Show Stoppers

  • I will not present at a panel or a conference line-up with an obvious lack of diversity, or if the conference organizers have expressed a dislike for diversity.
  • I expect the conference to have and enforce a code of conduct.
  • I don’t “pay to play”. As a presenter, I expect full access to the event.
  • I am not interested in sponsored speaking slots.

My Deliverables

  • A fitting talk to the outlined duration and time
  • Available to conference attendees
  • Available for promotional parts of the event (unless significantly conflicting with setup or preparation)
  • Promote my presence at your event
  • Publish my slides and materials after the talk

My Setup

  • I’d like to use my own computer and clicker
  • My slides are 16:9 format
  • I only send my slides in advance if there is live translation or signing.
  • My presentations may require sound – please check with me

My Expectations

  • Prime speaking slot for the talk
  • Professional stage setup
  • Recorded and published talks will be properly edited and promoted

Cost and Payment

  • I do not expect to be paid for my presentations – If you have funds for speaker payment, please use this for diversity tickets instead.
  • If possible, I’d like the conference to cover my hotel and travel – If you cannot provide accommodations and travel, I would like my employer to receive sponsorship for picking up the bill. Additionally, if I’m traveling trans-Atlantic, I would like to add an extra day for jetlag, to assure the best possible presentation for your event.


  • I am happy to participate in marketing videos (e.g.1, 2) and blog posts for your event.
  • I do not have any food allergies or accessibility restrictions
