This year the 2016 Sustainability Summit features an exciting new format, one designed to drive sustainable change in Southeastern Wisconsin that can serve as a model for global change. In this two-day conference, Day 1 will feature speakers outlining state of the art ideas in environmental sustainability. Day 2 will feature a collaborative model, in which conference participants self-select tracks and work together as a team to develop practical sustainability action plans for the region. This will create a unique opportunity for businesses, academics, and other thought leaders to make this year's sustainability summit fun, productive, and transformative. Your expertise will help shape this collaborative process, guide meaningful actions, and foster new networks and connections.
The expectations are that the majority of each session is designed for questions and answers. To accomplish this, each speaker will have 15 minutes, and no more than 10 PowerPoint slides to talk about specifics related to the topic that they are addressing. Note, that there really is no time to talk about the speaker or their company. Please focus on substance. Please consult our Summit webpage (Online Program) for the full Summit program. Please register for the Summit online https://ennect.com/e2750 at your earliest convenience (you may register free of charge for the day of your presentation; optional registration for a second day is $50.).
Preferably at least a week before your presentation, please send your PowerPoint presentation (or other digital media) to Bradley Dunigan at BDunigan@PaysBig.com. Please label your digital media with your Name and Presentation Title so we can have it loaded on the proper laptop. House laptops are PC’s; if you bring a Mac, please allow extra time for plug in and testing. If you are bringing in your media on a jump drive, please be sure to save in PC format and not Mac.
We request (but do not require) permission to post your presentation on our website for the year following the Summit. On the day of your presentation, please arrive at least one hour before your session start time, check in at the Registration Desk, and proceed to your assigned room on the 3rd floor of the Potawatomi Hotel Conference area. We have also arranged for a block of rooms available for a discount at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. Please refer to our Location and Lodging page.
