You?

Future Speaker

Hey, it’s Joe Hage. If you’re on this page, you’re thinking about:
speaking at a 10x Medical Device event; or,
recommending a speaker.

Thanks! And, for full transparency, let me tell you how we select speakers.

We look for 10x Medical Device speakers who:

  • Are highly engaging (not boring, monotone, hard to follow, or hard to understand due to language).
  • Don’t cover obvious or superficial things guests could have learned by reading a short blog post.
  • Avoid self- and company promotion, unless they/their product or service is instrumental to the presentation.
  • Could be interesting and relevant to at least 50-75% of the audience.
  • Will stay with us for at least a day (not arrive, speak, and leave; because guests want to meet you!).

A slight preference is given to those who meet the above criteria, and who:
– Are well-known to industry; such as a CEO from a major medical device manufacturer.
– Are sponsoring the event in some manner.

Will I, as a speaker, have to pay anything?

We waive registration for speakers from industry, specifically medical device manufacturing employees.

We do not waive registration for speakers who serve the medical device industry since our audience is their customer base. We believe your chance to shine before your target market is a pretty great thing. Your registration also helps us defray the costs of your video (see below).

Note: It is exceptionally rare for us to pay an honorarium or cover your travel expenses. Still, these can be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Each speaker gets a video for their use however they see fit

For sharing your time and talent with our audiences, you will receive:

  • Free: A professionally recorded video – with good lighting and audio – professionally edited (switching between you and your slides).
  • Free: Your talk may be featured for the Medical Devices Group (350,000+ members) and elsewhere.
  • Free: Your video will likely find a permanent home on our 10x blog.
  • At cost: A video transcription and your video captioned. ($10 per audio minute, around $250 for most talks. I recommend these.)
  • At cost: Marketing support including “shareable snippets” (3-minute video excepts, animated) of your talk. Contact Joe for details.

There you go. If you meet the criteria, please complete this short application. Or email me for more information.

In any case, if you got this far, you see the potential in the event and I hope you’ll join us as speaker, sponsor, or guest.

Thank you! 😀
