Call for Speakers
One of the greatest things about The Best in Tech Conference is the opportunity to come and learn about the latest Assistive Technology solutions by way of presentations given by regular everyday users. In other words, these presentations are not sales pitches from vendors or manufacturers who have a vested interest in getting you to buy a specific product. Our presenters are people like you and I who use these solutions on a daily basis to live independent and productive lives.
We are extending an invitation to anyone who wishes to be a speaker at this year’s Best in Tech. If you use Assistive Technology or have found a way to use a non-A.T. product in a way that has increased your independence or productivity, if you enjoy talking tech and are comfortable speaking in front of large audiences, we want to hear from you.
In an effort to make this years presentation even more interesting and maintain a more consistent flow, we ask that you plan on speaking about the features and things you like about your device rather than relying on product demos. As we all know, our beloved technology has a tendency to not always behave as expected. These little “glitches” tend to cause delays that ultimately result in significant time loss over the course of a 2 hour presentation.
If you would like to be a speaker at this year's Best in Tech, please contact us at the email address below. Please tell us about yourself, your background, work, affiliations etc. Also, please describe the technology you will be talking about in either an outline or a written sample of your presentation. If this is your first time speaking at this conference, we may also ask you to submit an audio sample of your presentation so that our Planning committee can assess your speaking ability. You should plan to speak for about 8 minutes. That may seem like a long time, but it goes by much faster than you think. Make sure that your presentation includes an adequate description of the product, details about how this technology helps you, and why you feel that this technology is one of the best. You should also plan to be available after the main presentation to answer questions from participants and if possible give demonstrations of the technology you discussed.
