Be a Summit Speaker
Share |


WBL Summits are a unique opportunity to present to a group of approximately 225 senior executive women in all parts of health care. WBL prides on selecting speakers not based upon sponsorship contribution but upon finding speakers who fit well with the WBL audience.  


Speakers are selected throughout the fall of the preceding year by the WBL staff with input from the WBL Board of Directors and Advisory Board. Our aim in choosing a speaker is to find great storytellers with an interesting message. Speaking skills and the talent for audience engagement are our primary selection criteria.



WBL Summits are not solely health care focused, but instead focus on a combination of industry-related topics as well as executive skill-building. The 2019 Summit will be held in Dallas, TX, March 13-15.  The theme of the 2019 WBL Summit is The Power of Inspiration & Influence.

Topics may include:

  • Authentic leadership: inspiring courage, creating impact
  • How risk-taking and resilient leadership becomes contagious
  • Disruptors that are influencing our industry
  • The ROI of giving back: a business case
  • How to influence upward
  • Your impact on the pipeline: setting an example that motivates and retains great talent
  • Inspiring others in a time of upheaval


Specifically, we are seeking solo speakers who can give an excellent talk in a 45-75 minute setting (including Q&A). Speakers must commit to attending the WBL Summit meal immediately following their talk, with hope that the speaker would attend the full WBL Summit. All solo Summit speakers receive a complimentary WBL Summit registration, including hotel stay at the Four Seasons during the program.

WBL is no longer accepting submissions for speakers for our 2019 WBL Summit. If you have already completed a submission, you will be notified by the end of October as to whether or not your submission has been accepted. Thank you!
