How do I get to speak at TechEd Europe 2005? That’s a question I get all the time when I tell people I’m involved in the content selection for TechEd.
The way to do this is by submitting a session on the ‘call for papers’ site which you can find here:
Now, if you are interested, I need to warn you just a little bit. I don’t want to scare you though.
- Only few are selected. We get many more talks submitted than we can possibly accept.
- The bar to enter is high. For speakers who have been speaking at previous TechEd’s, we’ll check those scores and for people who are new to speaking at TechEd, we usually ask for scores from other events at which that person spoke (in English) before.
- TechEd is an event that people pay for to attend and therefore the audience is expecting the highest possible quality. So if you get to speak at TechEd, be prepared!
