Would you like to be speaking at the IFC next year!? Then come along to this session to hear from Advisory Panel members involved in the IFC speaker and session selection process. They will explain how to apply to speak at the conference and provide insights into the thorough proposal vetting process that whittles down the hundreds of submissions we receive each year into the relatively few who are invited to speak. Learn about the various factors taken into consideration – from the previous speaking experience and expertise of the applicant, to the diversity and balance of the speaker line-up overall – and maximise your chances of getting selected when you send in your ideas. There will be plenty of time for questions too. We are always looking for new speakers to join our roster, so we’d love to receive your proposals for IFC 2020!
