Speaker Guidelines & Information
Thank you so much for your interest in being a speaker at Evolution 2020!
Before you submit your application, here are some key details about what you’ll commit to giving and receiving as a presenter at this event.
My commitment to our speakers
Evolution 2020 is a fully collaborative environment. While I do have an overall arc of teaching material for attendees, I know that everyone’s experiences will be enriched by hearing your story of evolution and learning about the magic you bring to the world. I want you to bring your full self forward and be seen for the stellar creator you are!
To that end, I include for all of our speakers:
A pre-event interview video broadcast to our Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram audience, which you can share and add to your own channels.
Inclusion of your info and links in event marketing.
A color 1/2 page ad in our workbook which can include an invitation to connect or a free product or service.
The option to insert printed materials or goodies in our gift bag.
The option to feature books, oracle cards, products, or other items in our pop-up store.
And, of course, the opportunity to share your genius on our stage in front of our fully-engaged audience of female entrepreneurs, changemakers, and leaders!
It was an honor and a pleasure to take the stage at Evolution 2019 as a guest speaker!
It was an incredible opportunity for me to speak directly to my ideal audience about my journey from solo practitioner to global leader, and to share a few of my most powerful revelations along the way. After the event, my schedule was full with consultation calls, collaboration calls, and “I need to keep you in my life” calls! I know the connections made at the event were just the beginning of a lifelong community impact.

In return for all of this juicy opportunity, I ask that:
You invest your energy in this event.
Our baseline speaker fee is $2,000, which includes your personal event ticket and VIP pass—however, you can offset this cost by inviting the aligned women in your community! For every ticket someone in your network purchases, you will receive $400 off your speaking fee — which means that if you invite 5 people, you’ll speak for free, and still get all the perks! (Why do we do it this way? Because it’s important that all of our speakers contribute an equal amount of energy to the collective flow—and money is also energy!)
Your speaker fee, minus any credits for invitations, will be due in full 30 days before the event begins. (If you have purchased an event ticket, the cost of your ticket will also be deducted from your speaker fee.)
You don’t sell from stage. This is an opportunity to personally connect with our audience and share your wisdom in a narrative format, not talk about your products or teach your signature processes. Think about this as a TEDx talk, not a webinar. :-) But don’t worry: we will provide LOTS of opportunities for attendees to get in touch with you if they feel connected to you and your work!
You join in on the promotion process. Again, it’s part of our value system that our collective of speakers bring an equal amount of energy and intention to this event. A piece of that is your commitment to spread the word to your audience, friends, and clients. We’ll make it super easy with pre-written social posts, emails, and images—all you need to do is follow the promo schedule!
You are present for the entire event. I know that travel and timing can get complicated around events, but as a speaker it’s vital that you are present and visible throughout the whole event—including any VIP or evening events—not just for your speaking slot. This creates an energetic solidarity and shows audience members that you’re there for them, not just for you. It also gives you an opportunity to connect personally with everyone who LOVED what you shared on stage!
