LEADERSHIP Talks - Proposal Form

6th Annual CIGIE Leadership Forum

Leading From Where You Are
Leading People - Leading Change - Driving Excellence

A CIGIE Professional Development Committee - Leadership Development Subcommittee Event
Monday, Oct 21, 2019 at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO), Alexandria, VA

Presenters Wanted!  The CIGIE LDS is looking for leaders from all levels to share their leadership stories, vision, and new ideas with the IG Community with a Leadership Talk.  These talks are intended to be short duration, high impact presentations, just like TED Talks™, and should relate to OPM’s Executive Core Qualifications of Leading Change, Leading People, Results Driven, Business Acumen, and Building Coalitions. Questions to start your thinking include:

  • How have you shifted the way you or your organization identifies and performs its work?
  • How do you mobilize and inspire others to advance the work of your team, your office or the IG Community?
  • What kind of technical expertise or skill sets will be required in the coming decades; what are you doing to help yourself and the organization get there?
  • How do you build coalitions to create meaningful partnerships and conduct cross-cutting work?

If you’d like to give a 15-minute Leadership Talk highlighting your best stories or new ideas about Leading From Where You Are, please complete the form below to submit your proposal.

Proposals are due July 29, 2019.
