Due to the concerns about privacy and
spam, we no longer provide listings of contact
information for our speakers and attendees.
That said -- we do want
to facilitate ongoing networking and one
often finds that after they get back home,
they have a question for a speaker, or want
to follow up on a conversation with an attendee.
So, we have developed a simple contact referral
process. Use the appropriate link below
and a volunteer from the Network will forward
your contact information to the individual
you would like to contact. In this way,
we are not releasing contact information
without the contactee's permission.
Click on an appropriate link below to
send an e-mail to our contact volunteer.
Please include contact information, contact
means preference, a preferred time to contact
if phone is preferred, and a bit about the
nature of your inquiry.
Beginning with our first Forum, we have selected every speaker based on our understanding of the strong alignment between their efforts and the fundamental philosophy of our efforts. This applies to our Pre-Conference, Post-Conference, and Weekend Conference sessions. Toward this end, it is not uncommon for us to engage speakers several years in advance of their appearance. On many occasions, speakers have been referred to us by past Forum attendees. Less often, we are contacted by representatives of speakers who are seeking to find them engagements. We have never accepted such an offer, as the speakers they represent have not yet been well aligned with a theory of management presented in The New Economics of W. Edwards Deming. In addition, we value speakers who see their efforts as part of a greater framework of ideas for how to advance the abilities of individuals to think together, learn together, and work together. By contrast, we are not interested in speakers who see their efforts as "the" solution. Another criterion in our speaker selection is the willingness to appear in a pro bono capacity. That is, without fee.
If you represent a speaker
who you believe has a solid foundation in our fundamental philosophy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include details on why you believe your speaker candidate meets the selection criterion listed above.
