Before the content kicks off and during session breaks, you will have the time to go through your presentation with the technical team and will be shown how to use the presentation clicker. 

Please ensure that you are at your allotted stage 20 minutes before the start. It is essential that you check into the room, even if you are not using slides as you will need to meet that stage's Chair. 

For a seamless transition between sessions on the day, we will run all presentations from a central laptop which will be operated by the technical team at that stage.

We request you bring a back-up copy of your presentation to the conference on a USB memory stick.

All speakers will be equipped with a microphone prior to the start of your session.

When preparing your presentation, please be conscious of the time allocated to you, which includes an  optional 5 minutes for questions at the end of the session. Your presentation should begin with the key points, in line with your session description.

When preparing your slides, please do consider the contrast between background colour, font colour and font size (no less than size 24), for optimum clarity. The presentation language is British English.

We request that you check your slides in the conference room ahead of your session starting.

Speaker presentations will be uploaded to the app after the event as a PDF. Should you wish your presentation not to be uploaded to the app, please let Janelle know.
