Why speak at Button?

Get speaking experience in a supportive environment.
Whether you’re developing a speaking practice or just want to share insights on a topic you’re passionate about, you’ll find a welcoming audience eager to hear new ideas and support your success.

Connect with industry peers.
As a speaker, you’ll connect directly with like-minded practitioners, fellow leaders, and your most admired content experts—and make lasting relationships that will enrich your career.

Be part of a diverse, inclusive event.
From our time-tested code of conduct to the Button Equity Scholarship and beyond, we’re always looking for ways to make Button the most inclusive event it can be.

Make a real impact in your community of practice.
Button is the world’s best content design and UX writing conference, focused on the most relevant, of-the-moment topics and trends—which means you’ll be sharing your insights to shape our evolving field.

“You all seriously know how to treat folks. The attention to detail, the thoughtful planning, the clearly considered experience—that stuff matters. I’ve always appreciated that as an attendee, and now as a speaker, I felt very, very supported.”–Lisa Maria Marquis, independent consultant
“The Button team produced this event with exquisite skill, warmth, and heart, and they made it shockingly manageable, both operationally and emotionally, for a first-timer.”–Rachel de Jong, Senior Content Designer at Instacart

Button speakers are fairly compensated.

We understand not only the time and effort that goes into speaking at a conference, but also the deep expertise our speakers bring to the table. We offer all Button speakers (in person and remote) an honorarium and a free ticket to the main conference. For speakers asked to participate in person, we also offer a stipend for travel and accommodations.
