When is my presentation / paper due? Thursday, September 14th, 2017
Because our speakers are seasoned professionals and of influence, it is important to us that we be able to provide speaker papers to our delegates that reflect your best thinking and opinion on your topic. Speaker papers will be an additional item to your presentation and are of significant value to our delegates as they continue to learn and lead in their fields. Papers can be articles that you have authored or what you consider to be the best thinking from other sources. We do not expect you to produce new material just for the conference but we are always looking for leading edge information that you feel should be made available to the delegates to further enrich your topic.
Please submit to Jillian Lang at email@example.com
What if my presentation is late?
At the conference we are very busy working with the AV team to ensure a professionally run event. We are not always able to get online or have time to check our emails so please do not email updated presentations while we are onsite.
What if my presentation requires handouts?
What time do I present? CONFERENCE SCHEDULE
Please refer to the conference schedule posted online. As we may need to make some minor adjustments up until the start of the conference, be sure that you check the schedule the day before you present.
Please identify yourself to one of the Springstreet staff at the break prior to your presentation.
The date, time and descriptor of your presentation are posted on the conference schedule.
Do I need to bring a copy of my presentation or my laptop?
You should bring a copy with you on a memory stick as a backup. However, the presentation that you have submitted, by the due date, will be preloaded onto the technician’s computer and will be on the screen ready to go. You will have a wireless mouse on the podium to advance the slides. There will be a TV monitor in front of you so that you can see your presentation without turning around.
The conference has been established as a not for profit so that all money raised goes to the underwriting of the conference expenses and supporting educational initiatives of the local chapter of STEP. As a result, we are unable to pay our speakers or their expenses, however, we invite you to the entire event including receiving all delegate materials and taking part in all hospitality and networking activities as our guest.
To this end, we only cover the cost of the speaker’s registration which includes:
