Call for Speakers

Are you interested in speaking?

Share and showcase your leadership & executive communications expertise with a group of like-minded peers. Receive recognition from industry colleagues and take advantage of exceptional networking opportunities with other internal communications professionals. This opportunity provides you with the chance to develop your professional platform and refine your public speaking skills.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for communications professionals to not only share their success, but share their challenges as well! You will be speaking to a room of senior-level communications professionals who are more than likely in the same position as you are (or have been) — share your solutions, your tools, and your advice!

What about consultants/vendors?

We do offer a number of opportunities for consultants/vendors including leading interactive hands-on workshops and client co-presentations.

How do you choose your speakers?

Speaker slots are limited, therefore we do extensive research including finding out who our audience wants to hear from and what topics they want covered. Once your abstract is submitted it will be considered against the others. New speakers will be considered first.

Don’t procrastinate; speaker sessions fill up quickly for this annual conference. To learn more about speaking at this conference please contact Erin Sherwood, Managing Director by email or call (773) 695 – 9400 x216
