Be a Speaker

Who speaks?

Anyone, as long as you have something to teach! We don't believe that VPs and CEOs are the only ones who should have a voice and if you have something to say we want to be where you say it. We welcome first time speakers to apply to speak.


Our talks fall into 5 categories:

  • Engineering
  • Product and Design
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Career Advancement

We're interested in hearing from all fields - whether you're in a small tech department in a big company or are an entrepreneur with an early-stage company with a ton of learnings - we're open to any subject that touches on tech and innovation.


Our talks are like a mini conference. You'll speak for 20-30 minutes and then take questions for 10-15 minutes. Specific and actionable topics usually work best. Try to teach something that the audience can implement at work that same day. 

Time Commitment

We start prepping with speakers about four weeks before the event and can work around your schedule as needed. 


Techfest is volunteer-led and all events are free so we don't have a budget to pay speakers. Our past speakers have found tremendous value in participating in events with our community and have learned a lot themselves!

Any questions, feel free to email

Don't be shy!

We review every proposal and get back to you within 2 weeks.

The form takes 2 minutes and you don't have to have a fully fleshed idea.
