Presenter Packets


Do you want to apply to be a presenter this year or next year in the main program, on a panel or interactive, in the childcare or youth programs or in the Rising Star Chef & Presenter Showcases or do a Vender Interactive Talk??


Then this packet is for you!!



                        Dear Potential Presenter for 2004 International Raw Festival,

We are delighted to send to you a speaker application packet for our fifth annual International Raw & Living Foods Festival to be held in Portland, Oregon, August 18 through August 22.

 It will be necessary to complete the application, sign all of the appropriate forms, and return the packet by June 15, 2004 in order to be considered as a presenter for the 2004 year’s event.


            The International Raw & Living Foods Festival attracts participants from all over the world. Last year we had over 800 participants coming from nearly all of the fifty states and from countries all over the world such as Puerto Rico, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, England and Norway, to name just a few. This year’s event will expand the margin of influence and exposure a presenter will receive. We have had the most well respected and highly esteemed leaders of the raw & living foods movement as Presenters in the past. We continue to also search for those who haven’t yet made the “headlines” but who are quietly and steadfastly contributing to the overall expansion of this movement, thereby making the world a better place.


Below, you will find the application, a presenter/vendor release form, a video release form and an article, “Are You A Hitchhiker or Driver?” The application must be completed in its entirety, including specific talk titles with their write-ups for potential presentations, to be considered. The application needs to be accompanied with your photograph or directions for obtaining a photograph from your web site which meet the enclosed specifications. Your application will be returned to you if it is not complete. All final decisions on who will be presenting this year will be made shortly after the June 15 deadline.


            The International Festival is successful because it is a grass roots event. We hope that you will be asking yourself, “How can I help make this a success?” It is anticipated that all Presenters will participate directly in marketing and publicity within your sphere of influence through webs sites, links, direct mail and flyers at your own events. Please be very thorough in completing the application, to provide us with the most useful information concerning your ability to assist in various aspects of creating this world-wide happening. You will be contacted immediately or by June 20, 2004 as to the International Board’s decision on your presentation.

             If you have any questions concerning any of this process, you may contact myself or the International Association. You will find contact information listed below.  It is our pleasure to continue to offer this incredible opportunity for you to be a part of this most important work to bring about planetary change.

                                    In Service,

Are You a Hitchhiker or Driver?



With his/her thumb a hitchhiker says “you supply the money, the car, the gas, the maintenance & the time & energy to drive & I’ll come along for the ride…But, if I don’t like the direction you are taking or all that you are doing or how you are doing it, I will get out & hitch a ride with someone else.”


A Driver says, “I will work to buy a car & maintain it, follow all the needed rules to drive it, buy the gas & spend my energy & time driving to a location that is important to me. If others want to come along & there is room, I am glad to have their company.”


In many organizations today there are hitchhikers & Drivers/True Leaders. Which one are you? Are you one of those who always shows up to enjoy the feast, but never to work in the kitchen? Or… are you one of those True Leaders that knows that whatever they give to their organization they get back seven fold in numerous ways that support & nurture them personally?


The International Raw & Living Foods Association is looking to support & nurture those who support & nurture the Raw Movement as a whole & this Association…every one of us, as Movement Leaders, gains by events such as the yearly International Festival in ways far beyond the event itself. The International Festival & the International Association is dedicated to supporting those people, events & Leaders inside the Raw Movement who are genuinely interested in promoting a worldwide movement.




Are you on the list of Drivers/True Leaders??
