Speaker Information + Resources
We’re so excited to team up with you to pull off something that’s going to be absolutely incredible.
The Engaging Your Teen Students virtual summit is a 3-day event that will help high school teachers engage their anxious, unmotivated and overwhelmed students.
On this page, you’ll find all kinds of resources meant to make your life as a speaker as easy as possible and answer any questions you might have. If you run into a question we didn’t answer, please email us at email@example.com or ask over in the Facebook group.
As a speaker, you’ll also get free access to the VIP All Access Pass!
For this summit, you will participate in one of the following ways:
*If you are ONLY an affiliate or you are ONLY contributing a bonus item to the VIP Pass (or both of these), you do not need to fill out a Speaker Agreement.
*If you are contributing to this summit as a Speaker who does a pre-recording or as a Spotlight Speaker, please fill out the Speaker Agreement.

How It'll All Work
Let’s do a quick rundown of how the whole thing will work.
The event will run from April 13-15 with 6-7 pre-recorded presentations running each day. These presentations will include 20 minutes of content (with up to a 3-minute pitch at the end).
While the presentations themselves are pre-recorded, all speakers are asked to attend their presentation time live to interact with attendees in the chatbox and plan to engage during the presentation and following (approx. 1 hour). There is no video component, so attendance in pjs is encouraged
Along with the live presentations, there will be a Facebook group for attendees to hang out in, hold each other accountable, and ask all of us additional questions. If attendees have good questions while your presentation is going on, you’ll be able to go live in the Facebook group for a bit of an encore to answer those questions, connect with the attendees, and provide even more value.
The additional Facebook live is not required. Those who have done this in the past say they had a great time, and the attendees loved it!
We will also have 1 minute engaging activities in between presentations so teachers can have even more amazing tools in their toolbox for student engagement at the end of this summit.
Day 1 – 1 minute mindfulness practices
Day 2 – 1 minute Tik Toks
Day 3 – 1 minutes resiliency builders
Leading up to the summit, we’ll have two weeks of promotion. You’ll be provided with
- email swipe copy
- social media swipe copy
- social media graphics to make it all easy!
We’ll even have a suggested posting/sending schedule for you to make promo easy to outsource to a VA.
During the promotion phase, as the summit is running, and for a week after the summit is complete, we’ll also be promoting the VIP Pass. This includes an All-Access Pass for the replays, and some (or all) of following items (depending on what our speakers end up providing):
This will provide immense value to our attendees, while making the work of promoting and creating a presentation worthwhile by allowing you to bring in affiliate commissions. Yay!
Join Us On Clubhouse
We will be meeting in a CLUBHOUSE room regularly. Details will follow. Let us know if you need an invite! Also, make sure you follow EACH speaker on Clubhouse who is participating in this summit. The Speaker List can be found HERE.
What We'll Need From You
So this all sounds great, but what kind of work does it require of you? Let’s chat about it! Our goal is to make this all as easy as humanly possible so we can all have a blast while providing great value and growing our businesses.
This information includes things like:
- Bio – please keep it under 100 words
- Square headshot in hi-res
2. CONFIRM PRESENTATION TIME
The next thing we’ll need is for you to confirm that your presentation time slot works for you! Click here to see the time you are scheduled (we’ll also email this to you). (If you cannot be available during the time you are slotted to chat with your viewers (audio only), please let us know).
Although your presentation will be pre-recorded, we’re asking all speakers to be available to chat live during your time slot to answer questions and connect with attendees. During this slot, once your presentation has had time to air, you’ll also be able to jump into the Facebook group for an encore and to answer any great questions that weren’t answered in your presentation.
Next up is your presentation! This is a 20 minute pre-recorded presentation that is meant to be more friendly and casual than perfect and structured. We want our attendees to learn something great, while having fun in the process.
Please structure your content in a way that allows attendees to walk away feeling like they’ve really learned something, rather than a webinar format where they feel like they’re missing something that they need to buy from you asap.
With that being said, you have your choice of the following presentation formats:
- No slides (just your gorgeous/handsome face)
- A mixture of the two
- Interview-style (recorded by us)
If you’d like to go with the interview style presentation, schedule a time with Charle to do that here. We’ll work together to come up with questions so don’t stress about this! There is a brief form to fill in so we’ll know what to cover.
No matter what format you choose, you are free to use your presentation however you’d like in the future.
Your presentation should include great, actionable content. Here’s the suggested format:
- A quick introduction
- An overview of your topic
- Where people go wrong with your topic and tend to overcomplicate it
- Teaching section
- Specific action steps (with the goal of simplifying their existing process)
- Up to a 3-minute pitch
- Include questions for attendees to answer in the chat box throughout to boost engagement
Presentations are due by March 23.

4. VIP Pass CONTRIBUTION
The VIP Pass will be a huge addition to the presentations we’re running. To make it even more valuable, we’ll ask each of you to provide one resource to add. This includes things like:
- A chapter of your book
- Courses (big or small)
- 1-month memberships
- Top 10 List
Note: We expect this to convert well, so we do not recommend contributing any 1:1 offers.
It’s totally up to you to decide whether you’d like to create something new or provide something you already have. While this isn’t required, it’s highly encouraged that you participate.
Please let us know if you will be contributing to our VIP Pass by March 9. The item you choose to contribute is due by March 16. You’ll receive a questionnaire to fill out closer to that time to make passing the information to us nice and simple.
The power of an online summit comes from a group of experts coming together for a single cause. The joint promotion that happens because of that is a huge benefit to everyone involved.
Because of that, everyone is encouraged to share on social media and to email their lists during the promotion period, starting on March 30.
You’ll want to share using your affiliate link (which you can set up here) so you can get in on the 40% commission that will come from any VIP Pass sales (for the first 15 VIP Pass purchases, and then 50% thereafter).
You’ll find swipe copy and graphics in the Resource Vault (coming soon).
6. LIVE PARTICIPATION
And last comes participation during the week of the event. Since we’ll already have done the work of creating the presentations and extra resources, we’ll be able to sit back and relax for the most part!
All we ask is that you participate in the chat during your presentation slot and interact in the Facebook group throughout the week to help attendees stay excited and engaged.
While you are not required to attend the events of other speakers, it’s highly encouraged! We’ll be able to get some great discussions going about the topics being presented.
We are also excited to announce that we will be active on Clubhouse! Join us! If you need an invite, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
While summits are great for overall visibility and making new connections, a little extra income never hurts either, right?
That’s exactly why we’ve set up an affiliate program for the VIP Pass where you’ll receive a commission from all sales from traffic you refer to the event. Payouts will be made by April 30.
The commission structure is as follows:
- 40% for all speakers for the first 15 VIP Pass purchases through your affiliate link
- 50% for all VIP pass purchases through your affiliate link thereafter
The pricing structure will be:
- $30 for 15 minutes after initial registration
- $67 from March 23 – April 12
- $97 from April 13-15
*for individual VIP Pass purchases.
To make it as easy as possible for you to generate extra income, the Resource Vault includes things like email swipe copy, social media copy, and social share graphics. However, you’re more than welcome to write your own copy and even run your own Facebook ads.
Just remember to use your affiliate link, which you can create or look up here.
As with all affiliate promotions, be sure to disclose that you’re an affiliate when sharing with your audience.
Now for those resources we promised to make your life as easy as possible.
