Interested in leading your own session at ApparelCamp?
Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you prepare.
Here are some ideas:
- Do you have a story that could help others to learn from your experience?
- Present a case study of a time that you and your team developed a new product, entered a new market, took a risk, innovated etc.
- Do you have an idea for an interactive workshop? Use your creativity to develop a hands-on presentation that gets the audience engaged!
- Don’t want to be the only person in front of your peers? In a panel discussion, a moderator facilitates questions from the audience or a series of prepared questions for the panelists, but a significant part of the session is still interactive with a Q&A with the audience.
- Lead a Town Hall – The leader presents a short (20-30 minute max) informative topic, open-ended question or premise and opens the floor for expansion, comment, questions and general discussion.
