Speaker Proposal Guidelines

The first steps in planning your presentation are determining a topic and defining your audience. One thing that makes Dimensions unique is our attendees. Along with presentations that appeal to everyone, we offer sessions addressing the specific interests of new, experienced and expert users across the many industries we serve.

Successful presentations will:

  • Solve an industry-specific problem
  • Define challenges and how they were addressed
  • Demonstrate the value of new technology
  • Share productivity/profitability results
  • Help others to achieve similar success

Successful speakers are:

  • Technically proficient
  • Subject matter experts
  • Excellent communicators
  • Passionate about sharing knowledge
  • Eager to post about Dimensions on social media

Submitting a proposal is as easy as 1-2-3-4.


All speaker proposals must include four key elements to qualify for review: title, abstract, learning objectives and speaker biography.

Proposals must be written in English and contain no commercial sales pitches or promotions for products or companies.
