Make sure what you're planning to present will fill 45 minutes with some time set aside for questions towards the end. Think about using case studies to clarify issues, trends and techniques. Go beyond presenting a simple story; emphasise lessons learned that can help delegates leave with new knowledge and how they can replicate what you’ve said in their workplace.
Planning your proposal
Top tips to engage a large audience
All conference sessions are live presentations, so think about how you’ll engage and perhaps challenge your audience. Remember that the best conference sessions are interactive so think about how you might achieve this. Think too about how you will ensure what you say can be taken away and acted upon.
Sessions can follow a number of different formats. Think about what you’re proposing and whether it is suitable for a large audience - 200+. Is it a presentation with Q&A, panel debate or interactive presentation and discussion, or something completely different? See the proposal process for more details of the types of formats delegates like to engage in.
