Call for Speakers: SharePoint Summit 2012 (Toronto)

October 17th, 2011 2 comments

On behalf of the SharePoint Summit Board of Directors, I am excited to send out this Call for Speakers for SharePoint Summit 2012 which is being held in Toronto from May 14th to 16th, 2012.

This is a great opportunity for you to showcase your expertise and knowledge of SharePoint as part of a group of SharePoint experts and thought leaders. With over 600 people expected to attend SharePoint Summit 2012, this will be one of the SharePoint community’s most important events.

All speaker applications will be presented to the selection committee which has been created in order to ensure that the topics and speakers being submitted will bring value and help attendees in optimizing their SharePoint installations. To meet the needs of our attendees, we want to target presentations for both technical and business-oriented audiences. This means we are looking for presentations that will not only help developers and IT management plan and architect successful SharePoint solutions, but we also want to pay particular attention to topics that will help business decision makers, business analysts and information architects ensure that they can use SharePoint as a platform to drive business value. Clear abstract and proper level (100,200, etc) is very important in the selection process.

Please take a look at the suggested topic areas below as you prepare your application submission. Consider also whether your presentation is directed to those who are new to SharePoint (Level 100) or those who are more advanced in their knowledge and expectations (Level 300). We are looking for a good mix of content to address attendees with differing levels of experience.

Presentations will be categorized by level, target audience, and general topic:

100 – Introduction
200 – Intermediate
300 – Advanced
