Presentation Deadlines & Specifications

Please make a note of the following important submission deadlines and file preparation guidance. Please note this information is only applicable if you will be supporting your speaking opportunity with a PowerPoint file:

DEADLINE – Friday 30th September 2022– You will need to submit your preliminary presentation file to Sarah and Olivia  at  for content review. We will check your slides to ensure they address the topics/ points previously agreed with our Conference Director, Olivia Ryan-Hill. If any editing is required, please ensure that you re-submit your presentation to Sarah at as soon as possible. During this process we check your slides to ensure they display/navigate correctly and that any video/ audio/ animations you have included work as intended.


N.B. As stated, sales/ product pitches are not permitted, we want to make this a constructive and enlightening conversation around shared challenges and developments and in our experience those sharing thought leadership will garner the best response from the audience.

  • Your attention to these deadlines will help us create a seamless programme which will be launched and navigated from a single master laptop in the conference theatre. Use of your own laptop will therefore not be permitted – thank you in advance for your understanding.
  • Presentations must be submitted prior to the event in Microsoft PowerPoint. Please also submit a PDF version of your presentation so we can check for corporate/ non-standard font use.
  • Your presentation should be created and saved in On-screen Show format (16:9)/ widescreen.
  • Please ensure the number of slides submitted is suitable for your speaking time – we have a busy schedule, therefore overrunning will not be possible.
  • Extensive corporate profiling is discouraged – please include no more than 2 x slides that give an overview of your company.
  • If you are using any corporate fonts please also supply these along with any movie/music file codec.
  • Please ensure you have written permission for the use of any music/photos or film used in your presentation.
  • If you plan to show video(s) during your presentation, please do not embed them into your PowerPoint file. Instead, submit them as separate/ stand-alone files, hyperlinked into your presentation file. We will be happy to link the videos in for you, if the appropriate set-up instructions are also provided.
