General Directions for Using this Template This template has been designed to provide you a rough outline to prepare a top-notch presentation. It is consistent with the “Speaker’s Guide to Power Point” by Todd Grimm included in your speaker packet. Please keep the following in mind when using this document. • Print this slide for reference and then delete it from your file. • The number of slides represents general ideas to cover. Please insert slides as needed for your presentation. • Please type over the general titles and bullet points with your information. • Please limit the use of your company logo to the first and last slide as indicated in this document. • Although there is a “questions” slide at the end, please integrate audience engagement throughout your presentation. • If you will be submitting a presentation rather than paper for the proceedings, please use the notes section for each slide to provide additional information. This should explain what is on the slide and keep your slide simple and consistent with good presentation guidelines. These notes will be included in the pdf of your presentation for the proceedings. • Before sending to SME, save your file as the speaker’s last name.
