Deadline for Requests
We try to accommodate all speaker requests, but high demand for speakers means that requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the desired speaking date.
Requests may be made for Monday-Friday, up until 7:00 p.m.

A few days after your request is submitted you will receive an email confirming that a speaker has been scheduled. Your assigned speaker will contact you to coordinate details of the event.
