Speaker Opportunities

2017 CXPA Insight Exchange Speaking Opportunities

CXPA’s annual Insight Exchange is an opportunity for members to come together to share best practices around our 6 CX Core Competencies as well as learn from one another and network.  With this in mind we have numerous opportunities for our members to share their stories.  Please take a look at the below speaker opportunities for more details on how you can potentially present to the over 300 CX professionals we expect in attendance.

For additional information, please connect with Lesley Lykins

Keynote Speakers

CXPA has three keynote speakers each year and these speakers are specifically selected and approached by our Executive Leadership Team.  Keynote speakers are senior executives, in some cases CEOs.  We strive for a unique mix of industries and CX stories.  If you have a connection to someone you believe would make an exceptional keynote presenter, please send that person’s name, title, company and a short description of their story to Lesley Lykins at lesley@cxpa.org for consideration by the Executive Leadership Team.  **Please note we do not pay speaker fees.

Breakout Sessions

During the event there are six 30-minute sessions presented by CX practitioners at organizations not selling CX products/services.  These speakers will present their CX case studies to groups of approximately 50 attendees.  CXPA’s volunteer planning committee is tasked with reaching out to these potential speakers and selecting a range of industries and stories that enhance learning around all six-core competencies.  Emphasis is placed on securing presenters that are CX Innovation Award winners/finalists.  If you or someone you know would make an exceptional breakout presenter, please complete the form here for consideration by our committee.

CXPA Show & Tell Sessions

A unique aspect of our event is the Show & Tell Session where between 25 -30 members each present to a small groups of 5-10 attendees 25 minutes around a specific CX tool, program or idea implemented with success at their companies.  Attendees have the opportunity to experience two of these presentations during each hour-long session.  The majority of these tables are filled by CX practitioners with companies that DO NOT sell CX products/services.

However, 7 tables are reserved in each of the two sessions (for a total of 14 spots) for members that provide CX products/services.  Members in this category will submit presentation proposals to the Insight Exchange Volunteer Show & Tell Committee for consideration.  These spots are competitive and the committee members will score unidentified submissions and select the top candidates to participate in each session.  If more tables need to be filled by CX providers the committee reserves the right to select runners up to participate beyond just the selected 7 for each session.  CX Providers DO NOT have to be Insight Exchange Sponsors to submit for one of these spots. **Please note these are very strictly run presentations around specific CX Tools, programs, etc. and CANNOT be sales pitches.  Very strict rules are adhered to in order to make this session very educational and productive for attendees.

Use the submission form here.

All CXPA sponsors from Platinum Sponsors to reception sponsors, book sponsors, lanyard sponsors, etc. have the opportunity this year to present in our Sponsor Show and Tell Session.  This session will run similarly to our traditional session as described above, but will be comprised of solely tables with sponsors presenting.  Each sponsor has this opportunity available and will have 25 minutes to present to small groups of attendees twice during the session.  It is advised that sponsors think clearly about the presentation and the proposal for that presentation to be listed in the program guide as attendees self-select which tables to attend.
