Session-Starters!

Use one of our “Session-Starters” below to jumpstart your session description!  
We’ve created a list of sessions that will probably be of interest (no guarantees!) to attendees, even though they have not yet been proposed.  Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps!
  1. Peruse the list below, and find a topic where you have experience or would like to lead a discussion.
  2. Copy and edit the title and create a new description with your own unique perspective on the topic.  Make it interesting since attendees will vote for session.
  3. Submit your session proposal on our call for sessions form.

There – wasn’t that easy!?!  And if you’d like further inspiration, check out the topics proposed so far this year thru March 20.
