Please provide a link to a video of a previous speaking engagement. Video clips are essential when choosing speakers, so we made this a mandatory part of the application process for all speakers. If you don’t have a video of yourself presenting in action at an event, please create a very short clip (2-3 minutes) of you proposing your session. The quality of the video isn’t important, only the quality of the performance. It’s perfectly ok to use your phone to record the video. If your video isn’t already online, post it to a third party site and share the link with us.
