Speaker Kit

We look forward to having you speak at HR West—presented for over 35 years by NCHRA, the second-largest HR association in the country.

HR West is where HR professionals go to find out What’s Next—and this year’s event promises to see the largest attendance ever!

Partner With Us and Get National Exposure as a Top Tier Speaker

A rising tide raises all ships. Let’s piggy-back each other’s promotional efforts — we welcome your co-marketing ideas.  We have four tiers of partnership to help you make the most out of your speaking opportunity. Contact Jenna Watson, at jwatson@nchra.org to let us know which tier you select:


Tier 4 Speakers (Bronze)

As a Tier 4 Speaker, you enjoy the basic publicity that all speakers receive, i.e. listing on the website, listing in the full pre-conference brochure that is mailed to tens of thousands of HR professionals, listing in the conference app, as well as listing in the onsite conference guide.

Session Title and Link

Your official marketed title and link will be live in November 2018 and can be found at hrwest.org/sessions/. Contact jwatson@nchra.org to request a “short link” url of your individual session which you can then link to from emails, social media posts, and more.

Presentation Slides
Your final presentation slides are due in January 2019 and will be made available to attendees before and after the conference. We welcome personal style and creativity in PowerPoint presentations. However, for consistency, we do ask you to include the following:

  • First slide: *Marketed title of presentation, speaker(s) name and speaker(s) title.
  • Last slide: Speaker(s) contact information.
  • All slides: Download the HR West logo to the left (resize as needed).
  • If your slides are colored, please use this transparent logo on those slides.
  • Projectors will be set to 4:3

Speaker Discount 

Conference attendees can receive a discount on registration through you, so feel free to share your promo code widely. Use this code as a nice benefit to your audience and a way to remind them of your speaking session. If you forgot your discount code, please email Laurie Pehar Borsh, at lauriepeharborsh@lpbpr.com.
