About us

 

Hello and welcome to SpeakQNetwork.

 

My name is Reizel Larrea Alvarez and I am the Chief Executive Optimist of SpeakQ. I founded SpeakQ to explore ONE question, “What is Possible Today?”

 

This question changed my life and mindset from one of limitations to one of opportunities. This question steers us in the direction of innovation, solutions, and creativity.

 

It moves us.
It guides us more easily to where we want to go.

 

SpeakQ is a media channel which explores what women are doing and creating today.
Our mission is to expand the perception of what is possible for women in business and in technology.
As we enter a Knowledge Economy, we believe this is an ideal time for women and men to explore their ideas, ingenuity and creativity together, a time that -will elevate us into a more illuminating and joyful future.

 

At SpeakQ we envision a world where every woman is enriching her life and the lives of others in a way that is fulfilling, creative and joyful.

 

We believe in a world of Diversity and Collaboration, which we assume everyone is included.
We explore topics vital to women and we share innovative solutions women are already creating.

 

I invite you to join our community and be part of this powerful conversation. And introduce us to innovators you would like for us to feature.
