CEL's Ask the Experts Event is an intentional collision of CEL alumni in an effort to share wisdom, insights & experiences.

By being a member of the CEL Alumni Association, you are one of over 1,300 Buffalo leaders passionate about improving the WNY community & economy.  Take advantage of this day to share & learn about what fellow entrepreneurs deem relevant and important in their world. 

In order to make this event work, we need "Experts" to share about what they love.  Are you an expert in your industry?  Did you learn something the hard way and want to ensure someone else doesn't take that route?   Are you passionate about something and want to shout it from the rooftops?   Can you do it in less than 20 minutes and in a way that does NOT include selling your business or service? 

If so, throw your hat in the ring to be a speaker

All "expert" topics must be submitted no later than Friday March 30th.  A committee will review all submissions and those selected to present will be notified by mid-April.  All selected speakers will need to submit final versions of their presentation no later than one week prior to the event.  Speakers are prohibited from selling their product or service during their presentation.

How it works: The Ask the Experts Portion of the day will feature 19 speakers that have the opportunity to share about a topic of their choice for 20 minutes each.  Attendees will choose a presentation from 1 of 4 breakout rooms, with the opportunity to switch rooms between sessions.

Stick around for a CEL Recruitment Happy Hour directly following the presentations.  Invite a prospective candidate to join you for all or part of the day to let them experience the CEL network.
