    Breakdown your outline with time stamps so you can tell yourself exactly how much time you can spend on each area. Run through your presentation with these time stamps in mind with a colleague or a very kind family member and see if these are on-point or astronomically incorrect.


    ASUG HQ is hoping to offer color cards in each room that you can utilize to help with your timing. You would ask someone to volunteer if they would be interested in timing you and hold up the color card at the minute mark below:


    45 Minute Session

    • Green card – 20 minute mark
    • Yellow card – 25 minute mark
    • Red card – 30 minute mark


    60 Minute Session

    • Green card – 35 minute mark
    • Yellow card – 40 minute mark
    • Red card – 45 minute mark

    Revisions of PowerPoint

    PowerPoints are due on Monday, April 5. Upload instructions can be found on the Speaker Resource Page. If changes need to be made after the presentation has been uploaded, please re-upload your presentation the same way you uploaded the original one. The newer version will automatically replace the older version. No changes will be accepted after May 3 as the presentations will be live for conference attendees.


    Room configurations
    A/V set up can be found on the Speaker Resource Page. Please remember to bring your own laptop as laptops will not be provided.
