Proposed Speaker Lineup*

*Speaker Lineup Subject To Change.


What is the Schaumburg Health Summit?

The health and wellness fields are constantly evolving. There is new information coming out every week about what you should be eating, how you should be exercising, and what items to remove from your household in order to lose weight, get fit, and live longer than was previously thought possible. With so much information bombarding you on a regular basis, how are you supposed to know what to actually do to promote your health, wellness, and fitness?  

The Schaumburg Health Summit, developed and presented by Julie and Charlie Cates of Muscle Activation Schaumburg, is a one-day summit where local health and wellness professionals will be cutting through the nonsense and presenting on the facts. What new technologies are available for improving your health? What is the truth behind the latest diet crazes? What do you actually need to be doing for exercise?  

The Schaumburg Health Summit was created for the purpose of educating the residents of Schaumburg and the surrounding communities on ways to improve and maintain their health. They have assembled a rockstar speaker lineup comprised of local health, wellness, and fitness professionals who will be shedding light on important topics that apply directly to you.

Think You Could Be A Presenter?

Are You A:


Medical doctors, chiropractors, dentists, psychiatrists - we'd love to hear from you!


Nutritionists, wellness coaches, psychologists, physical therapists - give us a shout!


Personal trainers, group fitness instructors, CrossFit™ coaches - let us know if you are interested!


Massage therapists, energy workers, Reiki practitioners, accupuncturists - apply to present!


Do you have a health-related topic that is different than the status quo? We want to hear from you!  

We are looking to find speakers that can present on a health-related topic to an audience of community members, most of which will be from non-medical or health fields. In other words, it is a MUST that the lay population can understand your content.  

Requirements for speaking (if accepted):

  • Must be present for the entire summit
  • Must submit a full version of your talk via video by Friday, February 14, 2020 at 8:00 AM CST
  • 5-15 minute talk (ABSOLUTE MAX)
  • Going "deep" on one single topic, not "wide" on many

*Ideas that are either less likely to be accepted or not accepted at all:

  • Excessively vague or generalized
  • Pseudoscience
  • Personal belief systems lacking research
  • Purely-motivational
  • Uncredentialed coaching
  • Excessively-discussed or already ubiquitous
  • Solely about overcoming adversity or obstacles
  • “I did it, and so can you.”
  • Corporate, political, or religious agendas

*These are directly from TEDx.com and we think they are great guidelines for our speakers, too.

Is there a lower price to admission if I don't want any of the food? The price of admission includes heavy snacks being provided.
