Presentation Types & Framework Guidance
There are a number of different types of presentations you can submit for as follows:
Masterclasses: Intensive three-hour or six-hour pre and post-conference skill-building workshops intended to provide hands-on experience and actionable tools and information participants can put to use immediately in their organizations. We are seeking presentations to meet the needs of strategists at every career stage, from those new to the field of strategy development and execution, to seasoned strategists looking for innovative ideas and approaches to incorporate into their practices.
Masterclass Workshops: This Masterclass takes a workshop style and can be 30 or 60 minutes in length. The masterclass is where you can share something that you do in your practice. Think of it as a Teachmeet with more time. We want to hear about your good practices that you have refined as your own over a period of time. Treat this as a window into something that you do that works really well that you want to share.
Deep Dive Sessions: 90-minute presentations of ideas/tools/approaches with a heavy emphasis on hands-on experiences for participants. These sessions are in response to feedback from conference attendees who asked for more practice-based learning opportunities.
Breakout Sessions: 60-minute presentations of topics following the more standard conference model. Presentations are anticipated to be presenter focused with limited hands-on experience for participants.
Micro Sessions: These sessions are 30 minutes long, fast-paced and deeply focused, and are quick-hit sessions that would be ideal for presenting research/data summaries, brief case studies, highlighting overviews from a strategy formulation/execution experience etc. No presentation/slides are required.
Strategy in the Real World: These sessions create a space for conference attendees to share their work (processes, outcomes, strategy successes, lessons learned) in an informal and interactive environment. Adapted from academic conferences, this “poster-session” style presentation will give participants the opportunity to talk about the nuts and bolts of their work with a variety of peers.
Micro-teach: The micro-teach is a great opportunity for you to present a fifteen-minute teaching activity to peers in order to get constructive feedback. The activity should be a fully-formed instructional activity with a learning outcome that can be formatively assessed. You will conduct the activity with a group of five or six participants; this is then observed by the larger group (effectively a mass peer observation). Following the activity, you will receive written feedback on the activity with the option of receiving specific feedback, such as did they engage the students effectively, or was the learning outcome adequately met, to be agreed at the beginning of the micro-teach. A micro-teach is 15 minutes long.
Workshops: Workshops are a way for you to share your originality with others. This is an opportunity for you to demonstrate new approaches and creativity. Your workshop should give delegates the opportunity to engage with new content, pedagogical methods and innovative activities throughout. When submitting your abstract, we ask you to include a summary of the intended learning outcomes and a workshop plan outlining activities and timings. Workshops are 60 minutes long.
Short presentation: Have you recently completed a project? Has it altered your approach and or thinking in some way? Short presentations are an ideal opportunity for you to report on recently completed projects, innovations or other developments in your field. Short presentations give you 20 minutes to take a high level overview of key elements of the project and share both what you did and what has changed (30 minutes total).
Long presentation: Have you completed a research project or worked on a recent innovation and evaluated the outcome? A long presentation will provide you with a forum in which you can disseminate your findings with some detail. Long presentations are 45 minutes with 15 minutes for questions (60 minutes total).
Panel Discussion: Do you want to present a wider view of a specific topic you have been working on? Is there a hot topic that you think is relevant to everyone irrespective of the sector they work in? Do you want to share your experiences alongside a diverse range of voices, experiences and environments? If so then you might want to hold or participate on a panel discussion. You should be capable of facilitating a room of people to encourage audience participation and interaction. We encourage submissions from individuals from different institutions and sectors working together who will bring unique perspectives on the topic being discussed. Panel discussions are 60 minutes long.
