If you are successful we will be in touch via email and you will be invited to our 'speaker stand up' session in May where you will be asked to pitch your idea to our team face-to-face for five minutes only.
Write your idea down in one or two sentences. Ask yourself three questions:1. Is my idea new?2. Are you telling people something you're pretty sure they have not heard before?3. Is it interesting?
Think about how your idea might apply to a room full of varied kinds of people. - Who might be interested in it?- Is it factual and realistic?
If you are presenting new research, make sure your idea is backed by data and peer-reviewed.
If you are presenting a call to action, make sure it can be executed by membersof your audience.
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, refine your idea.
