Allow alternative to Gravatar for Speaker Images

Description

Not everyone has a Gravatar setup, and asking someone non-technical to do this isn't always a 'smooth procedure'. In our case, our WordCamp is new, and so a good portion of our speakers are not from the WP community, they’re marketers, designers etc. less technical people, and asking them to create a gravatar (which in turn means a wp.com ) account, is more difficult than just asking them to email their photo.

A solution to this would be (and tbh, how I expected it to work), allowing Featured Images on the Speaker post type, then some frontend logic to use that image if it exists, otherwise use gravatar.
