Inviting a Speaker

The Kellogg Corporate Engagement (CE) team offers resources and best practices for speaker and sponsor engagement. We provide industry connection and strategic support to elevate the Kellogg brand.

The conference speaker co-chair works closely with a member of Kellogg’s Corporate Engagement team on their speaker solicitation plan and strategy. The speaker co-chair is responsible for leading the speaker process from speaker identification to day-of event execution. The Corporate Engagement team provides resources and support for all stages of the speaker process including assistance in candidate identification and vetting, content review, on-campus/virtual hosting support, post-event thank you’s, and stewardship across all university channels for the executive.

Kellogg student conferences provide an opportunity for student leaders to work with and engage esteemed executives through the speaker invitation and preparation process to deliver captivating content, enhancing the conference experience. Once speakers are confirmed, the speaker co-chair role serves as the main point of contact for the speaker, ensuring that the speaker needs are met throughout the process.

Additional information including templates, timelines, and trackers will be shared with co-chairs upon conference approval.
