What we are looking for when we review the submissions:

  • Will attendees receive information by attending the session that would be original, forward-looking, related to their interests and challenges, and could not be easily obtained in another platform.
  • Actionable sessions that dive into a specific and common industry issue.
  • Does the presentation answer a question the market is struggling with or bring to light an opportunity that few may be aware?
  • Is the presentation interesting or counterintuitive or does it just address conventional wisdom?
  • Real world. Does the talk show that people are really doing this, or is it just in-theory?

  • Commit to presenting—no last minute switch outs. This is an opportunity for the individual, not the company.
