Presentation Types

Showcase Presentation

The aim of these sessions is to engage your audience and showcase something that you do or have found that could be interesting to other people in the field.

TIME: 20 mins

TIP: Try to focus on a few key points in depth, rather than present many large and/or complex ideas at once

Roundtable Discussion

The aim of these sessions is to inform your audience and help them develop some new ideas or play with a concept. In a roundtable there is more room for complex ideas and making connections between them is this format. 

TIME: 40 mins

TIP: Participants should leave your session with some key take-away. You might consider a workshop style exercise, break out groups or some other means of using prompts and activities to achieve this. 

Panel Discussion

The aim of these sessions is to stimulate conversation. It is a chance to explore a key topic or conference theme in an informal discussion. You might use a panel format with multiple guest/expert speakers, or a single speaker to open a conversation with the audience.  

TIME: 20 or 40 mins

TIP: What hot topic do you want to explore that you think people want to talk about?  

Pecha Kucha

The aim of these sessions is to provide a quick summary of an idea or an innovation.  The presentation is short and sharp. Typically, a Pecha Kucha is no more than 20 seconds per slide.  

TIME: 5 mins

TIP: Short, sharp and engaging.  


A poster is a great way to engage the audience over the various breaks during the conference. This is a way of sharing your ideas/research/innovations without having to take the stage and speak in front of others; they could also be a great conversation starter.   

TIME: Discuss during poster session.

TIP: Try to convey your research and/or innovations in an eye-catching and informative style.
