Call for Speakers

An audience listens intently to a #PSEWEB speaker. This could be you!Sharing is what makes #PSEWEB great. This peer-presented conference is an opportunity to share our experiences, expertise, victories, and defeats with each other. It’s how we learn and come up with fresh ideas, build community, brush up on industry trends, and keep ourselves ahead of the curve.

Never been to #PSEWEB before?

No problem! We’re an incredibly welcoming bunch, and previous conference attendance is by no means a requirement for speakers. Our vibe is collegial and fun, so expect a friendly audience of savvy, capable professionals who are excited to learn. 

Learn a bit more about who we are, and how we came to be.

If it helps, here’s a full list of 2018’s sessions.

How does it work?

Speaker sessions are usually 40 minutes long, with questions at the end. You can expect to have anywhere between 30 – 60 people in your session.

Submit your presentation idea using our form by February 28th.  Once all the proposals are in, we’ll let early bird ticket holders and everyone who submitted a session proposal a chance to vote for their favourites, with the voting results used to help determine the schedule for the conference. It’s all very democratic, really.

If you’re voted in, you’ll get $150 off your conference registration (and unlimited bragging rights). 

DEADLINE: February 28, 2019 at 11:59pm

A few pointers for your proposal:

  • Assume people know the basics. Show us how to take something one step farther.
  • Be specific. Sessions about particular strategies, how-to’s, 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.

 

Note: The 2019 Call for Speakers is now closed.
