What We’re Looking For:

Experience has shown us that delegates have expressed a preference for how-to topics and case studies rather than theoretical or abstract topics.

We would particularly like practitioners with interesting experiences to share including success stories, lessons learned, challenges that have been overcome, and pitfalls to avoid.

Delegates also like to hear from industry experts who can provide fresh insights, current trends, management advice, and discussions of future directions.

Please submit a description of the talk you would like to present.

We need a title that reflects the content of the presentation, a description in a paragraph or two, and 3-5 bullet points setting out the key messages. Tell us something about yourself, your role, and the enterprise you represent. If you have previous experience as a conference speaker, provide a summary of this experience. If you don’t have previous experience speaking at conferences, then please make this clear. We’re happy either way and just need to know.

We’ll be choosing conference sessions and workshops that concern the below examples of themes and topics.

Speaker Guidelines

Please read these guidelines carefully before you make your submission, and ensure it reaches us by Friday 10 May 2024, Midnight.

Proposals should be focused, adheres to the conference guidelines, and offers something engaging and useful.

We are looking for:

  • 45-minute conference sessions
  • 3 or 6 hour workshops
  • Ideas for roundtables/panels and networking sessions

Please submit your abstract directly on our website using the submission link below. You may submit more than one abstract.

Your abstract should be kept to the 150-word limit, clearly outlining your content plus 3-5 bullet points at the end to summarise your key messages as to what delegates will learn. Copy must be written in 3rd person. Bear in mind that your abstract needs to be sufficiently polished for inclusion on the website and in the conference brochure and must achieve the following objectives:

Provide enough information for us to evaluate your submission relative to others. To aid the evaluation you can include additional relevant information in the ‘additional notes’ section of the submission form.
Be attractive to conference attendees and help them select the sessions most valuable to them, given their interests and level of maturity in the subject matter. Based on previous conference feedback and program assessments, here are some tips to help you maximize your chances of being selected.


  • Be specific and concrete about what you will be presenting and how the audience will benefit from it. Use the bullet points to highlight the key ‘takeaways’.
  • Demonstrate real-world achievements, showing examples of content if possible, and describing outcomes from applying it.
  • Push the envelope. Aim to stretch the audience with fresh insights and the benefit of your own experience.
  • Ensure that your presentation is relevant to this conference. If your talk majors on a specialised topic, you should position it clearly in the overall conference theme.


  • ‘Pitching’ specific products.
  • Exceeding the word count limit.
  • Trying to cover too much ground in the time available.
  • Putting forward unsubstantiated theories or opinions.
  • Using vague abstractions and jargon.

If you have presented recently at another conference on a similar subject matter, we suggest that you use the ‘additional notes’ of the submission form to indicate how this presentation is different from what you have presented before.

If you are not sure whether your idea is suitable or not, please feel free to contact us to discuss it before making your submission.
