About the Book
Do you dream of speaking at a conference? You want to share your successes---and maybe your failures. You can learn to write a conference proposal that has a good chance of being accepted. Instead of starting with the title, start with the outcomes. When you do, you'll craft a proposal that the conference will take.
- Start with the outcomes
- Create a compelling abstract
- Invite readers with your title
- Connect to your readers with your bio
While I can't guarantee the program committee will accept your proposal, you have a much better chance with these ideas.
