Tips to a successful submission:

  • Be authentic. Our committee looks for original ideas in real-world scenarios with relevant examples.

  • Include as much detail about the presentation as possible.

  • Keep proposals free of marketing or sales pitches.

  • Make sure to describe clear value for attendees.

  • If you are not the speaker, provide the contact information of the person you’re suggesting.

  • Limit the scope: in 15-30 minutes, you won’t be able to cover ‘everything’. Pick a useful aspect, a particular technique etc.

  • If your talk is technical make sure to demonstrate practical teachings and takeaways

  • If your presentation is by, including the participation of a woman, person of colour, or underrepresented group please include that in the notes, as we strive include diversity in our lineup.

  • All submissions will go through a review process by our Steering Committee.
