Facilitator of a freeform interactive session on the rough topic of “Doing more with less”, Elizabeth Whyte is looking for volunteers…
We hope you have had a chance to thoroughly familiarise yourself with the LIANZA 2009 Conference programme and that you’ve lined up an interesting few days for yourself. If you haven’t looked at it already, we’d like to draw your attention to the ‘What Would You Do? – Doing More with Less’ session on Tuesday afternoon. This has the potential to be a highly interactive and thought-provoking hour and a half where ideas are thrown up, spun around, and looked at from fresh new angles.
However, to ensure success we need to have presenters!
Have you already decided what you’d like to talk about? Would you be prepared to jump up and present on something dear to your heart? Or, have you got a question or issue you’d like to pose to your audience of participants? Maybe they will have some solutions or even just a new and different way to approach it.
If any of the above sounds like you, please get in touch with either Paul Sutherland (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Elizabeth Whyte (email@example.com) by Wednesday, 7 October. Don’t worry if your idea is not fully-formed or even if you don’t have all of the answers. Remember, these presentations are short and snappy conversation starters.
The only ‘rules’ we have are that each presentation must be no more than 5 minutes. If you’d like to use PowerPoint slides, maybe follow the Pecha Kucha formula and use only five: 1 minute per slide = 5 slides. These are not restrictions to make it difficult for you. They are a way to help you distil an idea or issue quickly and succinctly. You’ll have a chance to discuss more once the session breaks out. Think of it as a doing more with less kind of approach!
We want this time to be your chance to let loose with your creativity and imagination. We can’t do it alone though so don’t delay, get in touch!
