• Strong emphasis on local suppliers (event-related material, ingredients for catering, etc.)
Our guiding slogan is: "Inspire and support". These tips will help you shine!

We expect our forum audience to come to our conference seeking "inspiration and support" - they will appreciate meeting people who are visionaries, planners, and doers, to exchange information and ideas - and to be touched by great stories of courage and dedication. They want their imaginations to be stimulated and challenged. As speakers we have invited "story-tellers", people who can go beyond "reporting" all the way to inspiration and emotional appeal.

1.Strive to create the best talk you have ever given. Reveal something never seen before. Do something the audience will remember forever. Share an idea that could change the world.

2.Show us the real you. Share your passions, your dreams ... and also your fears. Be vulnerable. Speak of failure as well as success.

3.Make the complex plain. Don't try to dazzle intellectually. Don't speak in abstractions. Explain! Give examples. Tell stories. Be specific.

4.Connect with people's emotions. Make us laugh! Make us cry!

5.Feel free to comment on other speakers, to praise or to criticize. Controversy energizes! Enthusiastic endorsement is powerful!

6.Please stick to the schedule and make use of the facilitator, who will discreetly remind you of the time left!
Our tech guys will document the event using photos and/or video. They've asked us to remind you of some basics to help them succeed and to help prevent 'death by powerpoint':

A single, strong, graphic image or succinct line of text will tell your story better than a crowded collage or packed paragraph. Remember, people need to process everything you’re saying while simultaneously absorbing your slides. Rather than one complex slide, show several slides, each with one idea, image or data point.

Please eliminate slides that are essentially Headline + Bullet-Points.

If you're speaking in a workshop, you have 15 - max. 20 minutes allocated for your talk. Our facilitators will remind you discreetly about the time you have left at an interval of 5 min, 3 min and 1 minute. The workshops are intended to be interactive, so there is plenty of time after your 15 minutes to engage the audience.

In the plenary, you have 30 minutes speaking time. Our facilitators will remind you discreetly about the time you have left at an interval of 5 min, 3 min and 1 minute.

You rarely need more than six lines of text on a slide. Often, only a line or two will do.

Sans-serif fonts (like Helvetica) are easier to read at a distance than serif fonts (like Times New Roman).

A simple, elegant background behind your text should be used to complement and enhance the readability of your words. If using a dark or black background, you may want to make the text bold.
Yes, there are a lot of people in front of you, but they want to hear what you
have to say. Don't be afraid to be a little bit proud of what you are talking about.
You are on the stage for a reason.

Just before you speak...take a deep breath.

Remember, you were chosen to be part of a great group of people sharing ideas.

Then do it. Share what you have...

...don't worry - everyone is going to love you. A few technical considerations... Lastly... Welcome to Visby! We're honored to have you with us.

Everything is proceeding smoothly to make this an event to remember.

On the day of the Forum, the speakers for each session will be wired
with a headset microphone, if necessary. Speakers for each session shall
sit in the front row and will be introduced by the chairman of the session.

The facilitator/chairman of each workshop will take the time to be in touch
with you personally before your talk, and will discuss your introduction with you.
