Speak Up graphic

Speaker proposal submission is now open for the 2018 conference, through May 1st! 

See below for proposal guidelines, and the form to submit for consideration. Best of luck! 

  • If you have already submitted a proposal for the current year, we kindly ask that you refrain from checking in on the status, due to the extremely high volume of entries we receive. We review all proposals carefully, and will reach out directly if we find a fit, or have additional questions. 
  • If you are interested in submitting a proposal for one of our sister conferences, please simply denote that in your proposal. 
  • Please note that we reserve book sales for currently confirmed speakers only. 
  • We do not have a waiting list for last minute speaking roles. 
  • We are unable to accept any entries past the submission deadline, or via email. 
  • As a non-profit, our speaking roles are unpaid. If you require an honorarium to speak, please do not submit a proposal.
  • We do not accept proposals for keynote roles. 
  • Once you have submitted a proposal, please kindly refrain from emailing to check on the status of your entry. We will be in touch directly by August 1st if we’d like to invite you to join us this year.
