    Pros: 

    Gender balanced - great quality speakers

    Cons: 

    New platform so will likely be room for improvement

    As both a conference organizer and a speaker, I know the space has a TON of challenges. It's not transparent, there's little efficiency, it's hard for newer voices to rise up so you end up with the same people at every event. Can't wait to see the positive impact Leaders will have on the space.

    Pros: 

    Unmatchable portfolio of speakers ✨

    Cons: 

    Showcasing events powered by Leade.rs would be great 🙌

    Been following the platform since it's conception couple years ago. Glad to see it finally come to life 🤗

    It'd be awesome if I could see the events where these speakers are giving talks at and booking tickets right from Leade.rs would be an added bonus 💯

Hi everyone, our small team at Leade.rs has been working on this product for event organizers to book speakers. This is just a start, a collection of hundreds of great speakers in tech with >50% women and we care about all forms of diversity. Very simple for now but we are going to keep updating it based on feedback! Thanks.

Hi @loic ! Great platform - are you considering looping-in sponsors?

@loic then with so many experts, that'd be cool to be able to book their time outside of events. #monetization

Awesome to see this out there, @loic. I remember when we first spoke about Leaders nearly two years ago. It's evolved quite a bit since then, built to solve a real hole in the industry for both speakers and organizers. Here's my profile. 😊 I'm curious what you decided on the monetization / business model?

@rrhoover thank you Ryan! Yeah as you can see we changed... everything. And your feedback was key. We have decided to decide on business model as we see volume growing and based on feedback.

Congrats on the launch @loic! Glad to see this out, finally! 🙏 Can't wait to see the events that come out of this; do you have any plans to showcase the events your speakers are speaking at? Maybe broadcast it on the platform too? Been following this ever since your live broadcast with @rrhoover long ago (which you should do more often btw) 😅

Are all speakers paid or will some speak for free (or in return for travel costs etc). Would be cool to filter that kind of info ahead of the invite @loic (I run a 1000+ startup person conference in Sweden but since tickets are free we struggle with large speaker fees, so normally pay for travel/hotels for overseas guests which tends to work quite a bit of the time)
