  • Have a significant knowledge and expertise of the subject area;
  • Have sufficient presentation skills to effectively communicate
  • Do not engage in excessive commercial presentations of their organization;
  • Be conscious of the time limitation of their presentation;
  • Note the recommendations (below) for preparation of PowerPoint presentations; and

TPE is committed to presenting state of the art educational conferences, workshops, and seminars that deliver valuable ideas and information to our attendees. Historically, TPE’s philosophy has been to select conference speakers from both the public and private sectors who represent the breadth of the field, differing levels of experience, and who are highly recommended as communicators and authorities in their fields of expertise. Presentations made by volunteer professionals are considered contributions to the industry; thus, travel/expenses are not reimbursed except in exceptional circumstances.

The registration fee for all speakers is complimentary for each day of the conference. Speakers do not have to fill out a registration form.   TPE has developed the following set of standards and guidelines to which all speakers and moderators are expected to adhere. Individuals who violate these standards and guidelines will not be invited to speak at future TPE conferences.
