Call for Speakers: SXS HYBRID 2021

The date for next year is set: On June 19, 2021, the STICKS & STONES Family will meet again! Look forward to over 100 LGBT+ friendly exhibitors, 50 talks, panels, and coachings, and 3,000 visitors and like-minded people. Due to Corona, we’re going hybrid in 2021, which means that there will be two events. You can meet us face-to-face at the Verti Music Hall in Berlin (with all the necessary hygiene measures) or log in to our global digital event. You can secure your ticket right now!

As always, we are looking for exciting speakers: Would you like to become part of the STICKS & STONES family and give a talk or participate in our panels? Or do you know someone who would like to do so? Then we are looking forward to your submission!

Which topics are interesting?

We are looking for presentations that entertain, educate or inspire. Past experience has shown that our audience is most interested in practical tips: How do I write my resume? How do I negotiate my salary? How do I present myself in a confident way? How do I use social media to build my own brand? Team building, new work, work and corona, stress management, prejudice: We’re passionate about any talk that equips us with practical skills for our modern work lives or that particularly affects us as LGBT+. (These were the talks at the last STICKS & STONES)

Here’s how your talk works

Presentations are between 20 and 30 minutes in length – including audience Q&A. Our speaker program will also work hybrid: a part of our programm will be available as a digital live stream, and the other talks will be held in the Verti Music Hall. We’ll let you know in advance how our talks will work in detail and what technology you’ll need. In our registration form you can indicate your preference whether you would like to speak at the Verti Music Hall or digitally.

What we offer

• An opportunity to perform on our digital stage or in the Verti Music Hall.
• A detailed speaker profile on our website and we will include your talk in our social media activities.
