What speakers need to know?
● At the event you will sit in an area for all speakers which will grant you access to the stage easily. You are encouraged to stay for the whole event, and to mingle during breaks and at the closing reception.
● During the talk the talk must not go over the allotted time (provided by conference director on case-by-case basis). We will cue you when your time has run out.
● After the talk you are expected to remain at the event throughout the day; at minimum, you're expected to stay through the conversation break following your talk, so attendees can approach and ask questions.
If you should have any questions regarding becoming a speaker for The Planners Suite 2018, please contact Jon'll Boyd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application deadline is April 31, 2017. Selected speakers may be asked for a phone interview during the section time and all selected speakers will be notified by May 1, 2017.
