TraumaWise Summits - 2024 

Call For Speakers 

Thank you for your interest in speaking at

The TraumaWise Summit! 

The virtual summit for people who want to increase their trauma wisdom, compassion, and capacity for activating sustainable healing and systems change in their spaces and places. 

The 2024 TraumaWise Summit series will feature multiple editions to meet the specific needs of social sectors.  We are looking for people with lived-experience to bring their trauma wisdom and skills to the TraumaWise Community!

On this page, you’ll find all of the info you need to apply and answer any questions you have. If you run into a question I didn’t answer, email me at:

How the Summits Will Work

The TraumaWise Summit a will have four editions for 2024 (please see the following schedule).  Presentations will include 18-24 minutes of content (with up to a 3-minute freebie pitch).

Along with the presentations, there will be a Facebook group for attendees to have fun in, hold each other accountable, and ask questions. If attendees have good questions while your presentation is going on, you’re welcome 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.

Leading up to the summit, we’ll have 3-4 weeks of promotion. You’ll be provided with email swipe copy, social media swipe copy, and social media graphics to make it all easy! I'll even have a suggested posting/sending schedule for you to make promo easy to outsource to a Virtual Assistant.

During the promotion phase, as the summit is running, and for a week after the summit is complete, we’ll also be promoting the TraumaWise ToolKit. This includes an all-access pass for the replays, early access to all presentations, and a bundle of resources from our sponsors and speakers. 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 and grow your email list. Yay!

All speakers are required to send 1 solo email to their list and promote the summit on their social media.

Affiliate Details

While summits are great for overall visibility and making new connections, a little extra income never hurts either, right?

That’s exactly why I’ve set up an affiliate program for the TraumaWise ToolKit where you’ll receive a 30% commission (or 50% for those who contribute a premium to the Tool Kit) from all sales from traffic you refer to the event. Payouts will be made 21 days after the last day of the summit.
