YeurDreamin' is the #1 community-led event for Salesforce professionals in Benelux on June 19th, 2020! It offers one day filled with multiple tracks and the best Salesforce speakers that the Ohana offers. The best part of YeurDreamin'? It is organized, run, and delivered by people from within the Salesforce community. And our generous sponsors enable us to provide this on a not-for-profit basis to you! Starting today, February 3rd, we are opening applications for speakers at YeurDreamin'. We have slots for panels, discussions, presentations, and workshops, while keeping true to our theme for attendees (including yourself!): Unleash your inner Trailblazer.
Our deadline for submission is 23:59 CET on Sunday, March 8th.
So what's the deal?
We have no preconceived ideas on what you want to talk about, so we welcome your proposals. When you submit your idea, you'll see options for defining your target audience and what sort of products you'll be talking about. Hopefully, they'll be self-explanatory, and it helps us to understand what you're trying to achieve, as well as getting a balance across the whole day.
One thing we'd like to point out is that we've got a few different rooms available, which will allow for different types of sessions.
If you present this session for the very first time, if it is unique or special, we will label your session "YeurDreamin' Original." This will earn you bonus points (and a unique fun stamp embedded in your slide deck and video recording) during selection.
Types of sessions available:
• Presentation or Panel: 20 or 40-minute sessions
• Workshops: 50 minutes, where attendees will bring their laptops along, and it should be highly interactive and hands-on!
Good to know:
You can submit more than one session (we will likely select a maximum of one session per presenter, though, to enable as many people to present as possible).
We ask of you to write an abstract, to help us know what your presentation is about. Want to know more about how to craft a fantastic abstract? Jodi Wagner's words of wisdom are a great place to start.
You can stop reading here, but – in case you are curious – what happens after you've submitted?
The Review Process
Review Round 1 (starting the evening of March 8th)
We review applications anonymously. No identifiable applicant personal information is revealed, to remove some of the danger of unconscious bias.
The submissions are each reviewed by a YeurSpeakin' panel, and scored based on the following criteria:
• The uniqueness of the Content/Presentation! (we want to introduce the concept of a "YeurDreamin' Original")
• Is the topic relevant and exciting for YeurDreamin attendees?
• Is the format of the presentation optimal for the content?
• Is the goal/structure of the presentation clear?
• Quality of the Content?
• Has this presentation been delivered before at another Dreamin-style event?
• Having fun and practical takeaways, are bonuses, although not strictly in our scoring criteria.
Around 70 applications go to Round 2
Round 2 (starting March 18th, and running until March 20th)
Applications are then re-reviewed, with the aim of sanity checking the first result and now with all submitted details.
If our reviewing panel hasn't seen you present before, or we want to discuss your abstract, we'll invite you for an (approx.) 15-minute demo/presentation of your content, with up to 2-3 weeks to prepare. i.e., those conversations will take place between 1st and 12th April.
On or around March 29th, we will inform successful applications.
June 19th: it's over to you! SHOWTIME!
