Submit to speak or reserve your ticket now.

It can be hard to find your chance to shine. If every conference wants experience, then how do you get experience speaking at conferences? That’s why AFP Greater Toronto began the Speakers Discovery Series...

We want to give first-time speakers an opportunity to speak in front of a friendly audience and receive constructive feedback. Our team is currently looking for submissions. As a speaker you will have a chance to be in front of an audience and you will receive thoughtful critique from a seasoned speaking professional (submit here). And as a listener you will be supporting these rising stars and will enjoy an evening of inspiration, education, and professional networking (grab your ticket here).

Theme: Dilemma

As fundraisers we face choices every day; some feel inconsequential, while others can weigh on you and exhaust your mental energy. It can seem like the right decision may never arrive as you struggle to consider every alternative. This edition of the Speaker Discovery Series invites fundraisers to share their story of a dilemma – what was your difficult choice and how did it turn out? What happened when you faced your dilemma? Let’s all share and support each other while exploring the "grey areas." Dilemmas will happen and we don’t need to bear them alone.

No slideshows allowed. Just a story, a voice, and a little bravery. Deadline to submit as a speaker is March 30th and ticket sales will continue until we’re sold out – which is sooner than you might expect.

We hope to see you in May!
