Speaker call for submissions - Nonprofit Storytelling Conference

Do you want to speak at
the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference?

Here's our process.

We do things a little bit differently here.  

We plan the story arc of the Storytelling Conference based on what our guests would like to learn and experience. Then we craft the conference sessions to meet those very specific needs.  Our final step is to search for the experts who match the qualifications requested by our guests.   These experts are usually highly recommended and repeatedly referred to us.  We look for diverse approaches and different perspectives so we would love to hear from you!

Just so you know…

In order to create the sense of family the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference is known for, speakers arrive a day early for orientation and coaching.  Speakers also stay for the entire conference to be available to the guests in an ongoing collaborative atmosphere.  

We encourage speakers to call on one another during sessions to illuminate an issue and/or bring a particular storytelling perspective to the group.  We share the wisdom in the room.

We also invite all of our speakers to participate in StoryLabs.  

In StoryLabs, conference guests get to ask questions of the speakers in a sit down, one-on-one environment.

Guests LOVE this opportunity.

Storytelling conference speakers must be prepared to pay their own travel and accommodations.

We realize, we ask a lot of the experts and the guests LOVE YOU for it!

First time presenters pay for their own travel and accommodations.  If our guests find your information compelling, relevant, and immediately useful in their organizations, they’ll want you back!

If your content fits into the story arc a future Nonprofit Storytelling Conference, and you are able to return, we are able to offer a travel stipend and accommodations.


With that in mind, if you can answer a few questions, that would help us know where and when you may fit into future conferences: 

  1. When did you learn the power of storytelling in your profession?
  2. Who is your ideal audience?  What is their biggest struggle?
  3. When your session is over, what knowledge, tools and step-by-step strategies will your audience leave with?
