Create a Conference Proposal the Conference Wants and Accepts, Part 3: Write the Abstract

Johanna Rothman

Conference proposals always have a short abstract.

These fields help the potential audience realize your session is the one they must attend, out of the entire conference. I want to be the reason people come to a conference.

How I Make My Decisions to Speak at Conferences

Johanna Rothman

Consultants who make money speak at conferences. A conference that required international travel asked me to speak as a track talk about 45 days in advance.
