To be considered for a speaking spot, please fill out the form below. We receive a lot of submissions and the process is highly competitive – here are some tips to help you get your proposal noticed:

  • Be authentic and present an original idea that is applicable in the real world of digital marketing, strategy, or design.
  • Include as much detail as possible about the lesson you’ll teach / share.
  • Keep your proposals free of marketing and sales pitches. Your personal brand or story is less interesting than the awesome lesson you have to share. We’re more likely to consider proposals that include a practical case studies and/or examples.
  • Limit the scope: in 30 minutes, you won’t be able to cover everything about your topic. Instead, pick a specific useful aspect or series of tactics.
  • Include specific, tangible takeaways you’ll teach in your lesson that are aren’t too generic or broad.
  • Our audience always wants to hear from great brands. Being with one, or being able to bring a strong brand with you to your talk does increase your chances for acceptance. For any who bring along a brand, there are very strict guidelines on how the talk can be presented to avoid any notion of sales/agency pitch.

You should expect a response about your proposal approximately 30 days out from the event you indicate as your first preference. If however we have a need for your session in a city you didn’t select, we may invite you where we have a need.
