Below is additional information about becoming a panelist and about hosting one of our upcoming programs. What to Expect as a Panelist FountainBlue recruits senior leaders (senior-director-level-plus) from partner tech companies within Silicon Valley to participate in our monthly panel discussions. In general, the speakers are nominated by women’s group leaders from our partner companies because of their exceptional leadership skills and execution results. Our host companies and corporate partners (those who purchase a corporate pass for the year) have the first option for nominating 2-4 speakers for the year, but we also include other companies actively participating in the series. We know that our panelists are very busy executives and request some simple requirements for participating: Please calendar the full 2 hours for participating in the event, plus 15 minutes following the end of the event. This panel is conversational-style with no need for PowerPoint presentations. We will coordinate a half-hour prep call so that we can brainstorm themes and questions. Please send a 100-word bio and photo for inclusion on the web site and on the invitations. Our panelists will each receive two guest passes. Please let us know the names and contacts of your two guests at least two weeks prior to the event. Additional passes are available for $40-$50- each or $250 for up to ten people to attend. The typical audience is 40-100+ tech professionals at varying stages of seniority/experience, representing all business functions. We will send our panelists and hosts a list of pre-registered attendees with details in preparation for the prep call. At the event, please join us for the first half hour of the meeting and actively participate in the ‘movers and shakers speed networking’ portion of the event, to help break the ice and increase the energy and networking experience for all. Feel free to promote the event to your network, and send out follow-up notes following the event, with credit to FountainBlue, the other speakers and the When She Speaks series. We take pride in highlighting the crisp and inspiring stories of our panelists, and the insightful and practical advice and recruit panelists who will perpetuate our tradition and our brand.
