We’d like to ask you;
What would make this experience a “home run”? When you look after the event, what would make you thrilled that you took the time to do this presentation?”
Please let us know! Our committee will do our best to help!
Out of over 500 presentations, here’s what the most popular had in common;
1) It’s better to be more technical, than less detailed!
2) Include details to some Practical Questions everyone wants to know; (if applicable)
And also, another really important question;
Remember- everyone’s answers to these vary- and that’s OK. That’s why they’re interesting.
3) Didn’t fall into the B.S trap – keep it honest, and relatable.
Those who can speak with honesty, transparency and even vulnerability are like a breath of fresh air. We all know ML/AI projects are scrappy and never go to plan. (Talks/blogs celebrate ‘perfect deployment’ but this is a myth. Your learning experience is authentic and helpful in ways you may not have realized – it’s also what will make your talk authentic, and relatable!
4) Clear core takeaway (learning)
5) Engaged the audience! Allowed for “interactivity”
This will help them engage their imagination and make the talk more participatory, and ultimately more memorable! Encourage questions at the end of your talk! You might even be surprised with some of the responses you get after the talk is finished!
6) Invited long-term connections with the audience
7) Mastered timing (Make sure you do a “dry-run”)
8) Don’t take the bait: Stay away from the commercial
We look forward to meeting you soon,
