Presenter Helps

We thank you for the important role you will play in the 2021 Mission Leaders Conference. This page was created to provide you with all the information you will need to know as a presenter at Innovate 2021.  We will update content from time to time so please save this link and refer to it for future questions.

Workshop Information Form

This form must be completed by every presenter and submitted by March 16th. You will be asked for your bio (125 words or less), a photo of yourself and the track in which you will be presenting. If you indicate that you are the Primary Presenter you will be asked to complete the workshop description (125 words or less) including learning objectives and primary audience as well as a few other details. This form has a “save and continue” feature. At the bottom of the form, you can select SAVE or SUBMIT. By selecting save you will be provided a link to return and continue editing the form before submission. Once the form is submitted, you will not be able to return to it so we suggest you select save. This is what you will see:

Save this link and submit the link to your track leader as well for approval before submitting. If edits are needed, they can be made before submission. If you are presenting alone, you are the Primary Presenter. If you are presenting with others, 1 individual must be designated the Primary Presenter. Non-primary presenters will complete a truncated form.
