Call for Proposals

Would you like to share your expertise, build your credibility, and gain exposure across the career industry? Here’s your chance!

Presentation submissions are now being accepted for the Career Thought Leaders professional development symposium to be held April 10–13, 2022, in Philadelphia, PA.

Proposals can be submitted at: https://forms.gle/n57AvXyZn3tvmbFK8 or using the form below.

The submission deadline is May 27, 2021.

The mission of Career Thought Leaders Consortium is to advance and professionalize the careers industry, improving career management, leadership development, and career agility of professionals worldwide.

More than 100 careers industry professionals attend the annual symposium, including coaches, personal brand strategists, and professional resume/profile writers. They are entrepreneurs or career services staff in higher-education, government, community-based agencies, corporate, and military settings.

We welcome proposals from experts in coaching, branding, resume writing, leadership development, and other career-related fields. We also welcome proposals from those who can share economic/job trends, recruiting trends, business development expertise (especially internet/social media marketing), and industry trends (specific information about healthcare, tech/big data, manufacturing, or other dynamic industries).

Career Thought Leaders is accepting submissions for presentations in the following areas:

  • Coaching topics related to personal branding, job search, interviewing, leadership development, career management/advancement, or coaching skill development.
  • Personal branding topics including defining personal brand, branding communications, social brand management, professional image management.
  • Social media profile writing (LinkedIn and beyond) and resume writing topics.
  • Social media trends/how-to presentations (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.) for career industry professionals, business owners, or clients.
  • Business and career-service operations topics (i.e. management, marketing, finance, pricing, add-on services, utilizing forms, best practices in processes/procedures, utilizing subcontractors or virtual assistants, etc.).
  • Topics addressing specific challenges faced by higher-education, community-based, corporate, government, and military career-services professionals.
  • Technology trends (related to business ownership or assisting clients).

Each session will be either 60 or 75 minutes. Please keep this time limit in mind when submitting your information.

Although many of the general session selections have been made for 2022, we welcome submissions for potential general session speakers.

Breakout session presenters are compensated through:

  1. An opportunity to build your credibility and international visibility, resume as a professional speaker, or business by speaking at an international conference.
  2. Promotion on the symposium website through a description of the speaking topic, bio, and a link to your company website.
  3. Complimentary entrance to the symposium, including all sessions and meals.
  4. Reduced price for exhibitor space or sponsorship.

Speakers will be determined by the conference committee for either breakout or general sessions and notified of selection status by June 30, 2021.

** We expect a very competitive pool and may select speakers for the 2022 event in Philadelphia, PA, and the 2023 & 2024 events in Europe and San Diego.

If you would like to be considered as speaker, please visit this link: https://forms.gle/n57AvXyZn3tvmbFK8 or using the form below.

We look forward to receiving and reviewing some great proposals!
