To take the stage at INNO

INNO will feature 20-minute fireside chats, small panels, talks and deep dives (more technical) sessions. We also offer the opportunity to host a pre-conference workshop for a smaller group of engaged guests. We strongly suggest designing an original talk for INNO that either includes:

(1) inviting a key collaborator (i.e. partner or client) to join you on stage for a fireside chat to discuss the creative impact of your relationship
(2) presenting a case study talk outlining core principles with real world examples
(3) taking the stage for an inspirational talk sharing your vision, methodology and outcomes from it’s execution

We’re avoiding product demonstrations, sales pitches, and large panel discussions. For more tips on how to submit a successful proposal, check out our blog post.

Empowering Content for 2020

INNO is a well-curated experience. Our goal is to deliver practical, real-world information to our guests. We’re looking for speakers who are passionate about innovation and collaboration. If you have an inspiring story to share about disruption, partnering with innovators, improving a process, or setting a new industry standard, we want to know.

The ideal INNO speaker is:

  • passionate about sharing expertise, strategies, and real-world knowledge
  • experienced in engaging groups of 200+ people
  • willing to partner with INNO to deliver the best possible content and experience for our guests
  • able to attend the core days of INNO to engage with our guests (schedule permitting) and interested in forging connections with the INNO community beyond the event itself
  • committed to sharing INNO details on your social media networks
  • available onsite for a 5-minute interview (video or audio) for potential usage in future INNO marketing material
