The Lightning Round Session will include up to eight presenters, each of whom will present for approximately ten minutes. In keeping with tradition, this session will ask presenters to provide concise insights into a particular case study, and will limit them to a powerpoint presentation of twenty slides and a total allowed time of twenty seconds spent on each slide. The seven minutes of formal presentation will be followed by three minutes of Q&A. To be considered for the Lightning Round, please prepare a 150 – 250 word summary of what you propose to present, and how the Lightning Round format would benefit this topic.
