Each topic /speaker must be submitted as a separate proposal. Proposals received after the deadline for 2004 will be placed on a waiting list to be reviewed for future events or in case of an opening due to a cancellation.


The conference is an educational forum attended by professionals expecting to learn valuable information that will enhance their development and interests about specific subjects and areas. Presenters may NOT use a conference session as a platform for commercial sales, self-promotion or as a forum to criticize competitors. Presenters are expected to share information in an educational and non commercial manner.


The presenter must be confident that he/she can provide comprehensive information while sustaining the audience's attention. Please outline your teaching experience in an educational setting, executive education and training medium, conference or public speaking venue.
Presenters must be thoroughly involved in the industry and have extensive knowledge of their subject. This combined with a willingness to give this knowledge and share their point of view and data are important factors.


Approved speaker proposals are non cancelable. Presenters agree that only in case of emergency will they not fulfill their commitment to present. Substitutions to be considered must be of equal caliber to original presenter and are subject to acceptance by conference management.


The conference is divided into TRACKS and includes individual 60 minute seminars and 3 hour tutorials. Seminars will run April 14 & 15, 2004 and tutorials will take place April 13, 2004.


All decisions of the Conference Director and Advisory Board are final. Please complete and submit your proposals immediately. Proposals will be considered and accepted on a first received basis and speakers will be notified as accepted.

Selection will be based on subject relevance; educational content; in particular concentrating on case studies, real market experience, and quantified business cases.

Please note it is impossible to call and discuss each submission to ask for more details. It is therefore extremely important that you give as much information as possible in the form below.
