Belonging is about being seen, heard, and valued for who you are.

Join us on July 25th live in Toronto at Lula Lounge for Speaker Slam®, an evening of inspiration and connection, as 10 remarkable speakers take the stage to share their stories of Belonging.

Belonging is a fundamental human need, yet many of us struggle to find our place in the world. But what if we could embrace our differences and use them to connect with others on a deeper level? What if we could find belonging in the very things that make us unique?

At Speaker Slam, you'll hear from speakers who have done just that - who have found belonging in the face of adversity and rejection. They have overcome obstacles and turned their differences into strengths, forging deep connections and empowering others to do the same.

Their stories will inspire you to embrace your own unique journey and to see the value in every aspect of yourself. You'll learn how to use your differences to connect with others and create a sense of belonging wherever you go. Join us on July 25th and discover the power of true belonging.

Speaker Slam Events Are Different

Our event is not just about hearing inspiring stories, it's also about creating a community where you can connect with like-minded people who are also on a journey of growth and self-discovery. You'll leave feeling empowered, motivated, and ready to take on the world, no matter what obstacles come your way.

This is your chance to connect with like-minded individuals, foster a sense of empathy, and leave inspired to make a positive impact in your own life and community. Speaker Slam events have a history of bringing out more than 200 people monthly to Lula Lounge, making it a hub for growth-minded people.

Many careers have been launched from the Speaker Slam stage, and the impact of the event has been felt all around the world. Who will be the next to inspire and make ripples? So, come and be a part of the Speaker Slam community on July 25th and let's celebrate the power of true belonging and the incredible connections that are possible when we embrace our differences and find common ground with others. Discover how we can empower each other to overcome obstacles and find belonging in unexpected places.
