THE 2023 CALL FOR PROPOSALS IS NOW CLOSED. If you have landed on this page, thanks so much for your interest in speaking opportunities at FWD50. We are no longer accepting submissions for our 2023 faculty. The 2024 CFP will open in the Spring.
Propose a talk
Before you propose a talk, please read this carefully:
FWD50 isn't a typical conference.
- We expect your talk to be nonpartisan, and not a sales pitch.
- We work closely with you to ensure that your content is useful and well-prepared, and that you’re practiced and easy to understand. (Seriously, we've spent countless hours training speakers and iterating on content.)
You can suggest yourself, or someone else, to deliver a talk. We’re specifically looking for workshops, skills sessions (you teach a skill in 60 minutes, online), deep-dive sessions, and Ask Me Anything (AMA) experts for candid conversations about digital transformation. For topical inspiration, read the results of our annual government survey.
We also run Book Clubs with renouned authors, and year round FWD50 Extras online workshop content, so if you're interested in those instead, be sure to reference that in your application.
