The Best Visionary Women Speakers according to my friends

I asked my friends on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Medium to recommend the best visionary women speakers so I could invite a few to Further Future. A few weeks ago I had also asked who would be a great woman speaker on the future of dating.

I compiled all the suggestions I got here. Sorry if I missed any.

This is exactly why I’m building Leade.rs. It should be structured data and stay available for anyone. The next step is to decide who Further future wants to invite based on all those recommendations (the community voting would be awesome) and then find all the emails to invite them and see who is available.

Thank you all for your recommendations. I guess Leila Janah wasn’t mentioned because I know her quite well :) but she would definitely be on this list.

Here is the list in no particular order.
