Information for Presenters

Paper Presenters

•  Please note- Presentation from personal laptop/macbook is not permitted
•  Please ensure slides are produced in either Keynote or PowerPoint no other format will be supported.
•  Please ensure slides are sized to 16:9 ratio and no other size.
•  If you can - be brief (as a guide no more than 6 bullets/points per slide) – if you need to include more detail create a hand out. Presentation slides should be thought of as aids to what you are saying on stage. Try not to replicate word for word – expand on the points in your spoken presentation. This will engage your audience more.
•  Use appropriate fonts: think big (min. 24pts) and think clear (sans-serif or Arial). If possible, test your slides in advance: run the slide show in ‘presenter mode’ – stand approx. 8ft from your screen and see if you can read the slides. If you can’t you will need to consider the design of your slides.
•  Use appropriate colours: not too bright, high contrast, consistent. Remember that what looks good on your monitor does not necessarily look good on the big screen.
•  Create contrast using font size and colours.

•  Please ensure that all video is either native WMV for PowerPoint embedded files or .mov for Keynote embedded files. 
•  Presentation slides can be provided in advance by email to tom@productionpeople.org or uploaded at least 30 minutes before the start of your session at the event venue.
