ICFC Program Guidelines for Speakers
You are invited to submit a proposal to present a program to the International Coach Federation - Chicago (ICFC), a chartered chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF).
The International Coach Federation - Chicagois an organization of more than 1000 coaches (of which 398 are ICF members) whose practices include personal life coaching, business and executive coaching, and leadership development. About half the members are full-time independent coaches, while the balance are part-time independent or full-time internal corporate coaches. While many of the members have been coaching for less than five years, there are many who have been professional coaches for as long as 15-20 years. Membership in the ICF automatically provides eligibility in the Chicago Chapter.
The ICFC meets monthly (except August) on the second Monday of the month. The meetings typically begin at 6:00 p.m. with the first 30 minutes for socializing, a light meal and chapter announcements. The guest speaker / presentations begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:00 p.m.
At least one-half hour of experiential exercises is usually a good idea, but not required. Include plenty of time for questions & answers; our group generally enjoys interaction. If you have something to market / sell please be discreet and brief and remember that the more value the group receives from your presentation the more likely they are to seek your services.
Special Events of half day, full day, and weekend workshops are possible, and proposals are invited for those events as well. We occasionally have special presentations on evenings other than Monday. These Special Events are usually for speakers with a national reputation and a substantial email list of their own. Once your proposal has been accepted we will expect you to commit to a presentation date three to twelve months in advance.
Topics Should Relate To:
The Chapter recognizes several target audiences and your presentation can be aimed at one or more of the following groups:
ICFC Will Provide:
Up to three microphones, an overhead projector and screen, and flip chart(s) if requested. We will also provide for videotape presentation if needed. Presenters using computer driven presentations are asked to bring their own projection device. We encourage presenters to provide handouts of salient points for all attendees.
ICFC Request for Proposal
Please include the following in your proposal:
It is strongly recommended if an audio or videotape is available of you doing this or another presentation, please include it.
If you have published a book, you may want to send a copy to the Program Chair. Your books can be sold at the back of the room at our meeting/program.
Submit your RFP to the current Program Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on where we are in the scheduling process it might be a while before we make a decision on your proposal. We try to schedule a whole year at one time. We request your patience.
Thank you for offering your services to the ICFC!
