5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
We're excited to introduce you to a new way of doing short talks at AIHce EXP: SPARKtalks!
SPARKtalks are a fusion of the best parts of Ignite and TedTalk presentations. This format provides a casual, collegial atmosphere for attendees and will be a great start to this year's event. Selected speakers will share stories centered around a particular theme. For our inaugural SPARKtalks gathering, the theme is "One Moment in Time."
The SPARKtalks format is:
- One speaker telling a story that incorporates the stated theme
- 5 minutes in length, enforced through hilarious means if necessary
- 20 PowerPoint slides incorporating a mix of text, audio, image, and video files on a pre-set template (provided by AIHA) that auto-advance every 15 seconds
SPARKtalks provide professionals a way to sharpen presentation skills in a relaxed atmosphere. It's also a great way to share a meaningful story to a captive audience.
After the presentations, mingle and ask for feedback, network, or socialize. A cash bar will be available.
Note: SPARKtalks will not be recorded except for AIHA's promotional purposes.
