Apply to be a speaker at Jobber Summit

Jobber Summit brings valuable, actionable sessions to an audience of home service business owners and teams. We’re looking for speakers from home service, business, or entrepreneurial perspectives to share real advice and drive real change. Check out our sessions from the 2022 event here.

Guidelines for applying

Before applying through the submission form at the bottom of the page, read our guidelines:

Who should apply?

Home service business owners with actionable insight to share. 
Business professionals or entrepreneurs not in home service that have applicable and actionable advice.
Professional business speakers that can tailor a presentation for the home service industry.

Not sure if you’re a fit? Apply anyway! Or reach out to [email protected] and ask.

What kind of sessions are we looking for?

  • Our sessions will be in three formats: presentations (one speaker presenting), fireside chats (interview-style with a moderator asking a speaker questions), and panels (up to three speakers facilitated by a moderator). Indicate in the form which option suits you best.
  • We are only looking for sessions that are actionable and specific—no fluff! Be sure to outline what key takeaways your session has for attendees in your application.
  • Fit the content to the audience. Our attendees are small business owners and teams in the home service industry—the plumbers, HVAC technicians, contractors, landscapers, home and office cleaners, and more who we rely on every day. It’s a diverse audience, so make sure your session is applicable across home service professions.
  • No self-promotions or sales pitches. Jobber Summit is meant to be educational and inspirational.
