Seminars

“A speaker must believe in the value and interest of their subject.”

A Seminar is defined as a presentation or a key-note speech. It lasts approximately from 30 – 120 minutes, and fits into the agenda in the same way as a medical presentation.

The goals of a seminar are to:

  •  Add variation to the agenda
  •  Give the Doctors something different to walk away with
  •  Add to the general value of the conference
