Lightning Talks

Educational Video

Lightning Talks are always a highlight of the annual  SAQA conferences. Each speaker creates a presentation of 20 slides and speaks about each slide for 20 seconds resulting in a fast-paced informative talk that is six minutes and 40 seconds long.

Topics have included travel inspiration, artistic journeys, vintage linens, penguins, surface design, finding your muse, creative kids, pattern making, building self-confidence, and so much more!
