Call for Speakers

Speakers - Samantha Read and Kareem Rahaman, Ryerson UniversitySharing is what makes #PSEWEB great. This conference is our big chance to share our experiences, expertise, victories, and defeats with each other. It’s how we learn and come up with amazing ideas. So, if you work for a Canadian post-secondary institution in web or digital communications and you want to share, don’t be shy.

Speaker sessions are usually 40 minutes long, with questions at the end. Two sessions run at the same time, so you’ll be presenting to about 60 people or so. The mood is collegial and fun.

How Does it Work?

Submit your presentation idea using our form.  Once all the proposals are in, we will let early bird ticket holders vote for their favourites, with the voting results used to help determine the schedule for the conference.  

We ask all session speakers to attend at least one full day of the conference. Bonus: Speakers get $150 off your registration!

If you snap up an early bird ticket for yourself, and are then selected to speak – no problem. We’ll just refund to your method of payment.

Some Tips

Here are a few pointers for your submission.

  • Assume people know the basics. Show us how to take something one step farther.
  • Be specific. Sessions about particular strategies, projects, or technologies are usually more popular than general presentations.
  • Be clear and concise. Voters will have a lot of proposals to read through. Let them know what they’ll get out of your presentation quickly and easily.
  • About the Session

  • Keep it short, snappy, and descriptive.
  • Clearly and concisely, let us know what your session would be about.
  • In one sentence, what would people take away from your session?
  • About You

  • Would someone be presenting with you? Provide their name and job title here.
