    There are a lot of reasons why you should be a speaker for an ATD Houston event. Depending on how you look at it each and every one of us is a product or a brand. This is true for people who own their own company, are partners in a firm, or are high visibility employees. To sum it up, being a speaker gets you exposure, builds your brand, and can ultimately get you more business/exposure. Being a speaker at an ATD Houston event and showcasing your thought leadership on the subject you are presenting is truly the best advertisement for your business. Plus, what a way to shine and show your stuff to our ATD Houston community!

    ATD Houston is always looking for talented and innovative speakers throughout the year, so it is always a great time to submit a proposal. We offer a variety of programs, including workshops, general meetings, lunchtime meetings, virtual events and our two conferences, which includes a keynote and workshop speakers. Consider speaking at one of our events and share your insights with your ATD Houston community!

    Here are some tips to help your submission(s) stand out:

    • Keep in mind that our members are looking for tangible takeaways that they can implement when returning to their workplace.
    • Our members love to hear how other learning and development professionals have approached a key challenge. Any case studies or examples that you can present are very desirable!
    • Our members also love learning about what not to do, or how other organizations learned from their mistakes.
    • Members come to ATD Houston events to hear unbiased presentations and we do not tolerate pitches for any kind of product or service. Please keep your abstract and presentation focused purely on education.

    Go to https://tdhouston.org/Request-for-Speaker and complete the form. Note:  topics submitted should relate to the new ATD Talent Development Capability Model. See https://www.td.org/insights/new-capability-model-is-a-blueprint-for-talent-development-professionals for specific details. Please know that all of our ATD Houston speakers undergo a vetting process.  Once your speaking proposal is reviewed, someone from our events team will follow-up with you.

    If you have any questions about submitting a proposal, please contact one of our respective board members for programs, groups and professional development events.  You can find their contact information here - https://tdhouston.org/BOD.

    I look forward to seeing you “shine” at an upcoming ATD Houston event!
