First-time Speaker Mentoring Initiative

Please use this form to volunteer to mentor a first-time speaker

We want to help people:

  • Decide what topics they should/could share
  • Write submissions that give them the best chance of being accepted
  • Present their topics in the best possible way

Before you start, here are a few things that you should know:

  • All mentees will enter the process through a 15 minute video call. We need mentors to run these structured calls, for which there will be training.
  • Mentees that are accepted for mentoring will be paired with a mentor to help them craft their submission.
  • Mentees whose submissions are accepted will be offered additional coaching while developing their session.
