Call for Speaker Submissions
The Evolve and Develop in Brighton conferences are all about bringing the European development community together to share ideas and learn from each other. If you have an idea for a presentation, we'd like to invite you to submit your proposal by following the guidelines below and completing the submission form no later than 15 March 2013.
Please keep the following in mind when you submit your proposal:
- This conference focuses on offering delegates practical advice and inspiration so they can take something of real value back to the studio. So we ask every speaker to provide a "Take Away" statement that clearly summarises what a delegate can expect to get out of the session.
- The proposed outline you submit now must match the presentation you give at the Evolve or Develop in Brighton conferences
- Preparation is vital if you are to deliver the high-quality presentation attendees deserve
