Your presentation can be augmented by a PPT, but your delivery is dynamic, engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking.

Table Ambassador:

Our Table Ambassadors should have senior-level industry knowledge relating to one or more of the three streams, in order to lead discussions for each of 9 sub-topics (to be chosen by the each group).
