Want to join the line up for the 2017 Disruptive Innovation Festival?

Apply for a Session

Sessions are your opportunity to give a talk or host a discussion about a topic you're passionate about. The DIF provides the platform, all you need is an idea and an internet connection!

Take a look at the DIF 2017 Speaker Guide for more information. 

Who can apply?

The DIF encourages individuals, organisations, entrepreneurs, designers and educators to share their stories and innovations. Whether in a team or going solo, you should be prepared to design, promote and facilitate your session.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 12th October 2017, but the sooner you get your application in and your session listed on the schedule, the more time there will be to start building your audience.

How do I start?

Apply to speak by creating a My DIF account and follow the link to the speaker application. You'll get the chance to explain what your session idea is and the format you'd like to deliver it in. 

We'll get in touch within seven days to let you know if you've got through to the next stage. If you have any questions about your application, please contact us at thinkdif@ellenmacarthurfoundation.org.
