Apply To Speak
Out of the Lab onto the Stage
It’s been quite a while since we’ve all been able to gather. Future Proof wants to know what you’ve been working on. The 2022 festival will be the perfect time to showcase your talents with the world.
We know this is the first time many of you will be applying to speak at a wealth festival. We wanted to give you a few tips, share a couple of points and a sneak peek of what we’re looking for in our speakers.
We could talk for hours about the new formats and unique content venues we’re creating, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t start by going through the application process.
We’ve created an online application that will allow you to tell us your story, why you should be on the Future Proof stage and submit supporting documents. Of course, there are a few rules and regulations. You only have 100 words to tell your story, so make them count. You can only share one link or supporting document. Should you submit more than one, we will only review the first link. Most importantly, due to the number of applications, it is impossible for us to set up a call or respond to each application.
We are now accepting applications; no reason to delay! Submitting early does not guarantee anything. We will place a greater emphasis on the applications we receive early where ideas may be duplicated.
All Genres Welcome
We aren’t just looking for the next great investment idea. We know there are a million and one of those. Instead, think of the large wealth ecosystem and how it’s being influenced by the world around us. We are taking applications on everything from the latest in technology to content creation and beyond. In addition, we’ll be building a speaker lineup that reflects the Future Proof value of diversity and inclusion.
Cross Your T’s & Dot Your I’s
We understand everyone wants to get their application in early, but be sure you don’t omit anything. It’s easy to get so focused on the 100-word description that we forget to send supporting documents or we leave off contact details. We will still review those applications but, again, greater emphasis will be placed on applications that provide a full picture of yourself and your topic.
Have Some Fun With It
At Future Proof, we take ourselves seriously, but we also love to have a good time and be entertained. We are looking for speakers who wow us, make us laugh and have a topic we believe will be entertaining for our audience.
There’s no perfect approach or perfect application, so don’t stress about it. Do your best to provide the information we’re asking for and go from there.
Please note: Future Proof does not cover the cost of travel, accommodation or any other costs associated with speaking at Future Proof.
