SharePoint Saturday Speaker Submission Guidelines

SP Saturday Speaker Submissions are tough. Here’s a few Rules

One of the main objectives of SharePoint Saturday is to promote and develop a new crop of SharePoint Community speakers. The explosion of the event to include an international presence is great for the SharePoint community overall, but can be overwhelming and a daunting task for the new speaker. This speaker may have a wealth of experience in the SharePoint industry but the nuances of becoming an established speaker present a different learning curve altogether.

Adding on to the challenges are the 3 Undeniable Truths regarding SharePoint Saturday events that all potential speakers must understand and embrace:

1.) SharePoint Saturday is built upon a franchise model *but* each city adopts their event in a different way

2.) SharePoint Saturday Event Organizers have different criteria on what proposals they will accept

3.) A Well-written proposal is becoming of higher importance as more Organizers are adopting the trend of “nameless selection processes” when choosing speakers for their event

Based on these 3 undeniable truths that all SharePoint Community Speakers must embrace when submitting sessions to SharePoint Saturday, please review the article below and provide your viewpoints via the comments sections.
