#TribeUp! Blogalicious Weekend 2017 Call for Speakers is Now Open!

Application deadline: 8PM EST, June 2, 2017

Our 2017 Conference Theme is…

#TribeUp

Everywhere we turn, we’re seeing the spirit of Tribes make its presence known. Whether in the form of an Instagram pod or a Facebook community; a podcast audience or a Slack group, the desire to form a circle of like-minded individuals with a common goal and respected leadership is everywhere. And here’s the secret that us influencers have known all along: the level of engagement within a well-led tribe is through the roof. This is exciting, not only for content creators, but for media and marketers, too.

As so keenly put by Seth Godin almost a decade ago:

“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.”
(Seth Godin, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us)

We want to take that notion one step further and highlight your ‘how.’ What are some of the smartest, most fun, and most powerful ways you’ve gone about building your tribe?
For our 9th annual Blogalicious Weekend, we’re celebrating the importance of tribes — the trusted communities that each of you has built and are so expertly leading. In doing so, we’re paying homage to our tribe of multicultural, social media enthusiasts who continually build and foster platforms; destinations, resources, collaborations and connections that bring to light movements, information, life-hacks and social issues to the world around them. From where we stand, “Tribe” is not just another “it” word, but a way of life and sense of kinship that elevates everyone and everything around us. With an inspired tribe, the ability to make change and leave a legacy is beyond limits

It’s time to #TribeUp!

 

Interested in speaking? Great! Here’s what you need to know about the call for speakers:

Click Here to fill out the application.
Please read the instructions carefully!

Event date is October 5-8th, 2017. When applying, please be available to speak that weekend.

We read/view every single submission. You will receive an email notice notifying that your application has been received.

Application deadline is Friday, June 2nd! We’re on a very tight deadline so for this reason, absolutely NO exceptions.

Decision day is Sunday, June 25, 2017. You will receive an email notification from Blogalicious letting you know if your submission has been accepted or declined with next steps. Please do not email Blogalicious before that date.

This year we are curating a more streamlined event program. We’re looking for intermediate to advanced level facilitators to guide our community.  Our agenda this year includes masterclasses, siestas and tribe gatherings. With that said, as much as we would love to, we cannot accept every single submission.

Selected Speakers will receive complimentary Influencers registration for Blogalicious Weekend. You will be responsible for covering your own lodging and transportation.

Be yourself! Show your personality! #TribeUP!

 

Part 2: Notable Keynotes and Celebs that Showed Up and Showed Out at Blogalicious Weekend

[Read Part 1, HERE]

Blogalicious 2013: Harriette Cole, Luvvie Ajayi and Elisa Camahort-Page

IMG_1994

2013 was a big year for Blogalicious – it was our 5th birthday! That year we returned to Atlanta and celebrated our milestone with a bang. Life stylist and motivational speaker, Harriette Cole moved participants to tears (literally) in her VIP workshop on Mastering Your Elevator Pitch; while Luvvie Ajayi and Kailei Carr served as the perfect hostesses of the Scandal Premiere Watch Party presented by XFINITY CelebrateBlackTV.com – the Olivia Pope outfits were fiyah!!

And rounding out our ‘Create.Build.Fund’ theme was none other than Elisa Camahort Page, co-founder of BlogHer, who gave one of our most impactiful keynotes on Funding Your Dream: What to know, who to know, and perhaps most importantly: What NOT to do. Our 5th birthday was pretty awesome, don’t you think?

 

Blogalicious 2014: Derreck Kayongo, Lamman Rucker and Issa Rae

 better d

CNN Hero Derreck Kayongo’s energy was infectious! He shared his story about how his Global Soap Project came to be and then ended the keynote by getting us all to participate in a song. We’re inspired by the work he continues to do through his current role as CEO of the National Center for Human and Civil Rights.

 

lamman1

OWN Greenleaf actor, Lamman Rucker visited Blogalicious 2014 and spent quality time with the men at a private luncheon hosted by Toyota. Following the lunch, the meet and greet line to take a photo with Lamman extended well past the ballroom doors. Ladies and babies alike loved having him there! He was gracious, funny and had a heart of gold.

Issa-rae-awkward-black-girl-blogalicious-2014

 

We had the pleasure and good time of listening to Issa Rae give a keynote Q&A moderated by another media maven, Luvvie Ajayi. Issa gave us insight into the not-so-glamorous work that has gone into her ascent from YouTuber to premium cable TV series producer and actress. We took all the notes.

 

Blogalicious 2015:  Hon. Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Paul Carrick Brunson, Natasha Eubanks, Ana Flores and Mahisha Dellinger

mayor Stephanie

In 2015 we hosted Blogalicious Weekend in Baltimore. It was a somber time because the city was on high alert due to the high profile Freddie Gray case. Baltimore city Mayor, the Honorable Stephanie Rawlings-Blake talked about her rise into politics and how naysayers tried to stop her path to greatness.  “You can’t imagine how a fly haircut and lip gloss can affect some people.” Word.

 

brunson panel

Blogalicious co-founder, Stacey Ferguson moderated a panel featuring YBF Founder: Natasha Eubanks, We All Grow Latina Founder: Ana Flores, serialprenuer: Paul Carrick Brunson and Curlz Founder: Mahisha Dellinger. They dropped gems about how they’ve built their empires and gave the attendees the encouragement to stay the course.

Blogalicious 2016: Nely Galán and Ramon Ray 

nely galan

Nely opened Blogalicious weekend by sharing how one defining moment in her career inspired her to make a shift and start her multi-million business empire. She also emphasized that each woman should be her own Prince Charming. Women should set out to create their own rich life in every way. Another thing she said: “buy buildings, not shoes!”

ramon ray

Ramon Ray, Publisher and Exeutive Editor of Smart Hustle Magazine closed Blogalicious Weekend sharing his secret sauce for getting the media talking about YOU and your product or service.  The sauce was so tasty, that 45 minutes was simply not enough time for Ramon and Justice Fergie told him to keep talking for another fifteen minutes! The attendees loved his informative talk and his energy was infectious.

As you can see, we’ve been SO fortunate to have so many amazing speakers grace our stage. Each year, our keynotes bring a different set of perspectives, motivation and energy to our event that we hope stick with your for months afterwards. We’re all about lifting one another up and learning from these captains of industry is so critical to our mission. Oh, and the occasional appearance from a comedian-R&B singer-spokesmodel-rap legend-TV Chef doesn’t hurt either!

Announcing our #PerfectPitch IV Finalists!

It sounds like a cliché, but it’s the truth: each year the competition gets tougher! This year, 17 business-minded and daring individuals entered submissions to the Perfect Pitch IV contest. Let us begin by saying CONGRATULATIONS to all 17 contestants, because we know that submitting required a lot of courage, preparation and energy. After tallying the scores from our illustrious panel of judges, we are ecstatic to announce the following three finalists:

Chukwudum Chukwudebelu, CHUMZ

In the fall semester of 2014, I had a couple of textbooks that I tried to sell to the bookstores, but they were offering me next to nothing in return—$10 or $20 back for books I bought for about $150 and so on. Feeling discouraged, I decided to try to sell them online as an alternative and a found a website that bought them back for $50 and up per book (still only 1/3 of what I had spent). I then started to wonder: if the bookstores are going to continue to drive prices upwards whilst keeping buy-back percentages low, why can’t we recycle the textbooks and resell them to other college students who would buy at a less expensive and negotiated prices? I immediately contacted Kareem Garriga, our technical writer, about this bare-bones idea and together, we conceived the implementation of a software platform where college students could buy,sell,swap, and rent their textbooks.
