Call for Speakers
Enlightened Capitalist is seeking experienced, entertaining and engaging speakers for the following events.
“Enlightened Capitalist is not only an association for those who embrace the 5Ps concept of measuring success – people, planet, purpose, performance, and profit”, said Carol Wain, president. “It’s also a movement and a global hub where all individuals who are inspired to create tomorrow’s business today learn, collaborate, and co-create solutions to the global, national, regional, local and organizational challenges which can no longer be ignored.”
How Speakers are Chosen
Enlightened Capitalist prides itself on delivering experiential education which produces results.
We DO NOT accept:
Each event has a different format, so it is important to include the format for that event in your proposal. Also consider the audience.
Regardless of the event though, proposals much be engaging, entertaining and educational. Droning on and on with 500 PowerPoint slides doesn’t cut it with us or our audience.
Instead, think along the lines of a TEDTalk®, a morning news show segment or another event where you watched the speakers and you felt inspired and capable of doing what was suggested.
The proposals are evaluated in whole or in part on the following criteria:
Benefits of Speaking
