Scheduler should be searchable by speaker

I often find myself searching the conference scheduler by speaker name, but that doesn't seem to be indexed, even though it is (sometimes, albeit not reliably) a field.  It would be totally great if that were indexed :)

The keyword search in the Scheduler does include the speaker field. The bigger problem is that units often don't put speaker information in that field, so there's nothing to search. If they put it in the description, it will still get picked up, but unfortunately this is more a case of bad or missing data. :/

We've been brainstorming ways to prod program organizers to go back and add descriptions and speakers....
