Call For
Speakers & Facilitators

The Smart Sustainable Cities Convention 2019 will have three strands - Transport, Housing and Assisted Living. There will be panel sessions on each of these during the day. Each panel will have four members who will each speak for 15 minutes, after which there will be a question and answer session.

The conference team invites suitably qualified professionals to join these panels. You will have substantial experience in your chosen area and have worked for, or be currently employed by, a local authority, a government department, a related public body or an organisation in the charitable sector.  You will be a confident speaker to audiences of up to 250 professionals.

 To apply to join a panel please send a brief summary of the topic you would like to present in no more than 150 words. Please provide a bio or CV and/or a link to your LinkedIn profile. Send to mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will acknowledge your application but will not make a final decision on the panellists until later in the year.

In parallel with the panel sessions, there will be 45-minute round-table discussions in a separate area. The purpose is to allow delegates to share best practice on the issues and challenges that they meet in their professional lives. Delegates will book their places in advance using the conference app. As facilitator your role will be to briefly introduce participants and set out the discussion topic, taking no more than five minutes to do so. You will then facilitate the discussion, keeping order, summarising and making sure that everyone gets a chance to speak. A rapporteur will be present to record the main points of the discussion, which will be published later on the conference website. Depending on demand, you may have the opportunity to present your topic more than once during the day.

The conference team invites suitably qualified professionals to facilitate these discussions. As with panel speakers, we are looking for communicators who have substantial experience in one of the conference themes and have worked for or are a current officer of, a local authority, a government department, a related public body or an organisation in the charitable sector.  You will be a confident manager of meetings.
