Speaker Opportunities

SuncoastHR welcomes your application to provide our chapter with topics that will allow us to advance the human resources profession and the capabilities of all human resources professionals to ensure that HR is an essential and effective partner in developing and executing organizational strategy. 

In order to be considered as a speaker for SuncoastHR, the following information must be provided. Submissions will be reviewed to determine if a speaker is a good fit for the SuncoastHR programming year. Please keep in mind that due to the high volume of inquiries SuncoastHR receives from prospective speakers, not all submissions will receive a follow-up communication.



SuncoastHR does not offer a fee or pay expenses for chapter program speakers. However, the size and decision-making authority of our audience provides an outstanding opportunity for speakers to increase their visibility and establish valuable contacts with a targeted HR audience.

SuncoastHR reserves the right to negotiate speaker fees and expenses for presenters delivering educational content in full or partial day formats.

Any material that the speaker intends to use/distribute as part of their presentation must be approved in advance by the Programs Director of SuncoastHR.

Speakers must refrain from making overt statements or pointed humor that disparages the rightful dignity and social equity of any individual group.

If your proposal is selected, you will be contacted to make arrangements to add your presentation to the programs calendar. If your proposal is not selected for immediate addition to the programs calendar, it will be kept on file for possible future consideration.
Speakers are prohibited from using the podium as a place for direct promotion of a speaker’s product, service or monetary self-interest. Soliciting attendee contact information is not allowed. Contact initiated by the attendee is completely acceptable.

Videotaping and audiotaping are prohibited unless approved in advance by SuncoastHR at least 30 days prior to the presentation.

Speakers should not distribute price lists or discuss their professional fees during the presentation.
