SESSION OVERVIEWS

We pride ourselves on being a conference that shares a treasure trove of strategies, frameworks, and actionable insights that attendees can immediately implement to achieve greater impact, and your work is vital in making this a reality. 

EFG attendees span different issue and cause areasfrom hunger to DEI, animal rights to education, and everything in betweenwhich is why we ask speakers to share learnings, frameworks, and key takeaways that can be applied to other organizations, regardless of cause area. A strong emphasis should be placed on your process–as opposed to just results–to demonstrate how your success and learnings can be replicated by others. Providing tangible resources, such as worksheets or sample materials, is encouraged.

*All sessions will include an EFG2024-branded slide deck and at least three key takeaways (unless otherwise discussed with the EFG team). Session leaders will submit a draft slide deck before content calls, which start April 8. Meredith will send session leaders an email about content call & slide deck prep in early April.*

Breakout Sessions

Breakouts are 45 minutes long, include Q&A, and must be well choreographed to deliver insights that attendees can leverage in their work, regardless of their cause area. 

We strongly advise that you include an interactive (show of hands, poll, etc.) or discussion component into your session, and we will be looking for directions for that activity in your presentation.

Keynote Sessions

Keynote sessions should be inspirational and provide inside knowledge, lessons learned and/or timely data. 

We will coordinate an on-site A/V run-through with you prior to your keynote address to ensure all looks as you expect and so that you may familiarize yourself with the set-up. 

Pre-Conference Summits

You will work closely with us and the summit leaders to create content that blends well with the closed door, collegial nature of these gatherings.

Workshop Sessions

Workshop sessions should provide in-depth, hands-on learning with concrete takeaways for attendees. 

Workshop are 1 hour and 45 minutes and are positioned as a working lunch. Your session should include ample time for small group discussion among peers, table work, and potential report-outs to the group.

Are You Planning To Use Video?
If you plan to use videos, you’ll need to embed your videos into your slide deck. Recommended formats are .avi, .mp4 or .mov. Sorry, no internet video will be permitted due to low quality and buffering challenges. If you are a main stage speaker, we’ll require the video file in addition to having it embedded in your deck.
