Speaker Selection


DallasHR does not offer a fee or pay expenses for speakers. However, the size and decision-making authority of our audience provides an outstanding opportunity for speakers to increase their visibility and establish valuable contacts with a targeted HR audience.

Presentation proposals are reviewed and selected by a committee of volunteers and DallasHR staff based on the following criteria (not inclusive):

  • Speaker Proposal Form
  • Overall quality of content
  • Well-defined focus
  • Practical applications of material
  • Relatedness to the HR profession
  • Presenter’s professional speaking skills
If your proposal is selected, you will be contacted to make arrangements to add your presentation to the Education Event calendar. If your proposal is not selected for immediate addition to calendar, it will be kept on file for possible future consideration.
