A keynote speaker is make or break—an inspiring speaker can really set the tone for a conference or event, and their words can linger in attendees’ minds for weeks afterward. We can all think of a time that we nearly dozed off during a long and rambling speech or a speaker that got a 5-minute standing ovation. If you’re looking for a conference full of the latter, GovLoop and NextGen have the perfect opportunity for you.
The 2019 NextGen Government Training Summit features a smorgasbord of exciting speakers who will be speaking across a range of formats, from keynotes to breakout sessions to workshops. Speaker profiles and sessions can be viewed on the official NextGen website, and be sure to check back often, as new speakers will be added as they are confirmed.
If you attended in years past, you can see if any of your favorites will be returning, and if you’re new to NextGen, checking out the speakers and their topics can give you an idea of the great content that will be available for attendees. Take a look at who will be speaking when, circle can’t-miss sessions on your calendar, and be sure to loop in friends or coworkers if you spot a speaker you think they need to hear.
The early bird window is still open, so register soon to get a great deal on this action-packed conference, and be ready to hear some truly incredible speakers. Check out three of them below to see what you have to look forward to!
