Breakout Speaker submission process
Speaker applications are now closed. The submission deadline was April 7, 2022.
The FinCon team is here to share their insight on applying to speak -- what makes a great speaker proposal, how speakers are selected, session details, and more!
What are FinCon attendees looking for?
Our attendees want to learn how to create better content, get that content in front of the right people, and profit from their efforts. They also want to learn what’s new and cutting edge in the personal finance and investing space. These are the elements we keep in mind when reviewing and selecting Breakout Speakers submissions.
Helping personal finance content creators and brands CREATE better content, GROW their audience, and PROFIT from their work is what these sessions are all about. Each track is includes both single-speaker and discussion panel sessions.
40 MINS + Q&A
Each year hundreds of people submit speaker proposals for breakout sessions. Submissions are evaluated and selected by a Speaker Selection Committee, which is a different group of people each year. The committee consists of a diverse group of FinCon Community members with expertise in a variety of content creation platforms (blogging, podcasting, YouTube, advisors, freelancing, etc) and niches within the Personal Finance space.
The #FinCon22 Speaker Selection Committee is made up of 8 community members, plus the FinCon CEO and Marketing Director. The committee includes bloggers, podcasters, YouTubers, an advisor, and freelancers. Because diverse representation is important, the group includes 4 female, 4 male, 4 BIPOC, and 4 white members.
Breakout session speakers at #FinCon21 were 40% BIPOC and 52% female.
