-Ideal candidates should be experienced, inspirational and highly regarded thought leaders in their chosen fields in order to draw attendees to their sessions.
- The work of a suggested candidate should be related on the broad topic of global education. This is not a general education event. See our mission statement (http://goo.gl/L0T8S) and Global Education Declaration (http://goo.gl/k6ryJY) for clarification.
-Speakers should also represent a wide variety of nations, cultures and points of view. The core focus of our event is bringing educators, students, and non-profit organizers together to build collaborative relationships and projects that promote global awareness and global competency.
-We also welcome keynote speakers who will address multilingual audiences.
Conferences sponsors at a certain level are given the option of selecting a keynote to speak on behalf of their organization. We also closely consider representatives of organizations that have shown a great deal of involvement in the Global Education Conference and have actively and consistently promoted our community to their networks.
Suggesting names here does not guarantee inclusion as a keynote speaker in the conference. The selection of speakers remains the sole discretion of the Global Education Conference Leadership Team. Invitations will be issued if and when the Team deems appropriate.
For the 2016 Global Education Conference, the number of keynote speaker slots will be reduced as we are running the conference for four days instead of the previous five day event. Names submitted below will be kept for future reference for other events. We will be also holding a spring leadership event in 2017 where speakers will also be sought.
Thank you for your time and interest!
Lucy Gray and Steve Hargadon
