Presentation Format & Guidelines
Presentation Format & Guidelines
Key Points (please read the detailed version as well) 

1. Presentations should be approximately 30 to 60 minutes long.
2. Presenters may provide multiple individual presentations if they choose to do so. If multiple presentations are provided, in most cases these presentations will be spread out across the year (most likely one per conference weekends) giving the audience time to implement trainings/strategies.  Presenters are encouraged to have each presentation build (in a logical order) upon the previous video.
3. No infomercials – An up-sell during the final 5 minutes is allowed, however training/teaching provided during the rest of the presentation must be able to stand on its own & provide “Real Value” to the audience members.
4. Presentations should not be graphically enhanced (slides are fine) – i.e. No banners, graphically added names or text, etc. This will be added by the conference to maintain a similar feel across all presentations.
5. Do not verbally state or include written URL’s – Tell us where it should be added & our staff will customize the URL & add it graphically.
6. Lead Magnets should be cobranded with conference.
7. All presenters are required to e-sign the presenter’s agreement (to be provided by the conference).
9. All presenters will be sent a copy of their presentation (if requested), including any edits & digitally added notations and graphic at the end of the year.
Presentation Format & Guidelines
Detailed Version
All presentations are prerecorded and usually run between 30 & 60 minutes long. This is not only for the convenience of the speaker but also for the audience as we have digital nomads from around the globe attending.

We ask if a presenter accepts our invitation to speak at more than one conference date, please try to make the second presentation build on the first... A primary reason we have multiple weekend conferences instead of the standard single weeklong conference is to allow the audience to fully digest & implement the knowledge they gain & then come back to the next conference all ready to move forward with the next steps. (And often become bigger followers, and potential clients, of those presenters they have the biggest successes with).

We recommend that if you decide to use a slide deck in your presentation, open & close your presentation with video of yourself. We have found audiences place greater trust in those speakers they can place a face to & form a visual connection with.

We request that you send us a copy of any lead magnets & a copy of your deck. Please also co-brand your lead magnet with our logo (attached).

We do request that any images, videos, etc. used in your presentation are either copyright free or you have the rights to use, as well can provide us with the right to use when we broadcast your presentation or if we take clips out for promotions, etc.

While we definitely want this to be an opportunity for all our speakers to gain business, all presentations should provide knowledge that can be successfully implemented without the need of purchasing an up-sell - it is ok if purchasing the up-sell makes the process/strategy easier... but it should never be required.

Submit the following by September 24th:

- A recording of your presentation
- The URL for landing pages for any upsells or lead magnets (& the time stamps where you instruct the audience to "...follow the URL on the screen...")


For the Presentation:
- Do not worry about making it fancy. We will add an introduction & closure, as well as name tags and the URL's to your Up-sell and/or Lead magnet's landing pages (please provide us with the landing page's URL's)
- Any Up-sell should only be noted during the last 5 minutes of the presentation.
- Lead Magnets should not be provided (or how to receive them) until the last 5 minutes of the presentation.
- The material you provide in your presentation should be able to be successfully implemented by the audience even if your up-sell is not purchased... that said, it is ok if the up-sell makes the process easier - i.e. show how to do something, but you up-sell is a discounted rate on you doing it for them.
- At any point in the presentation (i.e. for the Up-sell) that you need to provide an URL, please simply state "...follow the URL provided on the screen" instead of stating it or showing it on a board. (And also let us know the times in the presentation this happens to ensure we do not miss one)
- For email addresses please do the same. We will add both to the screen digitally.

For the Tips Video:
 - Please include a brief natural pause between tips to make it easier for us to edit & cut out individual tips to use in our promotion of your presentation & the conference.
- As noted above, please provide between 5 to 10 tips... remember the more tips, the more promotional clips we can create & use to promote your presentation at the conference.
 - At the beginning of the tip video please use an introduction similar to "Hi I am Krystal Pino from .... & here is Digital Nomad 2020's tips of the day!"  
- At the end, a closure similar to "... To learn more, I invite you to come to my presentation at Digital Nomad 2020! - See you there!"

Note: If you need an extension on the due date for the presentation, we will work with you to see what can be done. But we highly encourage completing the tips video & sending it to us asap, as the earlier you send it (as well as more tips) the more we can use it for promoting.
