Call for Speakers: BDPA Professional Development Webinar Series

A Call for Speakers is now open for the BDPA Professional Development Webinar Series. They are seeking presenters who are willing to share their experience and expertise with the BDPA community in Project Management, Business Analysis, Technical Development, Networking, Hardware, Software, Leadership, and IT Entrepreneurial topics. Speakers are asked to provide a 45-minute PowerPoint presentation with an additional 10 minutes of Q&A during the webinar.

If you are interested in participating as a webinar speaker, please submit the following:

  • A paragraph describing your topic and your experience in the area of your topic
  • The title for your presentation
  • Two or three specific points that webinar participants will get from the presentation that are applicable to their jobs or career development
  • A photo (optional)
  • Preferred month to give your presentation. Whether you prefer a lunch hour (11:45am - 1:00pm) or after work (6:30 - 7:45pm) webinar time slot. Webinars will be held at least two times throughout the week, the days of the week are flexible at this time.
  • Your contact information (name, title, employer, email address, phone number, and mailing address)
Your submission will be evaluated along with others that have been submitted and you will be notified of an available date and time slot. As a webinar speaker, you will receive a BDPA appreciation certificate and a thank you gift via mail after delivery of your presentation.

This is an opportunity to expose your professional expertise to co-workers, potential clients, or potential employers. It also lets you hone your presentation skills and articulate the work you do. BDPA seeks seasoned speakers as well as first time public speakers.

Once your presentation is accepted, you will be contacted and a BDPA representative will walk you through the preparation process. BDPA will publicize your presentation to their national membership. There will be a practice session utilizing the webinar application and a moderator will be available to manage the webinar session during your presentation.

For more information or to submit your topic, please contact National BDPA professional development manager Jacqueline Sanders.
