Lightning Talks

Got something you’d like to say? Perhaps a gripe or a success. Or something you’d like to share with others?

If you can keep it to 4 minutes (or even shorter) you have the opportunity to give a lightning talk!

We’re encouraging people who haven’t spoken at IWMW before, or maybe haven’t even been to IWMW before, to share their experiences, thoughts and ideas with the, very encouraging, IWMW audience in a fast-paced but informal style.

No slides, no gimmicks, just your story in four minutes or less.

Please contact one of the event organisers (Claire Gibbons – who is the session chair – or Brian Kelly if you’d like to speak).

Go on – give it a go!
