Thank you for your interest in presenting at Office 365 Saturday Nashville (#o365Nashville) scheduled for Friday, May 8 2020. We are planning a day filled with fun, education, socializing, and a few other surprises that are sure to make O365Nashville an event to remember!

Speaker submissions are due no later than Monday April 10 2020. 

What Kind of Sessions Do We Need?  

We are looking for Office 365 presentations: Microsoft Teams, Power Platform, SharePoint, security, Office 365 admin, etc. We would also welcome Professional Development sessions and panel or group sessions giving attendees the opportunity to interact with presenters.  

Technical presentations showing code examples and demos are always great, but we’re often asked for sessions targeted at end-users and business decision makers which help them learn how to use Office 365 in creative ways, how things work (and don’t work), and whatever else they need to know to get the most out of Office 365 within their organization. Sessions like “How [My Company] Solved [Something] Using SharePoint” tend to be very popular.  

Many people are interested to see and learn about Office 365 and the latest SharePoint version. However, the Nashville community as a whole is still very actively engaged with previous version of SharePoint, so in addition to Office 365 content, possibly consider submitting sessions relevant to attendees who are using on-prem SharePoint.  

How Much Time Will I Have to Present?  

Sessions will be approximately 60-minutes in length.   

How Can I Improve My Chances Of Being Selected?

First and foremost, think of your audience. You are writing your session titles and abstracts for the event attendees not for the people picking sessions. What you enter on the speaker submission form will be the exact text included on the printed program and schedule..  

Submit more than one session! Even the best speakers might not be selected if they submit only one session. Between limitations in tracks and schedule, there are many good sessions that we simply cannot accept.   

Do not try to pass off your company product demo as a session. This is something every SharePoint Saturday event takes very seriously. If you feel your session abstract may sound like a product demo, please explain on the submission form why it is not. If your session is a product demo, do not bother submitting it.  

When is the Latest I Can Submit a Session?

O365Nashville 2020 Call for Speakers will close on Friday April 10th 2020

When Will Selected Sessions Be Announced?  

Selections will be announced by April 16th 2020 

If Selected, What Time Commitment is Expected of Me?  

Day of the Event  

You will present your session LIVE via Microsoft Teams to your audience. We will work to have a moderator who will help with questions in during your session. Please stay and attend other sessions, supporting speakers and attendees.
