Requirements

We are proud of all our Speakers and the Presentations delivered, so we need to make sure that each Presentation has all the technical foundations and real-life insight that our community expects from us. There are three phases to each Event:

Phase 1: The Idea

To present your own session at a Tech-Spark event, we would like to get to know you and your idea. As a speaker you need to:

  • Select a topic and create a short description of your presentation (let us know if you’ll include a demo or a hands-on lab)
  • Create a description about you (and your relation with the topic selected)
  • List your availability for the presentation and the Event Option of your choice
  • The speaker can also propose sponsors for your presentation, like the company employing him/her.
  • Send an email to speakers@tech-spark.com

The Tech-Spark team will review your submission and reply with any further clarifications that might be needed.

Phase 2: The Hand-Shake

Once the event is agreed on, the Tech-Spark team will propose a date for the event, and in case of combined sessions, mediate between all speakers involved.

From your end, as a speaker you need to:

  • Create the Presentation
  • Submit the presentation for review at least 15 days before the event date

The Tech-Spark team will give feedback on your presentation as appropriate, will take care of creating an event banner, and start marketing the event. A Tech-Spark branded slide with banner and sponsors will be supplied for you to include as the first slide of your presentation.

Phase 3: The Presentation

On the Event Day:

  • The speaker is required to be on site at least 45 minutes before the Event start time to set up and relax with a cup of coffee or tea before the event starts.
  • Photos will be taken during the event, and together with your presentation, they will published on the website and Tech-Spark’s social media.
  • Your presentation will be made available for reference purposes to the community.
  • Finally, a last photo will be taken with the Tech-Spark team, and we’ll call it a day!

We are looking forward to meet our new Speakers!
