ClickZ Live New York Call for Speakers Open: Have You Got What It Takes?

We're accepting speaker submissions for ClickZ Live's inaugural event in New York this spring. Here are a few tips to help you put your best submission forward.

The clock is ticking… ClickZ Live New York’s inaugural event takes place March 31-April 3, 2014. The agenda is set and the speakers list is filling up quickly, but submissions are open!

If you think you’ve got what it takes to speak alongside big names in the industry – including keynote speaker Randi Zuckerberg – we want to hear from you. The deadline is January 17th; if you’re interested in submitting, this is it, don’t delay any further.

Here are a few tips to help you put your best submission forward. As a general rule, our focus is to bring the brightest minds of the digital marketing industry together, to educate and inspire.

Your Content Must…

Focus on the how:

It’s all about how make the most out of your topic and certainly not why that topic is important. Attendees know why they are listening to you; you’re an expert and they want to walk away with actionable takeaways they can implement both immediately and down the road.

Be unique:

Your content brings both fresh and innovative perspectives.

The No-Go: Pitchers Beware

One (very important) thing: presentations are not pitches for your services or products. This is a key element if you want to participate as a speaker. Again, attendees come to ClickZ Live to hear unbiased presentations; no pitches of any kind will be accepted.

Sending Your Submission

Consider it a mini-intro to yourself and to your topic. We’d like your bio and abstract both written in the third person. Abstracts must remain abstracts – a few lines, followed by a few bullet points of the main takeaways for attendees.

Please use our speaker submission form to ensure it is received and we have all of the information we need to consider it.

Even if you know us well, this is the only way to go, as it allows us to stay organized to provide all attendees the best experience. Personal calls and emails are nice but… they won’t get you in. However, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have, so please don’t hesitate to give us a shout.

What can you bring to the table?

Laura Roth, ClickZ Live’s head of content, says “We’ve always prided ourselves on the quality of our presenters and their contributions. ClickZ Live is no exception and we’re looking forward to enlightening content: new perspective to known issues, forward-thinking approaches, fresh ideas… you name it – only the best.”

For more detailed information on what we’re looking for, check out our Become a ClickZ Live Speaker resource on the conference website. If you’d like to read more about the transition of SES to ClickZ Live, you’ll find that on the website, as well.

Don’t forget to check out our complete agenda overview as you craft your speaking submission. There you’ll find information on ClickZ Live sessions across our Business Intel, Paid, Owned, Earned and Integrated tracks.

Remember, the deadline to submit for ClickZ Live NY is Friday, January 17th. We’ll be confirming speakers quite quickly – don’t put it off only to realize you’re too late.

See you there!
