For this year’s Gen Blue, we are seeking speakers to participate in CB Inspires, a new powerful series of short talks intended to shine a light on positivity, embrace new ways of thinking and harness our collective energy.
Do you have an idea, a skill, passion or an experience you would like to share? Is it something that would motivate, educate, uplift, dazzle or generate goodwill? Then we want to hear from you!
CB Inspires will be presented live and on stage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City during Gen Blue on Oct. 4-7, 2021. All talks will be recorded and made available online after the event.
Submission and Selection Process
For initial consideration, you must be registered to attend Gen Blue® in person prior to submission of this form and complete the details below and submit by July 23, 2021.
After the submission deadline, all entries will be reviewed internally and 10-12 will be selected to move on to the next step at the beginning of August. If your submission is selected for the second round, you will be contacted and asked to provide a short 1-2-minute video introducing you and your topic.
Are there any restrictions on topics or content that can be shared?
CB Inspires content should be aligned with the brand’s core values, including from a perspective of diversity and inclusion. Speakers should avoid any negative content including inflammatory, exclusionary or politically charged language. Speakers should also know they cannot promote any individual product, offering or other commercial endeavor.
I am not planning to attend this year’s event in person, but I have something worth sharing. Can I still submit for consideration?
All CB Inspires talks will be presented live on stage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City during Gen Blue 2021. Only individuals who are registered to attend in person will be considered as speakers for CB Inspires.
Can I use slides or props during my talk?
Yes, but they are not required. The final selected speakers will work directly with the Gen Blue production team in preparation for the event. Speakers will receive guidance, rehearsals and assistance in the development of any slides, props or other materials needed for the talk. All slides and/or a summary of the content are subject to review by the brand prior to the talk.
If I am selected as a speaker for CB Inspires, what costs, if any, are covered?

Final speakers selected will receive a refund for their event registration, but no travel, hotel or incidental expenses will be covered.
