Speak At The Beat Live 2013

Something on your mind? Got an opinion, gripe or revelation you'd like to share? Here's your chance to personally address our influential and attentive audience of corporate travel and technology executives at The Beat Live this autumn by submitting a pitch for our 2013 Keynote Vote.

As in years past, at this year's The Beat Live conference in Miami, Sept. 30-Oct. 2, one of our keynote presentations will be delivered by a speaker chosen by popular vote among readers of The Beat.  Participants not chosen still have a chance to have their voices heard by being part of a panel discussion during the conference.

Here's the 2013 conference website.

If you would like to throw your name into the hat to deliver this year's Keynote Vote speech, email to David Jonas a max-250-word summary answering each of the questions below. Our editors will narrow down the proposals and open them to a reader poll later this summer. Speakers at The Beat Live enjoy free registration.

Questions to address:

• What will you speak about?

• Why should the audience listen?

• How will you avoid a sales pitch?

• What insight do you want The Beat readers to share in advance, to help you prepare for your presentation?

See you in Miami. Register here to attend.
