Ignite© Presentation-2014

logo_color1As part of the Students and Young Professionals Track we plan to hold Ignite© sessions.

Ignite© sessions are vibrant, fast-paced sessions designed to generate awareness and stimulate the exchange of exciting ideas in a short time period. A perfect introduction for first time speakers, yet also great for experienced speakers, the Ignite© sessions are designed to provide an engaging platform for speakers to exchange their ideas based around a specific topic.
Ignite© sessions will be scheduled for 90 minutes (including 30 minutes for s Q/A) and consist of up to ten speakers. Each Ignite© talk will feature 20 slides and will be allotted five-minutes to present on a specific theme while their PowerPoint presentation automatically advances every 15 seconds, creating a truly energetic and dynamic session. Although there will be no time scheduled between individual presentations for questions and answers, the remainder of the session time a chair will encourage and facilitate the question and answer session for extended discussion in a panel format.

Ignite© sessions are intended to complement the traditional scientific program. These sessions will provide an opportunity for students and young professionals to share information with their colleagues that would not fit into the usual session types. The more concise speaking slot and rapid slide transitions lend themselves to a more conversational and storytelling presentation style. Given 5 minutes to speak and brief visual aids, what would you share with others? What would you most like to learn from your colleagues?

Recommended Ignite© topics are, but not limited to:

  • Ethics, morals and Law
  • Ethical Conflicts
  • Is “Business Ethics” an Oxymoron?
  • Global and Cultural Perspectives of Ethics
  • Codes of Conduct
  • Ethics Case Studies

You may also propose a different topic within the scope of the Symposium.

The Ignite© session will be held on Friday, May 23, 2014 and will last 90 minutes in total, 5 minutes per speaker.

The Ignite© sessions are included in the conference participation fee. All registered Symposium participants may take part in the Ignite© Session, but priority will be given to Students and Young Professionals.

Ignite© Presentation Proposals should be submitted using the Ignite© Presentation Proposal Form no later than April 4 May 1, 2014.
