Note: We receive a great number of speaker proposals. In many cases, we have multiple proposals with similar topics. The selection process is competitive. Submitting this proposal is no guarantee you will be selected to speak if there are others who submit the same topic, and any people you suggest as panelists may not be selected by the conference.
Type-A Parent is known for its outstanding sessions, so much so that people actually attend sessions (typically 10+ at our annual conference) instead of ditching them to goof off. We have deadlines for speakers to turn in their outlines, key takeaways and their presentations. We expect speakers to meet the deadlines. Speakers who don't meet the deadlines get replaced. The pre-conference preparation work isn't very time-consuming for speakers, but it is crucial that it be done and done on deadline. We are the final deciders about content and presenters. We like team players who are brilliant AND who play well with others. There is no selling at the podium, period. You can't buy a speaker slot. If you wish to make a presentation or do a demo about your company, we have sponsorship options that include presentations during general luncheons or small group influencers meals or happy hours. Being friends with someone at Type-A Parent (or even everyone on staff) has exactly zero impact on whether you are selected as a speaker. Don't make it about friendship. It isn't cool, man. The best way to be picked is to submit a killer speaker proposal.
Please submit your proposal below. If you have more than one proposal idea, please submit a NEW FORM for each one.
The earlier you submit your proposals the better. You will be contacted by Type-A Parent if we are interested in having you speak at a conference.
Thank you for your interest in speaking at a Type-A Parent conference!
