After four years of the DEN we know two things about conference season.
1) People love sessions about Discovery content.
2) Our STARs are always shining.
So, we want to recognize the awesome presentations our STAR Discovery Educators lead at conferences around the globe.
If you are accepted to present at a conference we want to support you in the following ways:
Fame and fortune: we will advertise your session(s) on the blog and website. In some cases where Discovery has a corporate room or booth we’ll even promote your sessions in our conference materials.
Swag: we will send you a DEN Presenter’s polo that you can wear proudly at the conference.
Materials and prizes: we will send DE literature and a few prizes to you to give to your attendees. For example, if you are leading a session about DE Science we can send quickstart guides for everyone.
Sound good? All we need now is for you to let us know. As soon as your session is accepted complete this form and we’ll do our best to support you and make you even more famous than you already are.
