IAPP Online Speaker

In this work-from-home, social distancing environment, the IAPP is busy creating new online content and connections to help you stay up to date on the fast-moving world of privacy and data protection.

As the IAPP adds more online content, we have new speaking opportunities available across the organization – from web conferences to virtual KnowledgeNet meetings.

If you have an area of expertise and would like to share your skills and know-how by speaking remotely to audiences of privacy professionals, we want to hear from you.

Email us with information about your topic area, your location, and a bit about yourself. We will then match you with the best opportunity.

There are so many great opportunities available to our volunteers. Check out the categories below to see which types are best for you and let us know.
