The deadline to submit topic proposals for the 2012 Crittenden Real Estate Finance Conference has expired and the agenda is finalized.
Should there be any cancellations and you would like to be considered as a panelist, please submit a bio to email@example.com. Be sure to include the topic session numbers in which you are interested and you will be added to the wait list for speaking positions. Thank you for your interest. You must fill out an application to be considered, even if you have spoken for Crittenden in the past. Please thoroughly read all instructions before beginning your proposal.
As you prepare your proposal keep in mind it is important all speakers are able to offer advice and anecdotes that convey first-hand application and experience—not just theory—on the topics they address.
To avoid the same take on expected topics, priority will be given to those who can prove that they offer fresh, inventive and unconventional substance and style to their content and delivery. Please have testimonials and/or session evaluations from past speaking events ready to provide.
We maintain a strict “no selling from the stage” policy that all speakers must follow. All sessions are conducted in a panel format and are one hour in length. No solo sessions will be conducted. The moderator is responsible for obtaining his or her panelists. Upon request, Crittenden will also assist in panelist placement. Crittenden does not suggest specific topics to those sending proposals. Priority will be given to proposals submitted with complete topics, talking points and recommended moderators and panelists.
Crittenden does not cover travel expenses or provide fees or honorariums for speakers.
