Tiny tip:Calling it a “keynote presentation” can help you to get a bigger name speaker who might not otherwise be interested in attending the workshop!
So many talkscrammed in thatthere’s no way todigest theinformation!Crafting the agenda (3)
Tiny tip:Speakers usually will fill all of their allotted time, even if some is designated for discussion. Give them a shorter time to speak and build in 20-30 min. specifically for discussion after every 3-4 speakers.
Tiny tip:If you notice lots of folks starting to slip out, it’s time for a break!Crafting the agenda (4)
Speaker gives a standard talk that has little to dowith the statedobjectives
May need to work more closely with speakers if it is important to meet certain objectives during the workshop.
Tiny tip:Setting a limit to the number of slides can ensure that speakers stay within time limits and stick to the topic
Tiny tip:If participants need to go offsite for lunch, then you need to build in extra time
Everyone is excited toget started, but has to wait for the speakerto load his presentation, figure out how toadvance the slides, &work the pointer.
Tiny tip:If participants have tent cards, then standing them on end can be a good way to indicate when one wants to talk.
Chair who has predetermined the outcome of thediscussions and refuses to consideralternative points of view.
