Elevate Talks

Speaker Application


To motivate and ELEVATE one another in a fun, fast-paced and creative presentation.

Elevate TalksTM will debut at our 2018 South Bay Women’s Conference. Six women will each present a 5-minute talk with 20 rapid-fire slides and only a few seconds per slide to keep things moving. The goal is for the presentation to end with an impactful Call-To-Action to inspire us to take action to elevate another woman.

What you need to know:

  • You will have 5 minutes to present your talk

  • You will have control to start slide 1 but then all your remaining slides will be on a timer to move forward every 15 seconds
  • Your final slide(s) must have a call to action related to our conference theme Unleashing Potential
