Speaker Appliation Form and Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in speaking at the Schaumburg Health Summit!  Please fill out the application below to help us learn more about you.


Do you have a health-related topic that is different than the status quo? We want to hear from you!


We are looking to find speakers that can present on a health-related topic to an audience of community members, most of which will be from non-medical or health fields. In other words, it is a MUST that the lay population can understand your content.


Requirements for speaking (if accepted):

  • Must be present for the entire summit
  • Must submit a full version of your talk via video by April 1, 2019
  • 5-18 minute talk (absolute max)
  • Going "deep" on one single topic, not "wide" on many


*Ideas that are either less likely to be accepted or not accepted at all:

  • Excessively vague or generalized
  • Pseudoscience
  • Personal belief systems lacking research
  • Purely-motivational
  • Uncredentialed coaching
  • Excessively-discussed or already ubiquitous
  • Solely about overcoming adversity or obstacles
  • “I did it, and so can you.”
  • Corporate, political, or religious agendas

*These are directly from TEDx.com and we think they are great guidelines for our speakers, too.


Please fill out the brief application below and include a link to a 3-minute (max) video of you selling us on the idea for your talk.


**Applications are being accpeted through Friday, February 15, 2019. All applciations submitted after this date will be included in our 2020 applicant pool.**
