Being a speaker at the Great Game of Business Conference™ is a great opportunity to share your lessons learned, inspire other business people with your journey, advance the mission of transforming lives with the Great Game of Business, and identify yourself as a leader in the open-book community. To thank you for your time and contribution to the community, speakers also receive a free conference registration.
This year, we are doing speaker selection a little differently. We've polled the community to determine what topics are top-of-mind, and potential speakers are asked to select from those topics.
Submission Deadline: January 15, 2023
Submission Deadline: January 15, 2023
Anyone wishing to speak at the Great Game of Business Conference must submit a speaker application, which will be evaluated by the Practitioner Council. The Council will rate speaker applications based on the goals and objectives of the conference, as well as speaker qualifications.
WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ASSOCIATES, SUPERVISORS, AND MIDDLE MANAGERS INVOLVED IN THE PRESENTATIONS! Not only is that what the Great Game of Business is all about, but practitioners and 'tire kickers' alike want to hear from the people “on the front lines” that can give them insights and inspiration to help ignite engagement in their own organizations.
As part of the application process, you will choose up to three topics that you would be willing to present on, and provide a short "pitch" for each topic selected. The pitch should include your experience with the topic, as well as a few of the ideas and insights you would share in the session.
If selected, you will be grouped into a presentation team that includes a Great Game Coach and Great Game staff member. The team will work together to develop the session, description, learning objectives, tangible takeaways, and slide deck. (If you have a particular coach or staff member you'd like to work with, please note that in your application.)
This year, we are asking potential speakers to select up to three topics from the following list of topics, curated from practitioner input:
You are also invited to submit a "wild card" topic - an off-list topic of your own choosing.
