Speaker FAQs

Yes, NAGDCA uses a polling feature through the conference mobile app that allows you and the audience to view results in real time during your session. If your panel would like to utilize polling during your session, simply insert a slide at the point in the presentation that you’d like to pose the question to the audience. Include: the question and the multiple-choice options (polling questions must be multiple choice). We’ll take care of setting up the questions and displaying them at the proper time during your session.

There is no set number of slides per-person or per-presentation. We ask that speakers keep the timing of the session in mind – hour long session, 5 minutes for introduction, 10 minutes for Q&A ≈ 45 minutes of content. Coordinate with your panel to ensure everyone has ample time to present.

Yes. There are many different layout options to choose from. Feel free to mix and match the layouts that fit best with your content.

Company logos are not permitted. NAGDCA reserves the right to remove logos that are included in submitted presentations.

NAGDCA will provide a speaker ready room to allow panels to gather and review presentations. The location and times will be distributed to speakers a few week before the conference.
