Have you innovatively applied technology to drive transformation in your organization?
The Summit Community wants to hear from you.
Every year, hundreds of business professionals take the stage at Summit NA to share business transformation learnings, experiences, and results from using smart tech, tools, and processes. This year is no different.
Summit NA will be packed full of 300+ sessions created and delivered by community members and industry leaders.
Are you a data maestro, a process ninja or just an every day business hero who wants to help others succeed?
We'd love to hear from you!
Submit the story you'd like to share at Summit NA. We'll send your proposal straight to the Summit NA Content Committee. And we might just see you on the stage!
Who Should Apply?
The speakers at Summit NA collectively represent the Microsoft user community. If you’ve leveraged Microsoft technology to do cool things in your organization, we encourage you to apply. You do not need to be a professional speaker.
*If you already submitted a 2021 session in DAC or by emailing SummitNA@dynamiccommunities.com, no need to resubmit! Your session is already being considered!
What Types of Sessions Will Be Accepted?
Summit NA attendees are looking for sessions that inform, influence and accelerate capabilities.
Think about your experience and why it matters to the audience. Consider what you want people to take away from your talk. Is your goal to inspire, educate, motivate or drive actionable outcomes?
If your goal is to promote a product or deliver a sales pitch, this isn't the right platform. Consider sponsoring Summit instead.
What to Include in Your Abstract
Put some time into crafting your title - you want this to stand out to the audience. It can either clearly communicate the main topic you cover in your session, or use a clever angle to hook someone into reading the session description.
Then summarize your session into a short paragraph. Let the audience know what you'll be talking about, and the problem you will help them solve.
Add 3-5 takeaways (i.e. things attendees will learn from your session). These should be actionable learnings they can take back to their organizations after Summit and apply immediately.
