Bobbie Carlton

Helping event managers avoid MANels and helping women use public speaking to advance careers and business

Bobbie Carlton is the founder of Carlton PR & Marketing, Innovation Nights and Innovation Women, or, as she calls them, the day job, the night job and the dream job.

Carlton is an entertaining, tell-like-it-is speaker who speaks extensively (and passionately) about public speaking and how it can be the driving force behind career growth and business success.

She's a TEDx speaker; an entertaining startup event host (helping to launch more than 1500 new products that got more than $4B in funding); she's spoken at the United Nations; and she's been on the main stage for some of the world’s best-known conferences for technical and professional women. Carlton has been featured on CBS News, in the Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, USA Today and other major media.

She was previously the head of global PR at two different enterprise software companies and the head of marketing for a brand devoted to providing positive role models for preteen girls.

She has inspired thousands of technical, entrepreneurial and executive women to take control of their own speaking careers and has worked with event managers to deliver diverse and inclusive events.
