Speaker Guidance Notes

On behalf of EphMRA, thank you very much for accepting our invitation to speak and we very much hope that this will be a highly successful event for all of us! 

Just wanted to clarify a few details about how we work with you at this online event.

EphMRA organises online calls so that we can run through your paper and manage the content with you and we would need you to participate in these.

Just something to highlight as well:

In the selection of papers the EphMRA has assumed that the author has ensured that permission has been obtained from clients or other third parties to present the information contained in the presentation.  You are indemnifying EphMRA and will ensure that EphMRA is not held liable for any claims from clients or other third parties incurred by the author’s failure to obtain permission to use information.  The authors should also be sure there is no infringement upon the copyright, right of use or any other right of intellectual property under any circumstances. 


We include your paper on our programme with the speakers outlined in the synopsis.  We appreciate that sometimes there needs to be a change of speaker - but ephmra would need to approve the new suggested speaker before being able to continue with the paper on the programme.


We use a template which is provided and this must be used.

However, we encourage multi media presentations and please check if you intend to use any film clips or music as you will need to have received approval and pay any royalties due (EphMRA is unable to pay these royalties). 

Company logos are only allowed on the first slide and must not be larger than the featured EphMRA logo.

Contact details etc should not feature anywhere on slides or be verbally mentioned during the presentation.

Feedback from our delegates has shown that they do not appreciate presentations being in any way promotional for your company or services.  EphMRA has the right to not proceed with your presentation should your presentation prove promotional.

The presentation structure:

Opening / title slide

Speaker bios

Sometimes a back ground slide is included

The above slides are managed and presented by the convenor.

The convenor then then hands over to the Speakers

Feedback has shown that delegates need to have the ‘key takeaways’ at the end of the presentation.  Please allow approximately 3 slides at the end of your presentation to show what the key learnings are from your presentation.

At the end there is a slide that says Q&A on it and the questions are managed by the Convenor who reviews the questions which have come into the Chat.

Platform Used

We use is zoom.

All presentations are recorded and we then edit the videos (mainly the start of each video) and put them in the members area of the web site or on a private password protected vimeo channel.

Recordings can’t be shared with you or downloaded sorry.

Attendee lists

Sorry due to data privacy we are not able to share any attendee contact details and in addition we do not issue any delegate lists.
