2018 SAQA Conference - Lightning Talks 

A Lightning Talk is a fast-paced lecture style which speakers and audiences alike love. Each speaker creates a presentation of 20 slides and then speaks about each slide for 20 seconds. This results in a fast-paced informative presentation that is six minutes and 40 seconds long.

Some aficionados of this time of speaking event describe it as a combination of office presentation meets beat-the-clock performance art. Or, another way to look at it is, infomercial meets poetry slam. It’s fun for presenter and listener.

They will be very similar to the talks we had at the Philadelphia conference (watch SAQA webinar featuring six of the talks) and at the Lincoln conference (view list).

At the 2018 Conference, there will be three sessions:

Speakers still needed!

If you want to take part in the SAQA Lightning Talks sessions at the 2018 conference, please contact Carrie Payne.

In the past, we had more speakers than time slots - sign up early if you are interested! Note that there is no compensation offered for speaking.
