Session Preparedness in a Nutshell
BCNPHA offers a variety of session types at our RENT events and annual conference. Some of our presenters are experts in their field and seasoned facilitators. We also encourage our members - who have the best local knowledge to share - to present sessions, sit on or moderate panels and facilitate interactive, hands-on workshops. This guide is for anyone, in either group, interested in mastering the art of presenting. These tips apply to lecture style presentations and when presenting at workshops and panels.
