Why should I submit a CFP?

- Speaking at KubeCon is a great way to boost your profile in the cloud native community

- Being a speaker helps to position your company as leading edge in terms of tech

- If you have a great idea or insight, KubeCon is the best place to share your thoughts

How we can help

We know that coming up with a presentation topic can be half the battle, so during this office hours session, we'll talk through your experiences with Kubernetes and help you identify a compelling topic for the KubeCon audience. And don't worry, it doesn't have to be all about Ambassador, either!

The rest of this office hours session will be more generally about helping you to organize your thoughts and pitch, plus identifying the best topic track to target. We'll also break down scoring guidelines and best practices.

And if your CFP is accepted, we are here to help you build your slides and rehearse!
