YP Summit Promise

For those in motion, it’s about change – about bending space and slicing time. It’s about professionalism and perspective. It’s about activating curiosity and cultivating community growth. It’s about everyone. It’s about you.

Our promise is to provide an inclusive experience that will foster the personal and professional development of YPs in Greater Omaha.

Over the course of the day, through change-making keynotes and empowering breakouts, we will celebrate differences, foster connections, grow inclusivity and initiate positive, community-enhancing change – all with the goal of bringing a new layer of vibrancy to our community.

Breakout Speaker RFPs

The YP Summit is an annual event that brings together more than 1,500 young professionals and community leaders under one roof for an entertaining and educational day of personal, professional and community development.

To deliver on our promise, we are seeking proposals from candidates who are interested in engaging with attendees via a large group session or workshop during the YP Summit.

Breakout Session Categories

We are focusing on identifying speakers who will engage with young professionals in a meaningful way by sharing their expertise, stories, advice, and nuggets of knowledge and wisdom on any number of topics that speak to the professional and personal growth of attendees or the betterment of the community in which we live, work, and play.


Examples of topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Professional Development
    Engaging and intentional content that will help YPs be more successful in the workplace.
  • Personal Development (including health and well-being)
    Inspiring content that will help YPs live a more happy or successful life, both inside and outside of their respective careers.
  • Community and Economic Development
    What will empower YPs to enhance OUR city and actively engage with the local public and private sectors to build strong communities, industries and markets.
  • Other
    You’re the expert, so let us hear your ideas! What innovative or “not your regular” conference workshops do YOU think YPs need to hear?
