Speaker PPT

  • Please bring your PPT (required in 16:9 format) on a USB to the registration desk before sessions begin in the morning.

Headshot and Bio

Please send your 100-word biography and headshot to Mika at mika@icebergevents.com.au to be published on the conference website.


Please check the event program to view the length of your presentation. It is important that you do not go over your allocated presentation time. 

Videos are to be embedded in your slide rather than inputted as external links.

Note: PowerPoint presentations are required in 16:9 (widescreen) format. Please feel free to contact the team should you require assistance with ensuring your presentation is in this format. 

Tips for Creating your PowerPoint Presentation

Body Text:

  • Use a font that is easy to read. Arial, Verdana or Calibri tend to be the easiest to read on screens
  • Font should be no smaller than 18pt
  • Align text left. Centred text is harder to read
  • Write in point form, not complete sentences
  • Include 4-5 bullet points per slide
  • Avoid wordiness and clutter: A headline, a few bullet points, maybe an image – anything more than that and you risk losing your audience.


  • Heading font should be bigger than your body text.


  • Put dark text on a white background. This is easiest to read. If you must use a dark background – for instance, if your company uses a standard template with a dark background – make sure your text is quite light (white, cream or light grey) and increase the font size.

Images, Charts and Diagrams:

  • A chart, diagram or image can often convey much more to your audience than text
  • Don’t use low resolutions images as these can appear blurry on the screen.

Slide Timing:

  • Use 1-2 slides per minute of your presentation

All presenters are to see the AV Technical Director to provide their final presentation files. See the AV team at least 30 minutes before the first session of the day starts. The AV team is available from the time registration desk opens (refer to the program for this information).

Please arrive at the stage area 15 minutes before your presentation. You'll meet with the session's chairperson to discuss introductions and equipment use. As a speaker, it's your responsibility to be in the session room on time.
