Call for Speakers

We are looking for passionate, capable speakers to deliver sessions, and workshops that allow attendees to walk away with actionable education. We are looking for early adopters and innovators who can inspire us with what’s new, what’s coming and how participants can broaden their competencies in an ever-changing and increasingly complex digital environment.

MARCOM Annual Conference is Canada’s only marketing and communications conference developed exclusively for the non-profit and public sectors.

It is produced and presented by the Centre of Excellence for Public Sector Marketing whose mission it is to advance the marketing and communications disciplines in the public and non-profit sectors. This conference is just one of the many ways that we at CEPSM strive to move this mission forward. CEPSM’s mantra has always been “Strategy before Tactics”, and this serves as the overarching theme and focus for the content at MARCOM. Marketing is too often dismissed as a tactical function as opposed to the strategic, research-driven, outcome-based, user-centric process that it should be. We want to ensure that MARCOM provides attendees with examples of these in practice, while ensuring that the content also reflects the rapid innovation and disruption that is happening in the marketing and communications fields.

You may apply for a speaking role in the following formats:

  1. 1/2 Day Workshop in the morning or afternoon of June 6
  2. 1-hour concurrent session, including Q&A on June 7
  3. 75-minute roundtable on June 7

Deadline: December 22, 2017

Thank you in advance for your help in delivering our 20th Anniversary edition of MARCOM Annual Conference!
