Speaker applications will close March 14, 2021 at 11:59pm EST. Please be sure to provide both your application and your video submission. We will review and get back to all speakers in March 2021. Our event series will be held in Summer 2021.
Important: READ before submitting your application This is to help provide some guidelines as to how we will evaluate submissions.
We evaluate applications against several factors:
- Ideas worth spreading – we are looking for a diversity of ideas that may reflect our changed world, directly relate to the impacts of COVID-19, or other important topics that have not been reflected in our news or social media feeds. We will not consider ideas that include:
- commercial agendas
- political agendas or inflammatory rhetoric
- religious agendas
- bad science
- uniqueness of the idea
- relevance to the theme
- lived experience of speaker to speak credibly to the idea
Also, there’s no need to have public speaking experience, but it is important for all applicants to understand that there is a significant time commitment required to ensure our coaches can get you ready for the red dot stage.
