I Would Like to Present

Most speakers present in all cities - Melbourne, Canberra and last is Sydney which is live streamed the recording is posted on tv.ssw.com a couple of days later.

Every month the User Group is full of highly technical early adopters of technology and our attendees are always open to seeing presentations on the latest technologies. We welcome companies and guest presenters to present new topics and new gadgets. We do encourage you to delve beyond the sales and marketing pitch and show us how it was built, not just why it was built. Here's a quick list of some tips for presenters:

  • Presentation needs to be directed at a highly technical audience (No sales pitch)
  • Introduce new technology
  • Samples and giveaway prizes for attendees are great
  • Prior to the meeting do a rehearsal - make a time with Adam
  • Send a summary of your presentation for inclusion into the SSW Newsletter (one week prior to the User Group)
  • Your session will be recorded by the guys from SSW TV straight from the projector cable. Very simpler for presenters

If you think you're up for the challenge and have something new to show us please contact Adam Cogan.
