Using the speaker landing page

Last Updated:

Speakers have a landing page that allows them to easily access their assigned sessions or speaker bios. From the speaker landing page, speakers can edit their sessions, start practice sessions, view their upcoming events, and view/edit their speaker bio. A You're the Speaker indicator will appear on their assigned upcoming events.

Note: If a speaker is invited to edit a session, and the event is still in the Draft state, the speaker will see the event as part of the event list on their Upcoming Events page.
