Call for Big Boulder 2016 Speakers

Big Boulder 2016 is just around the corner and we can’t wait to welcome you to Boulder in a few months. The board has been working hard to create some amazing content for this year’s conference on June 23rd and 24th. Along with our traditional set of compelling speakers/topics, we’re also looking for BBI members to contribute. As such, we’re opening a call for speakers. 


Every year, the BBI board works to determine what are the most relevant topics in the industry. After much deliberation, the themes for this year’s event are:

  1. The Rise of Social Messaging
  2. The Evolution of Visual Social Media 
  3. Social Data AND (Brands, Politics, Music, Sports)
  4. The Rise of Bots
  5. The Ethical Use of Social Data

Do you have something important to share with the others in the industry? Are you passionate about one (or more) of the themes list above? Well, here’s your chance. We’re using Pecha Kucha format to give you the opportunity to share it with the member community. So, craft up your best ideas in and send ’em in! If your Pecha Kucha is selected, you get a free ticket to the conference!

How to Submit

We invite provocative Pecha Kucha submissions related to our themes. Please send your 20-slide Pecha Kucha-compliant slide deck to by Friday, May 27, 2016. No product mentions or sales pitches please!

An expert panel of cast members from HBO’s hit series Silicon Valley will review the proposals (or we will have a BBI subcommittee). Either way, the competition for these spots will be cutthroat. Please carefully study the art and science of Pecha Kucha and make sure you are a registered and paid BBI member before making a submission.
