  • Practitioner: Attendees are proficient with the topic, but will learn new and challenging material. 3 to 7+ years of experience.
  • Expert: The material is suitable for attendees who have advanced knowledge or job responsibilities (such as supervisor or manager). 10+ years of experience.

Session Types

  • Presentation
    Presentations provide attendees an overview of the title topic. A presentation can be a case study, research report, demonstration, or informational session about a topic of interest. Presentations usually include slides and/or handouts, and many presenters offer audience participation or a Q&A at the end.
  • Training Solution
    A training solution is a practical, solution-focused presentation that is interactive and audience-engaging. The talk can highlight and demonstrate how to solve a problem and will give attendees an opportunity to participate through facilitated discussion about the topic and solution.
  • Spotlight Talk
    During a 50-minute moderated session, 2 spotlight talks will be presented back-to-back with complementary or contrasting topics focused on timely tech comm topics. Each speaker will talk for 20 minutes and then there will be approximately 10 minutes at the end of the session for questions to both speakers.
