To Potential Sponsor

We had over 100 attendees at both Pearls of Practice 8 and Pharmacology Update 2020 and, due to a new national outreach program, anticipate an increase in the number of attendees at our spring webinar. 

According to Wikipedia and the Silicon Valley gurus a lightning talk is a short presentation lasting only a few minutes, given at a conference or similar forum. The goal of lightning talks is to articulate a topic in a quick, insightful, and clear manner. These concise and efficient talks are intended to grab the attention of the audience, convey key information.

We see these lightning talks as a way for your company speaker to showcase your newest product, new FDA approval or emerging data on a medication or treatment modality. The content would be the same as an in-person dinner meeting only condensed to a 10-minute-or-less presentation. The content of the lightning talk is entirely your preference.

While the webinar runs, Lightning Talks will be incorporated with the presentations. Here is a mockup page:

We need the Lightning Talk in an mp4 format, weblink, or YouTube video link by April 3, 2021 to give us time to ensure a good delivery. The button or banner for the webinar page should be approximately 1600x600 pixels.

W9 and 501C documents are available below. If you are interested, please register so we can send you updates and information.

Please let me know if you have any questions,
