Call for Speakers

CESSE needs you! The CREATIVE, the INNOVATIVE and the THOUGHT LEADERS. We need your GENIUS...your INSIGHTS...your EXPERIENCES and your KNOWLEDGE for ACCESSE19. 

So crack open that laptop, grab your mobile and fill out the Call for Speakers to let us know why 
YOU should speak at ACCESSE19

This year the topics for ACCESSE19 were crowdsourced from the CESSE members. We not only asked them what they wanted to learn about, but also to rank those topics. The ACCESSE Program Committee selected the highest-ranking ideas, developed a focus for each topic and now are looking for speakers to share their expertise and facilitate discussions which allow attendees to leave with concrete takeaways from ACCESSE19.
