BEST PRACTICES FOR A SUCCESSFUL PRESENTATION

To ensure that AUVSI provides the best possible experience and a consistent approach to all our presentations, we ask our speakers to incorporate the following into every presentation:

  • Presentations should be high-energy, informal and engaging. Work in activities and opportunities for audience participation. Consider including a polling tool, a unique Twitter hashtag, or even group exercises to maintain engagement. 
  • Presentations outside of the Enterprise and Government Solutions track should remain product/service agnostic. Educational sessions should NEVER become a sales pitch and violators will not be invited to speak at future events. 
  • Be commanding and capture the audience’s attention 
  • Be bold, confident, and present your material as the expert that you are—own it! 
  • Be aware of time. 
  • When using PowerPoint, remember these key points: 
    • Keep it simple. Limit text, bullet points, transitions, and builds. 
    • Use high-quality graphics, including photographs. 
    • Have a visual theme, but avoid using PowerPoint templates 
    • When using charts ask yourself “How much detail do I need?” 
    • Choose your fonts and color scheme wisely. Make sure to space your text and use easy to read fonts. Remember you may have audience members seated in the back of a large space. 

SPEAKER TRAINING WEBINAR

We held speaker training sessions on April 5th from 3:00-4:00 PM ET and on April 7th from 11:00-12:00PM EST .  A recording of our speaker training webinar and slides are below.  To access the recording, please use the access code: A?a1v1Fp

STANDALONE PRESENTERS

XPONENTIAL will feature numerous standalone presentations throughout the week on a variety of topics. Standalone presenters will be allotted 20 minutes to present, including Q&A.


MODERATORS AND PANELISTS

  • If there is a change to the moderator or panelists, please reach out to education@auvsi.org as soon as possible. We will need updated speaker agreements and speaker details before making the change to the program.
  • Panels will be allotted 45 minutes to present, including Q&A.

MODERATORS

Thank you for agreeing to dedicate your time and talents to moderate an XPONENTIAL conference session. Your role as moderator is critical to the success of your session and the conference program. We hope you also enjoy this opportunity to connect with new contacts and demonstrate thought leadership.

When collaborating with your panelists, please consider these points:

  • SET THE OBJECTIVE—Set the primary objective and vision for the panel discussion. With what new understanding should the audience walk away? For example, you may discuss business or customer benefits, the possibilities and field results of a new technology, market drivers, current and projected adoption, current issues, practical applications and more.
  • STRUCTURE THE SESSION—Structure the time allocated for the session, how much time you'd like to spend on introductory remarks (as the moderator), individual remarks, moderated questions and Q&A with the audience.
  • PREPARE YOUR PANEL—Prepare a list of questions you plan to ask during the session. Most panelists will feel more comfortable if they can prepare at least a couple responses.
  • SET GROUND RULES—Set the ground rules about contextual sharing vs. promoting or selling company/product information. Comments and experiences relevant to the dialogue are great, but they need to save the sales pitches for their virtual booth.
  • ENCOURAGE ENTHUSIASM—Encourage speakers to command attention, be bold and engage the audience thru storytelling, case studies, factoids, descriptive language and future projections.
  • PLAN TO MEET—At a minimum, plan to meet your panelists one week before your session to make introductions, reiterate the vision, structure and ground rules and obtain AV support as needed. AUVSI can help coordinate pre-event meetings as needed. Please email education@auvsi.org if you would like assistance.

PANELISTS

A member of the XPONENTIAL 2022 team and/or your session moderator will touch base with you before the event about your session's content. Plan to participate in at least one discussion about your session’s format, direction, and planned questions from the moderator. Meetings will be scheduled and facilitated by your moderator and/or AUVSI staff in April.

Panel sessions at XPONENTIAL are discussion-based which means the use of multi-media materials is discouraged. Any plans for video or slides will need to be discussed with your session moderator and AUVSI.
