Tech Forward brings together experts from around the world to be a part of the discussion surrounding nonprofit technology. Do you have expertise or experience that you think will benefit our attendees and want to share on our stage? Please take part in our speaker submission process below.
There are three speaker opportunities at the conference: Plenary Talk (main stage in front of all attendees discussing a wider range topic on innovative technology), Breakout Session (specific topics or discussion with smaller groups chosen by attendees), and Lightning Talk (5 minute, prepared PowerPoint presentation on main stage showcasing innovative use of technology).
Tech Forward is looking for:
Energizing talks that include case studies and/or personal experiences to relate back to main topic
Actionable next steps for attendees to relate back to their organization
PowerPoint presentations that can be shared with attendees post-event
Fit into one of the four focus areas: Informed, Secured, Productive or Innovative
Avoid being product specific and any perception of a “sales pitch”
Plan to fit within a one-hour session for breakouts, 35 minutes for plenary talks, or 5 minutes for lightning speeches
Please fill out the below form to submit a proposal.
