Session Description: Many of us have thought about submitting a topic for a conference presentation and either have not actually submitted one or have been rejected after doing so.  This session will explore the methods used by frequent presenters to discover their secrets in planning, preparing and presenting their best material - and getting asked to submit agasin and again.  The panelists will share specifics of their process. Some of them have been on the selection committee and can tell you about that process.  This will be a lively session with audience participation and Q&A time.
Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how the best presenters prepare for the submittal process.
  • Understand how submittals are selected.
  • Learn how to set up a good presentation - and get asked back!
  • Recognize the value of using peer reviews before submitting.
