Important items to keep in mind when submitting a speaker proposal


Highly Encouraged Elements:

  • Learning Objectives – clear, achievable audience takeaways
  • Interactive component – such as Q & A or other audience participatory activity
  • Support Materials – physical or downloadable information reinforcing application of skills learned or implementation of best practices



  • Diversity & Co-presenting – presentation submissions are encouraged to reflect a diversity of presenters, including race, gender, industry, sector, geographical region, country, and viewpoint.
  • Presentation Format – highly interactive and audience participatory elements such as roundtables, Q & A, AMA spotlights, or brief workshop activities, case studies, concrete lessons learned, technical information and materials that practitioners can apply to their own work are strongly encouraged.
  • Creative Facilitation – presenters are encouraged to consider ways to engage the audience and make their session interactive and creative. Collaborative formats (peer discussions, panels, fireside chats) are preferred.



  • Presentations of academic or scientific studies are not encouraged unless the study has resulted in a best practice application or program.
  • Speakers may not endorse specific products or services in their presentation. Private sector submitters may not use presentations as a means for business development or sales (there will be other opportunities at ResCon to conduct business development.)
