Editorial Reviews

Review

"We've been running successful events worldwide for over a decade, and the simple truth is that the people who get chosen, and give great presentations, follow the rules in this book."

--Gina Blaber, VP Conferences, O'Reilly Media

From the Author

This started as a short list of things that separate great proposals from ones that don't get chosen. But to understand that, you need to know how conference operate, and what the organizers have in mind. By the time it was all written down, it had turned into the book you see here.

Companies spend countless hours honing proposals, courting event moderators, and investing in their participation at industry events. This short text takes you behind the scenes of conferences, showing you what it takes to propose a great presentation, prepare for its delivery, and get the most out of your time on stage.

I've been helping to run conferences for over a decade for companies like O'Reilly, Techweb, and GigaOm. In that time, I've probably reviewed over 10,000 proposals. While most of this book is based on my experiences, it includes tips and advice from other organizers who stand between you and the spotlight.
