Steering Committee

The symposium steering committee will be chaired by Stewart Room.

The selected speaker community will be drawn from a broad cross-section of leading experts and will be expected to provide a detailed conference paper on their topic of circa 5000 words.

Benefits for speakers and return on investment

This symposium takes a unique approach to speaker benefits. As well as being subject to a rigorous selection process involving peer review, which emphasises the truly expert status of the speakers, by providing a written paper you will further cement your expert status in the market.

Your paper can act as a calling card for the help and assistance that you will be able to provide others, such as the buyers of expert services and support, and a reference point for press and media inquiries. We expect that speakers will gain a meaningful return on investment for their efforts in preparing a paper, in comparison to less advanced conferences.
