How it works

  • Each breakout room session will follow the 20-20-20 style: a 20-minute presentation followed by 20 minutes of Q&A, and then a 20 minute group discussion. 
  • However, we want to give you autonomy…this is your presentation after all! The format of your 50-55-minute session is ultimately up to you! We will also provide a trained EmCee in each breakout room to assist you during your presentation.
  • You may present individually or with a group. If your suggested topic has already been accepted by someone else, we may ask you and that person to consider presenting as a panel or group workshop
  • Once you fill out and submit this application, our team will contact you by email within two weeks to accept or decline your application. If accepted, we will help you continue to prepare for the Language Summit and send you your next steps.  
  • If you are accepted, do not forget to invite three of your friends using our complimentary registration, as well as attend our VIP cocktail event. We want to connect top industry leaders and provide you the chance to meet other leading innovators like you.

The deadline for applying is Monday, December 14th at 11:59pm MST.  However, please apply at your earliest convenience to be able to secure a spot. Space is limited.

Once again, thank you for applying to present at the Language Summit 2021. If you have any comments or questions about the process for applying to become a presenter, please send an email to ashley@languagesummit.com.
