Office 365 and SharePoint administrators, business users, architects, developers, and other professionals that work with Microsoft and cloud technologies, will meet at the Office 365 Nashville event on May 9th, 2020 at the Microsoft Office located at 8 City Blvd, Nashville, TN.
Join us as we celebrate our 7th annual Nashville event!
Thank you for your interest in presenting at Office 365 Saturday Nashville (#o365Nashville) scheduled for Saturday, May 9 2020 at the Nashville Microsoft office. 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 March 13 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 March 13th 2020
When Will Selected Sessions Be Announced?
Selections will be announced by March 20th 2020
If Selected, What Time Commitment is Expected of Me?
Day of the Event
We ask our speakers to commit to spending the ENTIRE DAY at the event in order to provide our attendees an opportunity to interact with you informally throughout the day, as well as at the SharePint. Please plan to attend the Welcome Session on Saturday morning and ESPECIALLY plan to stay for the SharePint immediately following. If your schedule will not allow you to commit to attending the entire SharePoint Saturday (including the SharePint), please email us at email@example.com and let us know.
Also, please plan to be in Nashville by 4 PM on Friday, May 8 2020 for a Speakers’ Dinner. This is entirely optional but you will be really missing out on a fun evening of socializing if you don’t attend.
