Do you want to speak at BriForum this year?

BriForum is special because 100% of the breakout sessions are led by folks from the community. Of course we'll have many of the favorites from years' past, but every year we several new folks and first-time speakers. And like always, if we accept the session that you'd like to present, then we'll pay 100% of your conference admission, airfare, and hotel. (And of course you'll be invited to attend our pre-conference speaker dinner to meet your fellow presenters.)

If you'd like to speak at either (or both) BriForum conferences in 2011, you may submit details of your session via the following online forms:

As always, feel free to email me (brian@brianmadden.com) if you have any questions about sessions or session ideas, or if you'd like to run any ideas by me before you submit. You're welcome to submit as many sessions as you want.
