2019 QLD Conference – Guidelines for Speakers

Guidelines for Speakers 

Thank you for presenting at the 2019 ADOHTA QLD Conference.

Please check the online conference program to re-confirm the day, time and room of your presentation. Whilst we don’t anticipate any changes please check the program again prior to your session.

Below are some tips to assist you, most importantly please ensure you start and finish your presentation on time.

Before the Session

  • Your PowerPoint presentation should be prepared in Widescreen (16:9) format.
  • Please bring your PowerPoint presentation files to the conference on a USB (embed any content such as audio or video – do not link to external files).
  • When you register at the venue you will be directed to the session room. An AV technician will load your presentation on to a central computer and network it to the appropriate room and session. Please ensure that you load your presentation well in advance of your session.
  • The presentation computers use PowerPoint with Windows operating system. As a backup, we suggest you bring your laptop if you use a Mac or require a specific or uncommon program.
  • Your presentation overview is available on the online program page.
  • Please go to your session room 15 minutes prior to the start time to meet the session chair (their name is noted in the program), AV technician and familiarise yourself with the room and audio visual setup.

 During the Session

  • Please be seated in the front row or table so that you can move to the lectern quickly at the end of the previous presentation.
  • There will be an AV technician roaming between the session rooms to trouble shoot any technical issues should they arise.
  • The length of your presentation is noted in the program. During your presentation, please keep a strict eye on the time. Your allocated session length includes 5 minutes for questions if you wish to allow for questions/discussion.
  • The chair will show a time card at 5 minutes and 1 minute with a STOP card at the end of your session. The chair may also ring a bell for you to conclude immediately if required.


There are no facilities for photocopying at the venue. We suggest you bring a copy of your slides and any handouts with you (if desired).
