SPEAKER QUICK TIPS





Submit Your Form Checklist

  1. First fill out your CFPC disclosure slide (step 1) before completing the electronic agreement form.
  2. Fill out the agreement form (step 2), and upload your CFPC disclosure slide.
  3. Submit a short speaker biography (2-3 sentences for introduction purposes).

PowerPoint Presentations

You are responsible for bringing your final presentation on a USB (PowerPoint format). There will be a technician in the room where you are scheduled to speak that will assist in loading your presentation. Please be sure to visit the technician during the break prior to your presentation. Do not forget to include the required disclosures slide at the beginning of your session. Declarations must be verbalized at the start of your presentation.

Speaker PowerPoint presentations will be made available to delegates on a private page of the CGS website after the conference. If you do not wish to have your presentation shared as a PDF post-conference, you must opt out by emailing events@secretariatcentral.com - more importantly, please also let your audience know this during your presentation! Some delegates may be very interested in receiving the information after and are often disappointed to know it isn’t available.

  • Screen
  • Projector
