Speaker Agreement

All presenters are required to abide by the PEAK2020 Speaker Agreement.


How do I add or remove a presenter from my session?

Please email our team at with the information, so that we can update our records.

Do I need to register for the conference if I will not be attending, only presenting my session?

You do not, although we need you to inform our team at to ensure that your session is not inadvertently cancelled due to lack of registration.

Are presenters required to have presentation materials?

Presentation materials are not required; however, conference attendees have grown accustomed to expecting them. For your presentation materials to be included in the conference app release, please send to by February 15, 2020. Materials sent after that date will be added as needed.

How are the session rooms typically set up?

Session rooms will be set theater style, to ensure that the space is available for the maximum number of attendees to attend your session. Each room is equipped with one microphone, an LCD projector and screen and one Microsoft based laptop.

Will presenters receive information about number of registrants attending the session?

Conference session attendance is fluid and allows for attendees to choose sessions on their own. Seating is first-come, first served with each room set to its allowable maximum in keeping with fire safety code regulations.

Is there a PEAK2020 template I should be using as a presenter?

No, however PEAK Grantmaking has created a power point template for presenters to use that embodies the look and feel of PEAK2020; this template is optional meaning presenters are not required to use it; but we recognize it is something that a majority of our presenters have asked us to provide consistently over the years.

What does my session type mean?

Curious what your session type means?  Wonder no more!

If, after reviewing the list below you still have questions, don’t hesitate to contact the PEAK Conference team directly at we’d be more than happy to address your question/concern.

  • Podium Session: A 75 minute breakout session.
  • Panel Presentation: A 75 minute breakout session of up to four panelists with a moderator; the moderator should have a predefined set of questions and the panelists should be prepared to answers those questions in the time allotted.
  • Roundtable Discussion: A 90 minute casual conversation with your professional peers to discuss a topic; share ideas and best practices.
  • Short Talk: A 20 minute podium presentation on a specific idea, recommendation, or case study with 20 minutes for Q&A. This is done twice during the time block with a 10 minute break in-between which allows attendees to attend another Short Talk.This works out to be a 20 min presentation + 20 min Q&A done twice with 2 different audiences. Due to the brevity of this session type it is highly encouraged to contain this session to a maximum of two presenters.
