Speakers' Files

We have created a simple form which assists us in keeping all uploads accessible from one file.

Presentations should be prepared in MS PowerPoint and set up in 16:9 format (widescreen). To adopt this format, select File>Page Setup... and select 'Slides sized for: On-screen shown (16:9). Use of the 4:3 format will have an effect on the presentation and will result in graphics and text becoming distorted.
