Y(our) Platform

1570-ECLE-49 Engage! Cleveland is gearing up for their 3rd Annual Cleveland Young Professionals Week and one of the highlights of the week is sure to be the Y(our) Platform event. This event is truly one-of-a-kind, as it gives young professionals a platform to finally share their experience, knowledge and ideas with the community. As YPs, we are used to attending events in order to learn from industry professionals; however, we don’t often take the time to share our own valuable knowledge with our peers.

Here at Engage! Cleveland, we know that our city is home to some of the most inspiring and motivating young professionals in the state, if not the nation. Which is why we are hosting Y(our) Platform once again and we want YOU to apply!

Whether you share a story of starting your own business, a life-changing event that taught you a valuable lesson, or perhaps you are just very passionate about Cleveland, YOUR experience can impact OUR community.

Each speaker will have 5 minutes to share their story and will use 20 supporting slides that will rotate every 15 seconds to inspire and motivate the audience.

Need some topic inspiration? Consider presenting on these topics:

  • How joining a YP organization made me a better person
  • Why you should wear your CLE pride on your sleeve
  • How a life experience changed my thinking

Applications will be accepted until midnight on April 6. Winners will be notified via email and then announced shortly after. A bio, your slides, and other materials will be due by Friday, April 22. Presentations will take place on Tuesday, June 21 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at Music Box Supper Club.
