Conservation Conference 2019 Speaker Nominations Now Being Accepted!

Speaker Nomination Form

The deadline to submit speaker nominations is March 29, 2019.

The WHC Conservation Conference, November 19-20 in Baltimore, is an opportunity for attendees to gain valuable information on the latest in corporate conservation strategies and techniques. As a Conference presenter, you’ll be addressing leaders in corporate social responsibility, environmental health and safety, government agencies and NGOs – all working to create and maintain healthy ecosystems.

What we’re looking for

  • Presentations should have a strong relevance to the WHC C-Suite-16, a list of 16 common business needs that can be supported by conservation. Developed by WHC as a framework and a starting point for strategy discussions, the C-Suite 16 highlights the most likely intersection points between business and nature in three critical business areas—Operations, Corporate Citizenship and Business Management. Suggestions for presentations include, but are not limited to:
    • Describe how your project or program achieved one or more of the 16 business needs outlined in the C-Suite 16.
    • Share how your company used WHC Conservation Certification® as a framework for a multi-site or company-wide conservation or sustainability initiative designed to meet business needs.
    • Detail how your participation/research/partnership with a corporate conservation program may support business needs at the intersection of nature, operations, corporate citizenship and business management.
  • Presentations may include case studies illustrating success, highlighting partnerships for implementation and practical lessons learned.
  • Presenter should be an expert or leading practitioner in their company or field of study. For question regarding your submission, please contact

Conservation Conference features five different types of presentation experiences: panels, roundtables, workshops, general sessions and quick-fire sessions. Upon acceptance of your proposed topic, WHC staff will contact you to further discuss your topic and assign the best format for your presentation based upon available resources.
