If you can engage, inspire and inform an audience, we’d like to hear from you! 

We would ask that you have an existing relationship with the Business & Creative Community.

Applications will close on ________. 

Program: The tentative schedule will have keynote sessions, TedX style talks, breakout sessions and workshops for which there is an application process.

BAI is currently accepting break-out session speaking proposals for our 2022 conference in Miami. Our audience of Transitioning Service Members, Entrepreneurs, Creatives, Influential Leaders, and Military Advocates seek dynamic speakers who offer new and innovative ways of doing business.

Please submit a proposal based on your expertise, not what you think we want to see. We are looking for concrete takeaways that can be applied by the attendees. No fluff – just useful stuff based on your experience and success.

Alright, let’s get down to the details.

We are looking for:

  • Thought Leaders
  • Seasoned Entrepreneurs
  • Visionary Futurists
  • C-level executives
  • DOD & Government Officials
  • Experienced Moderators & Panelists

We’re interested in inspiring and engaging stories. Think about what makes your story relevant, why it matters, the value it provides the attendees, and how it will be remembered.

Remember your end goal – is it to motivate, educate, or raise awareness?

We are looking for content that fits into one of our tracks. Pay attention to the details as first impressions matter! You want to ensure that your submission stands out from the crowd.

Your session should be engaging, thought-provoking and present a clear idea or message.

Are you really a keynote speaker, would people travel or pay to hear you speak? Or is your talk more appropriate in a roundtable setting?

You can present your story in several different ways. Please review the options below and identify what format best communicates the message.

We will take this into consideration when programming the agenda.

  • Keynote Speaker – When I announce events, people travel from across the country to hear me speak. I have a following that’s active and engaged. I’m a celebrity, accomplished leader, or a disruptor changing norms and practices.
  • Breakout Session – People regard me as a subject matter expert and my talking points are focused on specific segments. I’m capable of delivering high value talks in short periods of time.
  • Panel Sessions  I have an idea for a panel that’s relevant for attendees.
  • Workshops – I can deliver incredible value but my subject requires more than an hour to deliver.
  • Roundtables – I’m best hands on and serving small groups.
