- Allow time for questions/conversation: Campus Safety Conference attendees are most engaged when their questions are being answered. By curtailing your planned presentation and allowing time for questions, the attendees will take more away from your presentation. Additionally, the questions asked by attendees will likely result in the opportunity to cover information that you would plan into the lecture, but the audience will be able to absorb more of the content.
- Use your PowerPoints wisely: Campus Safety recommends keeping your slide deck short and sweet to keep attendees’ attention on the information being presented by you rather than trying to copy too much data from the slides. In an effort to reduce paper waste, we do not reproduce full slide decks.
- Be mindful of your session time slot: Campus Safety Conference provides attendees with a set schedule of sessions and events. In order to maximize the attendee experience, it is important that all events start and stop at times specified in our published schedules. There will be a minimum of 10 minutes in between each session, during which you may set up and tear down your equipment. Please be respectful of the next presenter in the room and continue any post-session conversations outside of the meeting room.
Campus Safety Conference does not print presentations for on-site distribution. Campus Safety will make presentations available to attendees in electronic format to download/print from a private website after the event.
Should you wish to provide your own copies of materials, you are welcome to do so. We ask only to be notified of this in advance.
