What is a speaker pitch?
Each speaker has 10 seconds on the main stage in front of attendees to introduce their presentation and explain why people should choose it.
Why are we doing this?
The goal is to make it easier for the audience to decide which talks they want to attend.
How should you prepare?
The pitches should be simple and specific. No slides, no projector – just 10 seconds on the stage. You want to make it fun? Go for it! Just be sure your pitch
- Helps the audience learn more about your talk
- Takes 10 seconds or less
When will this happen?
The speakers will be invited to come on stage at different times, depending on when their talks are scheduled.
- Wednesday morning during the welcome for speakers who have talks on Wednesday morning
- Wednesday afternoon before the keynote for speakers who have talks on Wednesday afternoon
- Wednesday afternoon before the Ignite talks for speakers who have talks on Thursday morning
- Thursday morning before the keynote for speakers who have talks on Thursday afternoon
Ignite talks are not included in speaker pitches because these are presented to all attendees at the same time.
