Speaker Information + Resources

Hey! I’m so excited to team up with you to pull off an absolutely incredible training.

The Educator Resilience Summit is a 2-day event that will provide educators (teachers, administrators and staff) with tools and actionable strategies for how to promote their own wellness and how to create a school that supports the wellness of staff. Our event has a unique focus on wellness both at the individual level and at the school level. 

On this page, you’ll find all kinds of resources meant to make your life as a speaker as easy as possible and answer any questions you might have. If you run into a question we didn’t answer, email leslie@resilienceimpact.com or ask over in the Facebook group.

How it'll all work

Let’s do a quick rundown of how the whole thing will work.

The event will run from August 3 - 4, 2020 with 5 pre-recorded presentations running each day. These presentations will include 35 - 50 minutes of content, a worksheet that follows along with or complements the presentation, and a live chat. 

While the presentations themselves are pre-recorded, all speakers are asked to attend their presentation time live to interact with attendees in the chatbox. There is no video component, so attendance in pjs is recommended 😉

During the promotion phase, as the summit is running, and for a week after the summit is complete, we’ll also be promoting the Summit All Access Pass. This includes replays of all the sessions for 1 year, a digital workbook and pdfs of the slides. This will provide immense value to our attendees, while making the work of promoting and creating a presentation worthwhile by allowing you to bring in affiliate commissions, if you choose to participate. 

What I'll need from you

So this all sounds great, but what kind of work does it require of you? Let’s chat about it! My goal is to make this all as easy as humanly possible so we can all have a blast while providing great value and growing our businesses.

1. Basic Information

The first thing I’ll need is some very basic information from you so I can finish up our registration page and speakers page.

This information includes:

  • Name
  • Title
  • Bio
  • Square headshot

Once you give me the thumbs up that you’re in, I’ll send you a link where you can upload all this information easily.

2. Presentation Slot Scheduled

The next thing I’ll need is for you to schedule your presentation slot! Click here to see the list of times that are available and to schedule yours. (Slots are first-come first-served so if you have a tight schedule be sure to grab your spot right away)

While your presentation will be pre-recorded, you’ll still be required to be in the chat live during your time slot to answer questions and connect with attendees. During this slot, once your presentation has had time to air, you’ll also be able to jump into the Facebook group for an encore and to answer any great questions that weren’t answered in your presentation. (These Facebook lives will also be added to the Summit All Access Pass.

3. Presentation

Next up is your presentation! This is a 35 - 50 minute pre-recorded presentation that is meant to be more friendly and casual than perfect and structured. We want our attendees to learn something great, while having fun in the process.

Please structure your content in a way that allows attendees to walk away feeling like they've really learned something.

With that being said, you have your choice of the following presentation formats:

  • Slides
  • No slides (just your gorgeous/handsome face)
  • A mixture of the two
  • Interview-style

If you’d like to go with the interview style presentation, schedule a time to do that here. You’ll still be responsible for editing if any is needed, but we’ll work together to come up with questions.

No matter what format you choose, you are free to use your presentation however you’d like in the future.

Your presentation should include great, actionable content. Here’s the suggested format:

  • A quick introduction
  • An overview of your topic
  • Where people go wrong with your topic and tend to overcomplicate it
  • Teaching section
  • Specific action steps (with the goal of simplifying their existing process)
  • Include questions for attendees to answer in the chat box throughout to boost engagement

Presentations are due by July 13, 2020.

Check out the presentation guidelines here. 

4. Worksheet

Along with each presentation will be a worksheet. There are a few reasons behind this:

  • They encourage people to take action
  • It’s an easy way for viewers to take notes
  • We’ll be able to capture the email addresses of people interested in your topic, which you’ll receive after the event is over.

The content of the worksheet should follow along with your presentation and encourage attendees to take action. You are more than welcome to include links and a call-to-action at the end.

Like I said, this process is meant to be as easy as possible so you have a couple options. You can either:

  • Create the worksheet yourself, using your own questions and branding. With this option, you’re free to reuse it in the future however you’d like.
  • Write out your worksheet questions and send it to me to be put into the summit’s worksheet template.
  • Have my team take care of it all.

If you choose to go with option 1, your worksheet will be due along with your presentation on July 13, 2020. If you choose options 2 or 3, your information is due on July 1, 2020 to give my team time to take care of it.

6. Promotion

The power of an online summit comes from a group of experts coming together for a single cause. The joint promotion that happens because of that is a huge benefit to everyone involved.

Because of that, everyone is encouraged to share on social media and to email their lists during the promotion period, starting on July 17, 2020.

You’ll want to share using your affiliate link (which you can set up here) so you can get in on the 50% commission that will come from any Summit All Access Pass sales.

You’ll find swipe copy and graphics in the Resource Vault below.

7. Live Participation

And last comes participation during the week of the event. Since we’ll already have done the work of creating the presentations and extra resources, we’ll be able to sit back and relax for the most part!

All I ask is that you participate in the chat during your presentation slot and interact in the Facebook group throughout the week to help attendees stay excited and engaged.

While you are not required to attend the events of other speakers, it’s highly encouraged! We’ll be able to get some great discussions going about the topics being presented.

Affiliate Details

While summits are great for overall visibility and making new connections, a little extra income never hurts either, right?

That’s exactly why I’ve set up an affiliate program for the Educator Resilience Summit All Access Pass where you’ll receive a commission from all sales from traffic you refer to the event. Payouts will be made by August 21, 2020.

The commission structure is as follows:

  • 50% for participating speakers

The pricing structure will be:

  • $49 at initial registration
  • $79 from July 10-31
  • $119 from August 1-4
  • $149 Post Event Sales 

To make it as easy as possible for you to generate extra income, the Resource Vault includes things like email swipe copy, social media copy, and social share graphics. However, you’re more than welcome to write your own copy and even run your own Facebook ads. 

Just remember to use your affiliate link, which you can create or look up here.

As with all affiliate promotions, be sure to disclose that you’re an affiliate when sharing with your audience.
