Submit An Application To Be A Speaker At GrowthCon 2018
The Requirements To Be A Speaker...
Each speaker must be able to provide either an audio or a video of them speaking at another event. The preference is that you have a link to a YouTube video or other online place for review. If you do not have a video, you will be required to participate in our promotional video creation on a Saturday morning.
Each speaker will participate in writing a book together by providing a chapter on their topic that they will be speaking on. The chapter should be between 2,000 and 3,500 words. If there are any pictures, they must by fully owned by the author, in high resolution (300 dpi or greater) and must look good in black and white. If you are not a writer, you have the option of paying $250 to have Jody Holland write your chapter after interviewing you.
You will have to submit your full chapter 2 months before the conference. If it is not submitted before Thanksgiving Day of 2017, Jody will write a chapter for you at a cost of $750. If you are planning to have Jody write your chapter, a 1 hour interview must happen before Halloween 2017 in order to get the $250 rate. If no chapter is submitted and/or no fee paid for the chapter to be written, you will not be speaking!
Feedback from Growth Con 2017 was that having the book with the information before the conference started, along with a place to take notes for each chapter was really needed. We will make sure that this is provided for participants this year.
Each speaker will make money by selling tickets to the event. Tickets will be available on August 31, 2017. Tickets retail for $100. Each speaker will buy in at $500 and the total is due before the end of September. You will receive 20 tickets to sell. All of that money is yours.
Sponsorships - There are three Sponsorship levels.
The Event Sponsor will have their name on All Presentations at the front and the end of the presentation. They will have their name on flyers that are handed out. They will have their name on the registration website. They will have their name mentioned 4 times during the event. They will have the chance to speak before lunch and at the end of the day. The event sponsor is $2,500. There is ONLY 1 event sponsor. If you, as a speaker, sell the event sponsor, your commission is $1,000 on that sale.
Speaker Sponsors - There can be up to 8 different speaker sponsors. If your company or a company that you are connected with wishes to sponsor you as a speaker, it is $750 and includes 2 tickets to the event. This will also cover your speaker fee ($500). They will be listed as your sponsor and will have a short promo piece read about them before you speak. Your commission on an speaker sponsor is $200. They can either be promoted right before your session or have a short video played (60 seconds max).
