Speaker Rider - Tatiana Mac
via @TatianaTMac:
“As I’ve been blessed with speaking engagements, I opted to write myself a speaker rider to ensure my compatibility with the conferences I speak at.

“I published so you can use it too, if you want.”

"As a conference organizer, I continue to be amazed at how many people ask for airfare and hotel accommodations” | LinkedIn
(This is that blowhard post from Brian Sullivan about speakers paying for their own fees.)
“As a conference organizer, I continue to be amazed at how many people ask for airfare and hotel accomodations for a 50-minute talk (newbies and professionals alike).

“Here is some advice from a conference organizer and industry speaker:

“1. Don’t ask us for travel fees unless you are a keynote
“2. Do thank us for being selected as a speaker
“3. Don’t tell us we are cheap because of our travel policy
“4. Do attend as much of the conference, as possible
“5. Don’t change your talk after being accepted
“6. Do be flexible with your talk description
“7. Don’t submit a talk unless you will pay for your travel
“8. Do be willing to work with organizers on your messages
“9. Don’t tell us you have a special message (we all do)
“10. Do understand when organizers lose patience”

“It is a privelege to speak at a conference. You should be humbled and honored by it. Check your ego at the door.

“Never forget, we have other speakers that will pay for the travel, work with organizers, craft their message, share their stories, express their gratitude, and show up.

“I prefer to work with flexible, grateful, humble people, anyway. Just some advise from an industry speaker and conference organizer.

Alex Haagaard on Twitter: "When abled people talk about "accessibility" at events they often mean step-free access and *maybe* captioning / sign language interpretation. What are some lesser-known accommodations that have helped (or would help) make event
“Some accommodations I’ve recently started asking for from conferences / workshops:

“- Lids & straws for coffee & cold beverage cups
“- Food trays
“- Accessibility maps with info about flooring type
“- Full ingredients list for all foods”

(Among some of the other items listed in replies—)
“quiet rooms (preferably with a space to lie down that isnt the floor) lighting that isnt on full blast in every space, if there's music its not turned up so loud people have to yell to have a convo, easy to read maps of the space”

--

“More chairs to sit in. As someone with a bad back and damaged hips, sitting on the floor is impossible, and it really sucks to not be able to stop and sit when I'm tired or in pain. Conventions never have enough chairs or sitting rooms available and it is certainly a turn off”

--

“also, if you make an app, give it the ability to download the whole schedule and access it offline without logging in. There's no point in making a ‘conference app’ that is just a shell on a website and doesn't cache any data.”

--

“Height-adjustable podiums for speakers. I'd like there to actually be low-allergen foods provided. Why does everything have to be packed with the top eight food allergens when these things have snacks?!?!”

--

“Low tables is a big one as a wheelchair user. I recently had to request them for an event because they only planned to have cocktail tables. Also any sort of bars or buffets need to be low enough that I can reach them without assistance. Or at least see the options 😒”

--

“Clearly defined break periods throughout the day long enough to reasonably pause and recharge, as opposed to ‘pack everything into as little time as possible.’

“I get that there has to be a balance to use the time effectively, but Christ Alive, conferences have zero down time.”

--

“Signs posted for navigating spaces around elevators.”

Vapur Element Water Bottle - 24 fl. oz. | REI Co-op
(These reviews don’t look promising, though—)
“Somewhere in the middle of Romania, completely on abused, my bottle developed a pinhole. I looked at the vapor website and find their warranty process condescending and obstructionist. Rather than go through the hassle of sending it in on my own dime and waiting for their pronouncement, I plan to take it into my local REI (where I bought it when I get around to it.

“Be very careful about using it. Its light weight and foldability are great but developing a failure after only a month of use is unacceptable. Also don’t neglect to tighten the cap carefully, or it will pour down your shirt.”

The costs of public speaking - Part of a Whole
“On average, it costs me between $150 and $500 to speak at conference, in actual expenses. Plus $3,000 to $4,500 of my time to prepare the presentation.

“So it costs me quite a bit of money to do public speaking. And it has an impact on my family. This can’t be quantified in terms of dollar cost. But I keep doing it because I believe my message is important and I want to share my knowledge. And I keep learning new things when I present and mingle with other people that present at and attend conferences.”

(On paying conference speakers—or at least covering their travel expenses:)
“Some things need to be said. I deeply love community/non-profit events, local groups and meet-ups — all run on incredible efforts of humble, kind people working hard to bring people together. These are incredible people doing incredible work. This message isn’t for them.

“At the same time, I’m very sad to see a huge number of commercial events (with ticket prices beyond $450) that expect speakers to speak for free and don’t cover flights and accommodation. That’s a toxic, broken culture with a fundamental lack of respect for time, effort and work.

“Yes, venues are expensive, and yes, so is catering, and yes, speaking budget are limited. But before spending thousands on food and roll-ups and notebooks and pins, allocate decent budgets for coaching and helping speakers, especially new speakers in the industry.

“Setting up a conference is a wonderful thought, but you need a financial plan of what it costs and how much you can spend. It’s not acceptable to push the costs over to speakers, and it’s not OK to expect them to cover their flights for ‘exposure’.

“On a personal note, I’ve been speaking a lot over all these years (Vitaly), yet I rarely get any consultancy projects from ‘exposure’ on stage, and more often than not the time away from family and company costs much more than a honorarium provided. You decide what’s OK for you.

“It’s remarkable how every now and again organizers take pride in providing you with a free Platinum Pass that grants access to all the talks and tracks (which apparently costs $2500) yet unwilling to cover more than 1 night accommodation or cover flights.

“Dear speakers, it’s not OK not to be paid at commercial events. Don’t submit proposals to conferences with a high ticket price that wouldn’t cover your expenses. Come up with a fair honorarium for your time, and if possible make exceptions for non-profits and community events.

“Dear organizers, respect your speakers. No fancy bells and whistles required; no fancy speaker dinners or speaker gifts. But always offer to pay speakers, even if it isn’t much, and always cover their expenses first. Help new speakers grow. Their time, work and efforts matter. ❤️”

Conferences, Speakers: Please Caption Your Videos | Adrian Roselli
(This is a pretty good advocacy post for captioning conference videos—)
“As a speaker it may seem odd to pay for captions for your own talk, particularly if you were not compensated to speak. By providing captions you are not only setting yourself apart, you are also setting the tone for what conference organizers should provide. In addition, you may enjoy some unexpected SEO benefit for your talk since the captions can be searched and indexed.”

(48) How Conference Speakers Get Compensated | LinkedIn
“If I go to all of the events I’m invited to, my business would collapse. I’m not the only source of revenue for the business, but aside from the revenue I directly bring in, there are also a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ things I have to do to help keep things going while Leïla Contraire, the president of the company, does a lot of the heavy lifting. I can’t attend every event I’m invited to. Rachel Nabors, on a recent podcast where she discussed how speaking can help or hurt your business, stated that she loses on average $3,000 for every conference she attends. I find that’s actually on the low side if you count all the prep time for a great talk and how many days I’ll be away (my travel’s particularly painful as I live in a medieval port town on the west coast of France with an airport the size of postage stamp offering flights to pretty much nowhere).”

Do I need to write a brand new talk every time? - Notist
"Repeating a talk is a good thing. You will become more confident in your delivery - the third audience to see that talk is likely to see a far more polished version than the first! As a presenter it will help you to learn about different audiences too - there can be a big difference in the way that audiences in different cities, never mind different countries react. I enjoy the process of refining a talk over time, adding a better explanation for something that comes up in Q&A or on Twitter later, or reworking a section to add some new information."

Why You Want a Code of Conduct & How We Made One | Incisive.nu
"When I mentioned online that I was defining a code of conduct for SRCCON, several people spoke up to ask why we couldn’t just say something like 'be excellent to each other.' That’s what we’re after, right? And we are. But as the Ada Initiative suggests, a code of conduct needs to specify behaviors that are a problem as well as noting general principles, or it will fail as a formal statement of community norms. 'Be professional' doesn’t cut it, because people behave in harassing ways all the time in obviously professional situations. 'Be good to each other' might be the core principle, but unless you dig into the uncomfortable details, any breach of the code is going to come back to entirely subjective, situational judgment—which is what a code is supposed to prevent."

Troy Hunt: 10 ways for a conference to upset their speakers
"There's a bunch of things that can go wrong here and one is the mic setup. Anything short of a lapel mic is going to make life hard, for example a fixed lectern mic. One of the most valuable speaker training events I attended talked a lot about "stage presence"; how you move, where you position yourself, when you return to the same spot - all of these things matter and accomplished speakers plan this. That goes out the window as soon as you're tied to a single spot courtesy of a fixed mic. (Incidentally, I referred to the resultant lack of movement as "The statue" in my blog post last year about speaker anti-patterns.)"

1. Specific descriptions of common but unacceptable behavior (sexist jokes, etc.)
2. Reporting instructions with contact information
3. Information about how it may be enforced
4. A clear demarcation between unacceptable behaviour (which may be reported per the reporting instructions and may have severe consequences for the perpetrator) and community guidelines such as general disagreement resolution."
