The Society of Emotional Intelligence (SoEI) seeks innovated session proposals that not only speak to the technical issues, but also provide context. Speakers should offer real-world examples, “war stories”, case studies, successes and failures, examples of actual tools and working papers and insights on emerging issues.

Sessions should be designed to encourage interactive audience participation by including small group discussions, exercises and other activities to interject energy and promote dialogue. SoEI is not looking for lectures, but rather innovative and exciting sessions. Proposal topics range from presenting evidence-based approaches to sharing unique viewpoints

SoEI expects learning objectives for proposed sessions to reflect actions and abilities the attendees can employ from participating in the session. The learning objectives must be clear and measurable.

The proposals will be evaluated in whole or in part on the following criteria:

  • Subject matter is cutting-edge or presents new ideas, presented in a creative and engaging way
  • Topic is timely for the industry today and will attract attendees
  • Learning objectives are well-defined
  • Attendees will able to relate to the content and apply what they’ve learned in their roles
  • Context of the issues including real-world case studies, examples, and stories
  • Potential for audience interactive participation
  • Speaker presentation skills and experience
  • Speaker is knowledgeable, engaging and experienced on the topic submitted
  • Education focus devoid of overt and covert commercialism
  • Priority consideration will be given to those that HAVE NOT spoken at the conference in the last three (3) years
