QonFab is a presentation in which each presenter has 5 minutes to present 3- 20 slides. The goal is to allow people to meet, share their work, and exchange ideas. A typical QonFab night includes 8 to 14 presentations followed by a cocktail party.
QonFab is about helping to make content Fab! We are not a one night stand but a relationship for those willing to invest in The QonFab system to become better communicators.
All content is an exchange and we value our presenters and listeners with equality.
Maybe you’ve never given a talk before, and you’d like to start small. For a QonFab Talk you only need to make three – 20 slides – always ending with a question to your audience!
Maybe you’re nervous and you’re afraid you’ll mess up. It’s a lot easier to plan and deliver a five minute talk than it is to deliver a long talk. And if you do mess up, at least the painful part will be over quickly. If you are a pro-slide talk presenter we can help you take it to the next level!
What can you talk about? Anything you want – boast about something you did, or tell a short cautionary story – we love new and engaging IDEAS.
“How can I squeeze a whole talk into five minutes?”
The point is that because the talk is only five minutes long, you don’t have to take it so seriously. Just try to say something brief and interesting, and then get out in a hurry. If people want to follow up or ask questions, they will catch you at the cocktail party after to answer your question. Remember all QonFab talks end with a question.
Listening is a skill that intelligent people value, but you want to attend QonFab for the exchange of new ideas and network of opportunities. And, remember if the talk turns out to be dull, or if the person giving the talk turns out to be a really bad speaker, well, at least it’s over in five minutes. And with QonFab Talks you’re never stuck in some boring lecture for forty-five minutes and you get to help others create more dynamic content. QuonFab is about helping to make content Fab!
