2015 Lightning Talk PPT Template

You get 20 slides and five minutes to get your message across (slides will auto-advance every 15 seconds, duplicating slides is allowed if you need more than 15 seconds per slide, but there may be no more than 20 slides in total). This format was inspired by Ignite events (http://igniteshow.com/) and there are some nice resources to help you figure out how to make the most of five minutes (http://www.speakerconfessions.com/2009/06/how-to-give-a-great-ignite-talk/). We will have 16 presenters (5 minutes each + 1 minute window between talks), split between two Lightning Talk sessions (morning and afternoon). At the end of each session we will have 5 minutes for questions from the audience. You must design your slides using the attached slide template. Note that there is a light and dark background option, accessible through the Layout dropdown menu.
