Speaker Guidelines

Thank you for presenting at the 2018 Australian Insurance Law Association National Conference.

Please check the online conference program to re-confirm the day, time and room of your presentation. Whilst we don’t anticipate any changes please check the program again prior to your arriving at the conference.

Below are some tips to assist you, most importantly please ensure you start and finish your presentation on time.

Before the Session

  • Please upload your presentation files to the online folder by COB 31 October 2018 (embed any content such as audio or video – do not link to external files).  You should also bring a copy to the meeting on a USB as a back up.  If you need to update your files in the online folder please do so clearly showing they are an update in the file name
  • When you register at the venue you will be directed to the location of your presentation room.  Please touch base with the audio visual technician at least 1 hour prior to your presentation to double check your files are uploaded and ready to go
  • The presentation computers use PowerPoint with Windows operating system. As a backup, we suggest you bring your laptop if you use a Mac or require a specific or uncommon program
  • Please ensure your PowerPoint presentations are in 16:9 aspect as 4:3 aspect (square) presentations will not fill the venues screens
  • Please go to your session room 15 minutes prior to the start time of that session (not just your presentation) to meet the session chair (their name will be noted in the program)

 During the Session

  • Please be seated in the front row so that you can move to the lectern quickly at the end of the previous presentation
  • There will be AV technician in the room to trouble shoot any technical issues should they arise
  • The length of your presentation is noted in the program. During your presentation, please keep a strict eye on the time. Your allocated presentation length includes time for questions.  If your presentation takes up all of the allocated time, delegates will be encouraged to ask you questions during the catering breaks
  • At the end of your presentation the chair will ring a bell for you to conclude immediately. The chair will only ask for questions if you have finished in time
  • At the conclusion of the session any time remaining will be used for questions and discussion with all presenters.  Please remain in the room and in the front row until the end to answer any questions that arise

There are no facilities for photocopying at the venue. We suggest you bring a copy of your slides and any handouts with you (if desired).
