SSP Speaker Information & Tips
Check out this informational video to help you prepare for your upcoming speaking engagement. It is divided into two parts. In part 1, I will review general information about the SSP Annual Meeting that is important for all speakers, such as on-site logistics and room layout, AV requirements, broadcast basics, and a few practical words on how to avoid some very common technical problems (particularly involving PowerPoint slides). In part 2, you'll hear tips and best practices for preparing and delivering your presentation.
