It is mandatory for all Speakers to attend the Speaker Briefing on the morning of the General Sessions Day at 8:00am Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 in the “Grandeur of the Seas” Conference Center (Deck 3). Please be on time to prevent delays. The Speaker Briefing is conducted by the Conference Organizer, Conference Emcee and Audio Visual Technician who will go over Speaking Reminders and Procedures. Be sure to introduce yourself to the Conference Emcee at the Speaker Briefing and ensure they know how to pronounce your name correctly.
Speakers will have a reserved seating section near the platform for convenient access. Plan to arrive at the session 5 minutes prior to the published start time to be familiar with the location of the Conference Emcee, Time Keeper & Audio Visual Technician.
Allow a couple of minutes in your assigned time slot for the Conference Emcee to introduce you. In the first row from the platform will be a Time Keeper with a large tabletop countdown timer in front of them, who will be responsible for setting a count-down how much time is remaining of each speaker presentation. Be familiar with the location of the Time Keeper and regularly check for your time management to ensure you do not go overtime.
