Best Practices for Presenting/speaker:

Please ensure these are in place to ensure a smooth experience:

  • We highly recommend that all the speakers/Panelists have downloaded and installed the latest version of the Zoom App on their systems and are operating with Google Chrome.

  • We recommend that you have stable internet connectivity for a seamless experience and conduct of the demo.

  • While sharing a screen to showcase your presentation, we recommend not sharing the entire screen and share a specific application window. This will allow you to take and maintain notes while the session goes on.

  • Speaker won't be able to add or post any questions. They can only post answers to the posted questions

  • We recommend you coordinate and conduct a test with the organizers for Audio and Video prior to beginning your session.

  • Please be available at least 15 minutes prior to your session time and try to keep the background noise to a minimum.
