2023 International Conference
Speaker Proposal Form

Please fill in all required information as it will greatly assist the Program Committee in the selection process. All completed submissions should be submitted to The IIA’s 2023 International Conference Program Committee by 15 December 2022 via this online portal. Submissions submitted via email will not be accepted. You will receive an automatic confirmation that your submission was received. If you need assistance with this form, please email international.conference@theiia.org

Proposals will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • A proven track record as a speaker. The proposal form will include space where we encourage you to enter any additional comments, past speaker scores, or speaking references.
  • Include up-to-date data, case studies, and resources.
  • Provide practical strategies (real-world examples), tools, and/or take-home messages for implementation in the practice setting for successful outcomes (emphasize how to, what works, and why).
  • The ability to share leading practices and innovative tactics implemented in your internal audit function.
  • The level of interaction the session will provide the attendees, including Q&A, polling technology, case studies, and takeaway tools.
  • Refrain from sales or self-promotions of products and services.
  • Service providers and/or consultants are required to provide a current practitioner with whom they will be co-presenting. It is highly encouraged for service providers to include their co-presenter’s information in their submission, as this will be taken into consideration during the review process. If this information is not already identified in the submission and the proposal is accepted, the co-presenting practitioner will need to be identified within two weeks after presentation acceptance.
  • Presentations that can address a global audience with be given priority.

Speaking at the International Conference is a volunteer opportunity. Compensation for speaking fees and travel is not provided unless otherwise indicated. If you will need assistance with travel, please indicate that in your submission. All speakers receive a complimentary, non-transferable, full registration for the 2023 International Conference.
