This online presentation proposal with all information will be accepted and considered as a speaker for ATDCFL. Please do not submit requests to speak via email as they will not be considered.
Please review your submission for accuracy and completeness. If selected as a speaker, you will be contacted by our Programs Committee via email or phone with additional details related to speaking at a chapter learning event.
If selected, the information you furnish may be edited, if necessary, due to space limitations for any publications, website, or social media marketing or advertising. More than one presentation may be submitted for consideration; however, one proposal per presentation must be completed. ATDCFL uses learning events as a platform for innovation in the field of Talent Development. We look for speakers who are willing to share their expertise without expectation of payment in the spirit of networking, a purpose for which ATDCFL was founded over 35 years ago. We believe that the size and decision making authority of our audience provides an excellent opportunity for speakers to increase their visibility and establish valuable contacts. ATDCFL strives to offer a balanced program by selecting proposals that best fit within the framework of the association. The programs selected will be based on the ATD Competency Model.
Alternative views are welcomed, particularly when lessons learned from first-hand experience are offered as models/examples.
