Technical Information for Speakers Presenting at
Global Radiology CME Conferences
Please upload your talks to the designated Dropbox emailed to you. Please check your presentation and be sure your talk conforms to the time limit. The audience is predominately general radiologists who are interested in practical advice; please try to keep academic charts, numbers, and graphs to a minimum.
You will be using your own laptop for the presentation by plugging it into the HDMI Cable on the podium. Please be sure to test your connection on the break before your talk or at the designated AV check time.
You will need to submit your slides well in advance of the conference for accreditation purposes. Pleases adhere to the deadlines so the accreditation can proceed. You will also receive an email requesting a statement of conflict of interest. Please be sure to reply in a timely manner as this should only take 2 minutes to fill out.

The first slide should show the title, presenter, and institutional affiliation.
The presentation should include a final summary slide.

The TED Commandments - rules every speaker needs to know for TED Talks
According to Tim Longhurst
1. Thou shalt not simply trot out thy usual shtick.
2. Thou shalt dream a great dream, or show forth a wondrous new thing, or share something thou hast never shared before.
3. Thou shalt reveal thy curiosity and thy passion.
4. Thou shalt tell a story.
5. Thou shalt freely comment on the utterances of other speakers for the sake of blessed connection and exquisite controversy.
6. Thou shalt not flaunt thine ego. Be thou vulnerable. Speak of thy failure as well as thy success.
7. Thou shalt not sell from the stage: neither thy company, thy goods, thy writings, nor thy desperate need for funding; lest thou be cast aside into outer darkness.
8. Thou shalt remember all the while: laughter is good.
9. Thou shalt not read thy speech.
10. Thou shalt not steal the time of them that follow thee.
