PRESENTER APPLICATION SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Thank you for your interest in applying to be a Presenter with canfitpro! Please read the guidelines below before submitting your online application.
A NOTE TO PREVIOUS CANFITPRO PRESENTERS AND APPLICANTS
We keep applications on file from the previous year, if you would like us to “reactivate” your file for the following year, please indicate when submitting your online application. We are looking for ‘new’ topics, therefore, a brand new application is always best.
1. SESSION SELECTION
Our primary goal at canfitpro is to offer a broad scope of topics related to the fitness industry, whether they are brand new concepts or trusty techniques, and we must offer sessions that will appeal to the greatest number of delegates. There is limited spaces available in each session/category (i.e. mind-body, group fitness, specialty programs, educational concepts, business/management, nutrition, personal training, etc.) and we are looking for the best of the best! Successful presenters are those who can offer something unique, educational and inspiring!
We recommend you be specific on the topic/session you would like to present and avoid vague statements like “I can present on anything!” or “Please check my website”.
2. PRESENTATION STANDARDS
Applications are reviewed for safety, effectiveness, efficiency, educational value, logical content, innovative concepts and adherence to current industry guidelines. The canfitpro Events Team has very strict quality guidelines for applications of all types. For example, the presenter must have strong public speaking abilities, excellent delivery methods, appropriate educational background and thorough knowledge of his/her topic.
3. VIDEO SUBMISSION
A video is the best way to enhance your Presenter Application and show us your skills as a Presenter. canfitpro strongly recommends that if you are either a new presenter to canfitpro or proposing a new concept, that you submit a short, self-produced video up to 5 minutes (professional production not required) to help canfitpro clearly understand your concept and presentation skills. Put your best foot forward and show us what you’ve got!
Here are some suggestions for preparing the video:
• A single angle camera on a tripod is sufficient, you must be in the shot for most of the video.
• Recording yourself in a regular class setting or in a presentation is appropriate. Please send a video of yourself teaching to the relevant audience (i.e. please demonstrate your skills teaching to fitness professionals rather than the general public, if at all possible).
• Always ask your participants for their permission to record the class or presentation and explain what the video will be used for.
4. APPLICATION DEADLINE
Applications for canfitpro Toronto 2020 will be accepted between September 30 to October 30, 2019. Successful applicants are notified approximately six to eight (6-8) months prior to the Toronto event date and approximately two to four (2-4) months prior to regional events.
If you have any further questions, please email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
