Topics

The basic criterium for all the speakers and content is: What has come to market recently or what has happened recently that has either provided you with the insight to change your speaking business or that type of technology has been and will be impacting the speaker business for the next two years. Think of all the things speakers are not yet doing that they could to become more relevant, sell more, provide better value, reduce costs or scale better? AS the conference is about innovation we are looking for what is new and relevant to speakers. Do you have a platform, software, idea that can or is transforming the speaker world, we want to know about you. Apply here and maybe, you will be the next big hit in the speaker world. Below are samples of topics that we will look at. The list is not exhaustive, so if your innovation does not fall in these categories, don't be disheartened, apply; it may just be the next topic we add.

Processes

Each business consists of multiple processes. For instance, in a speaker business, we have the sales process that could include negotiations or contracts.

Technologies

Types of Engagement

First and foremost we need to make it clear. this Convention has the aim to inform, improve and help speakers. As such please choose the format that you believe your message will have eh maximum impact in and where the benefit to the speakers will be the most.

Workshops

Workshops are expected to have interaction in them. Workshops are learning by doing. Pick no more than three key elements you think would be most beneficial and design an exercise or two about it to make it really sink in. Let people leave with a benefit they won't easily forget. Workshops are longer than speeches as we know trying something out takes more time.

Some keynotes may not lend itself to interaction, don't be disheartened all applications are welcome.

Panel discussion

Would you be willing to discuss your topic with more than one expects in that field? or with fellow speakers to discuss the impact? DO you enjoy thinking on the fly? then this may just be the right format for you.
