Want to speak at the PASS Summit, but haven’t been selected?

The Speaker Idol may be your answer to how to get to the PASS Summit as a speaker. The Speaker Idol competition, in it’s second year now with PASS, will be held throughout the conference with four different rounds. During the competition people who haven’t spoken at the PASS Summit will be giving 5 minute presentations to a panel of judges and the audience. The competitors are competing for the grand prize, a speaking slot at the PASS Summit 2016.

What do you need to do to get into speaker idol?  Step 1 is to fill out the application form.  It’s got a few basic questions about where you’ve presented before and how to get in contact with you.  That’s pretty much it.  From the people that submit for the Speaker Idol we’ll select 12 people to be in the competition.

The full rules for being eligible can be found here.  With the rules as they are written probably 95% of PASS attendees are eligible as are most people who have spoken at an event (other than the PASS Summit) before.

The Speaker Idol is a great way for those speakers who aren’t as well known in the community to get in front of a national audience, which will include members of the content committee (the folks who select the sessions for next year).

So if you’ve ever wanted to speak at the PASS Summit, this is your chance.  Get signed up, and get ready to present.  If you don’t register you can’t earn yourself a speaking spot at the PASS Summit 2016.
