MEET THE FOUNDER
Alexa Carlin is a nationally renowned public speaker, Founder & CEO of the Women Empower Expo (WEX), and Creator of BeAPublicSpeaker.com. Alexa Founded the Women Empower Expo in 2016 after noticing a need for a national event to connect like-minded women who are passionate about making a difference in the world.
Alexa has been featured on the cover of Meetings & Conventions Magazine being named 1 of 15 “Young Millennial Go-Getters To Watch” and named one of the “Most Powerful Women In Fort Lauderdale” by Gold Coast’s Fort Lauderdale Daily.
Alexa’s drive to make a difference was inspired after a near-death experience that happened during her senior year at the University of Florida in 2013 leaving her with a 1% chance of living. This experience inspired Alexa to share her story vulnerably to audiences all over the world through public speaking. Her authentic message of resilience and empowerment has led her to grow an engaged following of over 70,000 people on social media.
Alexa has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network, Cheddar TV, ABC, FOX, CBS and in The Huffington Post, Glamour Magazine, Mashable, Gold Coast Magazine, and The Sun-Sentinel among others.
