Deadlines for PD Week Presentations

Presentation slides are due October 22.

If you are using slides in your presentation:

  • Please provide two versions of your slide deck: one in English and one in French; if you are unable to provide a translation of your deck, please make sure to send the deck to your FMI contact before October 8th – that will give us time to complete the translation before the conference week.
  • Make sure to use the PD Week 2021 Slides Template (pptx) and forward a final copy to your fmi contact before October 22, 2021.

If you are a panelist and not sure if you need slides, please contact us.
