24-hours in advance of the conference, you will receive a calendar invite and an email with a presenter link for your unique session(s). This link must be used to access your session. Any other links will not provide you access as the presenter.

1 hour prior to the start of your session, open the presenter link. We will then conduct a platform orientation and rehearsal to test your presentation, audio and video setup.

The following resources will ensure your presentation is compatible with the platform and runs smoothly.

Video & Audio Tips

  • Silence any ringers or notifications, close your door, alert co-workers, or family members that you can’t be disturbed
  • Make ‘eye-contact’ whenever possible. Don’t read your presentation script off the screen
  • Be more expressive than you would be in a traditional lecture (due to less nonverbal cues)
  • Prepare a glass of water so you will not need to get up during your presentation
  • Ensure your laptop is plugged in
