Lighting presentations are quick, engaging, inspirational, and most importantly, fun. Presenters should highlight an idea, success, approach, or trend; bring to light an issue or challenge; or give a personal perspective on a topic. Lightning presentations are not intended to provide the details of your work but rather inspire attendees to seek you out to learn more.
