Professional wave riders spend day and night in the water refining their craft. Catching a wave is not about luck; it’s about hard work. It’s about achieving balance and thinking synergistically, extending yourself, and overcoming obstacles to propel you forward. This constitutes the theme for our upcoming conference, perfectly situated on the beautiful island of Oahu – a destination known worldwide for its surfing way of life.

We are looking for top-producing A/E/C marketing and business development leaders ready to share their ideas, experiences, and methodologies.

Speaker proposals are due September 5th, 2018.


Speaker FAQs

Send questions to programs@smps-prc.org.

Does my video submission need to be of a prior speaking engagement? 

While it's helpful if you have video of a previous speaking engagement, you can create a short video on your phone to address the topic you wish to speak on or introducing your speaking proposal. The reviewers want to see your enthusiasm for the topic, engagement, and communication style. 

Can I submit more than one speaker proposal?

Yes. You can submit as many as you like, but only one (1) will be selected.

We are proposing a panel session. Does each speaker receive the $250 stipend?

If you have multiple speakers for your proposed session, you will receive a max of $500 for the presentation regardless of the number of speakers.
