  9. 9. Speaker Guidelines Dont be a schmuck - (as we call them) Be professional and respectful, our attendees and speakers are as equally talented and inspiring as you are. By refraining from the usual shtick and respecting others at the event everyone can learn and grow together. Dont be an Egotist - We as human beings, are all equal. While some may be considered experts in our field, no one is more of an expert than anyone else. Speakers are there to inspire, not demean. Remember that while you are not on the stage, you are an attendee and are expected to derive inspiration from others just like everyone else. No Sales Pitches - While some of our topics are presentations of new products, we ask that you do not go with the sole purpose of gathering leads or convincing attendees that they must use your product or services. Attendees and speakers alike are all here to be inspired and to grow as individuals, not to buy. Participate - While we understand that we all have busy schedules, the Emerging Media Conference™ is a chance to stop and smell the roses of inspiration. We expect everyone to attend all the aspect the event has to offer and all grow as a result. Please do not arrive for your talk and simply leave after. Spend some time each day listening, learning, and engaging. Inspire - Remember you are here to inspire others with your passion for what you do. Dont educate or expect attendees to walk away with actionable items, but rather give them something to think about. End your topic with a question that helps them come
