Call for Speakers

Our 2019 Call for Speakers is now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted. Our team will be in touch over the next weeks.


Apply to Speak at High Five 2019

Our sixth annual High Five Conference is taking place on March 4th and 5th, 2019 in downtown Raleigh, NC and we want YOU! We’re looking for energized individuals with something unique to share when it comes to the marketing and creative fields. But first, let’s get to know each other a little.

We’ll go first. High Five is all about marketing and creative, as we bring together two audiences that should be speaking but often aren’t. It’s working too — just check out this video. Named one of Forbes Magazine’s Marketing Conferences To Check Out In 2016, High Five 2018 featured 35+ inspiring speakers from across both disciplines while celebrating the talent and vibrancy of the Triangle. Cool, right? We’ve sold out each year and we’re looking forward to another awesome experience in 2019.

So what are we looking for in a speaker? In short: inspiration and actionable insights for our guests. Our audience is diverse and ranges from one-man design shops to C-suite executives at large corporations. Topics that have succeeded in the past include UX design, authentic storytelling, logo design, typography, content marketing, creativity, marketing and creative collaboration, SEO and customer experience.

Now it’s your turn. Please complete the form below if you’d like the chance to be a part of this experience. We’ll review when our Call for Speakers ends on Wednesday, November 7 so be sure to submit early (High Five speaker FOMO is VERY real). We’ll notify you of our decision in mid-to-late- November. If selected, there are some perks too — lots of exposure, complimentary conference passes for breakout speakers. And the best part? Connecting with and becoming a part of the High Five community.

If you have any questions, please reach out to
