Joining Kirkland Productions

Screen Shot 2013-04-12 at 10.07.04 AM

I have an exciting announcement, friends. After a few years handling all speaking engagement bookings in-house, today I am happy to announce that Girls Fight Back has joined the roster of the national talent agency, Kirkland Productions!

While sometimes you can do things on your own, control the dickens out of it and save a few bucks – you gotta know when it’s time to work with a true professional and kick things up a few notches. Now is that time for us.

Enter, Gina Kirkland – owner of Kirkland Productions. (Check out the GFB webpage on her agency site here.)

Many of my respected speaker friends have raved about her, and now I see why. Nothing falls through the cracks. She insanely cares about our mission to end violence against women and girls. She’s incredibly organized and shares our philosophy of providing ridiculous customer service to people that want to book a GFB event.

Gina should wear a cape, because she’s a freakin’ super hero.

So effective immediately, if you want to bring myself or any of the GFB speakers to rock your event, you can give Gina a call at 866.769.9037 or shoot an e-mail to booking@kirklandproductions.com.

Onward!

Homestead Survival

We were honored to have Erin’s article “7 Self-Defense Tips for Women” published on Homestead Survival. It’s a really great blog that encourages self-reliance and country living.

Here’s the article.

 

Women in the World Conference

One of our GFB team members was featured at the Women in the World conference in New York this week. Khalida Brohi from Pakistan has been part of the GFB family since 2010, and is doing incredible work to empower women both in Pakistan and abroad.

She received a standing ovation at the conference, who also featured folks like Hillary Clinton, Oprah and Angelina Jolie (who asked to take a picture with Khalida!)  Umm, yes please.

We are so proud of Khalida, of all she has done, and all she will continue to do with her organization called Sughar. Above is video of Khalida speaking at TEDxMargalla so you can get a sense of how badass she is. We’ll update with the video from Women in the World as soon as it’s available.
