The Workshop Selection Committee will review all proposals and contact potential workshop presenters if any further information is required. Speakers whose presentations are chosen for inclusion in the program will be notified via email and will receive a confirmation letter and audio-visual checklist.
Following the selection of their presentation, speakers will be required to sign a speaker’s agreement of engagement. As part of the speaker's agreement, speakers agree to maintain an educational focus in their session, eliminating all sales messages/presentations. Furthermore, they agree to submit all required information about audio-visual needs, a biography, photograph and session description, among other things, within the time specified in the agreement.
Workshop presenters do not receive fees and are responsible for their own travel expenses including hotel, airfare and ground transportation. In exchange for their participation, speakers benefit through exposure to an audience of top public relations and communications professionals from across the country.
Any information that is collected from you on this submission form will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
Thank you for your interest in being part of Illuminate 2017, Kelowna. For any questions on the submission process please contact Dan LaBelle at firstname.lastname@example.org or (416) 239-7034.
