Q: What are the main differences between Friday and Saturday?

Besides location, Friday is limited access for speakers only. Saturday will be at a church and is more directly centered on the Christian faith.

Q: Can I speak on Friday and Saturday?

Depending on availability in spots, this is possible. We will schedule these talks starting in July.

Q: Is Friday for industry or Google employees only?

This conference is opened to everyone, and we will select talks based off of appropriateness of content and qualifications of speaker. Friday will be opened to all speakers which include: non Google employees, students, etc. If you are not a speaker or Google employee, you get to join on Saturday. If you’d like to join on Friday, then submit a talk!

Q: What sort of talk should I submit?

Based off of current submissions this year (and from past years), the talks generally fall into three categories:
 — IDENTITY – an Identity talk is a personal or professional testimony. It captures a personal and unique experience. Analogous to giving a testimony in church.
 — IDEOLOGY – an Ideology talk is based off of scripture and theological insight and revelation. These talks resemble mini-sermons for people who’ve had a particular message they’d connected with and would like to share.
 — INNOVATION – an Innovation talk tends to focus more on technology, research, science, etc. It’s more focused on vocation, career, and innovations of specialized areas. These resemble TED talks most.
