Tips for your presentation
- Content is king – If you want to impress the audience, pack your presentation with powerful content.
- Make it compelling – Our audience comprises administrators, support staff, clinicians, direct caregivers, and industry partners. Learning levels are diverse, with most participants being high-level/theoretical to mid-level/practical.
- Be authentic and vulnerable – Don’t be afraid to speak of failure and 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. For this purpose, networking time will be made available to speakers, sponsors, and attendees. We appreciate your cooperation.
