The Power Conference is now accepting proposals from qualified candidates to present in demand, trending topics from their area of expertise for our first virtual Business Development Conference, Keynote, and Expo. 

The focus of the conference is on BUSINESS.  Keep in mind that our attendees are both experienced businesswomen (and men) and aspiring entrepreneurs in a wide range of industries.  Many women attend every year so speaker proposals with fresh focused topics have a better chance than general topics.  You may propose up to 3 topics.  You may propose up to 3 sessions.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Doing business in the virtual world (moving to all virtual business, online presentation skills, online platform skills)
  • Being quick on your business feet (how to efficiently reinvent yourself)
  • Marketing (digital marketing, traditional marketing)
  • Business techniques for artists, musicians, designer and other creatives (showing in galleries, entering shows, legal challenges, working with online platforms, agents)
  • The business of being in business (hiring and firing, managing finances, legal issues, retail/office locations, partnerships/sales agreements/commission, selling your business)
  • The new entrepreneur (skills for the startup or new pivot)

Topics should be clearly targeted at one of the following levels:

Ready, Set, Go – introductory business track
Power Up Your Business – grow your existing business track
The Exceptional Executive – experienced/advance level track

Our format for presentations will be shorter sessions of 30 minutes —with 20 minutes of substance-packed presentation. We have a limited number of 45 minutes sessions in the afternoon. We receive many proposals every year for limited slots which compete as to topic, title, and description. You don’t need to be a professional speaker but you should be able to reflect how compelling, interesting, and innovative you and your topic are in your proposal – our attendees want to learn something new from dynamic, knowledgeable presenters. However, presenters should have experience in speaking at similar events, video submissions showcasing speaking ability.

We are deciding on multiple presentation formats.

Speaker proposals must be submitted by April 15, 2021 at 5 pm.  Speakers will be selected on a rolling basis with final selections announced on July 15, 2021.

Speakers will not be financially compensated for their session, preparation time, or expenses. All sessions should be focused on the proposed topic and cannot be a sales pitch to the audience. Sales at the end of the session using links to your site are permitted. There will also be a section on our website for books and other materials available from our experts. We will not be handling the sales process and you must provide a link to a sales and shipping site (Amazon links are acceptable).
