Remember, this is your conference and we invite you to contribute via:

  • Presentations: 15 to 20 mins with visual aids then Q & A. Come with a prepared presentation or an idea supported by visual reference (videos online, images, articles etc.). A great opportunity to provide well-considered opinions.
  • Debates: Two people present arguments for and against specific subjects. We invite the audience to get involved in the debate as well.
  • Discussions: Smaller groups discuss specific areas in a round table format.
  • Show & Tell: Do you have some future idea or technology or an invention to show? If so, then showcase it.

If you have an idea beforehand, or want to showcase some technology, then send us your ideas by 12:00pm on Friday May 5th to nik@nikolasbadminton.com along with your name, idea, and format that you’d like to use and we can include them for consideration by the attendees on the day.

Come with an open mind, and leave with more inspiration and perspectives than before. See you there.
