Verbal Presentation Instructions

The default screen format is 16:9 (4:3 presentations will not be compromised).

The default aspect ratio for slides is 16:9 (wide screen) rather than 4:3. This is to reflect the fact that the standard template in the latest version of PowerPoint (Office 365 for Windows, Office 2016 for Mac) is 16:9 (wide screen) – which is in line with the format of most screens today (TVs, iPads, tablets, etc.).

However, please note that the older 4:3 (non-wide screen) format will be supported and your presentation will not be compromised in size or resolution if you choose to stay with this format.

Please ensure you visit the speaker support desk at the back of session room prior to your session to load your talk. 

A 33rd Annual Robert Guerin Trainees Meeting themed PowerPoint template is available for download, however, it is not compulsory. 

If you have any queries please contact us at +61 3 9249 1158 or email and we will be pleased to assist you.
