IF YOU ARE A SPEAKER /REGISTER AS A SPEAKER

YOU AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING

Please note that your acceptance of our invitation to be a speaker at the STEP Conference assumes that papers and presentations will be provided for inclusion in the delegate materials. Failure to provide these items significantly impacts the value of the conference and the standard of professionalism which is associated with this event. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!

It is the policy of the Steering Committee that speakers should not make remarks which disparage or promote any one or more of the offshore Caribbean jurisdictions which participate in the organization of the conference (or their laws or "products") to the detriment of the other offshore Caribbean jurisdictions since this will undoubtedly offend delegates from those jurisdictions and run contrary to the spirit of the Conference. Presentations may nevertheless usefully refer to or compare the laws of those jurisdictions provided this is done in a respectful manner.

In addition, the Conference attracts delegates from other competing offshore jurisdictions in which STEP has Branches, and highly negative remarks about those jurisdictions are strongly discouraged.
 
EXPENSE POLICY
STEP Caribbean Conference is a not for profit Association where all money raised for the event is used to underwrite the conference with the remainder going to back to the participating STEP branches for education.  

To this end, we only cover the cost of our speaker’s registration, which includes:

 
• All hospitality events listed on Conference Schedule

UBSTANTIVE PAPERS AND PRESENTATIONS
Because our speakers are seasoned professionals and of influence, it is important to us that we be able to provide speaker papers to our delegates that reflect your best thinking and opinion on your topic.
