At the same time, there are many engineers, data scientists, architects and researchers who are only beginning to hear rumblings of graph technology and the numerous benefits businesses across every industry are currently experiencing.
There are countless stories to be told by graph database experts to an audience of budding graph database lovers – both parties are ready and willing to be acknowledged by each other.
That’s why we’re launching the Neo4j Speaker Program. We wanted to create a program that fosters our thought leaders efforts to speak at relevant conferences around the globe.
What is the Neo4j Speaker Program?
Our program details are simple:
Neo4j is hand-selecting a variety of technology and industry-focused conferences around the world for the program. If you submit a Neo4j-related talk to one of these conferences – and your talk is accepted – we will provide you with up to $1,000 in travel stipend.
In other words, we will cover the cost of your travel, hotel accommodations and meals around your conference adventure!
Why become a speaker?
Being a conference speaker helps to builds your reputation as a thought leader as you:
- Put yourself in front of important peers in your industry
- Empower others by providing insight and knowledge
- Open up relevant and invaluable career opportunities
- Learn and improve your own skills through teaching others
How the Neo4j Speaker Program Works
After you register for the program, you’ll receive an email every few weeks containing lists of upcoming conferences with open CFPs (“call for papers” – conferences that are currently accepting talk submissions) with information on how to apply.
Included in the qualifying-conferences are leading events like Strata Data Conference, GraphQL Summit, QCon, LondonConnect, Devoxx, Code Motion, VoxxedDays, JavaZone, Gartner Data Analytics, PyConf and more.
When your talk gets accepted, we’ll help you promote your talk and assist with booking flights and lodging for your trip!

For a limited time, we’re also offering this limited-edition Neo4j Speaker hoodie for speakers who submit their talk to at least 5 qualifying conferences!
To redeem your hoodie, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the title and abstract of your presentation along with the names of the 5+ conferences to which you submitted.
