Presenters Wanted

Call for fresh faces for FIA Conference plenary session

Following the success of this inaugural session at the 2017 FIA Conference, FIA is bringing back ‘Myth Smashers!’ and we’re on the hunt for fundraisers who have never spoken to a great big audience before, wanting to share their story.

Myth Smashers is a fast paced, dynamic session where up-and-coming stars present for six minutes only on the biggest myth they heard when they started in fundraising and how that has proved to be untrue - therefore ‘smashing the myth’

You must inspire the audience with your insights and the myth you’ll bust. Once everyone has presented we’ll be asking for the audience to vote on the best myth smashed. The winner will receive a free registration to the 2019 FIA Conference in Melbourne. The winner will also be asked to write up the case study to be published on the SOFII website.

Those selected for this session will be mentored by one of our local fundraising experts.


Please submit your idea in writing (no more than 100 words) to the 2018 Conference Program Committee via by Monday 20 November.

We would also like to hear what public speaking experience you have had in smaller sessions which will positively support your application. The difference here is that this will be a plenary session, so it is your first chance on the biggest stage of all at the FIA Conference. 

We look forward to hearing your ideas!
