Speaker Guidelines

Preparing your Presentation – Technical Aspects

Presentation Format

Please use Microsoft PowerPoint (*.ppt or .pptx), OpenOffice/LibreOffice Impress, or Adobe PDF to guarantee your presentation will open successfully.

If you use MS PowerPoint, we recommend that you save your PowerPoint presentation using .ppt- or .pptx-format and not .pps or .ppsx.

Images or Video Files

JPG images are the preferred file format for inserted images. PNG, GIF, TIF or BMP formats will be accepted as well. The resolution should be between 72-200 dpi. The size should not exceed 250KB.

If you wish to include a video file in your presentation, the MPEG-4 and WMV formats should work with no difficulties.

Font and Style

Please use a minimum size of 16pt. Suggested fonts: Arial, Tahoma, Calibri

Use of special fonts not included in MS-Windows 10 (English version) can cause the wrong formatting of your presentation.

We advise using high contrast layouts, for example light text on a dark background

Be Prepared! Helpful tips for your presentation

You’re in charge! Ensure that your computer and audio equipment are fully charged

Stay connected: Make sure you have a stable internet connection and are on a desktop computer with which you are familiar. For the best results, use the same device you used for the rehearsal.

Eyes on you: Set your camera at eye level. Also, position your self-preview window close to your webcam (by using your mouse to move your video preview). This will encourage your eyes to look near the webcam, rather than off to the side, giving your viewers the impression that you are looking at them.

Minimise distractions: Turn off your phone and exit any programs that might display notifications during your presentation. Sit in a quiet room with a harmonious background (like an office) that will not distract the audience.

Light up your presentation! Two small lamps on either side of your computer, placed slightly behind the camera, is a simple way to achieve attractive lighting. Avoid having a window behind you.

Timing is everything: Arrive to your webinar early and respect the time limits for your presentation.
