Hey, good to see you here!

My name is Raimonda Jankunaite and I am the founder of Women in Business Club and Women Thrive Summit & Media platform. I wasn’t always a confident speaker. In fact, in my 20’s I found myself in a very toxic relationship that led me to loosing my confidence, my identity and my voice. For two years I struggled to use my voice. I could not show up in my business, social environments, online or even have a conversation over the phone without anxiety over my voice. I thought I was doomed. 

Today I not only host global women empowerment events, run daily lives, do regular speaking on global stages but also train others on how to use the power of their voice to share their message with the world. In 2017 I started hosting events for women and my world changed. I found a supportive community of amazing women, who encouraged me to create what now is a global platform for women. Since then, I hosted more than 15 live events, 6 virtual summits, done over 500 hours of training, podcast interviews and 100’s of speaking engagements. I also hosted more than 500 speakers through our platform and events and trained 100’s of speakers on my journey, since regaining the power of my voice.

The Route to Your International Speaking Career

Over and over again I watch the ripple effect that public speaking and speakers make in the industry, from sharing their impactful stories to changing people’s lives, to changing their own lives in the process. You see what happens when you open yourself up to opportunities to share your story in a new domain, you are suddenly able to reach a completely new audience who may have not been familiar with you before.

You may think that the spotlight on you was just during the time you spent on stage, but if you have succeeded in your quest to impact the audience, your story will be told many times over.

Your name will be mentioned in conversations around a dinner table, your story will be shared again and again over a cup of coffee between friends, your name will be mentioned in private networks where business is being discussed. All because you told your story in a powerful and engaging way.

I know this because I have personally heard our speaker’s stories recited to me in private meetings months after the event has taken place.

Because stories touch our hearts and then spread and travel in all new directions. And when the right people hear your story, new windows and doors of opportunities open up.

Suddenly, you start to get asked to share your story on a podcast, someone reaches out to give you a paid speaking opportunity, a prospect reaches out to you to work with you because their heard your name or your story shared somewhere. 

This is the power of public speaking. Not just the immediate impact you make, but the ripple effect it causes many weeks, months, and even years later. This is how you also leverage one speaking opportunity to the next, as I often see our speakers do leading up to a summit or an event.

With the power of public speaking your name will be mentioned in rooms where your feet have not stepped into yet. Would you like to become a more powerful speaker and reach the ears, hearts, and souls of people worldwide?

Do I need to have previous speaking experience? – No, you do not have to have previous speaking experience, but you should possess passion and commitment to learning the art of speaking 

Do you train to speak as well as the business side of the public speaking career? – Yes, we support you in both the art of speaking and preparing yourself as ‘the-go-to’ expert for your industry so you can become a paid speaker 

I do not feel confident with speaking and this is new to me, will I be able to fit in? – Do not worry, we will walk you through the program step by step, work on mindset and confidence building so any fear of public speaking is eliminated. 

If I find that this program is not for me, can I leave at any time? – Yes, if you feel like you have learned the skills you need to learn or you do not feel 100% aligned to the program, you can cancel your subscription 30 days in advance of your next payment. 


How long does the program run? – The program is for 6 months with a bonus month of guest experts, beginning in May 2023 and ending in November 2023 but you do have the option to continue to 12 months as our academy advances and new content is introduced. This is a program of learning by doing and staying accountable.

How much time do I need to commit to the program? – You need to dedicate up to 2 hours a week to our live or pre-recorded (virtual) training sessions, plus additional 2 hours a week to additional learning, practice, pitching and other work.

Will I have the opportunity to practice my new learned skills? – Yes, in fact, we will encourage everyone to do weekly practices. We also plan to organise speaker showcase events, so you can showcase your skills to a real live audience. We will also support you and encourage you to pitch to podcasts, events and other stages so you can apply what you learn right away.

Meet the Visionary Founder of Women Thrive Media

Raimonda Jankunaite is the founder and host of the Women Thrive Media & the annual Women Thrive Summit, that is hosted every year to mark Women’s History Month to empower women to thrive. Every year we celebrate and highlight the achievements of women globally.

Raimonda has built Women in Business Club est. 2017 as an inclusive platform and a global community for female entrepreneurs and business founders. In just a short few years Raimonda has build a globally recognised brand and grown her community to over 600,000 followers worldwide.

Raimonda is a best selling author, international speaker, serial entrepreneur and an expert in visibility and authority building. She helps other business founders become recognised and highly visible in their area of expertise and stand out as an authority in their niche.

Raimonda's passion is hosting events and helping other women become speakers and share their stories worldwide. She believes that there are not enough stages and media outlets that celebrate and spotlight women and their achievements, so Raimonda is on a mission to build a global media company and a platform for women to speak and share their stories, where they feel heard, celebrated and accepted. 

Her passion for speaking and empowering others stems from her own personal experience of loosing her voice, her identity and confidence due to trauma, now that she has overcome her own life challenges and found the power in her voice she wants to make sure that no other woman has to hide her light and shy away from speaking up and sharing her story.

Your story matters and the world needs to hear about it. 

I learnt it from the best in the industry 

In 2021 I was very fortunate to work with the legendary no 1 Motivational Speaker Les Brown and spend 6 months leading an accountability sub-group of the program within the Hungry To Speak community.

This helped me fill the gaps of the program and provide practical training to the speakers with their bio preparation, marketing collateral, run weekly speaker practices and provide valuable feedback to the speakers. 

Whilst in this program I was chosen as event committee and asked to be a co-host of one of the virtual speaker showcases for Les Brown as well as take part in a live event organisation in New York City in 2021. 

In June 2021 I also organised one of the motivational speaker showcase events featuring 20+ powerful speakers from the program.

This experience has helped me master new skills in leadership and community building following the blueprint of Les Brown. Whilst working with speakers with traumatic experiences of life, helped me develop deep empathy for people which I believe is currently missing in the coaching industry. 

Intuitively I help people dig deeper, below the surface of their words and tap into their potential through emotional connection. I use the skills I have learned to help people unlock the true potential of their stories and create truly impactful talks with the power of their words. 

Public speaking is a true passion of mine and I continue to build on the legacy of those who have come before us, so we can make a global impact with our stories and our mission.
