2020 Call for Speakers

The deadline to submit your proposal is Friday, April 17 at 12 p.m. ET.

Are you a Leader, Groundbreaker, or Innovator looking to connect with your industry?

In 2019, Women & Automotive explored conscious leadership, how mistakes lead to success, leading with intention, advancing women to C-level, employee engagement, and more. If these topics mean something to you, then you should be speaking at Women & Automotive 2020. We are looking to thought leaders in the industry to give our audience insight into the next horizon of mentorship, inclusivity in auto, what leadership looks like in a new decade and more. Our attendees want actionable items that they can take back to their workplace and implement right away on topics like advancing women in their careers, respect in the workplace and cultivating a diverse, inclusive atmosphere across the industry.

New, never-before-seen presentations

Bring us something novel! We recognize that takes more time and effort on your part. But we can guarantee that the response will be much more positive, increasing the benefit that you receive from participation in the Women & Automotive Canadian Leadership Forum.

Don’t bring us your sales pitch

We know it’s tempting to spread the good word about your exciting new product or service. But our attendees simply do not respond well to a “salesy” presentation. They want actionable items that they can take back and immediately put to work. If you spend your time trying to sell them something, they’re probably going to wind up with a negative experience. If you give them concrete plans and goals instead, attendees will leave with a positive view of your company and will more likely reach out for more information from you and your team!
