What are we looking for ?

For the BA & Beyond conference, we are looking for speakers who can provide information, insights and experiences on topics related to business analysis in the broad sense. Both presentations covering how you are using classic BA techniques and skills to your advantage in today's challenges and presentations on new and related techniques and skills are welcome. We're looking for a broad mix of topics rather than a narrow focus, so don't hesitate to submit your idea and we'll get back to you. After all, BA is about making transformation happen in your organisation and any related topic can be a valuable addition to our event.

We've opted for 90 minute sessions, consisting of 3 20 minute presentations by 3 different speakers on related topics, followed by a 25 minute audience discussion facilitated by the conference organisers (so you don't have to worry about managing this). This will help bring focus in each presentation and ensure a vivid interaction with the audience, so that we can share and learn from each other. This way, we also want to provide a floor to speakers with no or limited public speaking experience.

We have a preference for presentations showcasing real life projects, as these are typically most appreciated by the audience. Theory on BA techniques is welcome, but preferably supported by practical examples.

Key for a succesful presentation is focus. In 20 minutes, you have time to convey one or two key messages with some theory and case examples. So when preparing your presentation, you should be ready to take your time, rehearse, and trim your content until you have the essence.

Presentations will be in English in order to allow for a diverse audience.

We very much look forward to receiving your proposal!
