Imagine uploading your presentation today, walking into your session room on conference day and having your slides projected! Our provided Speaker Ready Room service offers this opportunity. So what do you need to do to use this system correctly?
Upload Your Presentation
We require all session speakers to use AnitaB.org designed PowerPoint template with the GHC 18 theme. You must use this template in its entirety for your panels, presentations, and handouts. You may add your company logo as long as you don’t remove our GHC 18 logos. You can download the templates here:
- Track Session Speakers — 4:3 ratio template
You’ll need to submit your slides to our speaker ready room system. This does not apply for Mentoring Circles and Poster Presenters.
You must upload your presentation four hours prior to your session – but there’s no need to wait! You can submit your presentation as soon as you’re ready. All you need is your email ID and the password you received via email to log in. We sent emails to all participants, but if you are the lead for your session, you may want to communicate with your fellow speakers to prepare the presentation materials.
Our system includes a section for you to add support files such as videos, audio files, spreadsheets, and other materials you may want to incorporate. Additional guidelines can be found here.
If you did not receive an email with your information, send us an email.
Check in at the Speaker Ready Room
You must check in at the Speaker Ready Room at least four hours before your session, regardless of when you uploaded your presentation. To avoid any mistakes during your presentation, we want to ensure that your slides were uploaded correctly. Bring a memory device or CD-ROM to the Speaker Ready Room so you can review your slides and make any last minute changes.
We will open the room every day during the celebration. Feel free to use at your pleasure.
Tuesday: 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Wednesday: 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.
