Submit a Talk

Are you interested in submitting a talk to be a part of our line-up?

Hopefully so! We are certainly interested in hearing about your great ideas! Please fill out the following form and let us know what you have in mind. Here’s what we’re looking for in a submission to present: We’re pretty wide open!

All speakers get free admission to the event and a unique Speaker Gift courtesy of Chicago Camps. We try to have someone taking notes at your presentation so that we can publish/share them, and we’ll do our best to take photos during the presentation so that you can use them, as well. We may also be offering semi-professional headshots (nice photos taken by our staff) to help you submit for future presentations, if you’d like.

For events with an open Call for Speakers (typically our Camp events), we’ll also help you with your abstract if you’d like assistance, and gladly do our best to help you with feedback on a dry run of your presentation (scheduled at least a week before the event).

We regret that we cannot sponsor travel or lodging at this point in time.

Still on the fence? Take a few minutes to listen to this great interview we did with Doc Waller on speaking at conferences!
