CES 2016 Is Looking For Speakers

Professional Development No Comments on CES 2016 Is Looking For Speakers 46

One of the best ways to be recognized as an “expert” in a field is to be a speaker at major events. Especially in the tech world you can become very knowledgeable in an area quickly, and then become the go to person when people need support.  By speaking at events you put yourself in front of 20-200 participants that need information about whatever it is you are talking about.  Many highly niche consultants use speaking gigs as a highly effective form of advertising.

CES will be accepting speaking applications from June 1 to the 30th. They are looking for speakers for the following topics:

  • 3D Printing
  • 4K Ultra HD
  • Automotive Technology
  • Business in CE
  • Drones/ Unmanned Systems
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Enterprise Technology
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Privacy/ Security
  • Product Design
  • Robotics
  • Sensors/ Wearables
  • Smart Home
  • Startups
  • Technology Impacts on Society
  • Virtual Reality/ Augmented Reality
  • Wireless & Mobility
  • Women Take on Tech

You will notice that these topics are not exactly PhD level concepts. If you have real experience in the area, and something to add to the overall conversation being accepted as a speaker can be invaluable on your resume.

P.S.

As someone who has attended countless events let me say that you should not feel intimidated about speaking.  At least 50% of all speakers barely know anything outside of their script.  Being a speaker is something that is perceived as impressive when in reality it generally isn’t.

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of GeekBrainDump.com and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.
