Engage! Cleveland says
Y(our) Platform is back again this year! This event is designed for YPs to share YOUR knowledge, YOUR experience and YOUR ideas with OUR community. Y(our) Platform features Cleveland Young Professionals and their hilarious, motivational, and inspiring presentations about their own passions and how other Cleveland YPs can get involved.

If you have something to share, sign up to give a short five minute talk at this year’s event.

Here's how it works: each speaker will have five minutes to tell a story with strong, relevant images, a powerful subject and 20 supporting slides that will rotate every 15 seconds. Be creative, concise and relevant to how YPs can use this information to better our community.

This is not a sales pitch to join a company or a specific non-profit. Rather, these should be feel-good topics that anyone could relate to or learn something new from. Think of your audience - a room full of young professionals, just like you. What would you want to hear about? How do you want someone to feel after your presentation? Excited? Hopeful? Enthusiastic? Inspired?

Some examples include:
- How joining a YP organization made me a better person.
- Why you should wear your CLE pride on your sleeve.
- How a life experience changed my thinking.

Applications will be accepted until midnight on March 15. The application selection is competitive. Winners will be notified via email and then announced shortly after. A bio, your slides, and other materials will be due by Friday, March 31. Presentations will take place during the week of June 20 - June 24, 2016 at a venue in downtown Cleveland. The tentative date is Tuesday, June 21 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. We hope to confirm ASAP.
