The 2019 QRRRWN annual conference is being held in Goondiwindi from 12th - 14th September 2019.

The conference committee is keen to hear from speakers and workshop presenters who are interested in presenting at the conference around the theme:

Thriving Women - Thriving Regions

We are looking for three types of speakers:

1.    Keynote speakers - Keynote speeches are delivered to main stage plenary sessions or at breakfast or dinner functions by high profile speakers and will be allocated approximately 40 minutes although this may vary.  Keynote speakers often offer to also be workshop presenters.

2.    Workshop presenters – sessions of breakout workshops will be approximately 60 minutes duration where delegates choose between a number of options across business and personal development. These workshops are sometimes repeated to allow maximum access by delegates. They can cover topics such as business planning, digital marketing, grant writing, agriculture or politics or can be hands on practical activities such as cheese making, drawing or public speaking. A mix of serious and more light-hearted workshops will be selected from a range of experienced and also less-experienced presenters.

3.    Youth Program - speakers and workshop presenters for the youth program will be expected to tailor their material to young women 15-20 years of age and be appropriate for the audience.  Workshop duration is to be confirmed but is expected to be 40-60 minutes in length.

4.    Spotlight speakers – are short (10 minutes) main stage plenary sessions that introduce local inspirational women or projects. They can be individual or part of a panel and they are usually conversational in style with the MC asking questions. These positions are usually offered to local delegates who would most likely be attending the conference. There is no travel, accommodation or registration budgeted for spotlight speakers.

Please complete your details below to enable the committee to put together another amazing conference program. Please note that your submission of information and image will be taken as permission for them to be used for conference promotion and in publications.
