Presentations to the judging panel

If you are shortlisted in a category that requires a presentation to the judging panel you will be invited to give a further presentation to the judges.  This is your opportunity to build on your submission and win a Learning Technologies Award.  Here is all the information you need to make an award winning presentation.

Who is on the judging panel?

You will be presenting to a panel of up to 3 judges, one of which will be the category chair. 

All judges will already be familiar with your written submission so there's no need to repeat large parts of it.

How long have we got to present?

You have 25 minutes in which to make your presentation with an additional 10 minutes for questions.

There will be 5 minutes of set up and take down time either side of the presentation but it is advisable to ensure you are more or less ready to present as soon as possible.

Who can attend?

You can bring as many representatives as you feel is necessary.  However, do bear in mind that you only have 25 minutes to make your presentation. 

The judges are always interested in the views, experiences and opinions of learners or users. If your submission involves clients, partners or other organisations it may be useful for them to attend if possible.

What to include?

Please review the category criteria and consider your presentation against these benchmarks.  The judges will already be familiar with your written submission so there is no need to reproduce it - this is your chance to enhance what you wrote.

While some corporate history may be required, remember to keep the focus on your project or product.  In some categories the application is less important than facts and figures.

Think about the feedback you have gathered, both qualitative and quantitative, and how this reflects against the criteria.  Do bear in mind, especially if you are a supplier, that supporting evidence from learners can be much more persuasive if your client is able to attend.

What equipment to bring?

You will need to bring your own laptop or portable device on which to run any slides, demos etc.  If you require sound then the speakers in your laptop or device should suffice as there will only be up to 3 judges in the room.  However, you are welcome to bring and set up your own speakers if you feel this is necessary.  

Some adaptors may be available but we strongly advise that you bring your own specific adaptors and cables (e.g. Lightning to VGA or HDMI) to suit your needs.  

The rooms will be set up for boardroom style and will be equipped with screens, projectors and Wifi and we will provide you with the Wifi code on your arrival. Some limited adaptors will be available but we strongly advise that you bring your own specific adaptors (e.g. Lightning to VGA or HMDI) to suit your needs.  

Do bear in mind that no technology is 100% reliable so we strongly recommend that you bring a back-up or local copy of any online information you wish to present.

Where's the presentation venue?

The London presentations will be held in the Executive Boxes at the Kia Oval in London, UK.

The nearest tube and mainline station is Vauxhall.  It is also accessible from Oval tube or from key mainline stations such as London Bridge, Bank, Oxford Circus, Victoria and Waterloo.  Limited parking is also available onsite.

The nearest entrance for the Executive Boxes is via the Alec Stewart Gate. 

When are the presentations being held?

The London presentations will be held on 3-5 October at the Kia Oval in Londin, UK.

The online presentations will be held on 25-29 September and 9-13 October.

We will give you the date on which your category is being judged when we email you to confirm the shortlist results  You will then be invited to pick a timeslot to suit you on that date.

Be aware that there will be over 150 presentations taking place in London and online.  The date of your presentation is fixed and not negotiable so you should try to ensure that you are available.  All time slots are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

If you have more than one entry shortlisted then we will make every effort to try to schedule them on the same date.  However, this may not be possible due to judge availability, the size of the shortlist and the large number of presentations taking place

Can I present online?

Most participants choose to make a presentation in person in London, UK, but those based outside the UK mainland may find it difficult to attend.  We offer a limited number of online presentations, which are allocated on a first come, first served basis and priority is given to those not based in the UK mainland.

If you would like to book an online presentation please contact us as soon as possible.
