaking for impact." - Marianne Bell
SPEAK! Canada was such a powerful experience for me.
"Not only was I inspired by Charlene and the other women I met there, I was motivated to share my story to help others. Over the course of the 6 weeks I learned to appreciate that if I take the time to organize and practice, I will be able to communicate my story with confidence and clarity." Cathy Hicks
SPEAK! Canada offers three tracks of executive learning opportunities:
We are pleased to work with individual women from across Canada, entrepreneurs, change-makers, and community leaders from coast-to-coast through our blended learning online program that can be participated in from anywhere. Six modules of learning over eight weeks for an investment of $597.
We are also pleased to work with academic and corporate partners across Canada:
Since October 2015, 150+ women have been put on-stage by SPEAK! Canada in our PowHERtalks National Speaker Series. These women were encouraged to share their story, the impact they want to make in the world, and clarify their ASK; what they need to move forward as leaders. What quickly became evident:
Women have something to say, and they're ready to be heard.
As women share their story and lessons learned they role model what is possible for others and inspire hope.
Concise, focused messages delivered with energy, confidence and authenticity yield the most impact.
As a woman publicly declares who she is as a leader and what she is deeply committed to, she begins to recognize herself as the capable leader she is, ready to take the next action steps. Media is a powHERful mirror.
What women are saying about SPEAK! Canada
I had no idea what I wanted to do in the world and how I wanted to communicate what I was up to. Char, along with PowHERhouse Media Group, gave me a platform to stand on. The SPEAK! Canada program was an amazing push forward into recognizing my voice and how much I wanted to advocate for the Oil and Gas industry AND the environment. Speaking up in the small safety net of the program gave me the confidence to start sharing with broader audiences what our oil industry has done in Canada for Canada.

What women are saying about SPEAK! Canada
My lived experience can speak to the positive impact Charlene has had on my own life and career. Without Char and PowHERhouse, I would not have been on the TEDX stage in Vancouver in October of 2016, an event which remains a significant highlight for me. She has managed to galvanize a vast tribe of not only strong women but powHERful speakers. I adore this women!
I have been honored to work with Charlene through the LEAP Learning Lab, SPEAK program. Charlene’s facilitation of the program was well organized, communicated and gave me a series of tangible results that have been powerful in my own business. Most importantly, she creates an environment of comfort and support, empowering participants to grow themselves and their business. She has been a fantastic mentor, offering constructive, honest feedback. She has a brilliant business mindset and I would encourage others to take the opportunity to work with her.
- Kelly Beattie, Transformational Change Agent, Facilitator & Keynote Speaker
When I first came across SPEAK! Canada, I really didn’t see how it would benefit me since I have taken several speaking programs in the past and have been speaking for many years. Once I was in the program, I realized it was unlike any other program I had experienced.
Charlene was masterful at drawing out greater clarity within me, really nailing it, resulting in a crystal-clear message. The intimate nature, one-on-one attention and peer support fostered a quick learning curve and was highly effective in getting almost immediate feedback.
If you know Charlene, she does everything with purpose and with the end in mind. Upon completion of SPEAK, I ended up several deliverables that I have been able to implement immediately.
Thank-you Charlene, and thank you SPEAK! Canada!
