You’ve sat through the technical; now here’s the “How to” in putting these strategies in place!
50 minute to two hour sessions. These intimate, open discussion sessions provide industry professionals the opportunity to collaborate with their peers. These opportunities provide attendees with practical solutions that they can immediately take back to their organization and begin implementing. Sessions will be set up in rounds to help facilitate the sharing of information amongst congress delegates. We encourage incorporating demonstration and/or hands-on activity, small group activities, role playing, program design and interactivity with attendees to keep them engaged.
KEYNOTE OR GENERAL SESSIONS
A 20-45 minute presentation addressing up to 2,500 attendees on a relevant, big picture issue dominating the benefits and healthcare industry. Inspirational or motivational speakers, senior level executives from Fortune 500 Companies, best-selling authors and governmental organizations are preferred.
Speakers, presenters and panelists have been asked to refrain from promoting themselves and their businesses during presentations. While we do understand that at times it may be necessary for a presenter to refer to his or her business by name, promotional efforts of any kind are considered a serious breach of the spirit of the conference.
