How (and why) to follow the @TEDWomen conference, Dec. 7 & 8

Since starting this blog about women and public speaking, I'm often asked to dig up current examples--with video--of top women speakers.  After next week, when TEDWomen convenes in Washington, DC, December 7 and 8, I expect those requests will taper off, since this conference on the future of women and girls offers an array of top women (and men) speakers.

I think you should watch this conference, and you can read more about why in my recent post, "If I were speaking at TEDWomen, here's what I'd say."

Many of the speakers' talks will be released online for free in the weeks and months to come, but you can take advantage of several options if you want to follow the conference (which is sold out for in-person attendees).  Here are your options for participating in TEDWomen this weekend:
If you're attending TEDWomen, going to a local event or hosting a local event, I'd love to feature a report from you--pictures and a sense of your experience.  Email me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz with your reports from the field!
