A: See Why (and How) You Should Become an SAP TechEd Speaker  by thorstenster

The site states:

"Approved speakers receive:

  • Complimentary lecture-only conference registration
  • SCN Contribution points"

Quote from Stephen Johannes, previous speaker:

"You don't need to present on "newest stuff" to get accepted....It is also a great way for you to deepen your own personal understanding of a particular topic. Even though you may think you know a topic very well, it is amazing how building the presentations will force you to pick up every single detail as part of you research. " - stephen.johannes


Q: I'm experiencing logon issues and have additional questions

In this Cisco blog, Cisco says by sharing you “spark new ideas” Do I Really Have to Share? and "Good leaders should always be learning and then sharing that knowledge with others" - this is another reason to submit.
