Tips for your prESENTATION
  • Content is king – If you really want to impress the audience, pack your presentation with powerful content. 
  • Make it compelling – Our audience is composed of administrators, support staff, clinicians, direct caregivers, and industry partners. Learning levels are diverse, with the majority of participants being high level/theoretical to mid-level/practical. 
  • Be authentic and vulnerable – Don’t be afraid to speak of failure as well as success.
  • Customize – Be sure your content truly speaks to the association audience and is customized to their unique situations.
  • Knowledge sharing is the most effective marketing – Sales pitches disguised as education will result in poor ratings and lost opportunities.

NOTE: Presentations must be educational. We understand that some of our speakers wish to network with attendees and showcase their services, but we kindly ask that your presentation not be a sales pitch. Networking time will be made available to speakers, sponsors, and attendees for this purpose. We appreciate your cooperation.
