Welcome to the PersoniFest Speaker Portal!

Thank you again for your participation in our upcoming event. We can’t wait to experience the beautiful city of Colorado Springs with the PersoniFam this April! Below you’ll find some important information and key dates to take note of. If you have any questions about speaker requirements or the information below, please email Megan Lopez (mlopez@personifycorp.com).


Important Information

All presentations will need to follow our PersoniFest PowerPoint template, which can be downloaded right here from inside the portal. To ensure consistency and prevent technical difficulties onsite, you will need to upload your presentation (PPT files only, please!) to the speaker portal by Friday, March 20th for review. I will review presentations between March 23rd- March 26th and will notify all speakers of any changes no later than Friday, March 27th.

All presentations will be locked in and considered FINAL on Wednesday, April 1st. All presentations* will be loaded onto laptops in advance of the event and a laptop will be set up for you when you arrive to present your session.

*Some training sessions may be an exception to this rule and will be discussed with individual speakers.

While you’re here, please review and update your speaker profile. Some of this information will appear in the PersoniFest mobile app, but your contact information will NOT be shared.

Questions? Shoot me an email!
