On November 5, 2016, Hamilton HIVE will host HIVEX, our annual young professionals’ conference. The HIVEX conference is an exciting one-day event that aims to empower and advance emerging leaders and young professionals (aged 18 – 39). It will feature a keynote speaker, interactive workshops, and breakout sessions to enhance community involvement and cultivate the necessary skills relevant to both students and professionals for personal and career success.
The theme this year is Engage with a collective focus on cultivating engagement within the Hamilton community and addressing issues that affect all young professionals today across various industries. Our goal is to bring 300+ emerging and established leaders, working professionals, post-secondary students, recent grads, entrepreneurs, artists, freelancers and more to The Cotton Factory for a full day of thought-provoking speakers and skill-building workshops.
We are putting out a Request for Workshops/Speaker Proposals for the HIVEX conference. Workshops should be interactive and can be skills-based, research-based, conversational/analytical, artistic and experimental. Presenting at HIVEX gives you the opportunity to engage and connect with Hamilton’s next generation of young leaders.
If you’ve got a great idea for a HIVEX workshop, download the proposal submission form here.
Note the deadline for submissions: Monday, May 9, 2016 by 11:59 p.m.
