Paris Talks isn’t like any other typical university or company conference.

The Paris Talks attendees and curation team have high expectations of the speakers; together with our partners, we work with speakers well before the ideas festival in shaping their presentations so that they can be successful and fit the Paris Talks stage.

Here’s an opportunity to give THE TALK of your life.

we accept nominations at least 3 months before the upcoming edition (End December 2022 for the March 2023 edition). By doing this, we’ll be able to research the speakers carefully and make the best decision on our speaker roster.
Easy. Just go to our speaker application (and) recommendation form, and fill in as much information as you can. This form will go directly to our curation team.
Sure, please do! The only thing you’ll need to do is to let our curation team how you’ve heard about this person, and why you think they should speak at Paris Talks.
Sponsoring Paris Talks will surely give you so many benefits, but a guaranteed speaking slot will have to be negotiated with our sales and curation team. 
At Paris Talks, every attendee hears every presentation. Depending on the format of the festival, we’d, at times have breakout session, tracks and keynotes.
Paris Talks does not pay its speakers. We do, however, cover travel costs and provide excellent hotel accommodation — as well as a covetable pass to two days. This coverage is only for speakers coming from abroad. The offered benefits to speakers include pre-festival coaching and training, special events for networking (before and after the talks), a gift bag, an opportunity to sell/promote their products (strict rules apply. More on this from the curation team), a web archive of the full conference and a beautifully produced, broadcast-quality video. We want to commit ourselves to create a beneficial experience on all sides.

Paris Talks invites speakers from a variety of fields and disciplines, including academia, business, government, media, and more. We welcome applications from individuals with innovative ideas, unique perspectives, and valuable expertise to share.

Paris Talks looks for speakers who can offer unique and valuable insights, present innovative ideas or research, and engage and inspire the audience. We also consider the relevance of the topic to the conference theme and the speaker’s expertise and experience.

If you (or the person you’ve nominated) are selected to speak at Paris Talks, you will be notified by email. Please make sure to provide a valid email address on your application or nomination form.
