To avoid it, remember:

•    Don’t try to tell a long story in a short time.

o    Select a story that will repesent what you want to tell or which is a fair extract of your total content

•    Make a few interesting points that your audience will remember. Be narrative!

•    Forget your large detailed figures and matrixes.



•    Husk at alle er samlet og lytter når du ønsker velkommen og gir praktisk informasjon

•    Vær sjenerøs med pauser

•    Gi ut e-postadresser

•    Panelistene frem foran publikum under spørsmålsrunden

•    Tilby en minglemulighet etterpå – lunch, middag, cocktails...

•    Husk snute og hale på sesjoner for sesjonen – velkomst, takk og avskjed


Vil vi ha navnelapper på konferansen og vil speakers og sesjonssjefer ha navnelapper som skiller seg ut?
