speak_to_me_squareSix years ago Mill Valley parents Jenny Terry and Tracy Barsotti had an aha moment. Jenny recalls, “There are so many amazing, interesting and engaging women who live all around us here in the Bay Area, but with all of our family, professional, volunteer and other commitments there just weren’t enough opportunities for us to take time out to connect with each other. We also felt we needed more time to get educated and engage on important topics that are meaningful to all of us. We came up with the idea for Speak To Me because we really believe that the more informed and connected we are, the better we feel, and the stronger our families, schools, businesses and communities become!”

After a year of researching and talking to women throughout the community about what they wanted, the duo launched Speak To Me and created a place for women to come together to learn, explore new ideas, and feel empowered to make a difference in the world around them. More than 47 speakers have already taken the stage at their events to share their wisdom, research, expertise and advice on a range of engaging topics, and they have had over 4,000 women attend over the past 5 years. Now entering their sixth season, the Speak To Me team is excited about the caliber of inspiring speakers they have in store and plans to continue what they started – creating experiences that feel rewarding and worthwhile – inspiring and empowering the audience to think differently or do things differently than when they walked in.

This season, beginning October 27th, will include four Evening Series events (at the Mill Valley Community Center) as well as the popular Lunch & Learn Series of more intimate daytime events (at Piatti Restaurant) featuring brilliant, dynamic speakers who will address important topics including thriving in the age of innovation, using your talents for good and how to marry core values and beliefs with a thriving career while savoring a life that you love. The lunchtime series will address ways to keep us healthy & vibrant in mind & body as we age. Both Series’ include delicious food with the evening events also boasting a wonderful wine tasting reception, giveaways and plenty of time to mingle with presenters and friends – all the makings of a perfect night out!

Jenny and Tracy are generous supporters of KIDDO! and believe that the better the public school system the larger the benefit to everyone in our community. Tracy says, “KIDDO! is a core part of our community. It makes our schools great, and it’s one of the key reasons that Mill Valley is such an excellent place to raise our children.”

Throughout the season, Speak To Me is kindly offering KIDDO! supporters a 5% discount on all tickets, plus they will give an additional 5% of those sales back to KIDDO!
