TNC22 Lightning Talks – the call for proposals is now open

TNC22 Lightning Talks - call for proposals is now open

The time has come for us to announce that the call for proposals for TNC22 Lightning Talks is now officially open.

Lightning Talks sessions have always been very popular at TNC bringing sparkle and fun to our conference through the years.

But, what’s all the fuss about Lightning Talks?

Lightning Talks focus on one key point. This can be a successful project, a story, a collaboration invitation, a demonstration or just useful advice. It is an opportunity for ideas to get the attention they deserve, in exactly 5 minutes!

It’s true, it can be daunting to get up on such a big stage and captivate the TNC audience in such a short amount of time, but lightning talks presenters have carte blanche to be as creative as they wish and can put their heart and soul in their performance.

To ensure that your proposal stands out and is successfully included in this year’s conference programme, here are some simple, but useful steps.
