Presenter Formats

Registration deadline: September 30, 2020

Beyond simply attending the event, you can apply to present as well!

'Be the Change' talk

‘Be the Change’ talks can cover any theme or topic in which you are an expert, have a particular point of view, or are actively working. It is your opportunity to share with the group a fresh take on a subject you think will appeal to and resonate with other participants. You will be given 15 minutes in front of the room to share your thoughts, much like a TED talk format, with a short question & answer period afterwards.

'Ignite' session

 An ‘ignite’ session is a space in which you can share your knowledge and expertise on a particular subject that has ignited strong excitement within you, one that will pull the audience in and capture their interest as well. You will be given 45 minutes to teach your peers a skill or create a space for collaboration and co-creation. Bring your passion to the table!


A select few people will be chosen to conduct workshops over a 90-minute period of the event. These workshops need to be highly interactive and should present participants with a new idea, skill, methodology or take on a key question facing the world today.
