Important notes for the Speakers/Panelists:

Thank you so much for agreeing to speak and participate at our conference.  Here are some dates to keep in mind as we move closer to GBFW20.

November 29, 2019: Speaker Info Letters emailed out

December 20, 2019: Presentations due to Grey Ag Services.   Please indicate if you approve staff creating handouts from your presentation. We can help with this – but need your materials by Dec 20.

Complimentary accommodations in Hanover will be arranged for speakers who live further afield.  Make sure that you have confirmed this requirement with us.  Hanover is about 15-20 min from Elmwood.  Check in at the Registration when you arrive at the Community Centre to pick up you nametag, and meal pass.  Staff will introduce you to the organizers, who will load your presentation onto the laptop (if you have not sent it in advance).  All speakers are invited to join us for our amazing hot roast beef meal the day that you are speaking.

Your time slot as indicated on the brochure includes a question period.  It is extremely important to organizers that the day remains on schedule. Organizers will give you signals as to remaining time allotted as needed.

Each Day will have a Chairperson to welcome attendees, introduce the speakers and make any housekeeping announcements.  They will also moderate the session.  Please note that the people asking questions will be given a microphone for the benefit of everyone (including the live stream audience).  Before responding to a question please repeat the question for clarification and everyones benefit.  AV staff will fit you with a headset.  You will also be given a slide advancer.  If  you have already emailed your presentation please bring a copy on a flash drive as a backup.
